Apple display to ship soon
Apple has narrowed the shipping timetable for its new 24-inch Cinema Display, which should be on its way to customers in seven to 10 days. The new LCD display, announced last month with the new MacBooks, features resolution up to 1920 by 1200 pixels with a contrast ratio of 1000:1. The use of LED backlighting is claimed to offer more accurate color, energy savings, and quick transition to full brightness. The device also features an iSight camera, microphone and 2.1-channel speaker system.
Apple designed the new display for use with MacBooks, providing Mini DisplayPort, MagSafe, and USB 2.0 connections. The 24-inch LED Cinema Display is available from the Apple Store for $900.
