In our most recent poll, we asked our readers how many monitors they you use with their main computer. We have had almost 2,000 people vote on the poll and the numbers are in for us to go over and examine.
Among TweakTown readers and without too many surprises here, 57% use one monitor with their main computer setup. 32% use two monitors.
With the introduction of multi-screen gaming, we thought the following numbers would have been a little higher, but we can see that just 7% of our readers use three monitors and only 1% use four. We have some readers with certain monitor fetishes and 3% of them use five monitors or more!
For the actual numbers, go here.
In our latest poll, we want to know, What do you think of our new design refresh? Let us know! Please go here to vote!
I am a fan of home theater gear and gaming on a big screen. I would like to have a projector in the living room to get a really big picture, but the room isn't big enough. If you have a big room and want, a big picture Sanyo has introduced a new projector that might be perfect for you.
The projector is the PLV-Z4000 and it will ship in late May for $2495. For that much money, you get a projector with 3LCD tech supporting a 120Hz refresh rate. The contrast ratio is 65,000:1 for deep blacks.

Rumors have been circulating this week that claim the next generation iPad will sport an OLED screen. Those rumors are hard to believe considering the price of the screens today. LG Display announced today that it would be expanding its OLED making capacity.
Interestingly LG Display is a provider for screens to Apple. LG Display will be investing $225.7 million to triple its OLED capacity.
This dovetails nicely with the Apple rumors. Higher capacity should mean lower prices assuming yields are decent. LG Display also plans to have a 30-inch OLED screen by the middle of 2011.
Today we hooked up with the Taiwan PR people for Qualcomm in Taipei City and got a look an upcoming prototype device from Qualcomm MEMS Technologies, a subsidiary of Qualcomm, that uses its impressive direct-view MEMS display mirasol display technology for mobile devices.
Qualcomm says that the technology inspiration is learned from natures own butterfly wings. They say that, "the complex structure on butterfly winds can reflect light so that specific wavelengths interfere with each other to generate the purest and most vibrant color in the natural world." This is set to be the basic description of Qualcomm's mirasol display and the further you get into it and learn about it, the more interesting it becomes.
Luckily we had Nicole Scott on hand from Netbook News on hand to assist us as she attended a press briefing yesterday about the display that I was unable to attend. She gives us a close up look at the small prototype, which we were lucky enough to get our hands-on earlier today to see just how the technology works. Watch the video above!
I hear that Nicole is going to be writing up a technical brief on the technology next week, so stay tuned to Netbook News for that piece.

Tablet computers are going to be a big deal this year thanks to the iPad as other companies try and launch a similar device. We will also see a number of new notebooks and netbooks that support multi-touch screens this year.
Not all multi-touch screens are created equal though. Many of the screens only support input from two fingers accurately before things don't work well. A new screen being shown off by Cypress Semiconductor can accept input accurately from an unlimited number of fingers.
The screen the company is showing off is 14-inches in size, but the tech can scale from 7 to 17-inches for different product types. The screen is designed to work with Windows 7 and will find its way into netbooks, notebooks, PMPs and other devices.

Apple has been making all-in-one computers for a lot longer than most companies. It unveiled the iMac line years ago and they have been successful. The new line of iMac computers includes a 27-inch and a 21.5-inch version.
The 27-inch version of the iMac has been plagued with screen issues. The screens have been arriving at their destinations with cracks and many users report issues with screen flickering. Reports are surfacing from owners who have called AppleCare techs about the screen flicker issue that a new fix is coming.
The new fix is reportedly going to be offered in about three weeks. It will be the second fix to attempt to remedy the flicker issue. The three-week estimate on the fix goes along with the three week delay in shipping the 27-inch unit, but Apple claims the two are not related.
Pico projectors have been on the market for a while now and one of the universal issues is that they are not very bright. The lack of brightness means they work well in a dark room, but in a room with light, they are not very good.
HP is rumored to be working on a new line of notebooks and tablets set for launch this year that will sport built-in pico projectors. The projectors would reportedly be where the webcam is on the notebooks now.
I would think on the lid facing away from the user would be where the projector would need to go. I wonder if notebooks with these projectors would have a hump to hide all the gear, presumably they would. No other details are available.
