Apple Cinema Display (20-Inch, Aluminum) was a great departure in design. Meant to complement the Apple hi-end products, such as Power Macintosh G5 and PowerBook G4 models, it got an anodized aluminum casing with a slight bezel mounted on an aluminum stand with an adjustable hinge. The display also meets Electronics Standards Association (VESA) mounting interface standard and can be mounted on a wall or an articulating arm. Technically it is an active-matrix LCD matte display with maximum resolution of 1680×1050 pixels with an integrated two port USB hub, two FireWire “400” ports and the industry standard DVI (Digital Video Interface) socket. Thus, the Apple Cinema Display (20-Inch, Aluminum) is compatible not only with a Macintosh but also with an IBM desktop.

- DPI (dots per inch) or PPI (pixels per inch) is a critical parameter of image quality a display can present. The higher is the number, the sharper is the image, because technically a picture on LCD screen consists of millions of tiny dots. Their density determines the screen resolution. Dot/Pixel Pitch marks the distance between those dots, whether they are placed close enough to each other. In this case, the lower is the number, the sharper is the image.
