Why are you guys complaining about d-sub? It comes with DVI, DisplayPort, and D-Sub not just d-sub. A d-sub will let you dock your Windows netbook, Displayport will let you dock your iMac, and DVI for your desktop/workstation. I think it's great they offer all 3.
But at 24" I would have liked 1440 in the "y". Shame. Waiting for an IPS y1440 monitor in 24" (or less) format...
Nonetheless this is a great price for IPS and those specs. Step in the right direction for Dell.
