I just picked up & installed an apple 23" wide screen display . . . i could just give it a great big hug, it's dreamy!
Anyone doing lots of development or web work -- highly recommended. Side-by-side pages / windows is phenominal!

Lucky you!! That's big! I work on two 17" screens running off the one computer, but would probably give up my two for just one of those... no, wait, I definately would.[left][font=Arial]"If you come to a fork in the road, take it" - Yogi Berra [/font][/left]

Mmm, that's a beautiful monitor. I hope to treat myself to one next Christmas. Enjoy!

Awesome screen! I drooled over one of those years ago. I work on two screens so when I maximize a window it takes up one of the full screens. Have often wondered how that worked on one large screen. Do you have to resize everything yourself?

TY - I have been drooling for years as well, and finally was able to rationalize it.
I used to use a 20.5" sony LCD and a 17" samsung LCD side by side. Now I use the 23" cinema display with the 20.5" sony to the left. The 20.5" runs at 1600x1200 and the 23" cinema runs at 1920x1200, so I don't have to resize anything. It's got a great workflow aesthetic; I think I was just built to need a fair amount of screen real-estate.
The wide format monitors are by far preferable, and once you get used to it, there's no going back. Around spring time I will likely punt off these monitors to one of my developers and pick up a 30" cinema, or sooner if they come down in price. If I'm spending 12-16 hours a day in front of it, it's not really considered a "luxury item", IMO. That and you feel like the mad overlord that controls the internet sitting in front of it. :P

If you want two browser windows open and visible on the one monitor.. do you have to resize them yourself?
