Apple "Although Apple's machines are more expensive than PCs, one Wall Street researcher says the price of a Mac isn't that much more than a comparable Windows-based computer. Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster said that his research shows an average price difference of only 13 percent for desktops and 10 percent for laptops, once you factor in the same components that Apple uses." Run, Forrest, run!

Especially considering that Apple's 20" Cinemadisplay is _exactly_ the same as the Dell 2005fpw. The only difference is that Apple's costs 100%+ more.

I remember reading this comparison before. It said the Dell one was nicer for having multiple inputs and picture-in-picture. I'm with them on that part. But they also said the Apple display looked a little washed out, but they were comparing them side-by-side on a Windows machine, which Dell's would obviously be tuned for. It also came out later, though I can't remember where, that the Dell monitor had less consistent backlighting. But yes, the panel itself is exactly the same part number from exactly the same company.
