    Are they all? Someone posted in another forum that he thought his panel was a Samsung S-PVA panel.

    Having not yet seen one in person, I have no way to know...

    I totally agree, no wonder people are flocking to the :apple: stores...

    Thanks! This has sealed the deal, off the the apple store tomorrow morning!

    One last question, does it have a built in fan?

    might want to call ahead and see if it's in stock.

    Yes, it does it have a built-in fan (I think), but it's a high quality and low RPM fan that you cannot hear even in a quiet environment...you will only notice that there is a fan when you place you hand under the Apple symbol and you feel a little burst of air.

    Big education discount on this in Australia. $250 off from the $1500. That's like 17% off.

    Makes it a far more realistic buy for me already :D

    It is $100, or about 12%.

    Great. I don't do any color sensitive work which would require a high-end panel but at least I won't feel so ripped off.

    Now if they would only show up for sale. I don't like ordering something and then having to wait 2-4 weeks to get it.

    I think I'm going to wait it another 1-2 more weeks when the apple store has plenty, so that if I do get a defective display (dead/stuck pixels and such) I can just take it right back for a quick swap, instead of trying to score another one.

    Argh, I want one so badly. But good deal or not, $800 (edu discount) is $800. Months of groceries! Hundreds of gallons of gasoline! Many shares of underpriced stocks!

    But I think its a fair trade for years of led backlit H-IPS eye candy goodness. You can always earn more money but there is only one 24" LED ACD out there for you! :D

    November 28, 2008. They said it would be up to 10 business days when I ordered it (and it hasn't been that long yet). I'm just excited to get it. :)

    Didn't bother checking. I was too skeer'd that I would accidentally rip a cable or something.

    As with stock, I did a swap immediately when I got my first one. They had plenty in stock and it as a small mall store.

    I believe he took his 24" led cinema display apart and that sticker is in the back panel inside the display.
