Get an 18.5-inch LCD monitor for $69.99 shipped

Don't have room on your desk for a mammoth monitor? Here's a smaller, but still plenty roomy, display for an unbeatable price.

A mere $70 buys you a very nice Dell 18.5-inch monitor.

Not everybody needs (or wants) a huge monitor. As a matter of fact, the awesome Acer Aspire 8950G-9839 desktop-replacement laptop I use on a daily basis has a "mere" 18.4-inch display, and I find it more than adequate.

From now until tomorrow, or while supplies last, Dell is offering its own Dell IN1920 18.5-inch LCD monitor for $69.99 shipped (plus sales tax in some states). The monitor is new, not refurbished.

As you might expect at that price point, the IN1920 has few frills. It's a VGA-only monitor with a 5ms response time and 1,366 x 768 maximum resolution. That's the equivalent of 720p video if you're thinking in movie- or TV-viewing terms.

If you're looking for a primary or secondary (or even tertiary) monitor for a small workspace, this should do nicely. And check out the user reviews: nearly 100 buyers rated the IN1920 4.8 stars out of 5 on average.

Although it's not listed anywhere on the product page, the monitor comes with a one-year warranty. What do you think: killer deal, or too small a screen for your needs?

Bonus deal: Today only, and while supplies last, Sellout.woot has the refurbished TiVo Premiere DVR for $49.99, plus $5 for shipping. That's incredibly cheap, but the downside is the $19.99/month subscription charge. At least you get a full one-year warranty, just like with new TiVos.

Bonus deal No. 2: This isn't very techie, but it's still too good to pass up: today's LivingSocial deal gives you a $20 Whole Foods voucher for just $10. (Nepotism alert: that's my referral link. If you'd rather not use it, just head to the LivingSocial home page.) Free groceries, people! Understandably, the site's pretty slammed right now, but keep trying.
