“ Apple Studio Display 17 - LCD display - TFT - 17" - 1280 x 1024 - 200 cd/m2 - 350:1 - white „
The first computer I owned that was mine & mine alone was an Apple Cube - it was old & slow, but one thing I really loved about it was the display. It was beautifully designed (like the Cube) and did it's job like a dream (unlike the Cube). 17 inches may seem a little small in today's world of dual screen monsters, but this display was designed for creative professionals, so resolution is more important than size. It displays everything beautifully, but the screen shape may be a little square for those of us used to a more rectangular display.
Unfortunately, I never really got to test out any high end graphics programs due to the low power of the Cube & the connector was specially designed for the Cube so I couldn't connect it to a more modern computer without buying a pretty pricey adaptor. I guess this lack of compatibility is the major killer in this deal. However, the price is pretty low compared to competitors - I picked mine up for ~£100, but that was a few years ago.
With a large virtual workspace and superior image quality, the 17-inch Apple Studio Display is an outstanding display for creative professionals who demand exceptional performance in an elegant, slim design.
The Apple Studio Display takes full advantage of the digital output of the Power Mac G4 system to deliver distortion-free images from edge to edge all the time. No adjustments are ever needed.

color fidelity even when viewing off-axis. Video artists will enjoy the ultrafast pixel response when working in Final Cut Pro, iMovie, or iDVD. No matter what the task, the Apple Studio Display is the superior display solution for the demanding creative professional.
The Apple Studio Display gives you just what you're looking for - stunningly sharp text and graphics, and a workspace large enough to display your ideas to perfection.
