Hey guys,

At work we recently got (another) Elo touchscreen, this one smaller than the other. The other must be a 15", so this maybe a 13"? I'm not sure what sizes they go down in.

I'm looking for a similar (or smaller) VGA 4:3 monitor. (I know it's not 4:3 with computing, but I'm sure you get what I mean) A 16:9/10 one won't fit. Not a touchscreen, just a normal monitor. Ideally significantly less than the $1000 touch one ;)

Cheers

Have a look at pricespy. You can filter by max resolution (which correlates with aspect ratio)

This is a 1024x768 - http://pricespy.co.nz/product.php?p=228143

Chart here correlating aspect ratio to resolution:

I know, these days its all about the size ;) 

Thanks for the offer, but got about 10 17" replacements on hand already. I know you can get small ones overseas, just was hoping for something local.... :/

Your local council probably has somewhere they suggest to send electronic waste.
That location should have heaps of old 15" 4:3 LCD screens
Or trademe - though you may have to buy a 10 year old dell desktop package just for the screen it comes with.

don't think LCD monitors were produced in 13", 15" was the smallest desktop form factor I can remember..

Trademe has this which were great little monitors in their day, I still use one in my server cabinet.

Next model down is a 12". How are you going to plug in another monitor?
