"While the elegance and substance of our displays are incomparable, our prices are affordable. What use is the most marvelous product in the world if nobody can afford to own it? CinemaView displays are made to perfectly complement any Apple system, whether a Mac Pro tower, a frequently moved MacBook, Macbook Pro, or MacBook Air or a Mac mini."
Collins America is doing a very smart thing here. There are many of us that are looking for an Apple Cinema Display, but aren't willing to shell out the insane amount of money they're asking for them. The $899 tag on the 24" Cinema Display, in my opinion, is ludicrous despite how great it looks on the shelf. Collins America is going to be releasing a 19" model at $299, a 21" model at $399 and a 24" model at $499. Quite reasonable if the quality matches up to what Apple is offering.
They don't feature the integrated MagSafe of Apple's 24" beauty, but they do have integrated USB and a MiniDP connector so no adapters are going to be needed. In other words, they're designed for Macs from the beginning. I know it's silly to reserve a monitor sight unseen, but I may just do that with these. Anyone else?
