    At this time I am using a Dell 30" flat panel display. I really enjoy
    the amount of real estate it provides, but the drawback is the fact
    that as with most flat panels, there is very little color or vibrancy.

    Enter the new iMacs. The screens on these babies are gorgeous!
    Nice glossy screen that gives vibrant and colorful output that's
    reminiscent of the old CRT monitors.

    So my question is this....

    I haven't had a good look at the Apple flat panel Cinema HD
    displays, but are these the same type of glossy vibrant screens
    that are used in iMacs?

    I use two 30" ACD's. Previously I was using two 21" 2040U's. I think that color and vibrancy is MUCH better on these LCD's than it was on those CRT's.

    Go to an Apple Store if you can, and look at the ACD's in action...decide for yourself.

    Want to trade the newest speced 23" ACD and an ergotron arm for your 30" Dell? I would love the real-estate over the colors and look of the display.

    +1 and thank god for that.

    The ACDs aren't designed to be vibrant. They're designed to be accurate and consistent. If you use a hardware calibration aid (I use Spyder2) you will get excellent color that doesn't vary between edges and corners.
