LED Cinema Display

Besides the new MacBook family, Apple also announced the new LED Cinema Display featuring a stunning 24-inch LED-backlit widescreen display with built-in iSight video camera, mic and speakers in a thin aluminum and glass enclosure. Designed for the new MacBook family, the LED Cinema Display includes an integrated MagSafe charger, three USB 2.0 ports and the new Mini DisplayPort, making it easy for MacBook users to quickly connect and power their notebooks as well as use their favorite peripherals.

Besides the power cord, there's another cable that splits into three cables: a Mini DisplayPort, a MacSafe connector (for charging up the MacBook family), and USB 2.0 port (to enable the three USB 2.0 ports at back as well as the built-in iSight, microphone and speakers).

The new LED Cinema Display is the greenest Apple display ever, made with mercury-free LED technology, arsenic-free glass and highly recyclable materials. The LED Cinema Display meets stringent Energy Star 4.0 requirements and achieves EPEAT Gold status. The new display contains no brominated flame retardants, all internal cables and components are PVC-free and its foam packaging has been reduced by 44 percent.

The new LED Cinema Display will be available in November for a suggested retail price of US$899. Apple's current Cinema Displays (20-inch, 23-inch and 30-inch) are still available.
