One of the most important considerations when buying a computer is the monitor. After all, you'll be staring at it day in, day out, and if you don't like what you see, it could mean trouble. In the past, choosing a monitor was simple: Product features were uncomplicated, model choices were limited, and the basic technology was relatively easy to understand.
These days, though, it's not an easy decision to make. Rapid developments in cathode ray tube (CRT) and liquid crystal display (LCD) monitors have made selecting the right monitor a process fraught with a mind-boggling array of choices. More than size and price, you must consider your office space requirements, employee usage and more. The good news: Prices are coming way down for both types of monitors. And that means you can be choosier when it comes to decision time.
