Hey guys, so I'm currently in the process of redoing my home office and I'm currently torn between a refurbished Thunderbolt Display and a Dell U2715H. I live in Canada so a refurb TBD retails for $799 and the Dell for $699 (it's on sale and it ends today). First and foremost I'm a graphic designer so colour accuracy is a big factor here and having been accustomed to working on a 27" iMac in the industry the Thunderbolt display brings a lot of familiarity. My personal computer is a 2015 13" rMBP so I love the inclusion of an extra magsafe charger on the TBD, but where it seems to falter for me is that I want to hook up my PS4 to my monitor. With the TBD being incompatible thats a problem for me, however I did manage to find this: http://gamerzone.avermedia.com//game_capture/extremecap_u3 which from what I read will allow me to play my PS4 on my mac and thus the TBD too. But I am still unsure if it will work with my specific rMBP and do exactly that. But in the end, which monitor would best suit me and my needs? Much thanks!
