It will cost less, work better and have a much larger market saturation.
Then the iSnobs will ****-talk it.

Re: New monitor for ya LTL..

Man, we'll see. It is $300 cheaper right now.

That apple screen is truly amazing.

I've spent some time using navydevildoc's 30" apple, and it blows away even the quality of a good Viewsonic. Under the Apple cover is a Sony monitor BTW.

You sure about that? I don't know about the 30", but the other apple and dell offerings are all the same identical LG panels under the hood...

built to Apple specs, in the ancient days they had a fantastic 15" that was the best looking in it's days that used a trinitron however the phosphors and electronics were to a different spec.

Ipods are built at the same factory as many Dells...and I have no reason to suspect they don't build Macs there too. But that doesn't mean they're equal in quality.

Re: New monitor for ya LTL..

Hmmmm...I have a gentleman at Sony to call a liar.


Who knows, maybe Sony did all the circuitry around the panel?

And of course, Apple's industrial designers made it look cute.

I suppose they could have swiched manufacturers? I have a few friends at Sony who were all exicted that I bought the 30" cinema display because it went towards their bonuses... granted a very small part, but still.



Regardless though... independent of who makes it, if the specs are tighter, it will be a better product. This 30" screen has to be seen to be believed. Remember, when you see it at the apple store, you are comparing it to other Apple-spec'ed monitors. I have a nice ViewSonic 20" LCD right next to this one, and the difference is so stark it's not even funny.

I'd still buy the dell... I have a dell LCD on my G5 now, another one about to be on the way!

take your panel apart for us, we are all very interested in knowing for sure!

Although it is awesome, the 30 is too big for me, I'd rather have (2) 4:3 20" displays.
