Apple 27-inch LED Cinema Display now on sale
Apple’s new 27-inch LED Cinema Display is at last officially on sale. First unveiled in July, the monitor sports the goodies you’d expect if you’re familiar with the 27-inch iMac: a 2560-by-1440 resolution, a 178-degree viewing angle, and a built-in iSight camera.
The new LED backlit display replaces both the 24- and 30-inch models in Apple’s lineup. Other highlights of this aluminum-and-glass creature include built-in speakers and three USB ports. There’s a handy Mini DisplayPort cable to connect a MacBook, Mac Pro, or Mac mini, and even a MagSafe connector to charge your notebook.
You can order a display now for $999 at the Apple Store. Shipping time is listed at one to two weeks.
