Choosing a Display: Dell or Apple?

Apple vs. Dell The battle lines are drawn. Swissmiss recently asked her readers which display should she buy, an Apple or a Dell? The ensuing debate reminded us of the ongoing question when it comes to choosing a LCD display. Do we go with design or cost?

And what about quality? The answers given to swissmiss' query were varied and grouped themselves into two camps: the diehard Apple fans, and the pragmatic Dell low cost/same features camp. We ride the fence, our Apple display was bought refurbed to save some cash. Because yes, one can have both style and save money. This 2006 CNet head-to-head declared Apple the winner after putting both through an onslaught of tests. Where do you stand in the debate?
