How big should be your Monitor?

If you frequent the Apple Store you've probably seen those iMacs with large monitors. I think the largest one I've seen is a 24 inch monitor. I've thought of replacing my 19 inch monitor with a larger one but I'll probably buy an LCD TV with a PC in so that I don't have to buy a separate TV card.

I have my eyes set on a 26 inch screen but I don't know how good that would be for my eyes. I have tried using our 32 inch LCD TV as a monitor and believe me, when I placed it on our desk and being so close to it, I could feel my eyes getting more blurry.

So the question is how big can your monitor get? Well, the 32 inch is a definite no-no when you're going to do a lot of typing on your desktop but it might do if you have like, a bluetooth keyboard and mouse and you're going to do your typing a foot away from the TV. So I guess the safest bet would be 24 inches since Apple already has them on their iMacs.

I think you know a large screen right in front of your face is really gonna be harmful to your eyes.. Apple gives us 24 inch screen's but that is meant for setups where your screen is a lil bit far from you, like about a meter away.. In my case my screen is a little more than a feet away from my face, so a 24 inch is definitely a no no for me..

I suggest you find a screen size thats suites the distance from you and your monitor.. Hope that helps..
