    I think a 20" widescreen is a bit small.

    I'm coming from a 17" Sony. 20" widescreen would be huge to me. I also don't want to spend a lot of money.

    a 20" widescreen is not bigger than a 17" 4:3

    Im using that exact screen right now. Great screen, I have no complaints. True a 20'' wide isnt huge compared to a 20" standard, but ratio wise I love having it wide, it allows me to tile things side to side more conviently than before (I came from a 17 standard that crapped out on me) and got this thing for around $160 on a black friday sale.

    If the 20" widescreen had a better resolution, couldn't I effectively have more usuable space on the monitor? I'm not being a smartass, i'm wondering.
