Curved TVs may be enjoying a lukewarm reception, but apparently we love curved monitors in Australia. In a couple of years, Samsung says sales data and market research shows one in three dollars will be spent on curved screens for our PCs and Macs, and there's a very good reason why. When you're sitting close to a monitor, the difference in your eyes' focal distance on a flat diplay versus a curved one is significant. Samsung has nine monitors launching into its Australian line-up this year, and five are curved.
