when I program I like to see as much code as possible in my editor. Latest high res displays are great to get a lot of lines in, but wouldn't it be even better if I could run a 1920x1080 dispay in portrait mode?

Anybody know if full HD, portrait-orientable displays exist out there? Looking for 20-22 inch.

I'm using 2 of thoses EV2303W ! They aren't cheap, but you won't regret to invest into a high end display ! You can put them in portrait mode !

Dell do these kinds of monitors too. Here is an example after a quick search. It's not full HD but I'm sure with some longer searching you will find one that is.
