    Hello Everyone,

    First post so be gentle. :D

    Anyway, I have been given the task to research standard (non-widescreen) monitor choices for a Quad-Core Mac Pro our non-profit organization is going to purchase. The requirements are as follows:

    1.) MUST BE STANDARD (non-widescreen). I have no choice in this matter, so please no debates about which is better or why I want standard vs widescreen.

    2.) Size - 20-22 inch.

    3.) Panel type monitor.

    4.) Prefer monitor without built in speakers. Also, no need for a camera.

    5.) Price? Well, I'm open. This computer/monitor will be used to help develop apps for business needs... Mostly non-graphical in nature. No need for a mega-pixel/high price monitor that graphic artist might use...

    Suggestions?

    Any help will be greatly appreciated :)

    Go to newegg.com And select: Computer Hardware > Monitors > LCD Monitors > Widescreen : No

    That wil get your search started. There seem to be a few displays that for what you're looking for. Don't forget to check the resolution of the displays as well.

    I can think of a bunch of reasons as to why this might be required, including fitting in/on existing furniture. Another is to see what applications you develop look like on it. I am curious as to why you need a non-widescreen.

    Is there any issues I should be aware of using a non-apple stardard display monitor with a Mac Pro? Any specific connections I should require on this new monitor?

    Just need DVI, which all of them should do. And depending on the graphics cards in the Mac Pro, you may need a Mini DisplayPort to DVI Adapter.

    I use NEC MultiSync LCD 2190UXi's at work x 3. They're pretty decent, and nice and square :)
