Today Apple announced the newest addition to the Cinema Display Family. The new 27-inch model offers 60 percent more screen space than the 24-inch version with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 resolution. It has a 16:9 aspect ratio and a 178° viewing angle. Additionally, the 27-inch Cinema Display has an ambient light sensor which will automatically adjust the screen’s brightness based on the lighting conditions in the room.
“With built-in MagSafe charging, iSight camera, speakers, and USB ports, the LED Cinema Display is ideal for MacBook and MacBook Pro users,”said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. “With its massive 2560 x 1440 resolution, the new 27-inch LED Cinema Display is a perfect fit with our powerful new Mac Pro, and it gives iMac users an easy way to double their screen real estate.”
The new 27-inch LED Cinema Display will cost $999 when it becomes available in September, and requires a Mac with Mini DisplayPort connection.
