Well, alas I agree that monitors can be a right pain to store, being
large, heavy, and often not easy to stack things on top of.
I think I would keep the monitor if it fitted into one of the following
1) It is the origianl monitor for a particular classic computer (so I
would keep the special monitors used on PERQs, and the HP-badged NEC
mono monitros used with the HP86B, etc)
2) It does something that modern monitors don't (supports a particular
scan rate, for example)
3) It has something interesting about the design.
