20″ Cinema Display Discontinued, Possible Updates Coming

MacRumors points out that Apple has removed the 20″ Cinema Display from its online store, while at the same time notifying resellers that the product has been “end of life’d” and will no longer be available to order.

apple flat panelA quick check with various resellers proves the information correct.

While it may be possible that Apple has simply chosen to stop offering a 20″ model, it seems more likely that they are preparing to release a new LED-based 20″ Display with the new Mini DisplayPort introduced in October. Apple has said that all future products will contain the Mini DisplayPort connectors. Apple’s 30″ Display remains available in stores at this time.

Apple introduced a 24″ LED display at the October 14th, 2008 media/notebook event alongside a line of new unibody notebooks. first impressions of the unit were impressive, however, because of the new Mini DisplayPort connection, those who own Mac products without this connection cannot use Apple’s new LED display. This leaves a gap in consumers wanting or needing a new Apple display but not having the correct machine to fully support it without an adapter.

Interestingly, rumors about a possible entry into the “networked television” market have been swirling around. Mahalo.com founder Jason Calacanis claimed to have information about these Apple branded HDTV sets back in October. Additionally, a statement from overseas regarding a new deal with LG was heard, “LG Display has made a long-term agreement to supply a massive amount of LCD to Apple in the face of uneasy condition of foreign capital inflow amid the global economic downturn.” However, that’s all the information that was given.

I’ll be looking for some great sales on eBay. Nothing like perfectly useful technology being dumped for the sake of “being cool”.

I can sure tell you, I would love 2 new LED displays for my Dual Core Intel Xeon.
But my machine can not support it………. I hope they come out with an adapter of some kind, unless Apple is going to start giving us the hand on older equipment.

I spent alot of money on my tower, not to mention I max it out with 16 gigs of RAM

Come on Apple show me some love!!!!!! a little support/help with this matter would be just stellar
