Lighter Color on the Horizon

Along with the new monitors Apple introduced with the Performas, look for a new 13" color monitor to replace the aging Apple 13" color monitor on October 19th. The new monitor will cost $200 less than the old one, weigh much less, and include a tilt & swivel base and front-mounted controls. Picture quality should remain high with a newer Sony Trinitron.

The only question is whether or not the new monitor will cause more interference problems in double-monitor setups without the heavy, metal shielding used by the older 13" color monitor. As it is, I can't put my SE/30 closer than about four inches from my Apple 13" color monitor or the color monitor flickers badly. I'll be curious to see if Apple discontinues the much-maligned 12" color monitor or merely lowers its price.
