    I`ve heard people discuss using this to counteract vision impairment. A real "geek" would have multiple monitors and not just the one.

    Just saw this on stumbleupon

    "In 2005 I was working for a "telemarketing" firm somewhere on the east coast. Morale was so bad at the company, management went to great lengths to keep people that actually worked hard. One of the ways they did this was a short lived but highly entertaining award for "Employee of the Month". The employee was treated to answering calls from a "special" desk with a "42" monitor. Here is the first and last employee of the month winner. The next months` winner could not go more than two days with the XL monitor stating his "retinas were getting burned out by the the screen".

    We have 46 inch monitors on desks in our office as the amount of data they are required to display becomes unreadable on smaller screens. They are not anyone`s workstation but you could still get this sort of photo (if my work wasn`t so top secret that taking a camera into the office would result in death). What`s worse is that 2 people in my team have 5+ screens on their desks. That is a bit over the top in my opinion.

    Although bankers do use big screens, such screens are usually high resolution.

    by the look of this image, that is a TV, So it probably has a resolution of 1920x1080 or less. You can get 15" Monitors with such resolution, you;d be better off with 3 of them...

    By the size of that window, it looks like he`s got a pretty low resolution for a screen that big. Bit of a waste really as everything will just be stretched.

    That said, I`m pretty sure they don`t do a 5000 x 6000 resolution, so yeah...

    at my last job, the accountant was a blind woman, who had one of these monitors! people would walk into her office and still not know if she was in there or not until she spoke! why did they hire a blind accountant?!? probably one of the reasons why they are closing for good in january!
