Now this is crazy. According to the Chinese-language Apple Daily, Chi Mei is planning to cut the price of its own-branded 22″ LCD monitor in Taiwan from NT$11,900 to NT$9,990. In US dollars, that’s about $300! Chi Mei is also planning to lower prices of its 20″ and 19″ wide LCD monitors.
With a $300 price tag for a 22″ LCD monitor, there really is no other option but to get one! Compared to a $149 17″, $199 19″, $219 19″ wide, or $249 20″ wide, the $300 22″ is unbeatable. The only thing keeping me back is the Chi Mei brand and whether it will be available State side.
