Apple’s new 24-inch LED Cinema Display now shipping

Apple LED Cinema Display - Apple Store (U.S.)Apple’s new 24-inch LED Cinema Display is now shipping from the U.S. Apple Store which now lists the display as shipping within “7-10 business days,” where before it said “coming soon” — although there is still no “buy” link for the product on Apple’s Web site currently.

With the Apple LED Cinema Display (US$899), you can turn your new MacBook into a desktop in three easy connections. The universal MagSafe connector charges your notebook. A new Mini DisplayPort connector makes attaching an external display even easier and faster than before. And a USB connector provides access to three USB 2.0 ports. There’s also a built-in iSight camera, microphone, and speaker system that provide a true desktop experience. Made of aluminum and glass, the LED Cinema Display is the perfect companion for the new MacBook family.

Made for the new MacBook family. The LED Cinema Display is the first display designed specifically for the MacBook. Three easy connections allow you to extend your desktop, charge your MacBook and access a world of USB peripherals.

Connect via Mini DisplayPort. The LED Cinema Display attaches to your new MacBook, MacBook Pro, or MacBook Air using the new industry-standard Mini DisplayPort connector. Other display connectors have you lining up pins or fumbling with screws. But the Mini DisplayPort connector is easy in, easy out.

Extend your desktop. Connect your new MacBook to the LED Cinema Display, and it’s like upgrading your screen to first class. The 24-inch LED-backlit widescreen display adds 1920 by 1200 pixels to your workspace, giving your work more room to impress. And its glossy finish makes graphics, photos, and video appear in rich colors and deep blacks.

The LED advantage. LEDs are solid-state light sources that are an ideal complement to digital LCDs. They light up very quickly, which means you experience full screen brightness the moment you connect your LED Cinema Display to your new MacBook, MacBook Pro, or MacBook Air. And LEDs are completely mercury-free.

MagSafe connector. The LED Cinema Display is the perfect companion for your new MacBook, because it includes a convenient universal MagSafe connector that powers and charges your MacBook when you’re back at your home, office, or dorm. You can leave your MacBook power adapter right in your bag, ready to hit the road.

Built-in conveniences. With a built-in iSight camera, microphone, speaker system, and USB hub, the LED Cinema Display keeps your desktop clutter-free. Have video conferences with your MacBook closed. Listen to music without headphones. And leave your USB peripherals connected to the display for quick get-up-and-go productivity.

Green design. The LED Cinema Display, like the latest-generation iPod, iPhone, and Mac computers, features mercury-free LED backlight technology and arsenic-free glass. The display is also free of BFRs and PVCs in all internal cables and components. In addition, the glass and aluminum construction make the display highly recyclable, so its raw materials can be used in other types of products. It receives a Gold rating from the Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT).

  1. so technically not shipping just stating when they will ship. The headline is misleading. Shame on MDN for not providing an accurate headline.

    Should read
    Apple’s new 24-inch LED Cinema Display now shipping in 7-10 days
    or even
    Apple’s new 24-inch LED Cinema Display now shipping but you can’t purchase it yet.
    or even
    Apple’s new 24-inch LED Cinema Display now shipping (real soon)

    Cool, I would be glad for Apple to ship me the Cinema Display without having to purchase it first.

  3. “Apple Store which now lists the display as shipping within “7-10 business days,” where before it said “coming soon” — although there is still no “buy” link for the product on Apple’s Web site currently.”

    So, how exactly is this “shipping” if you can’t buy it yet and it’s not shipping for 7-10 days?

  4. Meanwhile the Dell 2408wfp is 25% off and selling for $517.
