Hi all,

New to the forum, but not to the Mac world. Was drug into the Mac world Kicking and screaming and am now a mac disciple...anyway. I am curently running a G4 sawtooth, a G4 powerbook and am doing mostly professional audio editing, but getting into video to expand the biz. A mac pro is in the near future (i.e. when the wife OK's it) and I'm contemplating on monitors. I've pretty much decided on two standard computer monitors vs. a 26" LCD TV for Pro Tools editing, but I need to know what are the best monitors for compatibility with the Mac Pro. I know the Cinema displays are great, but I'm a Business Professional for Best Buy and can get some killer discounts on standard and widescreen monitors. If I go non-mac i'm looking at the Gateway FPD-1975 that has looked nice on the shelf and looking at doing two of them. Any and all comments/criticisms welcome.

Howie J.

Unfortunately, we don't sell apple.....YET. See the post in the rumors section and dell is online only. The only dell that was released in a retail store was last holiday at a costco in CA somewhere. Thanks for the input everyone.
