The new UltraSharp 2005FPW is a departure from previous Dell widescreen LCDs, which were generally integrated TV models, and going directly after the competition like Apple’s 20″ Cinema Display panel. Of course, at a pricepoint of $799, the Dell 2005FPW could take a chunk out of Apple’s market –since the newest version of the Apple 20″ display prices out at $1299. The difference between the displays is small, and likely has more to do with panel technologies and pricing drops than anything else."</i><br /><br /><img src="http://www.digitalmediathoughts.com/images/dell-ultrasharp-2005fpw.jpg" /> <br /><br />This certainly looks like a drool-worthy monitor from Dell! A 20" widescreen would be rather large, and with a 1680x1050 resolution and 16ms response time, this monitor would be awesome for gaming and DVD playback. That price point is killer as well!

More than anything, the price looks amazing. And the 17" Dell monitor is selling for as low as $249. Damn these are good prices.

Yes, that price is amazing. I paid $799 for my Apple 17" LCD Display back in early 2002 (regular price was $999). Now, I can get a 20" widescreen with a much higher resolution for the same price. Heck, I could buy myself another LCD 17" LCD for $249 and have dual 17" LCDs for the price of Apple's 20" LCD.

Wow, I'm happy. Now only if I had some money... :)
