Apple Introduces 20-inch Cinema Display

Send Article to a Friend

Apple Introduces 20-inch Cinema Display -- Keeping up the pressure started at Macworld Expo, Apple last week released a new 20-inch Cinema Display, priced at $1,300. The new LCD screen offers 1680 by 1050 pixel resolution, a digital interface using the Apple Display Connector, and the same 16:10 widescreen aspect ratio that Apple has increasingly been using for its Cinema Display line and larger PowerBooks. Apple is saying the 20-inch Cinema Display works only under Mac OS X, likely because Mac OS 9's Display Manager doesn't support the new display's native resolution (though it may work at lower standard resolutions). Simultaneously, Apple lowered the price on the 23-inch Cinema HD Display, with its 1920 by 1200 pixel resolution, to $2,000 (a drop of $1,500). The 17-inch Studio Display (a mere 1280 by 1024 resolution) was also reduced to $700 (down from $1,000). Realistically, Apple's LCD displays are still more expensive than similarly large screens from other manufacturers, but all of the Apple displays I've seen have been gorgeous, in sharp contrast to the astonishingly poor quality of many of the cheapest LCD monitors out there.
