was so huge when I purchased it (moving from a 20" iMac) and now it feels small. I am even running a 23" Cinema next to it.

Does your computer screen or TV ever get big enough to satisfy you?

you can always go bigger, i'd really like to upgrade my 24" monitor to a 30"
which would be incredibly large since i only sit a few feet from it.

When I bought my 32" HDTV, I thought "That will be big enough. I've been using 20" or years now"... now I wish I had something much bigger.

The 30" Cinema price point isn't quite in my budget for a second monitor. They want too much for it and I am not going to settle for some Dell or Gateway.

Same here. I had a 13" GE Tube for years. I then picked up a 44" Zenith LCD Projection (Before they labeled them LG) and now I am ready for a 65" Sharp I get for a decent accom price. I just don't want to get it and feel like it sucks when the new Mitsubishi laser rolls out

So I should get a 24" Imac over the 20"? I'm holding out for the speculated hardware upgrades, then pick one up off the refurb store.

I like the 24" over the 20" for sure. But... do you need the space? I am constantly having 5 windows + opened at the same time. The computer is for work. If you are using it for just browsing... Get a 20"

it'll be my home computer. So general browsing, lightroom editing, some photoshop work, itunes etc. I just love how the 24" looks.

I started using a 32" LCD HDTV as my monitor today :o

I think I might take it back and get something that's the same size but at a native 1920x1080 as opposed to this 720p nonsense :o
