Hi all, maybe i am posting in the wrong section... if so apologies but i always seam to get good advice from those in here so here goes. I am going to hopefully buy a new powermac within the next two to three weeks and it doesn't come with a monitor as you all know. Now i am waiting on the machine to see whether G5 or G4 speed bumped but i figured no real advancement in monitors available is to be expected or am i wrong. Anyway when i went into my local apple store the other day i saw the demonstration iMac with the 17" widescreen. They also had the apple studio display 17" there. Now i know that image quality is all down to your own personal pref. The imac to me seamed to have a far superior image quality than apples separate studio displays. Would i be right in assuming that imac is using a newer technology in its imac displays.. which leads me to another question that i would like answered. If you were buying a new screen for a power mac, (the 17" is the one im interested in) is it worth the +1100 apple are (over) charging.... or would i be better off to go and buy a monitor from another manufacturer??? What is the best monitor around the 1000 to use with a powermac... from an image quality point of view. I work a lot with 3d graphics.... and do some divx and mpeg 4 work etc... Your advice and opinions would be greatly appreciated, Regards to you all (and hears hoping steve pulls a g5 outa his hat) I_Wolf.
