Arrived today, and WOW it is beautiful!! Also quite a bit bigger than I expected. And of course looks much nicer than an 18" CRT, both screen-wise and looks ^_^ Wobbles a bit but the desk is crap.

Wow that looks pretty good actually, the contrast is closer to 1:1 so all the colours are more accurate, and portable is always great!

Unfortunately yes, too bad I went for a 1080p 24" Samsung instead of a 7" one with as high a res an iPhone.
