I hope you're not calling the iMac's CRT high quality.
Of course, all this will be moot in a couple weeks when the iMac has a flat panel display
|Doesn't the iBooks monitor look like it has a smaller pixel density than the Ti Book? I could be wrong. Same with the iMac, it has a very pixelated look.|
Aaaah... I think I figured out the problem. You must be talking about the old iBooks, not the new ones. The new iBooks have a 1024x768, 12.1" display that is hands down the best 12.1 in the business (that's not just my opinion -- it's been reviews as such by even PC mags). The older models had 800x600 screens that weren't nearly as good. The other possibility is that the one you saw was using a non-native resolution; LCD displays all look pixellated when not using their native rez.

|Reliability: yes, they break. One of the strategies that Jobs used to increase Apples profitability was to cut back on build quality a little. I believe they are as good or better than anything out there, but they are not at the same level that they once were. That's my impression anyway.|
