This question may be a little off the wall, and maybe not for tis group, but I could not find a better one! :)
I am currently doing most of my research on a 17" laptop. Soon, I plan to have a dedicated workspace with a desktop system.
My question - what type of monitor is the best for looking at copies of microfilm? I have a fair amount of records that came from microfilm that I have in PDF, TIFF and JPEG formats. Is a particular type of monitor better than others for reading the old handwriting on these images?
I plan to buy as large a monitor as I can and may be able to update the video card, as well. Any suggestions?
