Monitor Size

I'm going to try to avoid any inappropriate humor here, but when it comes to monitors, size does matter. :^) Like most things in the PC, in some ways "bigger is better" but this is not always the case--here it is. Larger monitors allow for use of higher-resolution graphics modes and can enhance the computing experience, but they can also have significant drawbacks. Furthermore, it isn't always that simple to determine what size monitor makes sense. This section looks at monitor size and related issues.
