Need some advice on monitor apple and dell

I have a hard time making a decision on which should I pick: I can get Apple 23 for $550 new or 24 dell for $667 also new from dell store. did anyone of u have side by side for comparison? online I found a lot of reviews but reviews are quite old outdated from 2005 or 2006. I am aware very well of specs of both monitors. both are good monitors; dell has more cramped features in the monitor and higher contrast. but design and quality etc need help to pick one please thx

2 choices only this or that
