Thread: new IMAC screen

  1. #1

    Default new IMAC screen

    I just saw the newer IMACs and I thought that they were REALLY terrible.

    What is with the ultra-reflective screen? I see reflections of every thing behind me in the indoor shop at funan.

    I was thinking of replacing my 2.6 years IMAC G5 and now I dunno what to get.... IMAC mini with dell 24" ...

    Is the new screen contrast or whatever better? Surely they must have a reason for that ultra-reflective coating.....

    Yeah, I do agree, if you're going to place the iMac under a strong light source.

    It is supposed to be built for the major consumer market, where the trend now is towards glossy screen, and it apparently shows better colour saturation than a matte one.

    There's no iMac mini, but a Mac Mini la. The 24" dell with a Mac mini sounds like a good idea to me....
