My screen can beat up your screen
The CineMassive MasterPlex 21T (<–double intercaps = double the power) offers flat-screen madness: a 21" LCD center with five 17" arrayed around the sides. That works out to a cool 8,473,600 pixels for $3,299. Is it just me, or does it seem like the 20" Apple Cinema Display was just introduced* for $3,999? [Via John Agger]
I have a soft spot for this stuff, maybe, as I haul around my second 17" Mac portable. (I’m much happier now that I have a bag that doesn’t feel like it’s cutting my shoulder with piano wire.) Of course, it’s always theoretically possible to carry around an even bigger screen… [Via]
Marginally related: I enjoyed CNET’s story "You call that high-def?," listing some of the more tenuous (okay, entirely unwarranted) ways the "HD" moniker is being slapped onto various endeavors. And with that, I’m off to pet my GatoHD’s high-def coat.
* 1999–for real? I am getting old.
