    Definitely get the Dell, I read on the some other threads that Dell's use like the same panels as the Apple Cinema Display. (I need someone to confirm this for me :)) But other than that, Dell makes great monitors.

    Don't get either of the two displays you mentioned - they both have the lower-quality "TN" type panels.

    Get a good display with a higher-quality panel in it. Two I can think of are the Dell Ultrasharp 2408wfp or the HP 2475.

    As it happens, the Dell is on sale RIGHT NOW until July 8th for $395 delivered. Check here:

    Look into the Dell's. Like mentioned, Gateways are junk usually and that particular Dell is not the best either. I am a Samsung fan as well and bought one but make sure it will work with your Mac. I cannot get mine to work with my Mac Mini, only my PC and so far from what I am reading, the Samsung monitors and very few Dells do not work with mac or the mini at least. :rolleyes: Not sure why but all I do know is I will sell my Mac Mini and just keep using PC if that is the case (unfortunately). Good luck on whatever you choose!
