    Handy, though - we got a classroom full of second-hand 15" screens for <= £30 each.

    I'd say go for 19's now. Think of the future - you want your monitors to last 5 years ideally - in 5 years time you might need to run 1280x960 or some such resoloution whearas now 1024x768 is probably fine.

    Saying that - the budget is so bad here at the moment I would completley ignore my own advice and get as many 17's as i can for the money. Still running 800x600 on pupil PC's as have such a variety of monitors incluing old 15 and 17 CRTs

    1280x1024 should run well on a decent quality 17" - all ours run at that resolution. It's only the 15" ones that run at 1024x768. We use these for new admin machines.

    The price difference is often only a matter of a few quid.

    In fact, I bought a 15" last week which actually cost more than a 17", and about the same as a cheapy 19"!

    True - but a few quid x 100 is a few hundred quid and a few hundred quid = a few more monitors

    Our users found that too small. Strange really, as they prefer 1024x768 to 800x600 on the 15", but don't like 1280 on a 17".

    If you have space go for the 19'' Hard Glass

    But the 17'' are quite suitable for normal Class room use
