Has a Built-In Camera

The 27" Thunderbolt Display has a built-in camera, unlike most of the other PC monitors of this age and spec which do not have a built-in camera.

We compared this LCD screen to all the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in camera and we think because of it's better review score, the Philips 231C5 is also worth considering.
