Good Options for External Displays

I am setting up a new office - going to setup either a MBP or a Mac Mini with external display(s). For the external displays I am thinking either:
(2) LG 23" LCD Displays - 2 ms response time; 50,000:1 contrast ratio; 300 nits; 1920 x 1080 maximum resolution; DVI-D, HDMI and 15-pin D-sub inputs
2 x $230 = $460
Apple 24" Cinema Display - $899
What do you all see as the pros and cons?

just curious what you are going to use to run 2-displays off a MBP?
I am using a Dell 23" Widescreen with a built in web cam. It also has HDMI input and USB hub built in. Like it alot.

And like mentioned above...you can normally (or natively) only run 1 external monitor with a MacBook Pro or a Mac-Mini.
But if you're willing to spend an extra $139-$170 bucks...here is a possible solution:
Firelight: Mac mini dual monitors using DualHead2Go - Firefall Pro, LLC
One problem with this product is it seems to "split" the video signal. Here's a quote from one of the links:
"Use desktop stretched across two displays at up to 2560 x 1024* (dual 1280 x 1024)"
In the article linked above...the person is using 2 x 17" monitors...so this may not be a good solution for someone trying to use 2 x 23"-24" monitors
Hope this helps,
