    Well as soon as Apple releases the Rev. B. I am going to get one, but to save money I was thinking of using an old AppleVision 1710 monitor with the G5. It actually pretty nice, its built around a SONY Trinton CRT 17in, and has a max resolution of 1152-870, it uses the Apple plug scheme for connection but I can get an adapter to hook it up to VGA.
    My question is, am I better off getting a new monitor? I would be using the computer for mainly video editing and Warcraft III. A link to the monitor specs is below. http://www.theapplemuseum.com/index.php?id=tam&page=display&subpage=apple_1710&skin=dis

    I use the old 17" from my Dell computer (wich I gave away as soon as I got my first mac, a B&W G3)
    and since I have my G5 I hooked up an old 20" Apple monitor together with the Dell screen...

    I still prefer CRT over TFT for colourcorrection, but I don't have the budget to get 2 nice LaCie CRT monitors...

    so this works for me...
