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?

Could get this and only spend $65 extra per screen
Or get this for $45 per screen

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