People need to stop comparing the panel on this to the Dell Ultrasharp, the Dell Ultrasharp is miles ahead, and the professions that use Macs, choose the Dell.

How is the panel miles ahead?

I believe the Dell Ultrasharp and iMac/Cinema Display use the same 27" panel, so really the only difference between the 2 panels are matte and glossy, which I prefer glossy over matte any day.

Oh scratch that, just noticed the panel used in the Dell Ultrasharp has a higher color support and lower response time. Meh, I don't care as I'm getting a great deal on a ACD anyways and I really don't like Dell so much. Now if someone else like Acer made a 27" with the same specs, then I'd probably get it, but sadly they don't.

$1700 for the 27"

I'd pay that.

How can it be miles ahead when it's the same panel, just with a glossy treatment?

Honestly, at many times Macs can be over-priced, but this is definitely worth the money if you don't care much for expansion and want an awesome display.

27" 2560x1440 IPS Display: $1000
Core i5 2400: $190
Radeon HD 6970M (HD 6850): $170
4GB RAM: $40
1TB 7200RPM HDD: $60
Casing: $100
Power Supply (whatever model this uses): $60-80
Motherboard: $100
Bluetooth+Wireless: $20
DVD+RW Drive (Slot-loading): $30
Peripherals: $100
OS: $100 (just for the sake of putting a price on it; the $30 DVD available is for upgraders)
Total: $1990
Price Apple wants you to pay: $2000

And this is without mentioning the fact that this is a pre-built system, which obviously has a premium.

Yeah, need to remember that the 27" panel is roughly $700-800 so $1000 for a pretty decent Sandy Bridge setup with Thunderbolt is well worth it. Thunderbolt, at the moment, is not a cheap tech to add to a system, as let's say FireWire or USB, so that's a bit of a factor too. I'm sure Thunderbolt motherboards are going to be running about $250-$300 when they first come out later this year.

Without sounding like too much of a fanboy, their support has been amazing with me. I had my harddrive crash but luckily I already had my XT to put in. Brought it in to the Apple store and they said that they'd have the XT installed within 48 hrs. 5 hours later I get a call. My XT was installed with some data they managed to recover off the old drive. They had a replacement drive ready to go for me as well which I turned into an external.

Sure I might pay more money but I'd rather deal with a local person than some man in India who I can't understand.
