Older Apple monitors to disappear

With the introduction of the new 27-inch Cinema Display, Apple is phasing out older 24- and 30-inch screens. The recent 24-inch model, notably, has been reduced in price to $799. The monitor was previously priced at $899, just $100 less than the 27-inch option, which ships in September.

Unchanged in cost is the 30-inch Cinema HD Display, set at $1,799. The device is outdated in several respects, lacking an LED backlight, modern contrast levels or a Mini DisplayPort connection. Once current stock is sold out, both the 24- and 30-inch screens will no longer be available.

    30"

    What they should say about the 30" is that it "lacks" a screen with glare, a proprietary connection, and a trendy aspect ration that robs you of 160 vertical pixels (a perfect place to store a menubar and a dock that you can't get rid of.)

    I LOVE my 30" and nothing about this smaller display excites me. My monitor has a great anti-glare matte look to it - I can plug it into a standard DVI plug (yes I know I need dual lane graphics for full res but it WORKS still on single lane) and I can view high def content full screen and have room underneath for mac's dock and above for the menu. OK, it doesn't have a built in isight - but it does have 2 firewire 400s on the back - hey I can hook up my old iSight external camera to it ;)

    yet another great product lost to innovation!
