Bargain of the Week

Great 24" Dell Monitor - $259.99

Until July 17, Newegg has a great 24" Dell monitor (U2412M) for only $259.99 when you enter coupon code: EMCXNWW49 at checkout. Shipping is free. The screen is sharp and clear, and the monitor comes with a three year warranty. While this monitor is $100 more than other 23-24 inch ones, there is a big difference. Its resolution is 1920 x 1200, instead of 1920 x 1000. That means there is about an extra inch of vertical space on the screen. (Most monitors have gotten very wide, but not very high. This one improves on that, at a least a little.) MrConsumer owns this monitor and paid MORE!
