Hello!

Simple question: Does anyone know if a Apple Cinema Display Aluminum 20" Mac PC Monitor A1081 works with OS9 (I am running a Powermac G4 AGP)?

The specs for the monitor says it requires OSX but that seems a bit odd to me...

Many thanks in advance!

Hey Sarge,

Yep it works great! I've got an HDM splitter and use it across three machines (G4 Quicksilver, Mac Pro, and PC( ::))). Definitely my favourite monitor. Just make sure you've got a video card that can support the higher resolutions otherwise it may not look very good.

Hey Greystash,

Thank you for the reply, I really appreciate it.

My machine has an ATI Rage 128 Pro in it... I think that should be OK?

Best,

Sarge

No problem, that card should be fine. I think I've run one of those on 1920x1080 so that's more than you'd need
