I have heard the 20 inch has a better picture. Is this true?
Perhaps dual 20 inch displays would be better than 1 23 for graphics work?

Man, those are HUGE monitors. Have you ever seen one in person?

I would go with a 23". Plenty of space. Not sure about the quality issue you bring up, but they sure do look nice at the stores.

haha, then there's me just trying to decide when I get my G5 early next year if I want to go with a 17" or move up to a 20" haha. 23" I think would be waaaay to huge for me

i would go with a 23. You wouldnt have as much space as 2 20's, but i think its easier to keep track of one screen

All the time. They're not that big.
Right now I am running 2 19" CRT Viewsonics with my Windoze box.

Does anyone know if they displays vary in refresh rate or dot pitch between the 20 and 23?

I actually dual monitors a lot better, but I am not sure how OSX handles them. I know it seems like a lot to keep track of, but much like having sex w/ two women - I'm sure you'll manage JUuuuuuust fine.
