    Does anyone know if the panel used in Apples 24 inch Cinema display is the same as the 24 inch iMac?

    I could easily be wrong, but I didn't think the iMac was using LED screens ... yet. I thought they were still plain "old" LCD technology. (There's no mention of LED on Apple's iMac webpages that I could find.)

    The LCD panel is distinct from the backlight. The iMac uses a CCFL backlight, and the ACD uses an LED (edge lit?) backlight, but the panels are either identical or very similar.
