I can still remember 1991 when I bought my first computer display for my first computer. It was $315 for a 14" CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) non-Interlaced monitor that had an actual viewing size of around 13" and the display was about as flat as a beach ball. Back in those days a 17" CRT display cost nearly $1,000 or more and they were as deep as they were wide. It's been about 3 years since LCD (Liquid Cristal Display) began taking over the computer industry and they've been dropping in price every year as they became more mainstream.
Now for the first time I'm seeing 24" LCD displays like the Soyo 24" LCD below the $300 mark and even below $250 on Black Friday. While this is a lesser known brand, it does signal the wide-spread production of 24" LCD panels so they can be produced and sold at these prices. This will eventually lead to more companies hitting the $300 price point. This means we can build some fairly cheap computers with massive 24" high-resolution displays and I'll probably make it a project to build a 24" all-in-one media center PC if I can get one of these Black Friday deals.
