I think Apple should just forget the BYODKM thing and offer ADTM.

Affordable Displays That Match.

A built-in iSight camera would be nice too!

That would be a good plan. If Apple could make a nice display more along the lines of the iMac with an iSight at a good price it would sell well.

I like the look of my 20" ACD but to be honest more people would probably be more attracted to a white/black plastic model. This would also keep the cost down.

A white and silver plastic model would be cool. They could even do something like this and throw an iSight in it. I think the 19" ViewSonic with dock will sell for around $300. I could see Apple selling a ton of them at $399 with both things.

That would be very cool, especially if it played the videos right off the iPod.

With LCD display prices dropping and the persistent image problems with current Cinema Displays it seems inevitable that Apple will refresh the entire line.

Mine persistently pleases me.

Aesthetically, I'll take the old ADC models any day. In fact I recently voted with my feet and bought a used 20" to go with my Cube. They take up more real estate than the current ACD models, but the pinstripe border and the plexiglas feet are really nice.

They're better displays in many ways. No persistency problem and more accurate color when calibrated. I have a 23" on my Mac Pro and a couple on G5s.

A 17" widescreen monitor is just a wider 15" traditional monitor, same height:

17" 16:10 monitor = 14.4" wide x 9.0" tall

15" 4:3 monitor = 12" wide x 9.0" tall

To maintain the height of a 17" 4:3 monitor when going to widescreen, you need to go to a 19-20" diagonal.
