I'm in the market for a 30" display to use with my mac pro I'm also going to get soon. The main use of this display will be for editing photos on Photoshop. The Dell 30" is $600 cheaper, has a better contrast ratio (1000:1 versus 700:1) and nice media card reader port on the side (can be used with compact flash?). I'd prefer to have an Apple brand display, but I'm not sure I can justify the extra $600 for a display that is inferior in technology, and about to be replaced. But a friend told me that the Apple quality is better than the Dell's, so that's a consideration. Any advice here? Also, anyone have any educated guesses on what the new display will have, and what the price will be?
