    I'm looking for a good 15" LCD for my 12" PowerBook.

    I've been looking at the Samsung 152t

    I can get it for around $280, which seems like a good deal, considering the features on this display.

    Please tell me if you think this is a good display. It's within my price range, and has a higher contrast ratio, brightness, and viewing angle than most other 15" LCD's. Even though my 12" PowerBook doesn't have DVI, if I get a new computer, it'll come in handy.

    Please post with comments and advice. Thanks!

    i have always heard very good things about samsung LCDs, i must say. have you considered a refurb'd 15 inch apple display, or is that way too much?

    also, why didn't you just get a 15 inch powerbook if you wanted a 15 inch display? :p :D

    it doesnt seem good to me. I have a gateways LCD which I love, and it was selling for $360 a while back. Go to dealmac.com to get good LCD prices.

    The refurbed apple 15" sounds like a good idea too.

    i wouldn't go on the prices of others too much though. you really have to take a look at this LCD on its own. it seems to have pretty good specs, and this is a really good company that is putting it out. i recommend finding it at best buy or compusa (looks common enough to be found there) and checking it out in person. you really need to do this to get a feel for the looks.

    That looks like a good deal if it has DVI as well as VGA - the difference is very noticable, and even though you'll only be using the VGA analog and not the DVI port, you have the option there should you ever use it with a tower in the future.

    I think Samsung make Apple's LCDs too - though I could be wrong...:confused:
