Congrats, Amy!! We've been talking about a new computer, though I think we're going to go with an Apple. Drew's iMac is so much faster than my Dell. But I agree with Sadie, in that they're so not user friendly. I have a heck of a time doing anything on Drew's computer. I'm just more PC minded. And I can't figure out the darn scrolling on is laptop! My fingers must not be made for it or something lol!
I had to do a little digging to find the specs for that one. Since it's an LED and newer technology, it doesn't have IPS or TN technology, but something called TFT. It looks like it will render color like a TV and has controls on it like a TV too. You have the ability to adjust not only brightness and contrast but also color temperature.
Is there a display that you can look at in a store near you? I'd be interested to see if you can get the brightness turned down to a suitable level for photography. They tend to turn those things up waaaaaay too bright out-of-the-box. You could also check out the viewing angles that way too.
Thanks everyone! I was so excited that I wanted to order yesterday lol, but I am going to give it a week or two to make sure I get the right display. I agree that LED, if it's like anything else with LED, might have a blue cast and/or brightness issues. Not sure. So I will try to check one out in a store this weekend.
