Apple Drops LCD Prices

10 Comments

Excellent! And why not a shiny new Apple LCD to go with that 8 core beast?

Apple dropped their prices across the board on their beautiful (allbeit overpriced) LCD line. The breakdown:

30″ Cinema HD Display dropped to $1799 ($200 price cut).
23″ Cinema HD Display dropped to $899 ($100 price cut).
20″ Cinema HD Display dropped to $599 ($100 price cut).

Might also point out that the Special Deals section has 30″ Displays for $1499 and 20″ Displays for $499. They’re still a bit more expensive than the rest of the industry, but that’s Apple, right?

My guess is that new models, with iSight cameras built-in, are on the way.

Ah, the uk 20″ is now £398.99…took a while to update I guess.

It’s probably got something to do with the fact that the manufacturing yield of larger LCD screens is getting more efficient which drives prices down generally, and the fact that Dell/NEC are improving their output quality somewhat (which was questionable in the past).

Isn’t this just because LEDs might be showing up soon?

OK, let me eat my words. I see that Dell’s award winning 30″ display is now down at $1499…

To quote Rosanne Rosannadanna: “Nevermind…”

Chris Williams

At this point, doesn’t the $1799 for the 30″ pretty much make it competitive with everyone else? Last I checked this is around what Dell, NEC, and others wanted for their 30″ LCDs.

Mind you, if the choice is between this monitor or a month’s rent, I understand it isn’t “cheap”… but is it still “overpriced” at this point?

Lee Webb

Never mind that….why is the 20″ still £529 in the uk when in the states it’s $599?
