I bought a Westinghouse 22 in widescreen monitor a couple months ago,
because it was the cheapest I could find and am using it with an old
laptop.  The display is much better than I expected, and it's great to
be able to have 6 very readable xterms on the same VT.  I'm using it
right now, pulling my email client across wifi using ssh -X.

I found ubuntu a lot easier to set up widescreen displays than fedora or
SuSE, so that's what I use on this laptop.
