    30 " display

    Prices for 20 and 23" remain the same



    30" only works on Power Mac G5...no existing card can drive it, dvi isn't enough. SO it uses 2 dvi's running parallel



    Graphics card required costs $600



    30" costs $3300





    ...That's all she wrote folks...I sure has heck won't be buying a 30"

    How bout the 20"... only 220x150 more px's to make it HD. At that price, it'd be killer.

    No surprise on pricing since high quality LCD prices have risen do to lack of production capacity. There are plenty of alternatives.

    geez, everyone complaining about price. correct me if i am wrong, but wasn't the 23" display way more than any of these behemoths when it first debuted??? i mean, yeah, it cost a mint, but you accepted that if you wanted to be the first to have a gi-normous display.

    Those who complained that the illustrations of the display on Think Secret were "ugly". Take a look at the real deal:

    Not much of an improvement. Well, at least they match now. So is this the source of the hangable displays rumor?

    The developer price actually went UP for the 20". Used to be 1039, now 1169.



    Also, there's a 17" on sale, but it's $629, a $70 discount. Anyone remember how much the 17" was?



    Edit: Actually, it looks like the pricing hasn't been updated yet... The .edu store has the 17" at 599 and the 20" at $1169.

    They are the current keyboard and mouse, obviously.

    Except they look like they have an aluminum finish (at least in the VR file).

    Ugh. Port placement is horrible. Who wants cables dangling out the bottom of the display? Everytime you tilt or move the display you'll be moving the cables. And how much will the cables weigh down the display for adjustment? And for quick plugging things in and out the ports are on the back where you can't see them.



    You'd think the most logical use for the display ports would be to plug your keyboard in to save snaking it down to the CPU. Never gonna happen with these displays.



    Not that I'll ever buy one - WAY out of my budget, but I was hoping for something a bit more iMac like with tilt and swivel capabilities. The iMac's display design is great for showing things to coworkers or family members.



    Is that uber-cable fixed to the back of the display? I dislike monitors you can't remove every cable from. Dangling cables make moving and installing a pain, IMHO.



    Sorry, but I think Apple missed with these displays.



    - Jasen.

    There are ports on the front of the PowerMac. The displays are a perfect match for the PowerMacs, in both aesthetics and in usability.
