"The first display made precisely for a MacBook. Introducing the 24-inch LED Cinema Display. It doesn't just expand the screen of your new MacBook, MacBook Pro, or MacBook Air. With a built-in iSight camera, mic, and speakers, it expands your whole experience."
The final item Apple discussed at their big announcement event was a new LED-backlit Cinema Display. For the first time ever, Apple has designed a display specifically for their notebook line. The new 24" model has connectors for the Mini DisplayPort, Magsafe power adapter, and USB port (to connect the camera on the top bezel and the 3-port USB hub inside). While Apple has caught a lot of grief over recent years for not having a proper docking station for their laptops, this does seem like an interesting compromise. The new Cinema Display has a resolution of 1920 x 1200 and will be available in November for $899.
