I am in the market for a new LCD monitor to replace my 15" CRT. I currently don't have a Mac but will be getting an iBook soon. I am not just waiting for the updates, I'm also waiting for more money. I was looking at the Westinghouse 17" widescreen LCD. Does anybody have this monitor? Do you like it? Have you had any problems with it? Thanks for the info.

One word: Dell


I love the Dell 2005FPW. And for under $400 for a 20" wide screen, it can't be beat.

I prefer to own an Apple LCD Display. It may cost a little more, but represents quality. If you purchase it with the iBook, then it can be covered with AppleCare also.

Thanks for the info guys. I am not really sure whether to get the Dell or the Westinghouse. The Dell looks awesome, so I might lean towards that. Thanks again!

The Dell monitor uses the same panel as the Apple monitor and its way cheaper. So, I'd recommend the Dell as well. In this case, you can't beat it!

Generally the best LCD's for the money

are the Dell 20", Apple 20", Dell 24" Apple 30" in order of affordability.

The Dell 24" uses Samsung LCD where
both the 20" models use Philips.
