Hi, After reading quite a few threads and pricing up various options I figure you guys might have a simple solution.. I'm a Graphic Designer that's just recently left a studio environment where i was supplied with an iMac. I have an early 2011 MBP upgraded to 16gb ram and SSD with which I pick up any freelance stuff. I'm now looking to work freelance and need more than just a 13" screen to work from, I'm more used to running 2 displays. My work is not 3D or video heavy, so I don't need a powerful machine, but a good workspace is key. I was considering getting a new iMac with the 5k display, but I am conscious that the MBP has had a hard life and could pack up, I need a laptop on standby and would rather pump money into a new one. So I've been looking at displays with the view to run alongside a MBP.. I've ruled the thunderbolt display out, its getting old and I want something new that will run alongside my new mbp/iMac when I purchase within the next year. I've looked at a couple of Dell monitors that get good reviews. But the more I read, the more they are incompatible with my 2011 MBP? The two I was looking at are below... P2715Q - http://www.digitaltrends.com/monitor-reviews/dell-p2715q-review/ 4K, so could run well alongside an iMac U3415W - http://www.digitaltrends.com/monitor-reviews/dell-ultrasharp-u3415w-review/ Looks great, would potentially replace 2 monitors and would be an entertainment solution. Interested to hear your thoughts on running one of these with the 2011 MBP until I can get a newer model? Cheers!!
