    Just got a 15 in. MBP for doing photo editing (LR3) and I wanted to get a secondary monitor. I wanted to know if anyone is using anything other than a mac display for this purpose. I was looking at the 27 in. thunderbolt display but for $1k, I was thinking of a little less expensive option. Thanks.

    There are millions using MBPs with non-Apple displays. There's certainly no need to go with an Apple display unless you choose to.

    You can get any display. Won't make a difference.

    The TB display has some nice features that differentiate it from other screens, but it would be nice if it was available in antiglare.

    As good as they are, I could never justify the cost of an Apple display.

    A creaky El Cheapo 23" Dell here. It gets me by and you can't beat the extra real estate on a MBP 13".
