    I am considering purchasing a 24" Apple Cinema Display to use with my MBP to replace my 24" Dell mainly so I can get the built-in iSight & speakers. When I went to BB to check it out I noticed I could feel warm air venting out of the bottom of the ACD onto my hands while I was using the keyboard. I'm thinking this might be a bit annoying in regular use. Has anyone else noticed this? Is it because they probably have the brightness cranked all the way up? Comments?

    Yes, I notice this with mine as well, but only if the brightness is cranked up, the room is very warm, and I sit very close to the display (so that the hands are almost underneath it. It also depends on whether the MacBook is charging or not I believe.

    Anyway, it's not much of a concern for me, since I notice it only very rarely and even then it is not annoying.

    I keep my brightness at around half, maybe a little more, and I've never noticed fans.

    My hands are around 20-25 inches from the screen and I usually have the brightness set to half plus 1-2 dots and I have never felt the warm air on my hands.

    I am very happy with the ADC monitor -- haven't ever noticed any heat issues.

    I sit at a desk with the monitor about 10 cm from my hands and can honestly say I have never felt the fans.
