Hi, want to buy a new monitor, usage is mainly web design. Was thinking to purchase NEC MultiSync LCD2490WUXi2 but maybe now there is something better than it?

I’m working on Windows. Price should be not more than 1500$.

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

P.S. Or should I just not bother and buy an iMac? :)

If you have a mac already you might aswell just buy an LED Apple Display. Or go for something cheaper.

I only have a White Macbook 13 inch. I don’t need any big screen I can still design/develop without one :)

why? so he can struggle with the controls for the next 2-3 months and learn to use Apple’s GUI and structure instead of working on his themes :S Win7 >> Mac “any OS version”

I’ve just went through this and I can only confirm :) But it’s not that bad as it sounds though, still love the switch, no matter what. I also have that Apple Cinema 27” and it’s great, no complains for webdesign, coding etc. But I wouldn’t buy it if I was into print/photography, that’s for sure.

Writing this from an iMac 27”, don’t get it for web design :)

Bigger is not better, if you’re specifically mostly designing for the web, since it’s too big and you either tend to do things too small when you work or make it big and see a poster size on a laptop when youre done with it :)

Best suggestion I’d make is get a good macbook pro and connect it to a 24” led cinema display. Trust me, it’s bliss :)

One thing really cool about it though:

Damn $1500? If I were you I would get 3 really nice 24” – 27” for about $500 a peice. Those would be great for designing because you’d have a lot of desktop real estate.

Only thing is you would need a graphics card that supports 3 monitors.

Or you could get just 3 decent monitors for like $1k total and spend the other $500 on the graphics card and whatever else you need. That’s what I would do – up to you :P

I promise you, anybody who takes 2-3 months to figure out how to use a Mac, their themes won’t be any good… nor will their grill cheeses.

Is their a learning curve?... yes, but once you learn it… you’ll love it and work faster because of it.
