* These numbers are calculated. you should look into the spec of your preferred monitor
**This is a Notebook LCD size
*** I found a lot of 21" wide-screen monitors but they varying between 21" - 21.4"


if i found more specs, i'll extend it with more tablets



If you want to calculate your sizes for your own, use the following formulas:

Width of a TFT with a ratio of 4:3
WIDTH = SCREEN DIAGONAL * 0.8

Height of a TFT with a ratio of 4:3
HEIGHT = SCREEN DIAGONAL * 0.6

Width of a TFT with a ratio of 16:10 (5:4)
WIDTH = SCREEN DIAGONAL * 0.848

Height of a TFT with a ratio of 16:10 (5:4)
HEIGHT = SCREEN DIAGONAL * 0.53

Width of a TFT with a ratio of 16:9
WIDTH = SCREEN DIAGONAL * 0.872

Height of a TFT with a ratio of 16:9
HEIGHT = SCREEN DIAGONAL * 0.49

In case you want to check the maximal TFT size for your current pen board, simply transform the formula: W = D * F <=> W / F = D. Make sure you use the correct ratio!

EDIT: Also check out this online tool that computes all that for you:  http://forum.bongofish.co.uk/index.php?topic=1984.0  (Simtiq Planner) Wink

No problem with the screen being smaller than the tablet.  If you think the screen is big enough to work on, and it fits on the tablet, then it's good.

Actually, "stickyfy" pulls up over 200 matches on Google, and "stickify" (the commonly accepted alternative spelling) brings up almost 5,000 matches.  Wink

Do you know where to get any smaller screens, like ten inches or less for display? Or can display size be altered to fit the area for around 9x8 displays?

maybe we could update  the list with the new intuos4

4x6       158 x 98 mm  you can rip a 7" netbook... =)
6 x 9     224 x 140 mm or 10" netbook
8 x 13   325 x 203 mm would nearly fit a macbook pro 15,4" (15,3 would be better) 16:10 screen
12 x 18 462 x 305 mm would  fit a 21" 16:10 but is like 1k$ + monitor


but ripping a shiny new one?
