While Apple's own flat-panel displays are beautiful, savvy shoppers already know that they can save hundreds of dollars by buying a Dell, which uses the same LCD, but doesn't come housed in a case that's quite as attractive. I'm staring at ginourmous Dell display right now, as a matter of fact, and I paid a pittance for it as compared to what I would have spent on a comparable Apple monitor. But if having a black-encased monitor sitting next to your beautiful aluminum or white Apple computer bothers you, you might want to be on the look out for the new BenQ 19-inch LCD, which is tailor made for Mac mini owners. For the record, my Dell flat-panels sit next to my Cube, which is housed in a shiny, black custom -made aluminum enclosure, so it actually matches pretty well.
Hardmac has the scoop... the display not only addresses your aestethic concerns, but takes space usage into account by having designed it so that a Mac mini can sit comfortably on the display's base platform. Cable management has also been taken into account. I'm still trying to track down the rest of the specs, but BenQ displays tend to be of high quality and very affordable. This new one is expected to hit the streets at about $450.
