Ah, OK. In my case I just removed everything plastic until I had a
bare LCD unit and framed it from there.

Most only go up to 1024x768 (think airport monitor / add board in
supermarket) from what I can see. They are typically around $160 or so
for a cheapie.

For now Picasa for Linux. If only because it does a nice job of
displaying JPEG comments along with the images. I try to write
comments for all our images.
