Steve Drury Yes I often used to have a straw of grass when off to mill the cows in distant young days past ~ It took a lot of time to catch this dude :~))) Thanks for the like and enjoy what is left of the weekend Steve ~ nick

Sarah O, Yes you have heard right Sarah it is 23 inches across the diagonal and is one of those computers where the computer bits are all in with the screen too, so it takes up little room on the desk. ~ Thanks a lot for your kind compliments Sarah ~ Best wishes ~ nick

Ah HA..that's great.. Nick that 23 inch screen!!..you're moving up in the world for sure:)) I just measured mine to be sure and it is 21 inches and we love it!! (both my sons want mine) and it, too, is thin and takes up a small bit of room on the top of the desk. I, however, have elevated mine so that sitting in the chair and looking onto the screen is at a more comfortable eye-level, and I think I may adjust that even more, as when sitting here at times, I get a bit of neck pain, and this could be the culprit!! Is your at eye level or do you look down a bit at your hands and to the screen? Congrats on the super duper screen, makes me jealous:)))

Goodnight now....with a hug and best wishes ~~Sarah~~

Sarah O ~ It stands on my desk Sarah and is at head height more of less. You look up at the top of screen and slightly down to the bottom. You are very wise to attempt to get your screen at the correct height too. Night night ~ sleep well ~ nick
