I just sold my black 2006 Macbook (and got a very good price for it) in order to buy a 20" iMac (2.4GHz 2007 refurb), since I very rarely used it as a portable device, but used it as a desktop with a 24" Gateway monitor (beautiful monitor even if it is a TN panel). Now I have the iMac and have it all set up, but I am beginning to think that I should have spent the extra money for the 24". I have the 24" Alu iMac at work, but had come to the conclusion that a 24" screen is simply too big for my home use. Now I am not so sure. Tonight I hooked up the 24" Gateway as an extended desktop just to make sure that the iMac worked correctly, and the Gateway display looked so much better than the iMac that I felt kind of sick (brighter, more vivid colors, more saturated colors, better viewing from an angle, etc). And yes, I did try calibrating both displays. If I called up Apple do you think they would make me pay a restock fee to exchange it, since it is a refurb to start with? Somebody at an Apple store once told me that restock fees do not apply to refurbs, since Apple already got the restock fee on the original return. I may have to wait until the 24" 2.4GHz comes back into stock, so there also might be a delay. Sorry, I know nobody can make up my mind but myself, but I just needed to express myself.
