    Listen, I dont give out that kind of information.

    I haven't heard anything regarding this before, but is it a possibility that we could see a smaller, more affordable display from Apple. It seems to me that unless you are in a industry that requires this or a extreme gamer, you dont necessarily need to go as big as a 23" screen. Im looking to buy a mac mini and want a nice aluminum apple screen to go along with it, but dont want to have to spend over 500 for a screen. Basically is there any possibility that we can see a 19, 17 or even a 15 inch screen coming from apple. If not what are some good screens that would complement the mini from other manufacturers.

    You could get a Dell 20.1" Widescreen LCD for just under $500 on a good week. It's not a good week this week. :rolleyes:

    nobody makes them as nice as apple does, thats a fact! ;)

    i think they should produce smaller monitors too, since they have introduced the mini there is now a market for them. perhaps slightly more expensive than other brands monitors of the same size

    I wish they'd bring back the studio displays, but now in 17" and 19" widescreen (both 1440x900). These would be really good for MacMini. They should have lower specs than ACD, and a bit more expensive (approx. $50) than other brands with same monitor. This would give the monitor sale a deal. A Mac without a Mac screen is nearly pointless, and the ACD's cost the same as the Mini. Please APPLE!:rolleyes:

    I think things are going to head bigger and bigger!

    See this amazing touch screen!

    You've probably all seen it and discussed this video presentation of a technology that looks remarkably similar to "Minority Report" but hey? I'm a busy fellow. :eek: I don't get out to play much. :(

    The one concern I have is how sore one's arms would become after just an hour of frantic work on this screen. A mouse lets you rest your hand on the desk. Unless they can find a way where you don't have to fight gravity, I think this thing could cause a lot of workers compensation claims! :confused:

    I think it would be cool if they came out with an landscape A4 size aluminium display (since Tiger supports screen tilting).

    I like the Westinghouse 17" widescreen monitor.

    Just FYI, I just got this Acer LCD for $220 (had some vouchers) to go with my wife's new Mac mini. Note that the one in the pic is not the one for sale - the one for sale is black ONLY. No USB's on it, but it's nice for the price.
