Need (ehh, OK, rather, want) a monitor for my MacBook Pro
A nice one, please

The problem is that I am surrounded with folk with iMacs with outstanding color and I have a MacBook Pro now that I hook up to a cheapo monitor. I am jealous.

What do you recommend? Price is not a major consideration. That said, boy, prices have come down. Woo. You can get a Samsung 2433BW 24-in LCD monitor for about 250US. I think that's what they use in the Apple stores. Tilts, etc.

I'd expect apple stores to use apple cinema displays.

[store.apple.com...]
or
[store.apple.com...]

Note they both have different connectors, you might need converters to hook up either one depending on how old your MBP is. (dual link DVI connector (30") vs. mini displayport (24") )

Both are simply stunning in display quality and resolution, most apple store typically have both of them in use on their mac pro machines.

Alternatively a new 27" imac can be used as a display for your recent MBP, but there's a limit where that's still a good idea I guess.

Whoa! I didn't know about those. Really, my Apple store in the mall had a Samsung.

Much thanks.
