This thing has annoyed me a lot of times, but never have I said to myself…
“This wouldn’t be happening with a CRT”
It is that you can’t slide a keyboard underneath. The weight distribution of a flatscreen means its 'stand has to extend beyond the bottom of the screen toward you. A CRT has more weight behind the screen than a flatscreen so the stand can be placed further back, under that weight.
I like my keyboard far away (so I can rest my entire forearm on the desk) and my monitor closer (I have good short-range vision) I can’t have both with a CRT without doing something drastic like aquire a shelf for it… Hey… That’s an idea [abandons thread and goes to Amazon but not before finishing this action edit and pressing the submit button]
