From the Manufacturer
Feast your eyes on more than four million pixels in the first high-resolution 30-inch flat panel display designed for the personal computer. The Apple Cinema Display line features a gorgeous new anodized aluminum enclosure to complement the Power Mac G5 or PowerBook G4.
See the Forest and the Trees
The 77% increase in screen real estate of the 30-inch Cinema HD Display gives you the space you need to visualize your entire creation yet provides the resolution necessary to edit in place. So you can lay out a two-page spread and edit text without squinting. Or work with a Photoshop document with room for more than 30 layers in a palette. Take in the whole timeline in Final Cut Pro HD, with audio controls. Display an unheard of 126 Logic mixer controls simultaneously. Or peer into four different modes of a molecule visualization with subatomic detail. Add this colossal advancement in innovation to your well-equipped Power Mac G5 for a very reasonable price.
Eliminate Tunnel Vision
The widescreen design of the Apple Cinema Display line offers a natural format for arranging documents the way your brain processes themlonger wide than high. That's why each display gives you the best view for your work. It just makes sense to be able to display a Web page and its code next to each other horizontally, or long video timelines in wide format. Apple engineers find that the nearly 100-pixel per inch resolution is ideal for images, yet allows you to easily work with sophisticated type treatments or just plain email. This painstaking attention to detail moves the industry forward and gives you best LCD technology available.
Enjoy One or Two Artful Displays
The Apple Cinema display matches the sculpted aluminum enclosures of the Power Mac G5 and PowerBook. This strong, anodized aluminum also allows for an exceptionally narrow bezel, so you can use multiple displays together seamlessly. The Cinema Display hovers above your desk on a curvaceous stand, and hardly requires any pressure to adjust the viewing angle from -5 to 25 degrees, since the enclosure is the lightest Apple display ever, at each size. And some ineffable quality of pure elemental aluminum just feels better to the touch.
Connect with Pure Digital DVI
Give your PowerBook G4 a second display when you're not on the road. Connect directly to any PowerBook G4 with a DVI port. The DVI connection removes all barriers to using an Apple display with a PC, if your graphics card supports DVI with DDC technology for widescreen viewing.

Adjust your Apple display from -5° to 25° with little effort.
The smooth motion hinge on your Apple display requires very little pressure to tilt the monitor to a different position. This design allows you to you view the display at whatever angle works for your environment, anywhere from -5° to 25°.
When you need to manipulate color in any media, image distortion is simply not an option. Analog conversion problems caused by a VGA connection become progressively worse as you move to monitors that have higher resolutions or longer monitor cables. These issues fade away with an all digital signal. DVI transmits a distortion-free digital signal from a digital location in the graphics card to a digital location on the display’s screen. This digital connection gives you the full clarity and stability of liquid crystal technology — with sharp, clear pixels from edge to edge.
Pixel response time provides a good measure of a display’s performance in media critical applications, such as video, 3D and motion graphics, or even when you’re taking a break with a game. An Apple display provides fast pixel response time across the entire spectrum from black and white, to every shade of gray.
