Having upgraded from a 20" let me first tell you how pleased I am. Im Pleased... I upgraded primarily on the merit of needing the 8800 GS, so I took advantage of the Education discount and free nano (I have a son in 3rd Grade that counts right *wink*) It came a day early from Fed Ex which was a nice bonus. I read all the threads about the scren issues and was a little concerned that I would have backlight issues (Im not a major whine ass about a dead pixel or two). I fired her up after setting it up and used my Time Machine backup. this is the first time I have used the feature and it was freaking painless... SO much better than my PC experiences with backups(I was a big Ghost proponent). I took the advice of others and calibrated my screen using super Cal, it now looks dazzling. Absolutely ZERO screen issues. No dead /stuck pixels, and the backlight uniformity is better than any display I have ever owen. even better than my Dell 2405fpw that I currently use on my Gaming rig. Bottom line is the 24" display apple uses on these is simply stunning in quality. I love glossy and this tickles my twine immensely. All in all this is a wonderful machine that feels fast, smooth and efficient. Along side it sits the new (RED) Nano that my wife will enjoy. Cant say enough about it... anyone considering a 24" just stop reading and go freaking order one. You will NOT be dissappointed in any way. I have no unboxing pics, but rather fully set up pics. I had to shoo my wife away from her WoW session quickly while I snapped them off... enjoy!
