The Apple Cinema Display was introduced by Apple as their flagship flat-panel computer monitor that was initially introduced in September 1999.
The display was constructed to match the unibody laptops including MacBook Pro and MacBook Air initially released in October 2008.
When the latest 27″ model was announced, the 24″ and 30″ models were scrapped. The 27″ supports a resolution up to 2560 x 1440 pixels making it one of the highest resolution displays in the market.
Apple claims that, “The LED Cinema Display looks great from any seat in the house, thanks to a premium display technology called in-plane switching (IPS). IPS gives you a bright picture with excellent color consistency — even if you’re viewing the display from the side.”
