CRT vs. LCD displays

I had a friend tell me that flat-screen computer monitors (CRT) were better and had a sharper display than the new crop of LCD displays. I disagreed with him. After reading an article at Wired News, I’d have to say that I still disagree with him.

Perhaps what’s most surprising about the trend is that it’s taken so long to arrive. CRT monitors are bulky, heavy and rely on vacuum tube technology invented in the 19th century. In contrast, LCD’s are light, sleek, energy-efficient and have a sharp picture.
With Apple bundling a 15-inch LCD display in their low-end machines (iMac), I think you’ll see the Dell, HP and others following suit in the next year.
