    Desperately seeking a Maclike display
    My 27" iMac will be arriving soon and I intend to set it up with an additional display either side.

    What I'm looking for is a display that has a similar look and colour to the iMac display: rounded corners, glossy screen, aluminium edge, black surround.

    I'd probably settle for 3 out of the above 4 and am looking for something around the 17/18/19 inch size - widescreen or otherwise.

    Any ideas anyone?

    TIA

    No budget really - though I'll not be springing for custom made!

    Check out the Apple Cinema Display. I don't think they run with the sizes you specified (I think the smallest is 20", but don't quote me on that). Other than the Apple Cinema Display, I can't think of anything else that would match your new iMac.

    Thanks.

    I have a Cinema display already but it's a bit on the large side to go alongside a 27 iMac - never mind having 2 of them.

    I've set up my MBP with the Cinema display and a 18" widescreen Dell to get used to the three screen set up and it works great.


    Apologies for the pic. iPhone is not too good at indoor photos.

    The Dell is matt and nothing like the quality of the Apple displays.

    I'll probably have to settle for just a pair glossy displays but can't find one of those either!

    That narrows it down to one option:

    The Apple Cinema Display.
