    I have their 24" WUXGA. It's a PVA but it's perfectly fine for my use. I got it on sale at $619; you can't beat that price, and I couldn't justify dropping the extra $400 for an IPS display from Apple, no matter how ugly the Dell cabinet is.

    So far, I love it! I also added the Ergotron LX desk mount arm and I love being able to have the total flexibility to where I can have the screen. I like NOT having USB ports on the monitor because I find myself moving it with the Ergotron and the mouse and other peripherals would just get twisted up if they weren't connected to the computer directly.

    Anyways, you should buy it - it's not a huge investment. I actually ordered it PRIOR to talking to my wife!!!

    wow that Ergotron LX desk mount arm looks awesome, but im a little too broke. What about not have any flexibility? Or is getting that more expensive 20" worth it( with all the added features, flexibility included )?

    Get the ARM! It's totally worth it! After a month, I will never use a regular, unmounted monitor again. It spoils you!

    The Dell 22" is 1680x1050 - the same as most 20" monitors.

    The Apple 23" is more comparable to the Dell 2407 24" monitor since it has a resolution of 1920x1200.

    ... so, the price difference is not that big of a surprise. (although the Dell 2407 is a much better value in my opinion than the Apple 23")
