    What could be the reason for the release of new Cinemadisplay dispays?
    What is lacking from the models that are on now?

    I'd say that the only way they would upgrade them is to add a 33" display or something higher.

    I think they have all they need right now.

    A 33" Display? JEEBUS!

    Why not just go with a 42" Plasma already! lol

    Hahaha, no kidding. Well, wait, that wouldn't really work, would it? I mean aren't Apple's displays PCs and Mac compatible?

    The iSight couldn't work on the PC unless they wrote a driver for it in which I doubt they would.

    Some how I doubt that they're overly worried about catering to the PC market. I would expect to see an iSight in the new ones.

    Maybe they'll add ports to it and close that gap between them and 2005fpw's?

    If you look @ [URL="http://buyersguide.macrumors.com/'] this[/URL] that says the displays are in mid-cycle, so slim chance of current line-up of displays but there's a chance of adding another size of display ;) ;)

    I don't think Apple would really care. and it would work but it would require that you plug the display in via USB.

    the reason for the release of new ACD's is hdcp support, current apple displays will not support the blue ray dvd's, so you will not be able to enjoy full hd movies if they're protected ( blue ray dvd's are), you'll get a black screen or lower resolution. Apple will probably release new displays with the new intel-based power macs which will be released this year (august maybe). that's why I'll wait the new acd's, cauz with such high resolutions displays you'll want to see hi def movies (hd trailers work,they have no protection) on it.

    Well, the new iSight is a USB device on the MBP and iMac so it could just be seen as a generic USB video camera by Windows.

    You'd have to plug it into the USB port too but you do that anyway with the FireWire and USB hub on the current ACDs.

    Good point this - they could definitely do with expanding ports and interface options. Would help justify the price!

    I'd love to see Composite ports at least on it, and some S-video loving. ;)

    I'd buy it then.

    They could really use an upgrade to the response time of the Cinema displays. It is currently 16ms i think, while most competition is below the 12ms. Very important for video/games.

    I really would like to see some ports like the dell display's and I would also like to see a really thin version because the current ones are really thick and a price drop.

    With games it really does depend. For online FPS, 16ms is way fast enough considering that your pings to servers are generally higher than that... ;)

    Yes, 16 ms is fine for gaming. I use a Dell 2005FPW on my Windows box for gaming and it's great. You can notice slight ghosting, but ONLY if you really look for it. As for when Apple is revising their displays... I have no idea. I do know the iMac's screen has better specs, so I am hoping for an update sometime in the near future. And when that does happen, I'll probably end up selling my Dell display.

    There is room for improvements. The 20" iMac has a better screen right now than the 20" cinema display, so there's one big area for improvement right there. :cool:

    And not to mention pros like to use Apple's displays, so I can't see them holding off THAT much longer.

    Agreed. I hope they will not coincide the new displays with the release of the Intel PowerMacs, as I think August will be too long for many to wait for an update. Hopefully sometime in April we will see a refresh to the line.

    i think they should consider a 17" widescreen display, with around 1400 x 900 res. something cheaper than the 899 base priced 20"ers.

    Yeah, whatever happened to the smaller models? Not everyone needs a 20"+ display... I do, but some people would love a 17" model. I actually see this happening... but when?

    hmm..

    these things are cool, compact, cheap, universal... the apple displays are nice, but the prices :eek: ... i know they look good, but this also looks good (not as good), but still good.
