Went down to Soho store Saturday morning and picked up a sweet a** 17". I am blown away by the razor sharp and super brite screen. I was working on a Pismo 500 which now seems to be so dark and sluggish in comparison. Apps are snappy as heck, itunes opens in one bounce, as does safari. This thing has handled everything I've thrown at it...and the best part, it's still sitting at the stock config of 256 mg ram. I'll update with 512 soon, and look forward to seeing how speeds increase as a result. One thing: iMovie was 3.0.0 before I did a software update. It took over a minute to load and was leaden. No wondered they updated to 3.0.1 so quickly. It now works smoothly. Anyway, this puppy definitely meets my photoshop, iMovie, FCExpress, Dreamweaver, Flash needs. I keep asking myself, how did I manage before having the ability to move the monitor like this into so many previously impossible viewing angles?
