I just picked up a new 15" rMBP (it has the separate GPU), and will be using it at home with an external monitor in clam-shell mode. I currently use a 24" ACD, which I can use with the rMBP, but am considering other options. Criteria: -Higher resolution (but not 4K), in the 24-27" size. I want something that can be easily driven by the laptop. -Maximum compatibility - as close to plug-and-play compatible as an Apple display would be (sleep/wake, miniDP connectivity, etc.). -Built-in USB3 hub (powered, ideally). Obviously, a nice pictures is important, but I am not a graphic professional and am not obsessive about color accuracy. There obviously are many, many monitors out there that are much cheaper than anything Apple offers, but many seems to have issues when used with a rMBP. Even a refurbished TBD is really expensive, but at least I know it will work with the rMPB with few headaches (MagSafe converter aside). The Dell monitors seem to have great specs but often appear to have compatibility issues. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I've tried going through as many threads as possible, but wanted to ask the direct question.
