This Week in Tech
podcast when Leo and the gang trumpeted Apple’s monitor lineup.
There was much grousing about the quality of other LCD monitors. Almost everyone i know has a Dell monitor because they are excellent quality and much less expensive.
Now they aren’t cheap — you get what you pay for in that respect — but they are loads less expensive than Apple’s.
We’re talking ones like
the Dell 2408WFP,
which costs $700 — hmm, it’s on sale for $600 at the moment. On TWiT they talked about other monitors that cost $200-$300. Well duh!
If you buy cheap monitors you get what you pay for.
The only story there is that Apple doesn’t sell cheap monitors.
But if you compare apples to apples, as it were, you would see that the story changes.
Nobody in their right mind would buy an overpriced, underpowered Apple monitor, plain and simple. Wow, this is almost an ad for the Dell monitor.
But hey, Iain, Jeff, John and I all have them.
So that’s a pretty resounding endorsement.
