    24" Aluminium imac?
    I can't stand glossy screens but really want a 24" aluminium imac!

    Has anyone ever though of removing the glass front abd replacing it with just a bezel, i.e. just the outer black part of the glass front with out the glass?

    This way you'd leave the matte screen exposed but still have a bevel around the outside!

    If you get my drift!

    Any thoughts?

    If you want an aluminum 24' iMac, then buy it. Removing the glass and messing with the frame or bezel will very likely void the warranty. If you want a 24" matte large screen display, there are plenty to choose from. Buy an aluminum MBP and an external 24" matte monitor and you're in business.

    Regards.

    My glossy screen on my 24" imac is sweet as a nut!
    I wouldn't ever dream of doing that.

    You probably don't need a colour calibrated screen for image editing then!

    Easy answer is to add a separate monitor via the mini-DVI port in the back. I have two monitors and you can add any monitor, so make your second the size you want and the make you want but make sure your connector is DVI.

    I do not know if the second monitor can be calibrated accurately though. Do some research here. I have my iMac screen tilted to the side slightly so as not to look at it straight on and have long ago forgot about the glossy look.

    turn the brightness to the middle level and calibrate the monitor.

    Unless your working for Coca-cola or Nike I think you'll be good to go

    I haven't had a problem with the 24" imac my employee has been using. And we run 2 large format and one grand format printer and I'm not even going to get into my color management routine.

    And I do work for Coca-Cola and Nike

    The screen is glossy too, not just the glass.
