This could be seriously cool...

In the year 2000, I bought 2- 21" (1600x1200) monitors with my advance from the book Expert One on One Oracle.  I have one at home and one at work that I use still.  They cost me - as much as this monster does today.

That is so my next monitor.  Can  you imagine?  They have a little box that plugs into the PCMCIA slot on your laptop (I only use a laptop) and with that and the video out of the laptop itself, you can actually drive a beast like that.

I might never leave my office again :)

What an amazing display! I wish I were an Oracle DBA / developer; I'd so get one with money to spare. Very cool!

That is a very cool setup. I want one!!!

Coincidentally, I was provided 2-20" LCD's at work recently. Having two monitors allows for much better productivity while doing DBA work. I can't even imagine 5. Next task is to get multi-displays going at home in my office.

Have a nice weekend Tom.

Your productivity would go through the roof.

But I guess you have to get a expensive graphics card too?

I saw this video of Jeff Han working a large multi-touch display and was just blown away. The freedom to break away from a keyboard and mouse and virtually manipulate objects was amazing.

It would be great to visually snap together code just like Lego bricks.

Boy I bet Jeff Han buys Glass-Plus by the case!

my current monitor at work:
great place to put my photos!
Mind you: most of the time I'm lost on what to put on it...

Check out Matrox DualHead2Go and TripleHead2Go GXM ( Graphics Expansion Module ) boxes.
These are small palm sized external boxes for driving multiple monitors (2 or 3 - widescreen too ).

in case you are wondering. ACER has a 24 inch flat screen for $600 on tigerdirect.

The prices are dropping radically now that Dell came out with the 30 inch flat screens.
