pros and cons of getting wide screen monitor ..?

thinking of upgrading from my 15 inch

Wide screen monitors are nice, but you while you still have the same amount of screen surface. You lose height to gain the width.

Pro:
Great for watching widescreen movies
Good for games that support widewcreen (see more to the sides)
Great for computer desks that have shelves overhead that would limit height of monitors

Con:
Since most windows are vertical, you’ll be scrolling more then normal.
Need more space width-wise on your desk

A good way to check what size of monitor you want (or need), is to measure the height of the screen area, and determine if you want wide screen or not.

I got my 19 LCD (non-widescreen) for $75 less then a 19 Wide, and prefer having a more square screen (great for dual monitors).
