Hello. I’m thinking of buying a large display to complement my (unibody) MacBook and Mac Mini setup. Both my Macs have the newer Mini DisplayPort connectors and I’ll keep switching the display between them both routinely. Now, I know the basics—the Cinema Display is better for regular computing activities and the television is better for watching movies. My conundrum is that my daily activities are almost evenly split between the two and I love watching 1080p high definition movies just as much as I would love writing, coding, or browsing the Internet on a large screen. Both products cost about $900 and while the Cinema Display sports just a 24-inch screen, the plasma panel is of 42 inches. However, the resolution of both displays is almost similar (the only difference being that whereas the Cinema Display has a 16:10 aspect ratio, the Panasonic has 16:9). On the one hand, I can see there are several advantages of going with the Cinema Display: the built-in MagSafe connector, the sharper resolution which makes it better for day-to-day computer usage, the Apple design, Mini DisplayPort connector, and the smaller size (which might be better for the smallish room I have to live in for the next three years in my hostel). But on the other, I’m just drooling over being able to hook a giant 42-inch plasma screen to my Mac Mini and watching gorgeous 1080p high definition movies on it (I have a Drobo with 6TB of storage connected up to my Mac Mini via FireWire 800). I’m highly confused and a little bit of help would go a long way. Thanks.
