    I really want to get a 2405FPW monitor for an upcoming powermac purchase I plan on making. But right now there is a coupon for 30% off of the 2005FPW. So should I hold out for a better deal on the 2405 or bit the bullet and go with a slightly smaller monitor? :eek:

    One off-topic question about the monitors...For those that have ordered the 2005 or the 2405s. What cables do they come with (i.e. DVI, VGA, etc)? I haven't been able to glean that from Dell's website.

    I'd get the 2005... personaly i'm planing to get 4 of them and use it on one system... I get a higher resolution (total) and more screen space (total) than the 30inch apple display; for about half the price (since the 2005 online can be found as cheap as 350 bucks according to *edit* http://displays.engadget.com/entry/1234000020041567/)

    Now ofcourse I do have the frame thing thats going to be there, (unless i deside to make a custom case, which i may do) but that really doesnt bug me much as i'll just put each application on another monitor; rather than playing a movie over all 4 or something.
