Out of the Blue

Yeah it's more than a little odd being alone here, or alone with the doggies.... And the Gunnar-man is a little thrown by it as well, as he's utterly devoted to MrsBlue. So basically everyone is a little out of sorts with her out of town. Except Hudson the wonder dog, who is fine as long as I'm here (and there are fresh batteries in the smoke detector).

JIMNMS, you might be able to get a monitor from Costco, and they have a very liberal return policy.

I don't have a Costco near me. All we have in town in Walmart and Office Max. There are three Best Buy's within an hour drive of me, but I already checked their website and didn't see anything that interested me.

I was wrong about Walmart, I was going by the website. When I go to monitors and click the in my store tab, it only shows the 19", but I decided to check anyway and they have a 23" Acer.

I completely forgot about Office Max even though they're next door to Walmart. I just looked at the Office Max website and it shows three monitors available at my local store, but there's no telling if it's accurate. They have a 23" Samsung, 24" AOC, a 23" and 25" HP. The only one of those available locally that has a VESA mount is the AOC. I can't find many reviews on it, but the few I found don't look too great. I need the VESA mount because I use a monitor arm mounted off to the side of my desk which lets the monitor "float" allowing me to use the space under it. I may go to Office Max and check out the HP tomorrow anyway, but if I want to get that ASUS by Friday I need to order it tonight.
