At Comdex Samsung showed off the largest LCD yet made: 46"

How'd you like that as your computer monitor?

Quite a strange aspect ratio on the 17" powerbook - only 900 pixels high. But I guess with all the tool pallets, it leaves you with a normal size viewing area. Good for watching wide-screen movies though!

i always found the screen ratio of the 22" and 23" apple cinema and studio displays to be a little odd also.

im a little confused as to why apple also lauched 12" titatium...seems like that would only compete with the ibook market.

a 46" display would be pretty sweet, but im not sure my mind could handle seeing alias that big...not to mention how far you'd have to move to get to the menu's....

I wonder about the radiation emitted from that 46" screen if used as a monitor rather tha a tv?

It's an LCD, so it's not shooting cathode rays at your eyes - just backlit crystals.

the 17" powerbook is awesome, but for those stuck in PC-land, check out the Sony Vaio laptop with the 16.1" screen
