    Hey everyone,

    just thought I would let ya all know that after recently buying the new 2.93 MBP 15' I've also added the 24 inch LED Apple screen.

    It was expensive but there is no other monitor on the market that looks this good!

    Excellent picture, no dead pixels, or standby noise.

    Would deffo recommend!

    Congrats on your acquisition! It sure is expensive but the Apple 24" LED is tailor made for the new generation MacBooks! No need for adapters, integrated iSight, very sleek etc... I sure would want one :D

    Like to see a new 30 inch. I am running the current 30 and be nice to have a new one without this DVI adapter and the direct power cord to the laptop from the monitor.

    I got one my self for my 2.53 MBP 15" and love it, totally amazing ... now just need to save some more money to get an SSD drive... maybe recession will help with them coming down in price (wishful thinking)

    Congrats. I want one but can't justify having a third computer screen sitting on this desk.

    Post pics of it. :p

    I thought about gettting one but they are just too expensive.

    My standard 22" Westinghouse monitor is fine

    Can you run the 15" MBP with the 24" led display and have an external keyboard and mouse plugged into the display and keep the MBP closed at the same time? Could the mouse be a bluetooth device?

    Thanks,

    Dee

    Hey everyone

    I'll post pics tomorrow when I get back to the UK.

    The set up is brilliant. one thing that would be good would be for Apple to create a docking system. One that connects my ESATA card etc in one click.

    would love to get one but anyone know how to connect two monitors to the MBP and even whether it is possible? I know the Mac Pro has two display port outputs but the MBP only has one. I have tried devices that allow multiple output but this only gives me an mirror image and not the extended feature i am looking for

    i believe it is not possible to have two separate displays. I've heard of a company that makes a device called matrox but it only mirrors it.

    Whilst I was looking for a built in esata card I came across a card that plugs into the port that my Esata plugs into ( I foget what its called, something like Express card?) And it had a separate connector for a monitor. Not sure if it would just monitor what you had on display. I'm not sure where it was that I sought it but my esata card is made by AKE.

    Anyone thats interested, the card works fine with my Esata 500GB Quadra drive.

    Apple screens are bright and have vivid colours, but the overall quality is far behind the professional screens. I have Sun Microsystems v4 24.1 LCD in my office, that thing is nice, and the price is about the same as Apple.

    With Calibration the 24" LED display is awesome. I love mine with the MBP but also great with the new Mac Pro's. I would also love to see a new 30" ACD!

    That is no good. :(

    It's a common issue with all the 2008 2.53GHz 15" MacBook Pro. I suggest to go back to the apple store and tell them. You might probably get one of the speed bumped MacBook Pro 2009.

    Thats good info. I have not thought of that. Although I have tried various esata bus cards none of them have proved anywhere near reliable. I have since got several firewire 800 drives, very stable and can be daisy chained.
