It is just a matter of time before he regrets that decision.
What do you mean it can't handle 1080P?

1680x1050 can't handle 1920x1080 because it doesn't have 1920x1080 pixels.

Duh

But that isn't important. The resolutions are so close to each other anyway

The 1080p material will be scaled and less detailed than on a 1080p monitor.

Well if you guys are wondering I just bought 2 more 1680x1050 for a few reasons:

- I'd rather have surround that the extra res that 1080p offers
- I don't even own a single blue ray so the black bars that can appear won't matter
- Many people say the difference between 1050 and 1080 on a 22" isn't noticable
- I got two 22" monitors off a member here for $200 shipped.
