...is freakin' awesome!

6K display for $5K.




When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

Mister, that's a ten-gallon hat on a twenty-gallon head.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

I remember the first BIG apple flat display... 22" - 1600x1024 also cost $5000 when it debuted. Damn, that was a LONG time ago...

I remember a guy at my old MUG bring[ing] one in.

Very impressive.

6K display for $5K.

And I have two 4K displays that cost less than $400 for both.

Ummmm... I think he's pointing out that he only paid $100 per K, and Apple is charging $1000 per K. Simple math my friend.

So you can compare a cheap car and an expensive car in this exact way?

K aside, the specs are not equivalent. But OK.

Simple math my friend.

And an example of how good enough doesn't have to be anywhere near great.

2019 Maserati Quattroporte S Q4 GranLusso AWD

Surely two $30,000 sports cars would be better than that Maserati!

Different people value different performance specs. Some people are getting over 50 mpg with a Kia Niro. Two of them could get 25 mpg, still better than the Maserati Quattroporte. RollingEyesSmiley5

I didn't get a chance to watch the event, but is it true that the monitor doesn't come with a stand? And the stand is an additional $1000.00?!? @#$%& if it's true!! smiley-shocked003

Can you say "aftermarket"?

And if a group of people are lusting over the Quattro, two Niro's are relevent – how?

Answer - they aren't.

Because it's not the same thing. And it's not as though people interested in the Quattro are telling Niro owners to upgrade.

It's not the same thing.

This has no bearing on the monitor question.

Man, people always want it both ways.

If they include the stand the screen now costs $999 more, and since most pros (who are obvs the target market) probably already have some kind of VESA solution in place that means many of the included stands would never be used, and amount to environmental waste.

So Apple decides to make it optional, lower price, less waste, and people complain about how the stand is sooo expensive wah wah.

Yeah, it IS expensive. Apple makes it.
