It would seem that the new 24" LED display is primarily for laptops, or the newest desktops with a "mini display port".
Even this adapter does not look like it will work with a G5 (a male-female connector issue):

I know that this is off the topic...but do you really want to spend $899 on a 24" monitor...when you can get something similar (non-LED) for $200?
