    Hi,

    I'm looking into buying a 20 inch Dell flat panel.

    I would like to buy a widescreen, and I know that the ultrasharp monitors are supposed to be really great.

    What I want to know, is two things, first.

    Does the 20 inch ultrasharp http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?c=ca&l=en&s=dhs&cs=CADHS1&sku=320-4688

    Support HDMI

    Second is this 20 inch monitor: http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?c=ca&l=en&s=dhs&cs=CADHS1&sku=320-5123

    significantly worse than the ultrasharp.

    I currently have a 17 inch Intel iMac, and want a second display, but in the next 2 or three 3 years I will be buying a desktop, likely a mac pro, and will be getting two displays for that.

    I do a lot of video editing, but I will likely not being doing anything in HD.

    So, basically, will the cheaper 20 inch monitor look worse than the screen I have on the iMac?

    Is there anything else I should consider?

    Thanks

    No, the 20" Dell Monitor does not support HDMI. As far as which one to buy, if you're doing video editing of any kind, get the ultrasharp.
