Also there's a korean manifacturer making displays /w the same panel for 300ish bucks(incl. shipping), downside being they ship from korea and are glossy.
Ooo... You're right. I could have sworn it was a plain LCD but it looks like Apple has finally started shipping IPS screens in all it's products. I don't believe mine is an IPS screen, but I could be wrong. It is a little older now, though.
Personally, I prefer a glossy screen as colors tend to be a bit more vibrant. Though, my iMac sits away from a window to reduce the glare. The Dell 24" UltraSharp I have at work, however, is matte but it's still a truly beautiful display. One of the best I've had the pleasure of using. My only complaints about it are about it's form-factor. It has loads of connectors and is great for ergonomics (it goes pretty high and is swivels well) but the buttons are way, way too easy to hit. I have poor depth perception and often find myself bumping the bottom corner and turning it off. That and I always reach to adjust the screen to just where they put the touch menus...
Still, those are small complaints. If all you care about is the screen, there's few better for the rice.
