How close can you you put a Monitor to a Computer? To another Monitor ?
Have small micro Computer--my GF's --and want to put the monotor (either a 15" that I have or a 17" Aperture grid) on a stand to save space. CAN it be done withOUT signifcant interference? Is anybody doing it? (yes, I've thought of cooling problems).
Also, have a monitor on kitchen pantry (!) ; want to Dual-Monitor the Computer. Can they (15" and 17") be placed 2"-3" apart ? Without noticeable interfernce. Both are about 5 years old and I'm not worried so much as to their life expectancy as to their picture quality.
A small , quiet external fan can be placed in vacinity to compensate for heat proximity.
Not my favored choice of placement. But living under space constraints in a small apt. These are "make-do" arrangements---provided they will work.
Before I start moving furniture etc. , any comments as to feasability. Will the darn thing(s) work ?

You will have to give it a try. I have a NEC MultiSync A700 that doesn't like to have another monitor very close.

For one of the projects I worked on during the summer, it involved a dual monitor setup, with the picture spread over two screens (2048x768). We had the two monitors, 21" Viewsonics, right next to each other. No problems with the pictures ... only a problem if one screen was off, because degaussing the monitor as it turns on makes the other monitor's picture curve for a couple seconds.

My Clear-View tech computer sits 3" from a 17" monitor with no problems whatsoever...

The probs you may get is when you turn one on the other may bend and stuff, but it should go back to normal in a sec. Plus most new moniters come with a deguasing thingy-ma-bob so that should fix any probs if something does happen.

I have 2 right next to each other with maybe 3 inches space between. that is where my router, and Cable modem reside. No performance issues at all.After one look at this planet any visitor from outer space would say "I want to see the manager."

The only issue I see is the external fan being too close. If anything, that will be the one to give interferance.
