    Just got the monitor after cracking my Dell 34 inch ultra wide curved monitor. I felt ultra wide was the way to go for documents but now feel a bit different. Some people think 22inch is small for a monitor but it almost feels perfect if the screen is true 4k of this quality and if the monitor is 1 foot away from your face as in my case.

    I have it sitting on a 3 inch height glass topper and monitor if fully extended. All this sits on my treadmill desk. I find it better that I don't have to turn my head to look at documents and having a 27 inch apple panel in the past, I felt like i was either looking around or just keeping documents in the middle of the screen. Looking around at documents isn't a good thing from my experience. This this 4k, I'm just looking straight at it with 2 full documents side by side.

    With the laptop lid closed, things are smooth enough fro me. with both screens running, youll see some lag when moving documents around. For me it was always about the high definition of the letters and I couldn't get that with other monitors. If you are gaming or video editing, I'd go for a ultra wide curved screen except my setup is underpowered for those scenarios.

    I also feel that I can move this monitor around if say I want to go use it on my balcony table. I can probably even travel with it since it so small. I even placed it on my bed to watch a movie. Anyways just pointing out the positives of this 22 inch. Never thought Id be paying premium for a 22 inch but it seems to be the right match for the 12 inch MacBook.

    Its the same as on the MacBook. The PPI of both screens is almost the same from my understanding.
