Oh god.

:eek:

Its happened.

:eek:


Please no.

:eek:

I've been telling myself that i would buy a big monitor when the price drops, ether a Dell or an Apple.

This way i can resist spending lots of £££ as i am saving to pay the bills that go with moving house, when mine sells.

But now the price has dropped.

£670 for the 24" model.

My resistence is crumbling.

Its not long now.

That is absolutely incredible value :eek: :cool: Already got a 2005FPW though, and I can't see the RevA iMacs FX5200 (w/ hack) powering the on board 20" screen + one of these bad boys :(

Suppose i could ask her if we could try for a baby, that should take her mind off it.

Actually, babys are quict pricey arn't they?

Is this an offer or permanent?

I really want (see want, not need) a 2005FPW, but the timing is all wrong - I want a new guitar next month and its about the same price!

I appears to be part of the Dell LCD sale that ends 24/8 I believe.

I've just put an order in for mine! :-s

Now i need to move my desk over as the Dell is so big it won't fit on properly.

Also will need to set up my speakers on my Sony amp.

The thought of playing WOW in widescreen...drool...

EDdesighUK, did you get a DVI cable with your monitor?

Think i may have to buy one.
Whilst I'm not e I can report that I got a DVI cable with my 2005FPW (and a standard VGA cable and a USB A-B cable for the hub iirc).

Check the packing list (or whatever it's called) before you call them! Maybe they've cut back on the cables to make the lower price points...
