    they seem to have an ADC/dvi adaptor but I am not sure of the differences in signal and what not..

    if anyone knows if this can be done.. please let me know

    not that I can afford it currently but it would be lovely to have something like that :)

    the guy @ the apple store said it might be possible but he could not comment since I was asking about an apple product with a non-apple product...

    I'm surprised.

    meh... I will never buy a mac (well not anytime soon anyways)

    I hate proprietary crap and I hate false advertising even more...

    I will however love to take a g5 case and mod it to fit an ATX board inside and get the apple cinema display though :D

    THAT I can live with... the software and proprietary crap.. no thanks...

    Well, if you bought the adapter device and used mac emulation software...it might be possible?

    yah but the software support is non-existent :(

    if it was pure plug n play I would have no probs...

    anyways. I have been browsing a few forums... might consider getting the baby once I get a proper job post uni and the costs drop to 1g and lower :D

    Hooray for thread resurrections, aside from obtaining the 20" display for myself since first posting here.. I also have some pointless information:
    This information may be outdated due to the launch of the #LM230W02 from LG.Philips which may now be in the current 23" models.

    Hooray for pointless information :p :D
