    I have a 24" monitor at the moment, I'd like to get a much smaller monitor to act as a secondary, but I can't seem to find many.

    I came across this, it can act as a second monitor but I'm unsure about it.

    I'd like a second monitor but space and price are not on my side.

    Advise?

    Why not just get a 15"? That's not really a monitor... it's a digital photo frame.
    You sure you don't have a lot of space left? Can't mount anything on the wall, if there is one nearby?

    :rofl: lol....that's the exact same thing I got my Mom for mothers day. That thing would be about useless as a monitor.

    You could get you a cheap 20 inch flat panel for less than that picture frame.....if you don't have space for a flat panel monitor you need to buy a new desk bf anything else

    No walls nearby, the desk is facing out the desk is facing out a window, 15" would be too big

    It can be used as a monitor though. Budget would be $130, have a meter long desk so another 15" would be the length of the desk, which I don't want.

    Don't have the room or money for a new desk and I really like the current one. Here's something that I would like to buy, but it can only be bought with the monitor

    do it

    first one I heard about these little monitors are the 7" Mimos.
    Samsung, I believe has two of those, an 8" and that 10"
    Sony probably has one too

    perfect for widgets, IM, and other little things,... but that's what its intended for. just don't expect that it will replace a DVI/VGA monitor.

    It's a glass desk and I really don't like the look of those.

    Do you have any of the model numbers for any of the samsung/sony ones? It's only use would be for widgets, im, winamp, some of the palettes in photoshop

    EDIT: Mis-read your post, i thought you said there were 2 different samsung ones. Thanks!
