For most people, a display is something that came with the last computer they bought or the one before that. Few people ever think about upgrading their displays, and that's unfortunate. Even the newest, fastest system is hampered by an old, small, dim, fuzzy display. Fortunately, upgrading your display is easy usually it's a simple matter of buying it and plugging it in and nowadays it's cheaper than ever. Unless your current display is top-notch, consider upgrading it. Your eyes will thank you.
