Those Apple 17" are worth a close look:
- Flat sceen (verticaly and horizontaly;
- Compensates for color shift and maintains color calibration (adjust its
internal electron beam);
- Two ports USB hub integrated.
..and good looking too :-)
Sure enough, 21" displays are great to use ( I had one for 3 years) but
two 17" are a much better way to work. And you will often be able to get
2 of them for less than the price of a 21"!!
My advise: get two 17" displays right now if you can; otherwise, get the
best 17" you can + a cheap 14" and use this one to store your palettes.
Have a good day!
