    Note sure what makes it better than a $400 4K monitor. Perhaps the Apple logo?

    - 77 % more pixels makes it better than a $400 4K monitor.

    $900 better? And can we humans really see the resolution difference at regular working distances?

    - I say no. But to each his own.

    It also supplies power, provides a USB-C 5 Gbps hub, and includes a webcam and microphone over that one Thunderbolt 3 cable.

    Now, the 4K UltraFine is properly puzzling with its USB 2.0 speeds and only 60 W of power. Really not getting that...

    Resolution is far from the only thing that makes a monitor these days. Show me one that supports DCI-P3 at that price.



    Also what apple logo?
