Sometimes you get so accustomed to your surroundings, you take them for granted. That was what happened to me this week. The children and I went to six flags in NJ. We stayed at The Best Western and they had one computer! My main computer has a widescreen LCD monitor, similar to this viewsonic monitor. (If you follow the link, you will see some excellent prices.) It wasn't until I saw the computer at the hotel, that I realized the difference. (I'm sure you're wondering why I didn't bring my laptop. Well, I figured...keeping track of 6 kids and all the luggage would be more than a handful.) Not only is the screen wide and narrlow, but you also save space on your desk.
What's your take? We play DVDs on the computer, to entertain The Little One. Our computer is much more than a task master for work or for school. With the right monitor, many people may even give up their TVs!
