Pismo 400 trade for LCD monitor

I have a workhorse Pismo G3 400MHz I no longer need. I do need an LCD monitor with DVI and VGA if possible.

Let me know what you've got.

Full specs on Pismo..

G3 400MHz - 768MB/30GB/DVD/Airport Card - Battery lasts at least 1 hour likely more. I'll have to test it.

Hi DG:
What type of monitor are you seeking? I have an Apple Cinema Display crt that is honestly, the greatest monitor I've yet seen. We also had a 17" flatscreen hooked in but the resolution etc., just wasn't the same. Let me know because my kid no longer uses it. He's on the laptop instead. Ciaochiao

Not interested in CRT's but let me know which LCD it is. I did test the battery and it ran a little over 2 hours.

I have a 17" HP L1740. Is that the size you're interested in? Screen is perfect (no scratches, pressure marks, uneven lighting, ect.) but the only visual defect is there are a couple scratches on the bezel in one particular spot which I have no idea where that came from. They're not deep but noticeable in light.

It has DVI, VGA and a USB hub. Excellent, excellent picture quality, I noticed when running Windows compared to a smaller 15" LCD the area around the start menu had a lot more depth to it and was also greatly impressed with the quality of Mac OS X on it. No dark spots/ect.

It also rotates into portrait mode, technically swivels (some rotating base under the stand, factory installed, not addon), tilts and moves up and down.

Yeah, Ill be able to come anytime this week, really, very possibly even tomorrow.

Ill post a picture of the monitor today, is there any additional information you need on it? Do you need a VGA cable? I was planning to buy a DVI cable for it but got an iMac and didn't need the cable.

Thanks!

I have a VGA cable but I do need a DVI cable.

I'm at work tomorrow from 8:30 - 4:30. Church and Esplanade. If you are coming down after hours, I live just south of Sherway gardens.

PM me and let me know where you want to meet up.
