I ended up making my monitor decision on an HP 23" HD f2304, which is just amazing. I already have an Apple 20" and the HP just blows it away in all areas. Plus it has multiple inputs (composite/s-video/dvi - both analog and digital, and d-sub. I currently use it as my main work monitor (with the 20" as the 2nd monitor) in Pro Tools, and then once work is over I use the 23" as my TV. Based on all this hoopla about the Apple monitor colour inaccuracies I'm definitely going to be holding off on the 30" for a while. I'm not shelling out $3k for a giant pink-tinged screen, so waiting is the game for me now. My 2.5 is coming with the 6800 (e v e n t u a l l y) so I'll reassess the situation later.



    Only a week until *my* G5 is due to ship. Let's see if that slips again...haha!!











    Oh gee, thanks for reminding me about the pink 23" display's! (Glad you did, really!)



    I just emailed my vendor asking when my last date to cancel my entire order was advising I might unless I hear some concrete news about the 6800's and 30" displays. This 3 month long fairytale has me disgusted.

    Well, as I mentioned earlier in the thread, I received a call from Apple (yes, they called me) a few weeks ago now telling me my new ship date of "on or before 10/08/04" would *not* slip again, and it came with a big apology. Also as I previously stated, I was very surprised to get the call, but also very appreciative of the courtesy. They double checked on my ship-to addy, and that was that. So.... all being well I should probably have it in 10 days to two weeks from today.



    If it *does* slip again...well...I'll hope it arrives before Christmas at that point (or I might change my order to a new PB instead)

    I got the same email and checked the FedEx tracking number. It actually shipped. Now all I need is the 30" display which should come in a few days.

    Pretty much. Mine was originally scheduled for August 28th. So, that's 40 days and 40 nights.

    Congrats Harry!!! Enjoy it. I hope you don't have the problems I have had with the 6800 card. I can't wait to see the 30".
