Unfortunately, I had to use .no prices, which are a bit steaper.

Here's an example from a price comparison engine in Norway. I've sorted by 2560x1440 and 2560x1600, and prices run from Low to High. Prices are in NOK:

A rule of thumb for costs in Norway compared to the US is to say 1USD = 10NOK, that way you'll have figured in taxes and charges. The currency itself is currently around 1USD = 5.92NOK.

But when that is said, I am very happy with my Dell U2711.

I hope not. There might not be TV formats at that pixel count in use, but a display with these pixel counts seem entirely feasible, as they are integers ;-)

Allthough it does indeed seem feasable, and dare I even say probable, I must unfortunately disappoint you; there is no such thingamabob, dookickey or thingamajig.

Is this the point where I turn pedantic and remind you there is no such resolution as 1920*1024? =)

And I guess "cheap" is a relative term. I see the cheapest UHD (4K) monitors now costs less than what I payed for my 27"@2560*1440. The monitor(s) are such an important interface between you and the machine, this is where you should invest. I usually spend about 7000 NOK for a new monitor (atm. about US$1175. This being a high cost country, and with high taxes, this would be the equivalent of about US$850-900 in the US).

A new 28"@4K costs about US$600 and up here. A new 27"@2560*1440 costs about US$500 and up.

A few (6-7) years after I chose my nick, all of a sudden another guy started using it around the web. All of a sudden we ended up in a sort of Cold War rush to secure our (my!) nick on various sites and services. I'm thinking I've won, since his activity has dwindled.

That username gets about 14000 hits on Google, and the majority of them are related to me.

I've fought so hard for it, I get a bit annoyed when people abbreviate it =)

It's basically the difference of picking up the brick from the street or buying it from Wal-Mart before you throw it through the window. Some likes the convienience of Wal-Mart, others understand that any odd brick will do the trick.

Written from a not-yet-converted stock Galaxy S3. Was actually hoping to install CM this weekend through Play Store. Now I have to use the slightly less convenient option.
