There are couple of 22“ LCD displays available with stunning 3480x2400 resolution from IBM and Viewsonic. Apparently video cards are barely catching up, ATI requires two DVI cables to feed the beast and it seems like it has to render four 1920x1200 tiles. I had seen information about IBM prototype unit about a year ago. At the time projected retail price was $22K. However, apparently technology progress was significant since then and now both units retail for around $6-7K. I am wondering if in another year or two they will come down to $2K. My current work setup is dual 1280x1024 monitors which equals to slightly more that 1/4 of this screen real estate.

On the other hand, I am wondering how much exactly will I be able to see on those Web pages formatted with fixed 8pt fonts. Game playing at 1600x1200 will be covering less than 1/4 of the screen area. That's going to be like like playing on 10“ diagonal screen...
