    ok, i have been looking around for an external monitor, however, i want to have the actual monitor vertically, instead of horizontal. now, i have a 24" iMac and was thinking 22" monitor was the key, but am not sure what monitor to buy as turning it vertical is a must..

    anyone have any idea?

    your help will be very much appreciated..

    I think this is a really good option. I just got the 24" version. Dell 2208WFP. It does pivot into portrait mode, and is currently on sale. Good luck to you. :)

    Why did you choose that over the apple 23"? Curious as I am looking for a new monitor myself.

    The ACD does not have the ability to pivot, does it? Wouldn't that pretty much rule it out, as that was the main criteria listed?

    Hey Steve. I chose the Dell because of HDCP compliance (allows me to connect PS3 and watch blu-ray's/play games), which the ACD doesn't have. I also chose it because of the price and included 3 year warranty. I paid around $640 including tax and shipping (currently free). Hope that helps in your decision. Good luck to you.
