I think these would be great for programming and I'd very much like to have a pair.
That's what they said about pyjamas!

Until you realise that you can simply program naked and do less laundry...

Since it's Eizo, picture in your mind the absolute uppermost-end of what you would consider to be a reasonable price for this monitor. Take that figure and then add $200. Finally, take the sum of that calculation and add 25%. That's how much they'll cost. :)

^Since they're pushing it for CAD and similar "pro" use cases I'm guessing it will tip the scales at well over a grand when it finally hits the streets. There's enough 'hip factor' here that they'll probably jack prices up for the early adopters and "gottahavit" crowd for the first three to six months too.

You might not want to do that on a leather, vinyl, metal, or finished wood chair. Some surfaces should not have prolonged contact with skin, especially in summer. Think diner booth + shorts + peeling your upper thighs off when it's time to leave and you get the picture.

Cool.  8)
Mine is sort of square; it's a super-old Compaq P900 CRT. :)

I hung onto my VX900 as long as I could.  Way too damn heavy.  But I could read web pages without hitting control plus.  :)

Who in their right mind would sit for hours programming in a "metal, or finished wood chair"?? Christ forget the skin...you bones would be stuck to the damn thing by then..

+1 for programming naked! It keeps unwanted visitors/interruptions to a bare minimum.. ;)

Not to mention game programmers would gain direct access to the joystick.  ;)

Available now for 1400$ a piece. I doubt I can convince my employer that I need two of those. Well, for that price it's hard to convince myself that I need two of those.
