    Do they use the same motherglass?

    No way!

    1. If that is gonna happen I'll be so sad because I was about to get a 17" LCD.

    2. Mayyyyyyyybe, the prices of the LCDs may decrease and they just want the rumor to spread so they can sell more LCDs to the actual price. I have seen that happening a lot, specially with ram.

    questions regarding lcds

    how come the lcds on laptops and apple studio displays do not have the clear plastic cover that the new imac screen has? i mean it would prevent it from getting damaged or getting oily residue from fingers poking the screen! and beyond that is there like a plastic shield for the screen on ibooks and such? because cleaning that screen is a b!tch! oh and ugh i wish they would come out with a powerbook that had either stylus input or a touch screen so you could use it as a tablet! regardless as soon as they can make the powerbook perform @ the level of the 1GHZ g4 processor then i'll get one because my ibook is painfully slow, so slow i dont reboot it, i just put it to sleep because the resume time in X.1 is faster than classic or any other OS. I think it would be cool to release a new pro keyboard which is a touch interface instead of keys, like the touch screen calculators!

    The iMac does not have a plastic cover over its screen. It has a plastic halo around the outside of it, but there's nothing over the front of it...

    Do you want to hear something cruel?

    The other day I went to HBO Latin America here in Caracas, I went to the office of one of the producers (a girl) and, of course, every body there had a Mac but she had a 22" flat screen monitor, facing the window and the screen was yellow because of the son light!!!

    1. Or the LCD are not such good quality.

    2. Fu***k, damn it, bitc***, hor***, that doesn't take care of what is not her's.

    I was in the job interview looking at her and looking at the monitor behind her and I just wanna to ask her why she was such idiot!!! If she didn't want it she could give it up to me!!!

    I really appreciate the insight. Excuse me while my stomach is still turning.... [Five minutes later] Now, what does this article have to do with the prices of LCD? My word, it may be a point of view, but that is also sad, to ruin a beautiful product by Apple, the top dog 22" LCD monitor.... [Five minutes pass]

    All right, back to prices. I was planning to buy a 20" Sharp LCD TV in 2003, but I guess I will be waiting a lot longer for price drops. That's a shame.
