    I know things are ALWAYS changing for the computer itself, but I
    figure television /CRT technology is pretty much matured.

    You can get a 19" CRT for $200 today that has a completely flat tube.
    I remember high end 17" CRT PC monitors were over $1,000 in 1995.
    What was so different back then?

    The advent of flat panel displays is putting price pressure on the CRT's.

    Far more integration than before; digital control/generation
    of waveforms (such as the geometry, focus, and convergence
    correction; a LOT more use of the plastic case parts as
    structural supports as opposed to a metal frame to which the
    case AND PC assemblies were attached; much less labor
    (esp. through automated adjustment processes), and what
    there is is in lower-cost regions (i.e., assembly in mainland
    China or Malaysia rather than Japan or Korea); and lower-cost
    components (and, thanks again to the increased integration,
    fewer of them).

    If you can find monitors from, say, 1980 and 1990, and open
    them up alongside a current product, you'll see the differences
    very clearly. However, don't expect the trend to continue - there's
    very, very little in the way of further development of CRT
    monitor design or production processes going on any more.
