desktop publishing friends still wax nostalgic about the old
Radius Pivot CRT display hooked up to their Mac IIsi that could
rotate from landscape to portrait mode. It allowed them to see
the whole page at once which kept them from scrolling constantly
(those were the days before mice with scroll wheels). Now that
LCD monitors are the standard display type, they are getting
the rotational treatment as well.
L750DP and 19"
L950DP LCDs rotate 90-degrees and include Pivot Pro software
to rotate your Windows desktop. No software is included for Macs
but we tested the 17" model with a Mac mini and the rotate
options were built into the Display Preferences. Both models sport
a stylish white and silver frame and include VGA and DVI-D connectors.
Though the cables just hang off the back of the display without
any cable management included. Other features include built-in
speakers, vertical tilt, and a full range of adjustment options. All
this and it only costs a few bucks more than an LCD that is stuck
in landscape mode. Suitable for the home, office, or anyone who
wants to make long pages easier to look at.
