    I found a good deal on a 30" ACD for $850 and was thinking of buying it. My concern is that Apple will release new ACDs with the next Mac Pros in a few months. These new (but merely theoretical) ACDs could have such killer features as HDCP support and HDMI. What do you think? Is it a bad time to buy?

    That's about half off...so even if they come out with new ones, you'd be saving a lot. You could probably resell it, and buy a new one if you wanted.

    Unless you really need the saving, in my opinion, yes, a bad time.

    Here.

    Then again, buy as many as you can, use one and sell them on for a profit!

    If you think HDCP support and HDMI are killer features, then yes, probably better to wait to see if new ACDs are announced at MWSF, and if so, whether or not they have those features.

    It is hardly ever a bad time to buy a 30" ACD for that price! New 30 inchers may even see an increase in cost due to LED backlighting.

    It's a good buy, if it suits your requirements. I'm holding out for a revision though, because Blu Ray in the Mac Pros could in turn bring HDCP to the ACDs, and more inputs.

    But a 30" ACD is nothing to sniff at, at that price.
