    can anyone suggest a large screen monitor (21 or 24') to use with my mac pro 15' for editing photo's? I am a photographer..i looked at Imac - looks great but glossy screen and i read not best for photo editing for this reason and color calibration...tks!

    Any ISP display will do just fine... Apple Cinema Display, NEC, Dell. I'm a big fan of NEC displays for professional photo work.

    Cheers!

    I guess you mean MacBook Pro's...?

    But yes; I use 3x 24" displays in both my MacPro and MacBook Pro. Two of them are new NECs - they are great and calibrate perfectly.

    I personally don't have a 30" Apple CInema Display - but my colleagues who do love it. I'd love one, but (IMO) I think it's way overdue for an update.

    cheers!

    He has a 15 foot Mac Pro :confused:, so he must have some money.

    thanks...just read of reviews of the cinema screens and many happy users, but some people complained of the high gloss and reflections when using them...which i noticed when looking at the imac screens. will review all the suggestions from replies as this an expensive purchase for the 15 foot version.
