Ahhhh but the dell display does not have firewire ports ;)
Yeah, ~$500 extra for two Firewire ports that the tower sitting under your desk probably already has.

On a serious note now I want one but how can I justify it? hmmmm
If you can get the 25% off coupon code, it's worth it. For something like this, it's an amazing deal. If not, you'd be better off waiting - the prices are bound to go down.

UPDATE: Yet another code: $50 off $450 code WMP04MKN92KZ09 [Exp 11/25, 11:59pm CST, 1500 uses]. This is also stackable with the 25%.
So, $799 - 25% - $50 = $549. Goodness.

That's two 2005FPWs for the price of one Apple Display with some spare cash leftover (for a Firewire expansion card, maybe =P). Ridiculous.

Get a friend to buy it for you in the U.S. then

...although I'm not sure how much the shipping costs would be.

Extortionate, and that's not to mention the import tax.


Can't say I like the design of the display, however I do have a free DVI port.... oooh.

I like the design - it's simple and professional...very business-like.
It would look a little odd paired with a PowerMac G4 tower though.

im staying off dell monitors now...
had about 3 crts which treated me well... then i got a 1800fp 18" tft from dell
failed on me after 6 months and 2 days before a major hand in date for an assignment
good thing it was from my workplace which isnt too far away and i got a 19" ctx instead which is great

Sorta true, but the tower resides on the floor, I don't care what it looks like, it's there to crunch bits and bytes for me, not look pretty :p do have to stare at the display though :D

Just for reference, $559 is roughly £290, and the 2005FPW costs £600+ in the UK :(

Well if I get this job in GA for Aflac I will be buying it, I desperately need a new monitor (as well as other pc things), but for $550 with coupons, you can't beat it.

Good call. Just did some splitting/merging magic. :D Seems fine now.
