Wow. That's a pretty good price for the 5k.

I can't wait to hear what people have to complain about this.

Wow! Weird! That LG 5K UltraFine is looking a lot less ugly at that price point. Tempted.

Edit: Nope, that monitor is still hideous.

How bad ARE the new MacBook pros selling? If they had planned this already, these lower peripheral prices would have been the starting point after the event. The only thing that makes sense is this is some kind of damage control...

Hmmm…
It would appear the word got back to Apple about their user base not being happy about being taken advantage of just for being a loyal Mac user.
So much for our friends out there saying that the complainers should just shut up or leave because complaining won't do any good.

If they were designed in partnership with LG, why are they so ugly? Would it have killed them to improve the design to be a little bit more in line with the rest of Apple products? The price cut is welcome, but that's just shaving off the Apple tax. On a non-Apple product.

What is the point of buying 5K monitor now when the iPhone can only take 4K videos? Will the text be too small to see? I am a programmer.


I think I've heard that there are video sources other than iPhone. Don't quote me on that though.
