OK...so is it possible to hook up the new display to my 17" 2.33 C2Duo laptop?
I know its an Apple no no but...
I realise its a new connector but someone must have an adapter...or is it more of an issue than that

even it there is an adaptor i don't think you will be able to use the camera and speakers on it

I should read things better.

I don't think the video and camera will matter, they should be standard shouldn't they?

Found some OS forum talk on the issue and it seems there are issues with the difference between LCD drivers and current screen drivers

The other big issue is the gloss vs matte issue....which is huge for most graphic designers and photographers etc.

I edit photos on my clients new 24" iMac and must say that reflections aren't an issue...BUT he has a nice dark office/studio and I hate the dark.
