Dell 24" LCD - $577!!!<br><br>I bought mine for 700-something earlier this year, and I can certainly attest to its awesomeness - so can marge, she got the same one... Works great with games too, btw. <br><br>I wish I had room on my desk, I'd get another for that price! The deals don't last long on Dell's site, so if you were thinking of pulling the trigger, do it now!<br><br>

Check this link here.<br><br>All sorts of comparisons, specs, what have you.<br><br>I can tell from personal experience that the Dell looks amazing with OSX, and I'm not even using the DVI cable! I use the DVI connection with my PC game rig, only because Windows is retarded when it comes to switching resolutions in and out of games. It's really a compliment to Apple more than anything else...<br><br>It has 5 different inputs, as well as all sorts of memory card slots and USB 2.0 ports on the side as well. Go check out the specs on Dell if you want every single detail, but I believe the *only* major knock on this particular model of LCD was the viewing angle (not as wide as Apple)...<br><br><br><br>
<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>if you were thinking of pulling the trigger, do it now!<p><hr></blockquote><p>Done! <br><br>I've been thinking about getting the Dell every time I see these deals come up. I know the specs of the two are at the least comparable, if not better for the Dell, but I've still been hesitant. One reason why (and you can laugh) is it won't match my aluminum tower. But, comparing the prices, even with my educational discount, the Dell is still over $300 cheaper. How can I pass that up. That could go a long way to more memory when I order the MacPro.<br><br>I've never bought a single thing from Dell, ever. I need to go take a shower now.<br><br><br><br>BTW, thanks a bunch for the heads-up.<br><P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by Trog on 11/21/06 02:18 PM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>
Heh. I picked the free shipping (another savings). The total with tax was only $622, amazing.<br><br>I'm gonna be traveling to the in-laws for Turkey day this week anyway, so no reason to rush delivery.<br><br>
Congrat's! You are going to love it!!!<br><br>The only difference between the Dell and Apple monitor is no firewire. Other than that it's been perfect!! I watch movies on my monitor. It's the same size screen as my TV but a WHOLE bunch better.<br><br>Don't worry about the slightly less viewing angle. I've encountered zero problems with that.<br><br>Just a bit of warning. I don't know what size monitor you currently have but I went from an 18" to this 24" screen. The new real estate will blow you away. It took me a day or so to get used to it.<br><br>
I've got the original (plastic frame) 20" Apple LCD. I'll bet this will still blow me away.<br><br>Hey guys, I see something about it having slots for memory cards? Does this mean things like Type I flash cards that are used in digital cameras? That would be nice.<br><br>
