20-in. Cinema Display gone
Apple is dropping production of the 20-inch Cinema Display, an announcement reveals. The company has notified its sales and service links that the product is officially "end of life," and will no longer be shipped to customers or retail stores. The monitor has also been removed from Apple's online storefront, and given no automatic order conversions for anyone who may have ordered the product earlier.
It is also believed that the 30-inch Cinema Display may soon disappear, mainly due to expired delivery dates at retailers like Ingram Micro UK. The model can still be ordered however, and it is now the only official Apple display that can be connected to current Mac minis and Pros. The new 24-inch Cinema Display (pictured) is equipped only with Mini DisplayPort input, mainly due to its association with the latest unibody MacBooks. A revised 30-inch monitor may be forthcoming, but will likely have to wait for updated Minis and Pros.
