hi, i found some discussions about displays for the mac mini but they are from 2005/2006 the mac mini (early 2009)just had a price cut, so i take the chance of getting one very cheap. currently im using with my hdtv 42 phillips, until i find a nice display for my needs. i´ve. read alot about display and i think i get a few conclusions. my budget is not very high, about $250. my questions -i dont want a cheap tn panel -i dont want 16:9 - i prefer a ips panel or e-ips or something else . - size 20" 22" or 24" - 16:10 -resolution 1920x1200 or 1920 x 1080 -response time 2ms or 5ms -brightness 250cd/m2 until 400cd/m2 - full hd - dvi - hdmi ??? -angles are not important i think.. - basically the monitor use will be for 60% web pages, 20% for games 20% movies. should i get for a used 20" apple cinema display (alluminium) on ebay ($250) should i buy new monitor witch one in the market will fit my needs -price/quality also i have apple tv and i rent some movies in itunes, and yesterday i made some comparing between itunes 3.0 and macmini has media center. the hdtv is a phillips 42 PL5604H/12 the connection use was mini -dvi-hdmi the apple tv was hdmi-hdmi the movie was "300" not full hd and some cinema trailers from itunes i try different resolutions on tv , apple tv and mac mini, and it looks like to the naked eye that apple tv has slightly advantage in picture quality. anyway i will not use the mac mini has a media center . i hope to hear your advices for the monitor( im in europe but i use us models as review,guides and prices) thanks.
