There is a pic like this already in the post your imac g5 thread (in this forum), but it's a pretty dark image, so here's a better one in lightRob587 said:prefferably a 15" powerbook, or a powermac, or anything else made by apple. Basically w/e you got. lol.... thanks
It is a lovely display, nice pic'srobbieduncan said:OK pictures up.
The display is superb. It's really bright, the colours are good, the response time seems good too. I like the fact that you get a DVI cable in the box (along with the normal 15 pin VGA cable). Watching videos full screen is perfect.
Now all I need is a VESA wall mount and my Mac mini to arrive...
Some screens have USB hubs, some don't. Apple ones have firewire hubs as well iirc. It doesn't run the USB over DVI though. You need to run a separate USB cable from your computer to the display as well as power and DVI.Platform said:It is a lovely display, nice pic's
I have an 17" TOPCON LCD monitor and it is also DVI but as I noticed on yours is it a USB hub as well

As depressing as it is to say, seeing the apple cinema 20" and the 2005fpw next to each other - I feel the 2005fpw is a superior display, although not as sexy.wwooden said:I am looking at possibly upgrading my external display ( Samsung SyncMaster 170MP LCD) to a 20". With my educational discount, I can get the Apple one for $899. Even though the Dell is cheaper, I like the option of having more firewire ports. I have an external harddrive, my iPod and my iSight and it is a pain in the butt only have one on the computer. With the screen, I can leave the iSight always plugged in and then connect the harddrive and the ipod together. I was already considering a firewire hub, so the difference between the two displays (sorta) cancels out a bit. And the fact that I could get an Apple one makes it that much better.

I also wanted to know can you display 1680x1050 with a mac powerbook on the dell display?
