    Im looking at this 23" A1082 cinema display and rolling the price tag around in my head.
    Im assuming this will actually sell for closer to $300.00 plus $50.00 in shipping.
    Im just wondering if its worth it to spend this kind of money on an older, used, and non-LED backlit monitor.
    For $200.00 I could get a brand new full HD 24" LED monitor. But Im such a sucker for cinema displays. Even old ones.
    I'll be using it with my new 15" macbook pro and doing lots of video editing in Final Cut Pro and most importantly colour correcting with apple's Color. Also some sound design in Soundtrack pro.
    is there a better option that Im overlooking?
    thanks for any input.

    If color is important to you then you shouldn't be looking at used monitors.
