Apple® today unveiled a new 27-inch LED Cinema Display with stunning 2560 x 1440 resolution and 60 percent more screen real estate than the 24-inch LED Cinema Display. Featuring a built-in iSight® video camera, microphone and speakers, powered USB 2.0 hub, and universal MagSafe® connector, the new LED Cinema Display is an ideal companion for the MacBook® family or a Mac® desktop, and is available for US$999.
The new, larger 27-inch LED Cinema Display features a beautiful 16:9 edge-to-edge glass display on an aluminum stand with an adjustable hinge that makes tilting the display almost effortless. The LED Cinema Display has vivid colors and exceptionally high contrast and uses a premium display technology called in-plane switching (IPS) to provide a brilliant image across an ultra wide 178 degree viewing angle.
The new LED Cinema Display now includes a new ambient light sensor which automatically adjusts the display brightness based on external lighting conditions and uses only as much energy as necessary to provide an optimum viewing experience.
The new LED Cinema Display will be available in September through the Apple Online Store, Apple Retail Stores and Apple Authorized Resellers for a suggested retail price of US$999. The LED Cinema Display requires a Mac with Mini DisplayPort.
Apple announced 24-inch LED Cinema Display in October 2008, and available for sale from November 2008 with initial price of US$899. The 24-inch LED Cinema Display is now available for US$799.
The 30-inch Apple Cinema HD Display has native resolution of 2560-by-1600 pixels (16:10 ratio).
