Default Apple displays on Win systems

I knew I could find some statement of this from Apple, and thanks to Howard Allen on Snarkish for pointing it out. See the attached.

In the same discussion, Jim Nichol pointed out that a 23-inch would work so long as the PC graphics card supports DVI with DDC technology for widescreen viewing. But a 30-inch requires two DVI connections.

One cool thing is that the USB2 and Firewire ports on the monitor do work with PC installations. There is more information at this Apple page and on the tech specs page. (It does not appear that Apple is really pushing for Windows business — the compatibility information is dribbled out in little spurts all over the site!)

Appears to be easy enough to do after all. Do you have a laptop with the appropriate video card so you could go to an Apple store and ask to hook up to one of the displays?
