Hey all, I am getting a new Mac Pro, but I just noticed that Apple doesn't sell 23'' monitors any more, only the huge 27''. I really like the setup I have now with my old Mac Pro, two 23'' cinema displays, so I thought I would try to continue on something like that. So, what do you guys suggest as good 23'' monitors for a new Mac Pro? Transferring my old 23's is not an option.

I use NEC 24" PA241W-BK-SV that I love. It comes with the Spectraview software and puck. http://www.necdispla...rs/pa241w-bk-sv
You couldn't go wrong with almost any monitor that uses IPS technology today. For other high end brands you could look at LaCie and for a very reasonable price you could pick up a Dell U2410.

Although the apple website only has the 27 inch on their website I have seen smaller in the apple retail store and best buy store here in Dallas, TX. Best Buy has some 21.5" on their website.

Thanks all, I think I will get the Dell 2410, good reviews and the same resolution as my old 23'' Cinemas, it's really silly that apple only makes huge 27'' displays now.
