    The ACD is LED, the 24" iMac doesn't have the LED option, is there much difference? Has anyone seen them both side by side?

    I'm hoping the iMac screen is as good or almost as good as the LED....

    I like the iMac display more than the LED but that's my opinion. :)

    Isnt the 24" iMac Screen a TF Panel, where as the 24 ACD is an S-IPS?

    The 24" is an H-IPS, so has better colour reproduction + an LED display.

    ACD>iMac.

    I thought the iMac had a IPS panel on it also?

    Hi,
    For what it's worth, according to the gizmodo review of the iMac 2009, there's not a lot of difference between the two displays -- the author states that he reviewed them side by side and found them essentially identical.
