Is it justified for a company to upgrade the hardware for some people and refuse for other?
In my work, screen real estate is really important. I have been noticing some of my colleagues with these bigger screens for some time now. But when I ordered the bigger screen, my manager refused and the reason given was that the higher management had decided that they now only order the new screen for a new employee, or if your current screen is faulty or really old. My current screens work fine, but I guess a bigger screen with more real estate to work on will increase my productivity and efficiency. What's bothering me is that why are some people given a better tool than other? To be honest it is not a big issue, but it is still bothering me
Do you think it would be wise to escalate this issue?
Edit: Would just like to add that its not as if this is a purely cosmetic upgrade. A bigger screen real estate is quite useful in our work. Can I do without it, yes sure, but so can other people who got the upgrade. Is that my ego speaking, maybe. I think one important detail that I failed to convey in my original post is that initially the screen was available to anyone who ordered it. The colleagues that I am talking about who got the new one did not have a faulty screen. It was only when I ordered, I was told that the policy has been changed, and from now on, only faulty screen will be replaced.
