500m goes to LG for new Monitors

I’m not going to sit here and pretend that I know which company every part of my laptop came from, but the fact that LG, the worlds second biggest LCD maker, is going to be in charge of producing every screen available throughout Apple’s product line is a bit of exciting news. I’ve had quite a few interesting moments and cursing fits with my Cinema display and laptop displays over the last three years. What’s with the foggy picture on the screen when you’re at a resolution other than the recommended ones (it’s an iBook and the display is 3-4 years old now)? Anyhow, the project comes with a steep 500 million dollar downpayment.

Hopefully this marks the movement to better and more technologically advanced LCDs throughout the Apple product line.
