I have a Dell XPS 9100 i7, ect right now with a dell 24" 2408. I think W7 is cool, but I can't capture viceo from my HD camcorder via the firewire which is very frustrating. I have spent more then an hour on the phone with Dell and MS about this issue. Change this setting and that one..... Still does not work. As others have noted, I was looking very hard at a 21.5" refurb. I do have a 24" LCD now, hmm the 27" kept on calling my name. I found a "pretty good deal" on ebay for the following: 27" iMac w/ i7. 8gb ram 1tb hd ATI Radeon 4850 HD with 512MB Apple care till March 2013 Bing cashback 8% and buy now pay later $100 credit from paypal, made it a pretty good deal at under $1800. The seller still has the original box and will put that into another box. So say a prayer for me that UPS does not drop it. Someone is already coming to pickup my 2408 LCD today. I'll put the tower on CL this weekend. I just need to get a 6 to 9 pin adaptor or cable for my HD camcorder. Will any work? TIA! PS I bought the wife a 32gb iPad wi-fi last week. I'm not sure who likes it better, she or our 7 yr old daughter.
