Thanks for the monitor feedback!
I will take it under advisement.
Best advice: by the largest, highest-resolution monitor you can afford--and it won't hurt to extend the warranty on it out a couple more years, if possible (usually doesn't cost too much at time of purchase.)
If you are looking at tiny screens from 6" away the pixel density might be important to you, but generally a larger screen which allows you to comfortably observe it from 2'-3' away at minimum, is far more preferable, visible, and easy on the eyes. I do agree that 1920x1080 should be the minimum native res--with 1920x1200 being the sweet middle of the road--and ~2500x1600 being the absolute maximum. The first two resolutions are definitely the better buys--the top resolution only if you have money to burn and also plan to drop a wad for gpus powerful enough to drive all those pixels...;)
It is well known that I don't make mistakes--so, if you should happen across an error in something I have written, you can be confident in the fact that *I* did not write it.
