Apple’s New Cinema Display Spans 27 Inches, Runs at a 16:9 Ratio

July 27, 2010, By Radimir Bobev

Apple’s 24″ LED Cinema Display was, for long, the best solution from the company in terms of sheer visual quality. However, today Apple have revealed the successor to the old Cinema Display, and the new one features the impressive 27 inches and a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels, which is a 16:9 ratio for those who don’t want to bother with the calculations.

However, as with the previous Cinema Display, this one will cost you dearly – look for a price of $999. While this does sound a bit too much, you can easily put it into perspective by comparing it to Dell’s U2711 which packs similar specifications and costs $1,099 – yes folks, we’re actually seeing an Apple product that costs less than what the competition offers with similar characteristics!

The monitor comes with a built-in camera (iSight of course), as well as a USB hub with three ports. There’s also a MagSafe connector in case you want to charge your MacBook close to your desk. The display is especially convenient to MacBook users because of its connectivity features and the unified ports.
