I know a lot of the long time Mac heads out there pine for the good old days with a Radius portrait display that could rotate b/w landscape for design and portrait for document work. Well there's now a very cool way you can turn any display into a portrait (if you've got the bucks).

"Rob-art" Morgan over at Barefeats was testing out the ATI Radeon 9800 Pro (I said you'd need bucks) and found that it includes "hardware accelerated display rotation and scaling". Combine this with Marathon Computer's Pixarm and you can rotate even your Cinema Display to your heart's content.

Yes I know there have been other "solutions" out there over the years but this one seems pretty cool.

That sounds cool too.
I think that a big 23" Cinema Display is cooler.
Not to mention, more convenient.
If Apple would only drop the price on those.....

The retail prices of the 23" has come down a little bit since the last time I checked them out.. they are still 3 grand plus, but I have to say they are a wicked screen..

Why not try one of the Samsung widescreen LCDs?

Cheers,

A friend of mine has a 19" Samsung flat panel that is really nice and it does rotate 90° from portrait to landscape. Alas, the software that switches the video mode doesn't work on the Mac... :(
