    I know good prices of apple COMPUTERS, monitors... not so much.

    I've been offered a 17" CRT Studio Display for anywhere from $25-$50... would this be a good investment?

    I'm Currently Using a Dell LCD monitor which I... "found" on the street...It works, but that's about all it does... Not the best by any means, so I was wondering if this offer was a good one.

    IMO: If Your Computer Does What you Need it to do, You don't need a new one.
    I Shudder at the thought of an Intel-Based Mac.
    My Posts are often Tediously long and have little actual relevance to the topic at hand. I'm trying to fix that...

    Sorry to tell you no it would not. CRT monitors are from the last century and well and truly past their use by date alas.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Also consider that some 17" CRT displays are heavier and bulkier than an Apple Cinema display. Take it only if he gives it to you for free.
