Apple Introduces & Updates Monitors -- Apple recently announced the Multiple Scan 1705, an MPR II and Energy Star compliant 17-inch multi-sync monitor that can handle resolutions up to 1024 by 768 at 75 Hz (or 1280 by 1024 at 60 Hz). The monitor uses a flat-square shadow mask tube with a 0.28 mm dot pitch (and a 15.8-inch viewable image size) rather than the usual Trinitron tube found in Apple monitors, but at an estimated street price of $819 it might just be a good buy. Apple also announced it is upgrading the Apple Multiple Scan 20 display to a .26 mm stripe pitch Trinitron tube. Though the Multiple Scan 20 is an excellent monitor, with an Apple Price of $2,149, that extra four inches of viewable display area comes with a big price tag attached. [GD]
