Chinky little PC monitor? Its a ViewSonic... better quality then most apple displays...

The G5 isnt a real G5, its this: http://www.mlode.com/~stuka/g45/

And its runing two monitors actually, a 19" and a 17". I dont have Any ADC ports so I cant use the apple display. (although if its a 17" LCD I will gladly take it for 75+shiping)

I like it. :-)
