Apple set to finally refresh 30-inch Cinema Display?

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Apple, Displays, Rumors

Apple 30-inch cinema display

If you’ve been waiting to pick up a new 30-inch Apple Cinema Display, but were waiting until Apple released an LED-backlit version, there may be hope for you yet. Now, we don’t want to get your hopes up too much, but from the looks of things, the 30-inch Cinema Display have been pushed back. Typically, they would ship within 24 hours, but as of today, it is showing a 5-7 business day wait. Historically, when there is a large and sudden shipping delay like that, we’ve seen a product refresh follow soon thereafter. Now that Apple has worked out the 27-inch iMac LED display issues, maybe it’s finally time that the 30-inch display gets update (or replaced with a standalone LED-backlit 27-inch Cinema Display.)

NEC MultiSync EA109M standard-aspect LCD monitors

Posted by Mark Rollins Categories: Displays

NEC MultiSync EA109M

looks to be trying to squeeze every last penny out of the non-16:9 monitor marketplace with the MultiSync EA109M.  It has 1280 x 1024 resolution, five millisecond response time, 4-way ergonomic stand, 900:1 contrast ratio, and black bezel finish. We know, completely underwhelming. What’s worse, though, is they are pricing it at $259, ensuring that no one but out-of-date government agencies and schools will be purchasing them.

Unibody MacBook Pro 15-inch finally gets matte display option

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Apple, Design, PC / Laptop

MacBook Pro 15 inch matte option

When launched the MacBook Pros, one of the loudest cries we heard from the Mac community was in relation to the loss of the matte display option. You see, while Apple touted colors that “pop” a bit more off of the glossy screen, those of us who like to be, you know, mobile with our notebook computers, cried foul. The problem with a glossy-only option (or lack of option, really) is that if you are using your MacBook Pro in the sun, you essentially have a screen that can double as a mirror.

Well, Apple has heard those cries, and has finally brought a matte screen option to the 15-inch MacBook Pro, something that the 17-inch unibody version has had since the get-go. It’ll cost you an extra $50 for the privilege, and you also lose the black “borderless” infinity bezel around the screen, and instead get a silver bezel like previous versions of the MacBook Pro.

Dell's New Monitors: E2010H, E2210H, and ST2310

is no stranger to the display business, which may explain why they have launched three new models, seemingly without letting anyone know about them.  The 22-inch E2210H and 20-inch E2010H are $199 and $139, respectfully.  The E2210H has a full HD resolution, while the E2010H sports 1600 x 900 pixels.  The other is the ST2310 (pictured) which is a widescreen with full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution, as well as DVI/VGA/HDMI inputs plus a 50,000:1 contrast ratio with a price point of $229.

Mimo 710-S portable and flippable monitor

Posted by Mark Rollins Categories: Displays, Peripherals, USB

MIMO 710-SI don’t know what it is about the Mimo 710-S, but I just have to like it.  Maybe it’s because I could use a little portable flip-shut monitor for my laptop, even if it is 7-inches with 800x480 resolution.  Maybe it is because it attaches to my laptop easily via USB.  Actually, I think I like pretty much everything about the Mimo 710-S, except the price, which is $140.

EVGA InterView Dual Monitor System

Posted by Mark Rollins Categories: Displays, Peripherals

EVGA InterView Monitor

Some of you probably work with two monitor screens, but what if you simply bought one monitor that was two monitors?  I suppose this was the inspiration for EVGA’s InterView, which has two monitors that can swivel.  (You can see from the photo that one is turned 180 degrees.)

Each one has a resolution of 1440x900, and are 17-inch at the diagonal.  The stand itself has 4 ports, a built-in webcam, as well as an input for a microphone.  There is also a DMS video connection. 

Like it?  So do I.  Be prepared to pay a pretty penny’s worth of $649 for it, though.

MIU HDPC Multi-Functional

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Cell Phones, GPS, Music, PC / Laptop

MIU HDPC

You have to admire the looks of the redesigned MIU HDPC. With a 4.1-inch TFT screen (800 x 480) and a 2.4-inch AMOLED display (320 x 240,) we are talking major functional. Partially powered by Intel Atom, its screen can slide, flip and tilt. Use it for computer chores, as a cell phone, play music, or navigate with it. Rumor has it that the Korean gadget will be available for about $500.00. Contact MIU for more details and availability.

Apple introduces LED Cinema Display: 24-inch, $899

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Apple, PC / Laptop, Peripherals

Apple LED Cinema Display

After many years of remaining stagnant, finally gave their Cinema Display line a nice redesign. The new 24” LED Cinema Display looks similar to what you’d find in an iMac. Aluminum casing, black bezel along the front, LED backlit, built-in MagSafe connector, and a built-in iSight camera with microphone. That last one is something we’ve been waiting for, for far too long. Unfortunately, not everything is all fun and games with the new Cinema Display, as it appears that - at least for the time being - these new Cinema Displays are only compatible with the new MacBook, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Air that were announced today, which all incorporate the DisplayPort. There is currently no way to connect a Mac Pro, iMac, or older notebook to one of these. Let’s hope this gets remedied quickly.

You can pick up the new 24-inch LED Cinema Display in November for $899.
