    Dell u2311 since it has IPS Technology. IPS is worth it in my opinion.

    I'd go with the dell as well. IPS is a definite plus :D

    What exactly will I benefit with IPS? Btw, the Dell one has the slowest reaction time of them all though (8 ms) - is that perceptible at all?

    IPS (InterPlaneSwitching) and PVA panels hold their color and brightness at odd viewing angles. TN panels do not so brightness and color change depending on the viewing angle. For example your MBP is a TN panel. I believe TN panels are better for fast response time like gaming, at least they used to be better.

    I also find the IPS panels to be a lot easier on my eyes while viewing. That of course with all of the things that vantage point said

    very good price for a IPS banner. I'm left thinking what's the catch?
    This any good for Design? I currently have the 2007WFP which is excellent but would like something a little bigger.

    No catch, Dell has a good good policy as far as bad pixels goes also

    But the Dell monitor I've shown in the above link has an 8ms pixel response rate - isn't that below today's standard and also not too good for gaming?

    You don't need IPS unless you need color accuracy for photography, etc. TN is fine for gamers and regular computer users.
