    Hello everyone (new to macrumors forums here),
    I'm currently using a 24"" iMac and am considering getting an additional monitor to have a dual monitor setup. I've been considering an Apple 23"" Cinema display for a while, but i'm not too sure what the quality of the cinema display is like, do they use the exact same panel of those like iMac's? or is the cinema display of a higher quality?

    Also the buyers guide has a link to an article from ThinkSecret stating that it will be replaced by a 24"" monitor soon, do you all think i should wait for it if its a plausible rumor??

    Thanks alot,
    Doomwrap

    I believe the 24" panel in the iMac is identical to the 24" Dell monitor panel. I believe the 23" (while being physically smaller) has the same resolution as the 24" screen, so you'll have the same screen real estate, but the iMac's image will be slightly larger.

    The ACD line has a better type of display then the iMacs. The coloraccuracy should be better, but you'll probably don't even notice it.

    Only the 17" iMac has a TN panel. The 24" has an S-PVA panel, like the Dell 2407WFP.
