Better in what sense? Your LCD backlit screens probably have worse color quality than modern laptops. They also do make laptops with higher resolutions (like 1920x1080)...It's sad when phone displays offer better resolutions on smaller screens (like 720p on my Galaxy Nexus), that is close to the 1366x768 resolution you find in many laptops.

These laptops don't, they actually have a better color gamut. Just to reiterate on resolution this is another laptop I have, for a 17" it did 1920 by 1200 (most TN panels produced aren't manufactured with that kind of resolution to cut costs). Also I have a inspiron N7110 with a res of 1600 by 900 and viewing angles are just horrible overall, colors are not as great but better than the washed out color of my toshiba M115-3094

Never letting these babies go.

I have a laptop, I can't remember the brand, anyway, it is sitting in my closet right now which it has about the same resolution size as my brother's 27" iMac's resolution. I couldn't remember exactly the size which I know it's over 2300x1600 something like that. I will get it fixed and put windows 7 on it. Right now, it has Windows XP, I think. I am not letting it go.

The rest of the laptops I have, they have same 1920x1080 resolution. One of them has 17" screen... it's heavy to carry around so I keep it here. I take my modern laptop with me wherever I go.

Just picked up a Thunderbolt Display and threw a Corsair 240 Force GT SSD in the Macbook Pro. Which is the late 2011 2.4ghz i7 model. So yeah ... pretty pleased :p

Stage one (okay, make that three) of my plan is now complete. The new desk is installed.

I'm loving all this desk (really, it's a table) space. The old desk was way too cramped.

I understand what you're saying. Obviously owning a Macbook Pro I want a nice quality to my screen and not just resolution (as resolution is not as important as colour to me as a designer) ... and to be honest, most modern laptops under ?500 have horrendous screens with terrible viewing angles. I know this because I bought a few before switching to Apple. No problems since and I'll never switch back. You like what you like don't you? And if these work for you, that's awesome :)

I sure do, but you're right when you spend the money you know what you're getting in most cases.

I moved to a more industrial space for a little while. Kind of nice to get out of the cubicle...

Moved today and spent a while fixing up my new workspace, opted out of my second monitor for more desk space until i can get another OLED monitor. PC is behind the wall which is my closet, which is ok cause the closet is frekin HUUUUUUGE lol. Receiver is in there as well, getting a remote IR receiver for my remote so I dont have to go in the closet for anything.

Looks good, when I moved I was going to do the same thing with my hackintosh but in the end I got lazy and just got an iMac :p But this is pretty much spot on what I wanted to do! Real cool to see someone else did it!

Yep, I know the monitor on the right is sort of lower than the rest. Have to find something to set him on. Just got a new Dell 24 in the middle. That is a picture of my "Computer repair office"

The tower you see on the floor, is my server and it's only powering the top left monitor.

This machine is powering the other 4

multi monitors to create several awesome threads at once! That's how you do it!

Here's my current set-up. I like to change things around often, though :)
