    Question 20" ACD or 23" ACD; that is the question.
    Okay,
    So i have had my MacBook for about half of a year now, and i think i getting close to ready to buy a new Apple Cinema Display. The main reason is that i do a lot of work in Photoshop and i could use the extra screen "real estate".

    All i need to decide is if i should get the 20" or 23" screen. I am leaning towards the 23" for the size, but the 20" price is much more in my budget.

    My question is; is the extra three inches of space going to make a big difference in the amount of screen i have to use? And is it worth the extra three hundred dollars?

    And on another note, do you think that they are going to do a re-design any time soon?

    As I have said in another post, I hear people wishing they had a larger screen, never heard of anyone wishing they had a smaller screen on a desktop.

    If you are looking to stay in budget, and don't have to just have Apple white, I would suggest considering the Dell 24" widscreen WUXGA. Don't know that I could bring myself to buying a Dell computer, but they do make some nice screens. It is currently on sale at $609. Has composite, s-video, component, vga and dvi connections. Is a great price for a nice monitor with the ability of connecting multiple devices. This screen has not been the editor's pick in it's size for the last 3 years or so in almost every PC magazine and site without reason.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    I second the vote for the 24" Dell. That's exactly my setup now -- Macbook to 2407WFP. Much cheaper than the Apple displays, with way more features (USB hub, card reader, multiple inputs, PiP, etc etc), and still quite beautiful (aluminum & black).
