The Flatter the Better

The Flatter the Better -- Everyone expects traditional cathode ray tube (CRT) monitors to go the way of the dinosaurs eventually, but that day may come sooner rather than later thanks to Apple's introduction of a 17-inch version of its stunning flat-panel Studio Display. The 17-inch Studio Display features an optimum resolution of 1280 by 1024 pixels (although it also supports lower resolutions like 1024 by 768 and 640 by 480) and uses the the digital Apple Display Connector currently built into Power Mac G4 systems. The 17-inch LCD debuts at $1,000, while its 15-inch cousin drops in price to $600. At the same time, the spectacular 22-inch Apple Cinema Display becomes somewhat more affordable, dropping to $2,500 just three months after it fell from $4,000 to $3,000. At this point, the only CRT monitor Apple makes comes in an iMac: everything else is an LCD display. [MHA]
