Apple officially discontinued its 23-inch Cinema Display on Tuesday, making way for recently announced 24-inch LED Cinema.

The 23-inch display is now listed on Apple’s online store as “Discontinued.” The status of the old monitor comes as no surprise — speculation of it being cut from the product line-up started as soon as the new monitor was announced.

The 24-inch LED was announced on the same day as the new MacBook and MacBook Pro notebooks in October. The 24-inch LED Cinema Display offers 1,920-by-1,200-pixel resolution, along with a built-in iSight camera and microphone, stereo speakers, and three-port USB 2.0 hub. It features an aluminium and glass enclosure.

The new monitor is being targeted to owners of the new notebooks. The LED Cinema Display features an integrated MagSafe charger that allows laptop users to plug in and power their notebooks. MacBook users can also connect to the monitor via its Mini DisplayPort, which Apple says is 10 percent the size of a full DVI connector.

The 24-inch LED costs $1499 and can be ordered from the online Apple store.
