Does this look like a 30" Cinema to you?

    Guy on craigslist is selling this. He's quite a drive away from me. He says it's a 30" but it sure does look like a 23" to me.

    Nope. I have a 20" iMac and used to have the keyboard in that picture, the keyboard was just as wide as the screen.

    See, he just gave me some dimensions of it and they were accurate. I wonder if it's because the keyboard is much closer than the Cinema.

    What kind of dimensions? Anybody can just Google "30" apple display dimensions" and find everything there is to know about the size/shape of the display. I'd try to get another picture from him, ask him to hold a ruler up to it or move the keyboard closer or something.

    Could just be the camera angle that makes it look smaller though.

    Why would he lie about the size, just to get you out there? I've had people lie to me about the condition of a car etc. but to lie about what you are selling doesn't make any sense to me. This is craigslist though, and it does look like a 23" in that photo. :hs:

    It's not that I think he would lie to me, I just think he's not very smart.

    I'd ask for a picture with a ruler, that doesn't seem to look like a 30"

    I have a 23 and the same keyboard and you are right that the the picture definitely looks like a 23 and not a 30

    Those speakers appear to be the ones in the link below, in which case, they are 14.4" tall if that helps.

    If it is a 30", are you getting a good deal on it?

    Not bad. I just picked mine up for $700 about a month ago. So did the sale ever pan out well?
