    My current setup is a mid 2012 MBP non retina attached to a ATD. Though very convenient I am looking to upgrade the monitor first. I really like the ultrawides but also looking at the 27 4k.

    Thoughts? I may need to use this monitor for both the MBP and a future PC. Been researching resolutions and all and I can live with the lower then 4k res of the ultrawides as long as it fits on my desk :)

    I have the LG 34UC87 and am very happy with it thus far. I have used it in the past with both a mac pro and macbook air but has plenty of connections to connect to multiple sources. My only complaint about the monitor is that it is a pain to switch sources as there is only a little joystick that you can use to change and you have to navigate through a few levels of menus. Would have been nice to have a dedicated button to cycle through input sources.

    I also have an LG ultrawide (a 29"). Mine uses the same little joystick to change sources (more like a little square "nub" underneath the front bezel), but I haven't found it to be a pain - I switch back and forth between my MBP and an Apple TV.

    So I ended up with the Dell U3415W. So far so good. It appears the Dell software to do the split screens is not Mac compatible but I can live with it. Monitor looks good so far.
