    Wow - is that a LCII with a 13" display?

      It's all right - you just fell through a timewarp. It's currently 1992.

        damn. I was just about to call and ask for a quote on their Custom "Built to Suit" Templates ;)

        It is?! Holy crap - I've got to place some buy orders!

      Hey good call.

      Either this woman was way ahead of her time because somehow she got her hands on a futuristic Magni-viewer (LCIIs came out in the early 90s didn't they?) *or* she should've invested in a new setup a long time ago instead of going blind and needing assistive devices because of an old Apple monitor.

    For less than $300, you can make your monitor look smaller and further away!

    Or am I reading it wrong?

    "The image from a 15-inch monitor viewed two feet away is equivalent to a 40-inch monitor three feet away."

    If it actuallyt works like that it would be interesting. Maybe for far sighted people? The trouble is, without user review or testimony, it is a hard $300 sale.

    Nice Apple all the same! :)

    It's still cheaper to use page zoom. :)

    ...or when this guy did, of course.

    If your eyesight is really that bad, you can get a good 19" monitor for less than $200 US, and run it at 640x480 or 800x600...

    File that puppy under "Products with no market"...

      There's a perfect market for this... if you have a Game Boy Advance.

      This reminds me of those "big-screen TV for only $30!!" web sites that basically involve plans to put a big-ass lens on your TV and use it as a poor man's projector.

    I agree. CVS does have some problems that I complain about all the time.

    Man the LC, LCII, LCIII and the Performa 475 were really beautiful on the inside. I think they were as close to perfect as I've ever seen. So clean.

    • owen says:

      I had an LC, and while it was pretty perfect on the inside, it didn't make me go "ooh" the way the inside of a Sparc IPX/LX/Classic does.
