This sleek LCD may be a little pricey, but its sharp image quality and snazzy design make it a good choice for style-conscious business and home users.

Many of my coworkers in New York City tend to sum up flat-panel LCD monitors as "cool," a concise but shallow understatement. Flat panels are the envy of big-ass CRTs (and their owners) everywhere, a sexy combination of performance and space economy in...
