If the answer's no, QED. If the answer's yes, you've answered your own 


The 12"  monitors which came with the LC series are only 512 x 384 
resolution. If you expect to sell your product to schools (as I do) I can 
tell you from experience that designing to allow for at least the LC 12" 
screen and ideally the SE 9" screen will help your sales. You wouldn't 
believe how many of them are still pulling duty in cash strapped schools. 
Of course, in many school districts (mine included), computers purchased in 
the last couple of years are PeeCee's because quote: (circa 1997) "Apple is 
going under..."
Then I hear less computer knowledgable teachers say "I love the PC's, Apples 
just can't do as many things." Yea, if you're comparing 68000's to Pentium 
III's.  Arrrggghhh!
