Shame, that would have been really cool if it was revealed today.
i was really hoping for it also
And sold to what market? Maybe Pro owners in December. But the rest of us with rMBPs or Ma minis would have little use for it.
Exactly, which is why I think Apple will quietly add a 4K display at the same time new Mac Pros are on the shelf/in the online store. Apple's own or whatever we saw in the event (that black display...a Sharp 4K?).
Will the new rMBP (both 13 & 15) not get on well with 4K?
That is up to the monitor. No current Macbook, or Mini can generate a 4K screen. Only the new Mac Pro has a graphics section that can do that.
I see. I really thought the rMBPs could. Thank you.
But it does have TB2...holds promise
Eizo CG276 is a 4K panel now. A pair of those would look lovely in my office!
Are you sure? Even the GeForce 650M can create 4K, only at 30fps. Worked out of the box under Windows. Used to require driver patching under OS X. Now, this post makes me believe, the pixel clock limit has been lifted under Maverics: http://forums.macrumors.com/showpost.php?p=18207584&postcount=5
my bad. I am too used to the ATD which only handles 3.6K. The rMBPs can drive a 5K screen. Now if Apple will only build one into the next ATD.
I thought the Eizo only added a downscaler to accept 4k signals... but not a native 4k panel.
A new 4k display would just be eye candy for me because $3,500+ is beyond my pricepoint and purposes.
According to the buying guide, it has been 770 days since the last update to the Thunderbolt display. I'm actually fine with the resolution of the current monitor.
My question is: how does the current 27-inch Thunderbolt display compare to other monitors on the market in terms of color quality, response time, build, etc.?
Should I tough it out with just a retina laptop screen for now, or should I buy a Thunderbolt display? I just want a larger workspace when I'm sitting at my desk.
I currently have the high-def MBP and a 27" ACD - both are more than fine for every day uses. I love the Retina on my iPhone 5S but honestly haven't felt the need to scale up all the way to retina on my computers just yet. Most of the web would need to catch up to it anyway for it to be "pretty."
In terms of the responsiveness of the ACD, zero complaints here. It works great for pretty much anything I throw at it and I'm just an average user. (e.g. internet, YouTube, streaming movies, writing code, etc.)
needs to pull their finger out announce a new display. 4K matte. 30" or larger. arm option. rotate design to use displays in portrait mode. it's been a long time coming.
...Maybe a variant of the Sharp PN-K321, but with TB 2 ports..
Here in the UK the panel was updated around a month or so ago.
Updated to accept/downscale 4k signal... not to actually have 4k panel inside.
It would be a smoking hot deal if it actually had a 4k panel in it.
Even if they updated it with USB 3.0 and TB2, I would be tempted. It would go well with my MB Air.
USB 3 + TB2 is probably the big driver for me to upgrade from my 24" ACD
i have the 24'' ACD too and would get a new one just for the new thin design...i assume it's going to be released next year with an updated smaller Mac Mini.
"the thinnest display in the world and the smallest Mac mini we've ever made"
I wonder if Apple will do a stealth update of the current Thunderbolt display and just have it magically appear as an option when the new Mac Pro's are made available for ordering on the Apple website in December.
This is what's keeping me from buying a pair of TB displays. I don't care about 4k/Retina, but I would like to know that I can plug in TB 2 devices in the chain after the monitor and USB 3 is a must.
I'm kinda surprised Apple hasn't just done a minor rev of the TB display just to add this -- makes me curious to just how little of these displays they sell.
BTW -- I'm also surprised that Apple hasn't re-engineered the iMac to be a Mac mini (with better specs to match current iMacs) paired with a TB monitor. I know other companies have done things like this, but pretty sure that Apple could do it much better than anyone else.
Patience. I'm sure it will be worth the wait!
Apple Thunderbolt 2 Display 4K 24-inch with USB 3 and built-in 3D SDS support for passive 3D glasses. Finally, 3D on Mac! Twin Digital Terrestrial Television tuners for full Picture-in-Picture (PiP) and full Picture-and-Picture (PaP) television (TV) reception.
Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad and built-in USB 3 hub (wired).
No. But Bluetooth 4.0. Also, the unification of the keyboard and trackpad by means of i.e. integrating sensors on the keys of the home row so you don't have to leave the home row at all for doing pointy stuff is interesting - but that's a "No.", too, even though I already tried using only a 14x14mm area of the trackpad and it works fine when you bump up the tracking speed. Determining the times at which your fingers just rest on the home row vs. those at which you're pointing is another matter, unless you put an "activator pad" underneath the space bar that activates pointing when you put your thumb on it.
