Screen still works, I like its size (space on the desk), vertical workspace is more important than horizonal workspace to me. Plus I save money on the monitor (no new one = no money spend on a new one) and graphics card (need less computational power). Plus, because of the short viewing distance I would not go bigger than about 19 inch anyway and the highest resolution available for that size is 1440x900 which is no "upgrade". Plus, I am not graduated (university) yet and I don't have a job (no student's side job, let alone a "real" one).
Still the same when I use an older computer. I got a spare 17 inches here and 1024X768 is what I use for them. Most of older integrated graphics start to have trouble using Youtube even at 1280X1024. People who get these old computers from me don't even have money to buy better videocard anyway.
