Both are quite similar. Looking for an external monitor for my Macbook Pro. Do quite a bit of photoshop, and would like accurate colour. The Apple is LCD, and the Dell is CCFL, but I thought i read that the CCFL was better colour, but then somewhere else said the LCD was better colour Glossy vs Matte, not had any issues with my macbook pro glossy display, but may be changing location of monitor, which could interact with light from a window. I have seen quite a few pros use the apple LCD displays, but would the Dell be better for colour accuracy. Also, the thing i DO NOT like about the apple (despite looking beautiful) is that the height cant be adjusted. I had my old monitor right to the desk so it lined up with my MacbookPro. I was almost certainly going to go with the Dell until i read that LCD had better colours. Now confused PS anyone else know any high-end high-res 24"< monitors?
