I'm in the market for a display. I'm looking at the apple cinema displays, but I also heard that the dell cinema displays are comparable. If I can help it I'd like to buy one for cheaper than I can get it from apple or dell. I'm a student, so I can get the educational prices. For example, the 30" apple cinema display is 2,300 with the educational discount. I could also get a refurbished 30" display from apple for 2,099. So I'm looking for something cheaper if I can find it.
Does anyone want to get rid of their Apple Cinema Display or their Dell Cinema Display. It doesn't have to be 30", 30" is just preferred.

I could also possibly trade. I have a G5 2.16 ghz iMac. It's the last revision before the new intel machines came out.

NYmacAttack is selling a 23" Apple display for $999 and a 30" for $1999 right now (each + shipping). Don't know how that sounds to you, and I have never bought from him (though he did just buy something from me), but I thought I would at least point that out for you.

Yeah I saw that. That's more than I want to pay for a used display. If I'm going to spend 2000, I might as well spend the extra hundred bucks, get one from apple, have free shipping, a newly refurbished machine, and a full year of applecare. I'm definitely looking for a better deal. Thanks for looking for me though.

I have PM’ed you offering to work a deal out with you. However you will never find someone selling a 30" ACD for US$1500 shipped that’s 1000-1300 less than retail (Depending on tax). Even if you buy a refurbished one it will be more than $200 more than mine with tax. Since mine is under warranty you can buy apple care for $79 and be under warranty for another 2.5 years. If you find someone that is selling one for $1500 shipped let me know at that price I would buy another. :)
