    Cyber Monday? LOL

    I'm looking for a pair of additional 24" monitors to run an Eyefinity setup. I looked at Newegg all weekend, and not a single one of the monitors they had on sale actually pivot to portrait mode. Walmart? Nope. SamsClub? Nope.

    I'm not going to pay $100 more just for the ability to use portrait mode. That's about 5 whole gallons of stupid, right there.

    Anyone know of a decent online store that sells a relatively affordable 24 inch monitor that's 1920x1200 and pivots and has DVI input?

    Thanks for the suggestion. I'll head back to the egg and take a look at 24s with a thin lower bezel.
