Apple Pro Display XDR

Apple Pro Display XDR

$4,999 for the display. Plus $999 for the stand. Plus $999 for the optional matte option.

I wish Apple had announced an “Apple 5K Display” in 2016 rather than partnering with LG on the LG UltraFine 5K Display. I still hope they’re planning to release what’s essentially the UltraFine panel (which I assume is basically the 5K iMac panel) in an Apple-branded case. But given the way the display market has played out over the past 2.5 years, and given the displays that most companies tend to buy for Mac laptops these days, the UltraFine is a fantastic display and it’s insane that you apparently can’t get them anymore.

Flashback: The first iWalt.com post on record includes me dreaming about spending nearly $8K on a 22-inch Cinema Display and a PowerMac G4. So this post is extremely on-brand.
