    I got my old PC back from the house in the city where I studied and I bought a new screen for it,an LG Flatron.It's pretty cool if you think that the first time I had a PC in this house,in my room was 10 years ago and I kind of moved to the new house when I started studying around 2003.This of course is not the oooold stupid PC I had in 2001...lol.This is the beautiful PC I bought in 2005 and upgraded 3-4 years ago with 4 GB Ram and GEFORCE 9500 and now with a new screen.I need speakers though because...having a PC and no sound sucks.

    Anyway,here's a picture:

    So it's an old tower, good insides and a nice screen.
    Reminds me of our computer screens at school. Is it 1920 * 1080?

    We have mac minis (not the newest) and the 1920*1080 screens, all supplied by the government which doesn't exist.

    @Foinikas: That's the screen size in pixels, as well as the resolution. You could have a screen that size, but use a 800*600 resolution, but then everything would be really big, with all the squares visible, ad it would be horrible; no smooth edges.

    Is a mastodon really an animal? or just an adjective (I can never remember)

    *prepares for lecture*
