Apple preparing new Cinema displays for early 2009?

Updated 4 years ago

Apple alluded to several upcoming product refreshes in its recent earnings report conference call, and if these rumors hold true, it looks like the Cinema Display line could be amongst the first to go under the knife. Macrumors is reporting that Apple will be releasing a new line of Cinema Displays, possibly to coincide with the annual Macworld conference in January. The improvements and changes will include LED backlighting across the board, which would be a considerable feat considering the sheer size and cost of their current 30″ display. LED backlighting provides significant brightness and energy consumption improvements over LCD screens, so we’d be happy to see this shift, but as of now we’re a bit wary of this coming to fruition.
