I would like to purchase a monitor or tv to connect to my laptop for work - as well as gaming (quite often) & movies.
I am utterly lost what with all the lcd products available in the market today.

The cinema display (27 inch) coming out in september has caught my eye but I fear the response time (12 ms) and contrast ratio falls short of other LED models such as LG's 32in LED lcd tv which is also only 700-800 dollars.

Could someone give me tips or point me towards a monitor or tv that would suit my needs, or perhaps convince me why paying 1k for the cinema display is worth it?

The main pros of the apple display are that it

-charges the laptop with one cord to the wall rather than two
-is a USB/FireWire hub with built in webcam
-matches the apple aesthetic.
QUOTE Thanks
