Display for MacBook

Hey,

 

I know a lot of you are Windows-based users, however, I currently have the 13" MacBook Pro with TouchBar and am now looking for a decent monitor for it.

 

Budget of around £500 (nothing fancy, but needs to look cool).

 

Not sure if there are USB-C ones out there like LG's, if so, that's a preference but HDMI would do too.

 

Let's see what you got :)

Mac user (for work) here!

I recently got my 13" MBPro too (and love it)

 

There are USB-C (Thunderbold3) options but they are super expensive. I recomend a HDMI/Dispalyport one and a USB-C to either of those cable (15$ on amazon)

 

I use this monitor and love the colors and sharpens

when being this monitor go via Displayport since Mac OS supports night shift better there 

And boy MacOS in dark mode on this display is sexy AF :D

FOLDING MONTH 2021! GOGOGO and save on some heating costs 🙂

Ooh - I like it. 

 

I'm trying to get into dark mode at the moment, not ready to make the full move yet ;)

 

Will see what else there is, as just bought the iPhone Xs Max, so funds are pretty low xD

 

Defiantly on my list though!

oh ok sorry didn't catch you're from the UK

this is also a 27" solution, wich is cheaper 

https://www.amazon.co.uk/LG-Electronics-27UD59-B-Lg-27UD59-B-AEU/dp/B0764DMTPN/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1540755191&sr=8-1&keywords=27UD59-B

 

"Cheap" option: 

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Acer-RT280Kbmjdpx-Monitor-Black-FreeSync/dp/B01KCLMHNY/ref=sr_1_11?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1540755244&sr=1-11&keywords=4k%2B27%2Bips&th=1

 

but colors are nowhere near the LG

 

Regarding the LGs: there also is the 27UD58, with is the predecessor to the UD59, slightly lesser colors but cheaper.

 

And congrats to the Xs Max, personally to big for me and I am happy with my X, but boy thats a nice screen!

Aha, it's amazing.

 

Upgraded from the 7 so big difference, I could never go to a smaller screen now. They got me tied in xD

Also, do you use official Apple keyboard/mouse?

yes. It is expensive but recommend it due to the other keys like cmd and control not working properly on win keyboards. Mouse is not so important. But I do recommend the Magic Mouse due to the possibility to use gestures
