    Not bad looking...16:9 aspect ratio, but cheaper than the corresponding Sony one. :) Coming soon...

    Whoops...forgot to attach the article. It says expected to be $699.

    And the Sony LCD I was talking about is this one which costs $999. But they have their differences (i.e. no speakers...:))

    This is quite nice and for a good price. I hope Apple realizes that they need to start competing a little better with their quality and price when it comes to LCDs. Even though they're not wide format, the Formac monitors are a much better buy than the Apple ones. And now with more companies getting into the wide screen format, Apple has to start being concerned.

    I hope when the new Apple monitors come out they aren't too expensive and have higher brightness and contrast ratios.

    The 17" iMac G4 has a screen resolution of 1440 by 990.

    The Apple 17" Studio Display is 1280 by 1024, so while you don't get the widescreen, you do get the resolution of the 172W and then some.

    I suspect that when Apple releases a widescreen 17" display, the resolution will be at least as good as the 17" iMac.

    I was thinking of having it as a second moniter to my powerbook...the resolution would be great for me...but i wouldn't mind the 1440x990 of the 17" iMac screen ;)
