Reply 5 of 65 netbanshee Posts: 73member June 28, 2004 12:36PM How bout the 20"... only 220x150 more px's to make it HD. At that price, it'd be killer.

There are plenty of alternatives. Reply 11 of 65 rok Posts: 3,519member June 28, 2004 1:40PM 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.

Reply 13 of 65 macsrgood4u Posts: 3,007member June 28, 2004 1:50PM Those who complained that the illustrations of the display on Think Secret were "ugly". Take a look at the real deal: Reply 14 of 65 twinbrook46636 Posts: 432member June 28, 2004 1:55PM Quote:Originally posted by MacsRGood4U 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? Reply 15 of 65 discstickers Posts: 314member June 28, 2004 1:58PM 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. Reply 18 of 65 gt wheeler Posts: 3member June 28, 2004 2:07PM Except they look like they have an aluminum finish (at least in the VR file). Reply 19 of 65 jasenj1 Posts: 922member June 28, 2004 2:13PM 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. Reply 20 of 65 nittanyliontosh Posts: 182member June 28, 2004 2:28PM There are ports on the front of the PowerMac. The displays are a perfect match for the PowerMacs, in both aesthetics and in usability. «1234» Sign In or Register to comment.
