The Apple’s 27 inch display is nice if you’re okay with the glossy screen and one thousand dollars is within budget. If not, check out the NEC Multisync 22 inch P221W-BK at about $450. It’s less than half the price and designed for graphics and photography use. It may not be as beautiful on your desk but the P221W does the job. The next size up is the 24 inch P241W for around $750. I tried the 22 inch P221 attached to my MacBook Pro and the display is nice. Both the P221 and P241 have an optional colorimeter for calibration. There are certainly higher quality displays out there (see us for recommendations) but these are good choices for the budget conscious. MacLab is an NEC reseller.
