    Looks at the price, laughs, carries on.

    By now ALL monitors could easily jump to this res but the $$$$ means that we're stuck with bull crap displays offering little shiny advancements for maximum $$$. Obviously this is how business works but it's getting really, really annoying.

    "The 'retina' style high pixel density display"

    'retina' being ONLY a marketing word created by Apple to move more stock.

    Purchasing managers at content creation companies begin to sweat at the incoming departmental requests for new monitors.

    Actually the price is surprisingly in the right ball park with a colour accurate 4k monitor. Yes you can 4k displays for a couple of hundred but they're usually tn which is pretty useless for designers who need accurate colours etc.

    How well will a new MBP cope with its own screen (5MP) AND this 5k screen (14MP)... It seems like a LOT of pixels for a Radeon 450 or 460.

    I wonder if they'll start integrating graphics cards into monitors of this scale in the future?

    I don't mean to call you out here mate but you're absolutely wrong. It actually means "if you buy this your missus will claw your flippin' retinas out"
