Survey: Apple vs Dell Display Showdown

Survey: Apple vs Dell Display Showdown

Well, well. Looks like Apple decided to finally update their Cinema line, eh? Dell doesn't seem too impressed. Heck, they're probably laughing about how it took Apple 3 years to add an integrated webcam into their displays while they were able to eat up all the marketshare with their display lines. So, now that they're finally on the same page, we thought we'd open it up to our readers and see what they thought.

Personally, we have always been found of Apple displays because of their excellent color reproduction and less "yellows" found on traditional (and even higher end) Dell displays. Because of this, we find the value of the Apple displays to be a bit higher despite the common complaints of them being 'overpriced' and lacking ports.

Of course, if you're a heavy user and require multiple inputs into your monitor, the Dell should be your best bet because of the number of ports made available and lower price tag. The last on the list is how well the monitor matches with your decor, and in our opinion, Apple still wins in this category. The glossy bezel may have created instant haters for those comfortable with the aluminum finishes, but it still beats the plastic frames found on nearly all Dell monitors any day.

Your takes?
