    Hi, I want an Apple Cinema display but the 27" is a little too big and expensive, is there a cheaper Apple alternative?

    Thanks

    Get the 20" ACD. I just picked one up for $175 in very good condition.

    Wow nice. Where did you get it from if you don't mind me asking? I'll see what I can do :)

    I just kept an eye on craigslist for a couple of weeks. I wasn't having much luck until I randomly decided to search "apple monitor" instead of "cinema display". I found someone that was selling an older PowerMac G4 along with an ACD. I just talked her into selling it to me separately.

    There's also several eBay sellers that have off-lease ACDs. I don't remember specifically but there was one seller in particular that had some in A+ shape and great reviews on previous ACD sales.

    Make sure the cable and power brick are in good shape before you buy. A new one isn't cheap. ;)
