For some reason I love paring the 24" LED ACD with the 17" uMbp instead of Mac Pro

    Do you dual screen with it or leave the MBP in clamshell mode?

    I love the look of it, I don't have a 17" currently just the 13" but will be upgrading to a 15" once the refresh comes out. Not even a year old 13" down the drain hahaha.

    But I LOVE dual screening.

    I too am waiting for a new update. 15" all the way! Your picture makes me want a LED display :p

    What are you going to be doing with your current MBP?

    Thats the thing though, I have dual screen with the mac pro but for some reason I love using the mbp connected to the cinema display more.

    I think its my amazement of how fast laptops are these days connected to a big monitor. :D

    I guess I remember when only desktops got most of the job done connected to a blocky 15" CRT monitor at back in the day.

    Technology came a long way!

    I had mine 17 connected to a 19 display.
    with the 15 that I also have it is not as nice as with 17.

    While with the 15 you need two external monitors to be happy (I dont know if connecting two is possible), with the 17, you need only one.


    I feel the same.

    Nice! But the 13 would be way too small for my work. But really nice to see apple cin display with macbook pro :)

    I agree as well. While the 17" is smaller than the 24" display, both displays are showing 1920x1200. =)

    I absolutely love my ACD haha, got it in the refurb store too, could swore it was BRAND NEW haha.

    But my current MacBook, is up on CL. Poor little guy, its been a fun year hahahha.

    I got both of them from Nissans website a few months ago. Take a look at their GTR section and you should find them, if not PM me and I will send you both of the HI-Res files.

    Same here except I'm using an 06 C2D 17" MBP with the old ACD 23" a Griffin Curv2 Elevator and the USB Apple keyboad (gotta have a number pad!) had that setup for years and just love it but lately I was thinking about gettin a smaller laptop which will definitely be a friendlier travel companion....

    I have a 15" 08 MBP that I sometimes take with me when traveling. Depends on what I'm doing while on the road. It does come handy in confined spaces, but the screen real estate of the 17" MBP is just really great.

    And I totally agree with you regarding the number pad!

    I'm actually in the process of decommissioning my 1st gen Mac Pro and replacing it with my 13" uMBP, connected to an LED ACD, of course. Much easier to deal with a single computer that I can take to and from work. I'd love seriously think about moving up to at least a 15", maybe a 17" when the new ones are released. My less than 1 year old 13" would then get retired as well...
