This would make me consider switching to a mac mini, but I would LOVE to pair it with a new Mac Pro!

I don't see the point, besides a technical acheivment.

I now work on a 40inch UHD and the program-icons are pretty small enough to work with.
Let alone an even higher pixel rate on a 27inch screen will reduce the icons to, well practicaly useless.

For me a good reference should be: 4K image on a 40inch (or bigger) screen and 5K on a 50inch(or bigger) screen.

27inch is perfect for 2K images!

Greetings,

Alain,

Alain,

That's why you can scale the size of the icons. Apple's rMBP has a 2880xwhatever screen, but it doesn't give you an option to use that resolution in the display control in preferences. It has a resolution right under that and "retina" which is 2280xgod knows what and the pixels are is doubled to look the size of a lower resolution with a much greater clarity. I run the highest on the Windows side on mine some days and they do get small if you don't scale them.


My village called. I was told that they missed me.

Speedotron users, untie!

Yes, windows provides a similar setting. You can choose between small, normal or big.
For myself I keep the normal settings (why else buying a high-pixel screen if you set everything "BIG") ;)

Does that change everything? I know you can alter ths icon sizes and maybe a few other things, but changing the OS X's Retina display change everything to that resolution.
