Well, with an LCD display and a thinner tower, one could situate the tower behind the display and fill about the same space or less than a regular CRT. Which will be fine on that day when LCD's are as inexpensive and as colour-accurate as CRT's.<br><br>Admittedly, a skinny LCD display would look kinda goofy on top of a pizza box desktop but it might not be so bad if the form facter were smaller. I can see a time when a "desktop" computer consists of a box not much larger than a portable connected to an LCD display and a separate keyboard. At that point, practically the only difference between a desktop computer and a portable will lie in the size of the keyboard and display.<br><br>John<br><br>
