Dude, I might as well spend $300 more and get a fucking computer along with my display.

I go all cross eyes looking at my 20" monitor sitting on my desk in front of me already, I can't imagine staring at a 27" unless it was 5' away. Yikes. I think there IS a point when a computer monitor is TOO big :lol: For me at least.

While I love the shit out of my 27", for just a display, the $300 Hanns-G 28" that a few of us have now off of Newegg is definitely the way to go for just a monitor.

^well, its also the pretty apple logo
Let's see, the 27" monitor costs $999, and the cheapest 27" iMac is $1699. So for $700 you're getting a Core i3 computer with a 1TB drive, 4GB of RAM, and an ATI HD5670. Sure, you can get a Windows PC cheaper, but $700 for a computer isn't outrageous, unless you're extraordinarily cheap.

Yeah, the iMacs are expensive, but they're not completely out there.

Justin just likes to take constant pot shots at Apple, and this was yet another opportunity. ;)
I see where he is coming from. I'd like to get a MacBook Pro for school, but the prices are painful, and both refurbished models I was interested in disappeared before I could scrape the funds together.

They're expensive, yes. This isn't news, so I don't see the point in carrying on about it in every thread.

How do you complain about connectors on a monitor that's bigger than your desk :lol:
