Earlier today, Apple introduced a new desktop monitor called the LED Cinema Display that features 27-inch diagonal, 2560 x 1440 resolution, 178-degree viewing angles, built-in iSight web camera with speakers and microphone, USB 2.0 hub and a MagSafe connector. Apple recommends it to MacBook and iMac users who can connect the laptop to the larger display when needed.
This new monitor has a glass display and a lightweight aluminum stand featuring adjustable hinge for easy tilting to the best position. In addition, it uses an ambient light sensor for adjusting the display brightness depending on the lighting conditions.
Apple launched the 27-inch LED Cinema Display at a starting price of $999 and will make it available for purchase in September at the Apple Store.
