    I need to purchase a mac pro very soon and I have some questions about the apple displays.

    Do you prefer two 24' apple screens or one 30' screen?

    I have noticed that the 24' led displays have very short cords and are not suitable for most mac pro desk setups. Does anyone know how long the 30' display cords are?

    Is there going to be an update for apple displays soon? perhaps some displays more catered for mac pro's.

    Not sure about the cord length on the 30, but my 23" is enough to keep it a good distance away.

    Keep in mind that if you want to run dual 24" apple screens, you are going to have to get a second video card. These displays only have the mini display port in and each card only has one port.

    The 30" ACD cord is about 5' to 6' long

    Yeah the 30" ACD's cable is about 2m long. It can be extended up to 0.5m beyond that but anything more and you can get noise.

    I doubt they'll be releasing an updated 30" any time soon. A 30" LED display would cost Apple twice as much as they sell the current one for just for the panel.
