No, you didn't. But when Dell offer a display for over $700 less than Apple, of equal quality and actually better specd (ports, warranty), those of us with open minds can accept that they are offering a great product for great value.

they are really huge, but wouldnt people like to have two 20 inchers rather than one 24 incher?? its the same price..

Depends on the person. But yea, I would agree with you. Two 20" displays have more screen real estate than one 24" display.



Off topic: jer446, if I may ask, were you a member of the older TechTV messageboards? I know I've seen that username before. If you weren't then someone used that exact same user name over there.

<snip enormous picture>Yeah, but don't you just love the whole faux-aluminium grey plastic theme this joker has?

I'm totally jealous. I'd adore a 20, or 24" - but I'd certainly not base my entire many-thousands-of-dollars-worth investment around the DELL corporate colour scheme.

It's mere coincidence that the colors match... I personally love my bluetooth dinovo and can see why he would enjoy and want to own his rf model. Does wanting a keyboard that only comes in one color mean that it was intentional? I can't believe you would base your hardware purchases on color over function when no other comparable product exists...

What keyboard is that?

I believe it's a Logitech DiNovio keyboard. Runs about $200 if I recall right.

Nah, it's the cordless notebook version (you can tell from the colour) which was about $125 last I checked.

Nope, its a logitec one...

I was thinking of getting it and settled on the Apple keyboard - saved some money (Amazon certificate vs. saved up money)

uhm, yeah I know. I was just saying it was the cheaper notebook version rather than the more expensive $200 bluetooth one.

I was thinking that all along. They have some pretty cool stuff there. Is that the KAX┼S wall shelf?

Darius_Latamus
Mar 14, 2005, 10:03 PM
Yep, that is the KAXAS, and the shelf that the statues are sitting on is the LACK shelf in black...both from Ikea.

is it possible to watch tv on the 24 inch monitor with a mac?

if so, can you watch HDTV on it?

That's a great setup. I think I'll be getting the 24" monitor when the time comes.
