Just to throw in my 2 cents. I had this dilemma myself when deciding to buy a new monitor. I went for the 2412m over the 2410 and I am very glad I did but of course that is for my situation. I watch films, play games, some light photoshop and the usual web browsing and word docs. I think I had a hard time making a decision because I always feel "ah but this is better and I like better, and what if I regret my decision because the other has something I need, what if... etc etc." The truth is the 2412m does all I need and I wouldn't have used the other features on the 2410 at all. Also the size, weight and heat advantages of the 2412m helped sway me as I had to transport it to Brazil so lighter was better and here cooler is always better. The £100 difference also helped me decide. So all I'm really saying is if you are not a serious photoshop user then get the 2412m, use the £100 for a samsung 830 and then come back and thank me later.
