    Did that make you feel better? It's a shame that people have to put others down to build themselves up. It's one of those things that you see so much, but cant help but wonder why people do it. You're better than that-you don't need to do that stuff.

    I didn't see anything wrong with that answer. I think today many people are too lazy and want someone else to do their work and break it down for them. Before I buy something or basically anything I do research myself and if I can't find the answer I then ask others. We see it here. There are thousands of threads on the same subject like--what will the new Macs have, this is my prediction, when will they release them, ect.. All people have to do is a simple search and poof they got their answer instead of bogging the board down with another thread.

    I see your point, but I also see the other side.

    I did read it, why else would I be asking for somebody else's help? I couldn't figure it out and I'm asking if somebody else can help me out on this...other than model number and the physical look, I can't see any, but if there is none, then why are there two models?:confused:

    to be more precise on "they are the same" by this, I mean specs, their specs are the same, only difference is their looks and pricing, why?

    A simple comparison of the specs will show you that the X223Wbd has:

    1) a 2500:1 contrast ratio (vs. 700:1)

    2) WSXGA+ display type (vs. WSXGA)

    3) Has DVI (vs. DVI-D)

    4) better power consumption

    5) Apparently no Kensington Lock, unlike the other one

    6) Different dimensions

    7) one more pound of weight

    All I did was read the two links you posted, so I don't feel sorry for you that you had to take some criticism on this thread.

    I must have clicked the same link twice when I compare them by accident because I read the same specs for both...now it makes more sense... :X
