$1299 for a 20 inch flat panel display, or $1999 for the Cinema HD Display (formerly $3500). If only I were less responsible with money. I'm a little surprised the new machines are "bluetooth ready" instead of just including it. The Bluetooth module for a "bluetooth ready" machine costs just as much as the usb bluetooth adapter. I also don't understand why iLife isn't out yet.

Played more Vice City last night. I love that game. I finished the biker and Love Fist missions, completed the strip club asset (I'd looked up the assets in a FAQ after getting the protection one- I wouldn't have thought of the strip club thing on my own) and completed the ice cream asset. 44% done.

Not that I have the money to throw around but...

Can those lovely Apple screens can be used on a PC?

Yes, but not easily. They use a proprietary Apple connector (ADC) which handles power, USB and a digital video signal.

I think that if you had a PC with a video card that has a DVI output then you could get an ADC/DVI adapter and probably make it work.

That's a big part of why I won't be buying one for myself anytime soon. I currently have a Mac at home that has an ADC port on it but I'm currently using it with a VGA KVM so that I can have my PC (from work) and my Mac share a monitor/keyboard setup. A lot of PC flat panel displays have both VGA and DVI inputs so they'd work better for a situation like mine.

(I just looked at the specs and it looks like my Cube wouldn't work with the 20" Cinema Display. Another excuse not to buy it.)
