[echo-perspective] New computer icon set

Just something else i just noticed.
The screen inside that monitor is missing something.. something like
an inside border (don't know how that's called)..
The thing i mean is that the screen itself (the flat panel) and the
outline seem to be on the same depth now (no shadows) while the
screens themselves normally are pushed back a little in the casing
creating some kind of bevel(?).

I hope you can do something with this vague suggestion.. really hard
to explain when you don't know how it's called ^_^
i will see if i can change something in this screen in the weekend (no

Another thing i noticed (in firefox when clicking on the SVG) is that
the text on the keyboard looks really strange and so black... i think
that should be changed a bit to dark gray.

And perhaps a completely different idea for a monitor (the one i'm
looking at right now while typing this)

a black monitor! (since you tend to be liking every icon in a darker
theme anyway). The design of that monitor is nice and would fit
perfectly with a black keyboard as well.
And the keyboard i use : http://www.3t.hu/images/Logitech%20ultra%20flat.jpg

remake both in icon style and you will probably have a perfect icon for:
- Monitor
- Keyboard
- Desktop
- and all that have a monitor and/or a keyboard in them
