    Has there been any evidence of Apple moving their entire Display lineup to an all-wide aspect ratio? Does that make sense? That may make the 15 become a 17 and the 17 become a 19 simply by widening them...

    I am going to buy a 17" Studio today and am wondering if it can wait.

    I figure the moneyback being offered right now (EXP: 12/31/01) is either to boost the economy (as many buisness are doing) or it it to up revenue before the first...

    soooo..WHAT DO YOU THINK???

    Moneyback only with computer purchase

    I believe you only get money back when you purchase the LCDs in conjunction with a G4 Tower. If you are buying just the LCD or the LCD and the Tower, I say wait until the 7th. Jobs might announce something new or changes to existing products at MWSF.

    Actually I am buying the 867mhz and the 17" monitor today.

    I am just inquiring as to rumors of a new aspect ratio.

    If the 15 and the 17" are widened it could make them 17 and 19".

    what I think...

    I think they are trying to push out as much hardware as possible by offering rebates & discounts...

    possibly for MWSF?
