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 The device is outdated in several respects, lacking an LED backlight, modern contrast levels or a Mini DisplayPort connection.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.
