I have been hearing hype for so long now about a 30" cinema display. Is this just another rumor? As the owner of dual 23" cinema hd displays, I'm very interested in this ;) I heard awhile ago that supposedly Apple was going to release the new monitor with a brushed metal finish to match the G5s? Anyone?
To answer my own question, they were released today! Brushed metal as expected. My poor 23" aqua style monitors aren't top-of-the-line anymore ;) But whoa, a $1,000 price difference between the 23" and the 30"!
I think a big reason why Apple postponed their release is because, if you check out apple.com, you'll notice they specifically recommend the Nvidia Geforce 6800 card for the 30" - going so far as to saying it's the only card that will support the monitor! However, this is Nvidia's new line which isn't even released yet ;) Only available from Apple right now, actually!
