Apple releases new 27-inch LED Cinema Display

2560 x 1440 pixel resolution, 60 percent more real estate

Apple on Tuesday unveiled a new 27in LED Cinema Display, the latest offering in its line of integrated monitors for the Mac line.

The company says its new display features a resolution of 2560x1440 pixels and 60 percent more screen real estate than its smaller 24-inch cousin. The design mirrors that of its predecessors, with a 16:9 edge-to-edge arsenic-free glass display on an aluminum stand, with an adjustable hinge to control the screen’s viewing angle. Apple has also added an ambient light sensor to the automatically adjust the screen’s LED emitter brightness in response to environmental conditions.

The new Cinema Display includes a built-in iSight camera, speakers, microphone and a powered three-port USB-2.0 hub, in addition to a universal MagSafe adaptor that can charge a connected Apple MacBook or Apple MacBook Pro. You connect computers to the display via the Mini DisplayPort, which transports both audio and video.

You'll have to wait to get your hands on the new display: Apple says the 27-inch LED Cinema Display arrives in September for a suggested price of $999.

The UK Apple Store currently has 'Coming Soon' next to the display with no pricing details.
