    It's tough to find a laptop with a CRT....so I'll go with LCD.

      I used a CRT up until December at home and May at work. I've got a 24" LCD now and am very happy with the space savings and extra width. Now I just need a 30".

        I still prefer good high end CRT's. The image quality is always superior. What really keeps me away from LCD's is that they look like crap if run at non-native resolutions.

          No doubt

          CRT = TRUE color

          LCD - NOT true colors

          Then again, there is no laptops with CRT'S'

                      No, I have a three year old Thinkpad connected to Samsung 2433BW. It is a pretty decent monitor for $300; and has a higher resolution (1920x1200) than the CRT it replaced (21", 1600x1200). The width has some useful applications; one that I'm particularly interested in right now is viewing Waveforms from Logic simulations.

                          Yes the 50" plasma is great for watching a picture, but the projection unit is better for DVD movies.

                              I wouldn't say it's all that strange... now that Pioneer is out of the plasma panel business, Panasonic is now the best manufacturer for plasmas. While Pioneer still had their Kuro Elites in production, Panasonic was almost as good, and came at a much cheaper price.

                              As for keeping around old CRTs, yeah they had better color reproduction, and better frequency response time for on-screen motion, but they consumed tons of power. With the new LED backlit LCDs, they use a fraction of the power that CRTs did. My pair of current Dell 24" flat panels use about 50-60 watts total when in use.
