I'm most interested in what kind of discount we can get on the Dell UltraSharp U2713HM. I currently have a 24" UltraSharp that's great, and this 27" unit has multiple inputs and USB 3.0 ports (which the Catleap doesn't). If those could be got for less than $500, I'd be so in.
My fallback would be the Monoprice 27" IPS LED CrystalPro Monitor (which someone elsewhere says uses the same panel as the Catleap). I'd have ordered one weeks ago, but they're out of stock for at least another month, but I don't see participating in a group buy for that one since their quantity pricing for this item has almost no discount.
