New Laptop screen  0   
Just wondering what everyone is working with.

I just bought a 22 inch screen yesterday.
Been playing on a 15.6 inch laptop for ages, and it never felt good or comfortable.
Funny thing, this screen is from Medion, and WAY larger than other 22 inch monitors.
That`s why I bought it. Looks like a 25 inch, and way larger than the other screens in shops at 22. HUGE!
Will measure and report back.

But what I noticed already, playing multible tables is a blast!
I could never play more than 2 tables decently, they were already very small, and had to overlap, never saw what was going on peripherally on the others, so I screwed up when I tried it, every time.

NOW......wow! No prob multi!
Love it!

This is going to make a difference, NO DOUBT at all!
You can just move tables around, play a serious tourney, and some small Sng`s on the side, I can`t believe what a difference this makes.

Just wondering what you guys are using and your thoughts.
Let me know.

A new world just opened up to me! Shock

Need I say it?..... bought with Poker money...lol Big Smile

Oh yeh - a new screen is a great & affordable way of increasing your computing (poker playing) pleasure.

The only other thing I can recommend here - that is even more of a whole new world to the virgins - is DUAL SCREEN

SERIOUS - I promise you do this you'll never look back. Just imagine - an MTT from one site on one screen 6 tables of fullring cash on another site on the other..

Or Bankrollmob forum on one - poker on the other..

Seriously - I couldn't imagine having only one screen. DUAL Screen is a a LOT more than the sum of it's parts.

It's beyond words. DO IT.

edit: one more dual screen benefit:media - early stages of an MTT on one screen (fold fold boring) American Dad on the other.. Or if you dont like to watch video and play poker - then you're mp3 player on the other screen - so you can navigate play list etc without having to minimize poker..

I have the same problem with my 15.6 inch laptop. I can't play multitable. When I sat to my old desktop(which has a larger screen) before a month to play I saw great difference in multitable but I don't like to use it because is very old and slow. IslandJack can you tell me which laptop you buy or other members to recommend a good laptop with large screen?

HAHA!! Man, all the great poker minds of the universe (I mean you and me of course Tongue ) think in a similar way!! Just yesterday I bought a really slick new Toshiba laptop that had caught my eye for a long time, which has a 15.6'' screen...
I was playing poker till now on my netbook which has only a 10.1'' screen and although I never had problems (I rarely multitable), I always thought that poker tables will show better on a larger and crystal clear monitor... So now I'm playing on a 15.6 inch top notch one, and it seems way too cool (although I guess it's old school for many of you)... ok, maybe in a couple of months I get used to it and stop being impressed, but for the moment it rocks!...
So what's next? 3D monitors with glasses? Hmm, not bad if you sit on a table with Lacey Jones avatars and be able to concentrate on the game... Smile

Well I'm ok with my 10' netbook . Playing multiple tables makes it harder, but since I don't ussually do it I'm ok with her (my net). I will change it for a 14' notebook soon.

I got a big ass screen a while back, best investment ever, but do like the idea of duel screen, now if i run 4 tables iv extra creen to either open anouther 2 or fetch stats etc.
I have my old screen and could set it up as a 2nd but its bulky so might get a 2nd slim oneafter x-mas.

in moment i got only two 17´s monitors but next week i buy a 24-26 monitor.And i think about it to buy a secound grafic card then i can use 4 monitors.It´s not only for poker i´m beginning to produce music visuals(not commerical only privat partys) and thats sucks on a 17 screen.When i buy a secound card that must look nice to see 3-4 tables in fullscreen.

I had an 'accident' with one of my LCD's and as such I have an LCD + CRT (big bulky) and I tell you - it's still worth it.. Atho two nice slim LCDs is/was better.

Also - dual - not duel Big Smile

wow you lot can multitable now , just a faster way of losing money Big Smile


You got it! Blink
Now I can Multi-table my Bankroll right down to nothing in no time at all...and I won`t even be sure how it happened with all these hands flashing around my screen.

Luckily, I also got a new PC the next day, which has been crashing regularly every 15 min., so I haven`t been able to play or even visit here until now. Big Smile

I jus hooked up my laptop again until I can make it to the shop.... Sad
