I'm considering buying a 20" display and as much as I like Apple monitors my budget isn't going to allow me to get both a new G5 AND a 20" Apple display. So the subject line says it all....the Formac seems to blow Apple away in every catagory and it cost about $400 less....money that'll be well spent on ram.
Thanx.....
Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

I own the gallery 2010 (old version) and am very happy with it. If you look at the performance of this baby it was a real bargain. I have looked extensively at LCDs before making the purchase, and I have not seen one competitor that offers the same picture quality. Of course you can always argue about design, but for me the most important feature was the TFT. And here the Formac is second to none. To bad they are not in any retail store for people to see ...
