    Just wondering. I'm tired of hearing from "Pro's" who slander the monitor. I don't need to see EVERY pixel and their mother in 1080p!

    My Single 1.8Ghz PowerMac G5 is slow as bawls! And all I do is surf the web brotha', and catch some vibes in iTunes, and snap some pix in iPhoto.

    Sorry about all that slang, I've drank a lot of Mountain Dew Game Fuel in the past few hours. 73mg of CAFFEINE in ONE 12oz can! Pepsi only has 40-something.

    Anyway, ah!....... A.D.D kicking in!

    I want an iMac. Butt, haha.. but I want to justify the purchase!

    I'm no "pro" but I can tell you this, the 20" iMac screen stinks.

    Your signiture picture is not very forum friendly.

    the 20" is technically and perceptively inferior to the iMac 24", which in turn is (aparently) perceptively inferior to the cinema displays.

    But I suggest you visit an Apple store and judge for yourself if you can live with it or not. Many do.

    No bumps. You're in New York, aren't there like 3 Apple Stores there? Go look at them and decide for yourself. The specs on the ACD's are superior to the iMacs, but all that really matters is how it looks to YOU.

    It's not as high quality.

    It's perfectly fine for what you described your usage for.
