I just bought two LG 27EA63V-P displays and am having second thoughts. The displays cost me about 3 bills each and I wanted to set them up with my mid 2010 MBP-15 (i7). I also have a two other mac portables (an MBA (i3) and and a MBP 13 (i5)) that both have thunderbolt, but my main machine is the MBP 15 (non thunderbolt). I just upgraded the ram on the MBP-15 to 8G and also bought an SSD (intel 530 series 240GB) that I am going to install. Ultimately I would like to build a desktop (read:hackintosh) to compete with the new Mac Pro, as I cannot afford the new dream machine -but want some of the awesome power it can provide. I am seriously thinking about taking these two 27inch panels back to pick up a new 29EA73V-P ultrawide 29" LG. It has display port inputs and the two current in the box 27s have only a dvi and hdmi input. Can anyone help me decide what to do? I thought about hooking up a single 27 to the MBP-15 and calling it good, then later playing with multimonitor for the forthcoming desktop, but I am so confused as to what would be the best price point. As another alternative, I seriously considered an open box thunderbolt 27" that my local store has for about 130 bucks off list. Considered biting the bullet and getting this AND another new one, but I believe these may not work AT all with my main MBP-15 (non-TB) It has display port only. Some say it will work, without sound, isight, etc... others say forget it... not joy whatsoever. Please help me in this quest!
