It’s all just dots

I’ve bought a new monitor. (My parents’ monitor went bonkers, so I donated mine as it’s a splendid excuse for a new one.)

I plumped for a Dell 2001FP, waiting just long enough for Dell to drop the price by £109. It’s 20.1 in, 1600×1200, with DVI, USB hub, etc. Bit of a hefty beast, but a big step up from 1024×768. Double the dots, in fact.

It’s very impressive. No dead pixels as far as I can tell. I’ve spent the afternoon in dual-screen heaven doing work stuff on the Mac. Mmm, 3,000,000 pixels. The Spectrum had 49,152.
