That's hard, because sources of the hardware tend to change at the
whim of the bean counters and/or purchasing agent. As others have
noted, LCD's are generally quiet, with power supplies being the
potential problem. I have two different vintages of Dell 20" LCD's
here in the shack-- one about 3 yrs old and one about 2, and my wife
has one of the newer ones. All are within 100 ft of my antennas, and
were even closer in Chicago. No problems observed.
That said, I did hear hash on 2 meters when I scrolled or otherwise
changed the video content of my IBM T22 or T41 laptop with the power
cord connected, but not if I pulled it and ran on batteries. The 2M
antennas were a pair of PAR loops about 50 ft from the laptop.
