If you yearn for a skinny Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) flat-panel monitor but can't justify spending the big bucks, how about settling for a standard Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) monitor with one of the best features of a high-ticket LCD: a flat screen?

For less than half the price of a 15-inch LCD ($1,100 average street), you can get a 17-inch CRT with a virtually flat display starting at $299 (street). No tiny footprint here, but you will get flat-screen technology at an affordable price.
