    Doing monitor search for my new macbook pro 17 inch for more screen space. found that deal for Dell at Staple clearance price. Is this deal because they are making room for a new model of the 24 inch dell (ie 09 version)? If so anyone know what will be the difference.? Is there new technology and speed difference I should know about that would cause me to want to get and spend more on a newer monitor?

    If I am going to by something new, I prefer the "latest and greatest!" (technology wise) Thanks for the help!

    Thanks for the reply matt. So if you were in my position would you buy this monitor or buy one with better, updated specs?

    I'd pick it up for that price. You won't find anything better without paying a significant amount of money above that.

    You mean even if you pay for shipping?
    Not very nice of them is it?

    Or do they ship only by mistake?

    Just talk to the sales guy at staple and he said if cannot find online then it is an in store clearance and have to go an buy at the store or order from them at the store. He would not let me order over phone even.

    I hope that helps

    I Guessed as much.

    The 2408WFP is such a good screen, its worth the $550.

    You could wait until Dell have one of there many sales, or if it pops up in refurb section.
