MiniMac w/ Dell 20 inch LCD vs. 20 inch iMac

MacInTouch Home Page

The $500 Dell is a great bargain and a great Mini Mac companion, but it's not quite the equal of the 20" G5 iMac. (Gamma perhaps?)
The toughest test was a side-by-side comparison with a 20-inch iMac G5 display. While the Dell display was excellent, with the same broad range of viewing angles, it didn't quite match the stunningly bright, neutral whites of the 20' iMac, no matter how we adjusted brightness, color and calibration. There's nothing wrong with the Dell, and it has three times the warranty, but its image is not quite as amazing. (Nor is any other display we've seen, including the 15' PowerBook's.)
