    well, considering the LCD itself is made by LG Phillips, the same company that manufacture Dell's Ultrasharp (and possible many other brands), then yes. Dell Ultrasharps comes pretty close (if not exactly the same) to Apple's quality.

    They aren't exactly the same, just use the same major component (the panel). Apple's offer better colour, dell's are better priced and have more features. The only real reason for a consumer to choose the Apple ones is if you prefer how they look.

    apple displays are very nice, but very hard to justify the extra cash when similar panels are half as much. at that point you might as well buy a professional-grade LCD with pre-calibrated color and all that shit

    at this point, i'd just wait for the new apple displays to come out

    they should be out within a few months (but no one really knows)

    then just drop the cash, i'm sure they will be teh hotness :eek3:

    Yep, they are faster refresh.

    It's the same panel, how can the Apple have better color?!
