When I first heard, I accidentally drooled on myself. When I saw, I accidentally peed in my pants. I will not disclose what bodily fluids I excreted when I finally read a review of the Apple 30” Cinema Display.
The “Thirty Inches of Glory”, as I refer to it, requires a dual link version of nVidia’s GeForge 6800 vid card since DVI can only handle the dinky resolution of 1,920 x 1,200. If that’s not getting your salivary glands pumping then imagine a desktop resolution of 2,560 x 1.600. My 12” iBook screen handles a 1,024 x 768 resolution… making the “Thirty Inches of Glory” about 2.5 times larger than my display.
The fantasy of being able to see each and every application simultaneously gives me goose bumps. And for all you die hard PC people, this baby was tested on a PC for lack of a G5 Apple machine. You heard right, the “Thirty Inches of Glory” swings both ways.
Do you know how much they’ll go for?
Apple has a price tag of 2999.00 for the 30 inch. Keep in mind that a 599.00 nVidia Ge Force 6800 Ultra DDL is also needed for this beast. that’s 3598.00 + tax, license, and CRV =)
