My 24" LED Cinema display went dark yesterday. With a flashlight, I can still see the video on the screen, so it is pretty clearly a burned-out backlight or whatever it is that illuminates these things. Since it was discontinued in 2010, it has gotten over four years of good use. I used it a lot. So... What to do, what to do. Any guesses on the cost to repair? I am madly in love with the iMac retina, but if its display burns out in four years, that screws whoever owns the computer then (four years is my record for keeping a computer, the 2009 13" MBP which I upgraded last year with the 13" MBP retina w/ 16GB RAM, so it might not still be mine). Side question: what happens with all the iMacs today? Do their displays burnout? Any third party displays with retina-like sharpness? I don't relish spending the money on a new computer given I just bought this laptop Nov 2013. If I did buy the iMac retina, I would probably sell my MBP and get the new 12" MBA for my sitting around computer. Any possibility Apple has a retina display in the offing? Time frame? I really need a larger display than 13" (although I am enjoying the retina.... The irony was not lost on me that I waited for retina on my laptop and hardly ever use it as just a laptop) so I will need to decide on something soon. Thank you for your input!
