What monitor would you recommend to use with a Mac laptop for graphic design?

You should check out Dell's LCDs if you want to save money. Personally, I'm happy with my HP 2208wh, but it needed some calibrating to get the colors right.

Are we talking professional graphic design where color accuracy is essential or a student learning graphic design in college/university?

Was suddenly thinking: do CRTs still provide the best colors? Or have LCDs finally caught up?

The benefits of an LCD, especially at larger sizes, far outweigh any accuracy provided by CRT's. Depending on your budget and needs you can definitely find a suitable LCD. Professional LCD's are basically as accurate as anybody needs and even mid range LCD's are more than adequate for most graphic design work.

And no, LCD's haven't really caught up to reference quality CRT's.

I'd get the 30" Apple Cinema display. Or the new Apple 24" Cinema.

(sigh) I'm not 'cool' enough to get an apple, so I got a Dell 2405fpw for half the price, with built in color calibration.
