Is perfect, and beautiful. It puts my 17" Powerbook's screen to absolute shame. I went to my local Mac store to buy a MacBook Pro, but after seeing the Samsung paneled display model and it's lower third of warmness (yellow), I got scared and figured I'd just wait for the 17" to eventually get the LED screen and upgrade come Leopard. So a new monitor maybe will make my computer seem new enough for the time being. I didn't notice much difference in brightness between the 17" and the 15" MacBook Pro's... and could only see a slight upgrade in smoothness on the LED model. They both looked great. I got the 23incher home and was like "wow, it's so big!"... and not 10 minutes later I was thinking "maybe I should have gotten the bigger one..." Ha! I just really don't know how anyone would want to place a plastic nasty Dell in front of them and stare at it everyday if you could sit and stare at sleekly bent aluminum with such subtle and sexy lines. I feel lucky to have something so nice.
