Hello, I am owner of a non-thunderbolt equipped Hackintosh but still wish to use an Apple display for the full OS X experience. I think that my biggest reasons for wanting it are that it is big and beautiful. 27" is ideal for my display size and the IPS technology would be great since I currently own a 21" TN monitor. In addition to its nice screen quality, I just think the design of it is absolutely wondful and that it would look nice on my desk. Plus, my hackintosh is in my garage where there won't any bright lights that cause a glare on its glossy finish. The two biggest concerns I have are its pricetag and its age. 1.) Is it worth the hefty price tag? I see that it is $999 brand new but have found a refurbished one on their website for a bit less. Still, it is VERY expensive since there are other IPS panels out there. Is it worth the price? Are the features worth it or am I mainly just paying to see an Apple logo on a nice-looking screen? 2.) It appears to be discontinued (probably in favor of the Thunderbolt Displays, right?). Is it too age-old that I would be a fool to buy this? Is the screen quality probably going to become obselete soon since Retina displays are taking over most of the smaller devices? Thank you very much.
