    I'm pretty sure I couldn't even talk my wife into a 30" Cinema HD display (plus the dual 2.5 PM to go with it) without involving tons of platinum/diamond jewelry. That's one pretty special (or imaginary) friend you've got there.

    Let me get this straight -- you have a $3300 monitor and a $500 video card, and you're downloading a "free" movie to watch on it? Just checking....

    Sound's like BS to me

    WHO in their right mind would buy (and pay for) a 30" Apple screen and then GIVE IT AWAY ???? What machine are you using it on anyway ?

    P.S. If you have your friend's number please give it to me, I want to be their friend too ! :confused:

    I also demand pictures of this setup.

    Sound like this friend must be some friend. Maybe he wants more than friendship :rolleyes:

    I got to see one of these up close at the Orlando Apple Store two weeks ago...

    If I had one of those things, I'd never leave the house ;-)

    I must admit to being at least skeptical of this one. Having seen the pics, I am no longer skeptical, just extremely jealous and maybe a little bitter. :p

    So, what do you have to do to get someone to like you enough to do this for you? Whatever it is, clearly, I have no shot... :eek:

    Jeez people, don't be bashful, say what you think. Someone gets a nice gift and they either want more than a friendship, they're lying or you want to know how much money they make. :rolleyes:

    Nice monitor, BTW. :)

    I must admit I feel a twinge of jealously, as I dream of replacing my CRT with a 20" Apple display! But then there's rent, car repairs... :(

    Congrats on the mammoth display! :D
