Hi,

I'm considering buying a new cinema display from Apple. Should I go buy a 23" display, or spend a little more for dual 20" displays.What setup would be best?

Thanks for your help

Dual 20" it will have a lot more realestate. :)

What kind of Mac do you have?

I'v got a hi-def tv, but as i live in the uk its pretty useless at the moment, because hi-def broadcasting starts in 2006. Whats the quality increase between the normal 20"s and the 23" in hi-def? Is it significant?

It depends on what you are looking at. Have you ever seen HDTV. :D
