At 0930,folks walked into my office at the clinic and said"we are here to put in your computer".They put in a Dell with a 1.8 Chip,512 of RAM,100 Gig hard Drive and a 21" Sony Trinitron monitor.I am sure it is nice but the screen is so big my arms are not long enough.I want my old computer and 17" monitor back since I am computer illiterate. cpermd

Man those are some nice toys. Is there a DVD rom to play movies on that 21 inch screen? (BTW, name change since many have questioned my choice of "Flip")

Hell this thing will burn DVDs and CDs This monitor is HUGE I don't word process,nothing that complicated.I sit on my ass,teach Emergency Medicine and Family Practice Medicine and play in my gun sites and stock sites.Some email.This is a huge waste of resources.I have already had the computer savvy residents in here burning CDs and DVDs.I now have my own personal copy of "Grease" cpermd

I'll trade you the 17" Sony Trinitron that I got with my Dell five years ago! Or if you can wait, I'll upgrade to a newer system later this year. [;)] Edited to add: I do lots of writing but also some graphics and layout/desktop publishing.

Just readjust the way your mouse tracks to compensate for the larger screen. Or else change the monitor display settings to a lower set of numbers so everything is bigger on screen.
