    I imagine as more and more companies move from desktops to laptops, the number will keep dropping - surely enthusiasts make up a pathetically small proportion of the market? I don't think that 4K and the like will be changing things any time soon.

    I could be much more productive with a 4K screen at work, but the likelihood of my firm forking out for a laptop per employee, and then another £400 for monitors that we can only use when we're in the office? No chance.

    Only when decent 4k monitors are below £300 will the average consumer actually be interested in them

    I don't need any new screens at the moment I don;t think.

    24" 3D vision + glasses
    27" IPS for none 3D gaming etc
    40" Samsung TV via HDMI for some games.

    Until a decent 4K 3D screen appears at a reasonable price along with 20 nm graphics cards from nvidia I'll be holding fire myself.
