No doubt... I recently switched from a Sun 17E10 to a $5 scratched-up
Dell LCD panel I bought at the Mansfield Hamfest, specifically because
the room gets to over +90F with the AC off (possible in Ohio, but not
pleasant ;-) when the computer and monitor are on.  I might switch
back to the CRT for the heating season, though.

Heh... on another desk, I have a Sun 20E20... it's on a 2"x12" shelf
that doesn't sag much.
