    Hello

    Which display(20 inch Cinema display or new 24 inch Led display) would be recommended for use for the new MBP for graphic design/3D work and sometimes games?
    I have read that some people do not like the gloss screens of the new MBP so wondering if that carries over to the new Led display too.

    The new LED is glossy. Get either, but the 20" is dead tech walking.

    The 20" is still fine isn't it?
    How badly does a gloss screen interfere with actual work and viewing?

    Let's see... 14ms response time, that's only four times the current industry average; 700:1 contrast ratio, that only sucks...

    And glossy is up to the end-user to decide. It's your call.

    Those specs are typical for IPS panels. Please don't compare IPS with 2ms 999999:1 TN crap.

    The 20 inch is pretty good as I just grabbed one used myself as I don't care for glossy and my desk is small.

    If you do have the new macbook though (as its a requirement) i'd pick up the new display just because. I'm all for matching.
