I'm a web developer whos been waiting for Apple to release a refreshed 27" display for over a year. A thousand dollars for a monitor without USB3 support seems off. I have a late 2013 retina macbook pro which has 2 thunderbolt ports. People are talking about the possibility of the next Apple display being retina or 5K only. If thats the case I would like to buy now and have a standard DPI monitor for seeing what the majority of the world sees. It is still very frustrating to work in Photoshop on retina screen (need to work at 200%). My question is: Is it better to buy the thunderbolt or Cinema display? The thunderbolt has more ports (that are out dated) but the cinema display seems compatible with PC's which would be nice since I have a Windows machine as well. Does anyone have experience with the Cinema display on a PC? I also have the logic that more parts in the Thunderbolt display mean more points of potential failure. I cant think of any major reasons why the Thunderbolt display is better. I have an ethernet adapter and don't have any firewire devices. Does Thunderbolt allow for anything really cool over the Cinema that I'm missing?
