    I think this is the right sub-forum for this, but I thought I would share an idea about the next cinema displays.

    With the release of Leopard and much of its features, I think one of the biggest improvements apple has been working on is Time Machine. Maybe the next cinema displays will have an internal HDD inside them for backing up data with Time Machine. Anyone ever think of this? I think this would actually be something apple could do, since they can fit HDD's in imacs which are like 2" thick.

    That would be useful. A Display and a Backup Drive combined seems like a good idea!

    Sounds like a good idea. As does the simple idea of actually updating the Cinema Displays!! :)

    It's been so long since they were meaningfully refreshed and they really need built in iSight... I've also been thinking a redesign/launch in October would be the perfect way to showcase Leopard. Just a helpful hint :apple:! ;)

    Lol, that works too.

    Apple could name it, Apple Cinema Display: Now with Time Machine support. That would be sick. :D

    Apple definitely should do that, since they stopped production of the external iSight.

    That's a cool idea - but it would be pricy
    I don't really think it would happen though as many unimformed wouldn't see a purpose and buy something cheaper. Apple probably wouldn't want the thickness to stay the same or go thicker either.
    But if it came out I sure would buy one!:D

    In front of my MacBook Pro
    Hmm, they could fit a 2.5" in there I bet... maybe a few of those in a raid configuration would be nice. As well they could have the non-HD cinema displays (heh, a pun).
