    Hey everyone. I have a iMac 20" right now. And I really want to get a 2nd monitor for it. I LOVE Apple's 30" ones they have in the Apple Store/apple.com but they are way to $ and I am sure I can get something just as good for a whole lot cheaper. Can anyone recommend a good Monitor that would be good for Photoshop and just all-around-good in general.
    I am looking to spend as little as possible, but I don't want junk either.

    I see you said Dell, I thought I would check around eBay. Would this be a good buy?

    The one in the ad looks like a widescreen but the picture he took of it looks like a full screen :dunno:

    Maybe I should just go to best buy and check them out eh? .. Can I use ANY monitor with an iMac? I Just would have to get a convert for VGA to the thing Mac uses right? DVI I think it's called.

    you want a monitor with DVI input, your imac probably has mini dvi so you will need an adapter for that.
