Cinema Displays See Price Cut

Cinema Displays See Price Cut -- Apple also reduced prices on its two smaller Apple Cinema Displays last week. The price of the entry-level 20-inch model drops $200, from $1,000 down to $800, and the 23-inch display drops $300, from $1,800 to $1,500. The massive 30-inch display remains priced at $3,000, but the new dual 2.7 GHz Power Mac G5 supports the 30-inch display in its stock configuration, eliminating the need for an additional video card. Adding support to another Power Mac G5 configuration will run you $350 for the necessary Nvidia GeForce 6800 Ultra DDL video card as a build-to-order option; the standalone kit for existing machines costs $500 or $600, and adding such a card fills one of your PCI slots. Also providing built-in support for the 30-inch display is the 1.67 GHz 17-inch PowerBook. [ACE]
