Hi,

I am very eager to get a 23" display to go with my PowerBook, but am afraid that prices get revised. I think I can wait a little longer, so my questions are:

a) How likely will Apple update the specs or revise the prices of Apple Cinema Displays before/during WWDC 2006?

b) Will Cinema Displays continue to match the MacBook and Mac Pro series?

Any comments?

Best Regards,
Vic

I would bet Apple up dates the ACD at WWDC 2006, with price drop and a built in iSight, and brighter screen(perhaps a Glossy Option?)

I think there's a good chance of Apple releasing some thinner, brighter ACDs with some price drops at WWDC 2006. I'm guessing the resolution would stay roughly the same though as its kind of a "standard" at these screen sizes.

I'm thinking a thinner design with built-in iSight. I can't wait to see the revisions. Hopefully, they will come to us by WWDC '06.

Why wouldn't it work? Or are you meaning "would be practical"?
Wouldn't it be a bit...high up :p .

The iSight would have to be a bit moveable to work on a 30", I'd think...:confused:

They should really drop the price, at least a bit. Compare the 24" Dell with the 23" ACD. I wouldn´t be really sure about paying more just for the ACD´s superior design.

Not really, the iSights aren't aimed straight forward in current laptop models either. It'd just have to be pointed slight more downwards and it would be just as (in)convenient to adjust the screen tilt as for the laptops.

Yeah, exactly, you could easily end up doing the same thing on a laptop with the built-in iSight.

With OS 10.5 set to include Resolution Scaling (resolution independence),
which won't make much of a difference on 100ppi displays, don't you think Apple will up the resolution to 150ppi or so?

200ppi LCDs like the ViewSonic VP2290b still cost $7000 - $8000, so that seems out of the question, but has anyone heard anything about a bump up in resolution - every ACD so far is or has been about 100ppi.
