Big Picture
Apple has unveiled a new family of widescreen, flat-panel displays. The new displays include 20-, 23-, and 30-inch Apple Cinema HD displays. All of the displays feature dual FireWire and dual USB 2.0 ports built into the display, and use a standard DVI interface for a pure digital connection to Apple Power Mac and PowerBook systems. In addition, the displays feature an all-new aluminum design with a very thin bezel, suspended by an aluminum stand with an adjustable hinge to make for effortless tilting of the display.

The 30-inch Cinema Display has a professional-quality, wide-format active-matrix LCD with 2500 x 1600-pixel resolution. It requires a high-performance NVIDIA GeForce 6800 Ultra DDL graphics card as well as a Power Mac G5 professional desktop. The 20- and 23-inch Cinema Displays are designed to work with DVI-equipped Power Macs, Powerbooks, and Windows-based computers.

Prices: $1299 (20-inch), $1999 (23-inch), and $3299 (30-inch). All sizes were expected to be available by August. (Apple: www.apple.com)
