Has anyone else tried a 17 inch CRT on top of an A1000?
I haven't done that but I have a 17" monitor and know what you mean about the weight. I think it would depend on what the base of your monitor looks like. If it spreads the weight over a large area and not just four pads it might be o.k.
As you remember the case top of the A1000 is held together by 5 posts. Those support the weight and are fairly far apart. The one in the center probably gets most of the load. Spreading the load with a board that covers the top of the A1000 would help.
I was nervous putting my 17" on an A3000. It was fine but it has a steel case.
