    Sometimes I wonder why these companies appear in computer shows:
    1. insurance company
    2. visa card company
    3. share trading company

    IIRC, the higher the colour depth, the response time also lengthens.
    2^18 = 262,144 colors aka 262k (new cell phone screen use this)

    2^24 = 16,777,216 colors aka 16.8 millions

    Am I missing something here?

    1. insurance company
    Incase should one die or hospitalise after playing too much computer

    2. visa card company
    You need visa to pay for computer but too bad most merchant will charge you extra 2%

    3. share trading company
    Online trading

    Who knows in future we might see...Hawker stall, fashion boutic, Property agent, funiture, lighting, water and electician etc etc

    Correct. The 18 bit LCDs uses dithering to achieve the 16.2m colours. That's why most people here in CS prefers the 24 bits as it's truer colours.

    6 bits is not alot but when you do the maths, it kinda shows eh?

    Well, you can always go there and shop for your new insurance policy, your new visa card, your new stock market broker, etc.

    Maybe I'll pick another 1GB of DDR if the price is good, and I'll get either a DVD burner or a 250GB HDD. But think the prices at PC show is about as good as walking into SLS youself and getting it any other day, but I could be wrong

    espn: you don't have spare gaffer tape left meh? That would work for your LCD
