This is probably a really stupid question, but...

I need a really small monitor to go with my 7500, and I've seen 9" mono VGA monitors on eBay for $7.50. Will these work with the 7500? They should, right??
Is it time to go home yet?

I'm afraid I don't know the answer, but why do you need it??

I'm turning the 7500 into an MP3 jukebox, so the monitor's going to be on a bookshelf. Ideally, I'd like a nice LCD display, but they're more than I'm willing to pay...

I have a mono 9" monitor now w/ vga that worked on a G4 in 9. My brother found it lying around at his office and, as a joke, replaced a co-worker's 21" with this. The resolution was fixed at something like 320X200, but it worked.

He gave it to me to use with an intel/bsd server that I am procrastinating on putting together.

Your only problem might be finding the proper Mac Vid -&gt; VGA converter that can handle the low res.

the other week at a computer fair I saw some LCDs out of some kind of industrial system, they were in not entirely pleasant metal cases, but they could have been stripped out and put in a picture frame, or something... anyway, they were going for sub 100.

This doesn't help you at all of course
