Hey folks, This is the second time I've had to write this post. I absolutely despise how this forum logs you out if you spend too long composing...! When I buy a Mac Pro (assuming an update is coming in Q1 2012...), I'll need a display for it. I had originally assumed I'd just get a 27" Thunderbolt display, but I recently considered what the alternatives might be. The reasons for me to favour the Apple display, that I can think of, are: 1. It's an 'Apple display'. Fits with the rest of the kit. 2. With the 17% educational discount, it's really quite reasonably priced. 3. Further to 2., the educational promotion provides a three-year warranty at no extra charge. 4. I gather it could be used to charge my MBP, which would be useful if I ever left my MagSafe at work. But here's why I might want to look elsewhere: 1. I like the idea of having a display that's bigger than 27". I used to own a 27" iMac, and it doesn't have the 'wow' factor that it used to have, for me. 2. I've 'got used' to the glossy finish on Apple displays, but I've never liked it. 3. The proprietary-only inputs seem kinda mean, to me. I wouldn't buy this display expressly for hooking it up to my Blu-ray player; but it'd be nice to have the option, in the event that my (slightly antiquated) television croaked on me. These are the issues that come to mind, right now. Does anybody have any thoughts or advice about this? Thanks in advance, DH.
