    Reading thru the specs of the new MBPr (e.g. Haswell) and noticed the following....

    Is this saying the New MBPr will not support 4k external displays (e.g. 3840 × 2160)? Kind of thought that was at least half of what TB2 was all about. Also, was thinking the dGPU was a benefit in this area (dual display support) and possible reason to move towards the high-end. Starting to think differently, need input...

    Yep, so I guess 4k is supported via HDMI. Still makes me think, "what a waste of a TB2 port". No biggie now, but hoping a 4k external display/hub comes out at a reasonable price in the next couple years and that I would be ready for it.
