Please tell me this is just a bad angle and that the actual position of the screens line up?
Looks like they dont, I really want that setup too! Thats a bummer!
Is that the 27" LED Cinema Display?
Where si that picture from?
I'm sure they thought of this. Probably just the angle. I bet those pictures aren't to scale too. And if they DON'T line up, just put a little book underneath accordingly.
It's always been like this. Due to the iMac's "chin" the displays don't line-up as you'd like them to
I actually think they are to scale, pointing out the cable connecting them together. Would be a lot easier to just snap a pic of them together, then to try to photoshop them and add a cord. either way, kinda a disappointment if there isin't built in height adjust ability. And with Apple, we know that's a high improbability.
A book works, but why? Dual monitors are so common these days, you'd think they'd be more geared for Imac users.
Height: 51.7 cm (20.4 inches)
Width: 65.0 cm (25.6 inches)
27" LED Dispaly
Height: 49.1 cm (19.35 inches)
Width: 65 cm (25.7 inches)
Assuming the borders are the same as as the widths are pretty much matching it look like the borders are the same!
the iMac screen will be 2.6cm higher than the cinema display one!
As DannyBres already stated, they have the same width, an my visual extrapolation is based on it.
So i will have nearly £3k of kit on my desk with only 2 discrete white cables Power and displayport, all in sleek glass and brushed alu!
And I am going to need a BOOK under my second monitor!
That is lame!
You could also use something like a Belkin USB hub under the Cinema Display - that would get you most of the way there. I have one under my 27" iMac, just to raise it up a bit.
its a shame. heres to hoping we get some type of 3rd party stands.
Why do you need them to line up?
Cause when you pay ~£3,000 for a computer and you are working on 2 sreens you dont want to have to look up and down every time you look between screens and it will look rubbish
If you've used dual monitors, you will probably be aware of how nice it is to have a single app, Photoshop or lightroom for example, open across two windows. When two screens don't line up, the menu bar therefore doesn't line up and it just looks odd to me and to many other people. If you like the look, then all the better for you. Honestly, I am even disappointed now by the foot on the Imac. I know its nothing new, but they just don't look right together.
Whats wrong IYO with the iMac foot?
Just put something under the lower screen an raise it a bit.......
