Monitor for Macbook

Recommended Posts

Hi!! I currently use a MacBook Pro 15" with Retina Display to edit, but would like to purchase a monitor to go along with it. What is your reccomendation? I would like something somewhat cost efficient if possible, but at the same time I don't want to skimp on it. Any input would be appreciated.

This one seems to be the latest and greatest Dell Monitory. It's a 4K screen:

Oh gosh, don't be upset, but can you guys tell me if it would just be smarter to buy the 27" mac thunderbolt monitor to go with my macbook or does it really make no difference? I m sorry to be a pain! I just want something larger to edit on. This 15'' screen is too small and I want to make sure I get something good .

If you feel like spending $999, go ahead. :) 

Basically, the Thunderbolt Display is 1/4 of a whole Mac. You provide the CPU, HD, etc. For $700 more, you can get a whole new iMac, that has a faster CPU, faster graphics, larger and faster HD. 

You are paying a premium for convenience. Your MacBook will hook up just fine to it and Apple provides a cable to hook your MBP easily.
