details on the widescreen/tv combo please. i've been looking for something similar.
The exact model I am using is the Samsung SyncMaster 940MW 19" LCD Monitor. I have a monitor arm attached to the back of the desk so it gives the space underneath the monitor back.
I use PIP with this monitor as I work. The sad thing about that is that it only works for TV/AV/S-Video jacks. And while thats not all that bad the AV and S-Video jacks are on the side of the monitor. You can see the cables sticking out in my picture on the left side of the monitor. Not really a big deal for me, just a quirk. It does have component video in the back but that does not work for the pip function sadly.
I run the monitor at the standard resolution for the 15" MBP and its not the most beautiful screen in the world but it gets the job done. I like the widescreen layout and switching back and forth from a 16x9 -> 4x3 was annoying.
The mount I have for the monitor is the Ergotron LCD Arm. Again not the best in the world but it gets the job done.
