Apple Thunderbolt Display 27-inch
This 27-inch display costs as much as a pro-level one, yet doesn’t have significantly more features than some of the cheaper displays on test – it won’t even tilt or pivot.
On the plus side, it does have a built-in 2.1 sound system and webcam. It also has Apple’s fast Thunderbolt connection, which enables you to daisy-chain devices. (That’s great if you’ve got a Mac, but PC users won’t want it.) Images look terrific and there’s a 2560x1440 pixel resolution.
Apple is great with design, so this looks fantastic. If you already own a Mac, it will be tempting.
Pros: A no-brainer for Mac owners who love Thunderbolt.
Cons: Expensive compared to others such as the Viewsonic.
We say: A trend-setting display, but too expensive.
It’s gorgeous – but it costs as much as a pro display and many of the cheaper displays have the same features
