2012 iMac side by side with a Thunderbolt Display

Does anybody have some pictures of the 2012 iMac next to a Thunderbolt display. I'm trying to determine if the screens are that different from each other from a reflection standpoint.

Yeah… I've got an ACD but I never noticed any reflections because I always take care of putting screens in the right places in order not to have them.

I was in the store the other day though and went to play a little with the new iMac. Looked nice. I then went to see a TB Display (mine isn't TB) and was shocked to see the difference. Isn't huge, don't get me wrong, it's just that I wasn't expecting any difference and there's some.

So yes. Less reflective. Still is, but less.

Was the difference observed when they were on, off or both ways. I think if it's when they are on it would bother me to have a 27" iMac next to a Thunderbolt display. I may have to rethink my purchase and go with two Thunderbolts and a Mac Mini.

It depends on your specific setup. In a light controlled environment, you probably wouldn't notice a difference. If you have a light source behind you, the new screen will show a more dulled out reflection than the Thunderbolt Display.
