I know this much, they're big. I mean like really big. Seriously I had a
chance recently to snag one for $5, but had to pass on it because at the
time I didn't have anywhere to put it. You had best have something very
sturdy to put the monitor on. Might be pretty cool to play with. They
were something of a big thing in some circles years ago.

BTW when I say big, I mean realitively. The CPU wasn't that bad, just the
monitor :^) I've only room for one monitor that size at this time, and I'm
using it.
