For what I do, I prefer windows text rendering in many cases. For instance, using Apple mail, the text on an email is just too small, its not an iMac issue or a MBP problem, no matter what mac the text is smaller then on windows. Likewise with Excel, I typically have to set the zoom rate for excel to be 150% and that's using 12pt fonts on my spreadsheets.Text rendering is just so nice.
Great find - too bad that seems to be an EU-only model.OK so for the monitor I've put a pre-order in on the Iiyama G-Master GB3461WQSU-B1, it looks to be a decent package for under 400GBP. Most places are bumping the prices already closer to 500 as well.
It ticks all the boxes from a spec perspective, just need to cross fingers that the QC is good, otherwise it will be returned.

I never thought one could find one like that!! Hope it works out for you!I bought a monitor that looks exactly the same as the iMac display!! I’m so surprised. I’ve had an iMac for 12 years and bought a custom PC. I bought a monitor and the text looked so bad. I wanted a monitor with high ppi to have crisp text, and I bought the Planar IX2790. It’s amazing!! The text is so crisp and clear on windows. I feel like I’m running Windows on bootcamp.
I’m currently trying to install MacOS and I have an AMD cpu. Let’s see how that goes.
But to be fair, 'Windows' options are made up of many OEMs. So of course there will be more options.That's the conclusion I found after I went through most the Apple PC hardware. What they offer is what you get and if that doesn't fit what you're looking for then what do you do. Windows opens up options vastly and personally I've found Windows really good.
Indeed, just go to Razer, and you have very little options or choices. My take on it, is the manufacturers need to maximize profit but not at the expense of support costs. Having fewer models means less overhead throughout their supply chain and support. They're selling to the masses, not the individual.So, of course there will be more options on 'Windows' side, since there are many OEMs. But if you look at each OEM like an individual, you will soon find out that a lot of them are really similar to Apple.
