    Used Thunderbolt 27" Display at

    As I'm about to receive a new 2018 MacMini (6-core i7/64GB/1TB SSD) to replace my late Mavericks-gimped 2010 MacAir, I'd really like to find one or even two refurbished/used TB Display to connect. Short of finding one at the Apple Store, I'm considering this one available at OWC's

    Why No Apple-made Next-Gen/5K Display?

    I just had this realization: Apple has made a 5K display for a while now -- it just happens to be glued to a computer (the iMac). Now that there's finally USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 available to pipe 5K video to an external display, why haven't they simply taken their iMac 5K Retina and made a...
