***The Official New Displays Thread***

Posted:
in Future Apple Hardware edited January 2014
Post your display productions here. Will the New Displays have built-in iSights? Lower price? More inputs?



I think we might see new displays that will have a optional iSight and maybe a HDMI port.

    I'm praying that Apple can deliver a 24" Cinema Display with DVI, HDMI and HDCP-Component with PIP and a built-in iSight for $799.00. Most likely they would want $999.00 for it, though.

    Three panel displays.



    Good for science project use.

    Just kidding. It would be really nice if Apple would improve the displays and add more inputs (I don't want a TV in my office as well as my monitor), but I just don't see it happening soon nor at MWSF. The displays tend to go a long time before being upgraded.

    The camera will be built into the display (i.e. behind the pixels-patent).

    NOT MWSF 2007. With Leopard, Cinema Displays should probably have iSight or some form of camera. Perhaps built -into the screen? I highly doubt it, but maybe.

    Didn't Apple stop selling the iSight camera? That should be a pretty good hint that the new Displays will have built-in iSight.

    The old iSight had problems with lead. So they might be introducing a new iSight. iSight 2.0 if you will.

    Not an iSight360 then?

    I'd buy an 802.11 based iSight with remote control panning capability [as security monitor].

    They really need to lower the price substantially, if nothing else. I just bought a Dell 20" widescreen for less than half the price of an Apple.

    What I'd like to see:



    Apple Studio Display (consumer)

    19" Widescreen

    1440x900

    5MS Response Time

    700:1 Contrast Ratio

    Front Row and iSight $349



    Apple Cinema Display (Professional)

    20" Widescreen

    1680x1050

    6ms Response Time

    1600:1 Contrast Ratio

    Front Row and iSight $699



    Apple Cinema Display (Professional)

    24" Widescreen

    1920x1200

    6ms Response time

    1000:1 Contrast Ratio

    Front Row and iSight $999



    Apple Cinema Display (Professional)

    30" Widescreen

    2560x1600

    8ms Response Time

    1000:1 Contrast Ratio

    Front Row and iSight $1999



    This would be pretty much an update of existing displays to the newest panels, adding iSight and Front Row Capability, and adding a consumer model based on the popular 19" panel.

    The 20" Dell is actually a consumer model while Apple's is a higher end 20" professional model.

    1. You'd confuse the consumer and professional models

    2. There's about an $80 difference between the 19" and the 20" on the PC side. This may not be much for the deep pockets of hardcore Macdom, but for switchers or lower end Mac users it is a large chunk of change.

    3. Having a display with this panel myself, I can tell you it is more than large enough for all but the most demanding consumers.

    But why 19"?! Apple has no reason for making another display size. and who would confuse a 20" thats meant for consumers with the pro one? Thats like saying that there is no difference between a Apple 20" display and a Dell because they are both 20". There maybe a difference in price but most people won't notice. And I'm not saying that the 19" is too small. Why 19" when you can have 20"?



    PS, If you want a cosmetic difference between the pro and consumer model, then why not have the consumer model all plastic (white or black)

    $80 which would be closer to $100 from Apple. When you're dealing computers that under $1000, that's a lot of money. The 19" widescreen panel has pretty much become the new entry level standard.

    I'd LOVE HDMI for when Blu Ray players become affordable, and an IR reciever for FR, not so fussed about iSight but that'd be great!



    More USB ports would be best for me though, I'll be getting the 23' (hopefully 24') in Feb for my Black Macbook so a matte black display would be brilliant! 8)

    What makes it higher-end and "professional?" They use the same panel, from what I understand. They do have a cheaper 600/1 contrast ratio model, but I got the 800/1 model refurbed for $289.00. It looks friggin great, aside from the Dell logo on the front.
