24" gets mini DisplayPort
During Apple's notebook event today, the company launched a new 24-inch Apple LED Cinema Display, arriving in November and featuring a new mini-DisplayPort connection to attach to the latest MacBooks. The new display, rated at 1920x1200 pixels with 16.7 million colors, is styled in a similar fashion to the current line of iMacs, with a black border and minimal metallic edging around a glass-fronted glossy screen. It features an iSight camera and microphone built in with stereo speakers, all of which are fed through a single cable.
LED backlighting is used for truer color and energy savings; this, the aluminum and glass render the display mercury-free.
The new display also features USB connectivity, with a built-in 3-port USB 2.0 hub, and adds a MagSafe power connector. It has a Kensington cable lock for security and meets the latest ENERGY STAR requirements. The new display ships in November for $900 from the online Apple Store.
