    You bought two new notebooks?! And one was for me? Have I ever told you how handsome you are, Marest?

    Holy crap, I just went and googled them. They look awesome. I don't think I'd like the whole horizontal/vertical switching thing, but it seems like a cool feature from the pictures I've seen.

    i actually like the sharp corner look of the 2011 series of monitors, im a little disappointed in the rounded design of the new ones

    I agree with this.
    The U2212HM monitors are a bit rounded and feel "soft", while the U2711 is a lot more robust and "industrial". Either case, I'm pleased with the increased work area.

    As for the stands, I wholeheartedly agree. They went from solid steel, incredibly robust stands that won't move even a millimeter to somewhat average, flimsier solutions. I do like that I can flip the monitors sideways though.

    So, I have this idea I've been mulling over, not something I'll likely do, but I was wondering...

    What if they (someone) made an IRON case? O.o

    Yup, we could coat it in aluminium.

    Like aluminium cases.

    Made entirely out of aluminium.

    Why not a wood case while we're at it?

    Full copper case would be intriguing, especially after a few years worth of tarnish.
