There was a 19"er that did it, but typically you find this resolution at 20.1" and higher. No, that's not big. My 21" LCD is only 2" wider than my 17" CRT and 9" less deep. If comparing to another LCD surely the A9 being so small means you now have extra desk space for a larger monitor?
"As I understand it the A9 produces a resolution beyond what is generally used and well within the specs of the chips. Not an issue."
I've heard no claim that it produces beyond 1600x1200, and if you're saying that 1280x1024 (next lower common resolution) is 'beyond what is generally used' you're mixing things up. If 1280x1024 or lower is in common use it is because people are using ancient computers not capable of higher. They aren't willing to pay for a viewfinder or upgrade to an Iyonix, but a cheaper computer finally able to display modern resolutions (that everyone outside the RISC OS community enjoys) would be ideal. This rather breaks down if the new cheap computer doesn't actually do what its designers say it does in an acceptable way (1600x1200 on a CRT over 60Hz), which is what we were confused about.
Why not be helpful and encourage Stuart Tyrrell to reveal the refresh rate at 1600x1200 and then we can all be happy and just look forward to the machine's release.

Adventures with a Lego-cased A7K web server Having previously built desktop and laptop cases of out Lego bricks, model building Peter Howkins has turned his attentions towards crafting a slim box to slid his A7000 into a rack, alongside other rackmount servers. Having pieced together the housing, Peter puts a legacy RISC OS machine through its paces as an internet-facing server. 11 comments, latest by jess on 3/12/08 2:07PM. Published: 21 Nov 2008
