    I wish they would get the 23" down to 1,000 student discount to compete with the 2405 dell and I would buy one in a heardbeat. Even the 20" is hard to swallow when the dell version is still 1/2" the price.

    goddamn... lol i knew they would do it, but I just couldn't wait the month or so... I would have much rather paid an extra 150 or so instead of my dell 2005fpw

    i hate to say it but that 23" still isnt competing with the 2405. though the casing looks better, the dell is just as sharp and a better bang for the buck

    :dunno: its a start though. Maybe apple will finally realize that most people buy displays depending on if they can get a low price, and they will make the cd's price competitive with dell and such.

    Well, that definitely makes the Apple look like a ripoff. I assume Dell can get away with it because of the amount of products they sell in general compared to Apple, but still...

    I mean, the LCD screen has the same freakin' part number!

    I've read, and heard here, that the Dells ship more often with a couple dead pixels. Does Apple let their monitors go with dead pixels?

    Dell won't let you return yours unless it has 6 or more. No clue on Apple's policy if someone wants to chime in.

    EDIT:

    I only bring it up because the obvious price difference might be in quality control.

    I think the price difference is in the economies of scale.

    No, bigger sizes.

    And dell has inferior optics compared to apple.

    Do Dell LCDs come with built-in USB and FireWire ports? I noticed that the 20" ACD that someone at work bought came with 2 USB 2.0 and 2 FireWire 400 ports.

    If they don't, then IMO, that explains the price difference. :dunno:

    I would like to point out that Dell has had quality control problems. The Apple is all digital while the Dell is not. Also the Dell has a cooling vent to disapate heat letting dust in, Eventualily this can cause problems. Can you afford to keep replacing the monitor, I cannot. I will stick with Apple and the quality it buys.
