LCD Monitors: Integrated Speakers
One of the key advantages of the flat LCD monitors is their small footprint. These thin displays take up much less space than their big CRT cousins do. If you're really into saving space on your desk, though, you might consider going all the way and purchasing an LCD monitor that features integrated stereo speakers (that hang on both sides of the LCD panel). Many manufacturers offer such speakers, but you might have to pay a little extra over an LCD monitor without speakers.
Also, don't take anyone's word on whether or not the speakers sound good. Head to a store that sells the make and model you want and take a test drive. You might want to save space but you don't want to pay for poor quality speakers.
