    I am getting ready to get a 5k iMac and excited about the potential skylake update. I have a quad core 2012 Mac Mini to hold me over so I can wait. How many think the next iMac 5k will come with USB-C? And Thunderbolt 3?

    Finally, one cable to rule them all!

    Whilst the USB-C is interesting i would much prefer TB3 to have DP1.3

    Think within the next two years they'll release a new revision of the ATD with a Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) as the sole connector coming from the monitor? More than enough power being provided to charge the laptop and then plenty of bandwidth for a 4k/5k screen and extra peripherals. That'd be one slick setup wouldn't it?

    Sorry, I know it's slightly off topic, but I was a little bit excited after rereading the article about future iterations of USB-C.
