Im obsessed with them. Although pricey, once they drop under $2500, I'll get one. I feel pity for those that paid $3999 for the 22" Cinema Display several years ago.

Imagine my 20" LCD placed on it's side and multiplied by 2.5 and I've got a pretty good idea how much bigger the 30" is than to my 20".

If you put this back into the intended subject of this thread, i'd say that would be hard to do, unless you have gigantic pants.

I also am very interested in the 30" Cinema Display. So far it's only looking at on when I visit my local Apple Store. My wife is also very interested.

Is it possible to drive 2 30" displays with a video card currently available?

I would love to know what kind of FrameRate you get with UT2004 on that 30" with the Xtra Graphic's Card in the G5.

Anybody have a clue?

Hey now, this could be a mastercard commercial...

buying the 23" acd in july/02.....$3499
needing the dvi -> adc adapter...$199
watching everybody piss and moan and get green with envy years ahead of the curve...priceless

Yeah you pay dearly for high-end gear, especially apple. But when your family, friends, see that screen, it somehow is worth it. Oh yeah and the fact that it is the best ****ing monitor on the planet...well that helps too,

Dual 30" displays are old hat. Someone get the PCI Express version of the X800 and get 3 of those displays running!
