I am not thinking of games or making movies, but along the lines of multiple documents and static web browser windows open.

Should be absolutely perfectly totally fine. 4K might not be ideal since it will only do 30Hz. But 1080p is below the resolution of its own display and is really a quite low resolution these days, so it's fine.
It'll do 2560x1440 just fine, too.

Agreed, I do 4k @ 30Hz from time to time when I'm docked. While it's very usable, it feels a bit laggy.

3440x1440 checking in here. 60 Hz absolutely fine.

I have the 34" Curved LG 34UC97-S, which is also 3440x1440, and I'm only getting 30 hz (50 hz PAL, but I'm not in Europe where that might make a difference). There is no 60 hz option for me. I'm using the Apple multi-port adapter to HDMI, to the monitor. How are you making this work?

2560x1440 checking in. I use both the macbook display and Dell 25" extended display. (love the keyboard too much to clamshell it)

I Did nothing special. Also using the Apple adapter. Just plugged in and it worked. My monitor is the Dell though, not the LG.

Only suggestion I have is to try a newer HDMI cable.

Ohhh, that's right, the HDMI cable. I'm using the one that came with the LG. Maybe I'll buy a new HDMI 2.0 cable and give it a try. As I haven't done any gaming or video editing with this machine yet, I don't notice any drawbacks with only a 30 hz refresh rate. But of course, I would rather get 60 hz. if I can.

In another thread somebody just posted they were only getting 30hz until they changed HDMI cable and are now getting 60.
