Sharp 32" PN-K321 4K Ultra HD LED Monitor
If you were holding out hope that an Apple-branded 4K monitor would arrive in stores alongside the new Mac Pro, you’ll probably have to keep holding your breath until later in 2014. But even though there’s no new Thunderbolt Display from Cupertino, the Apple Store does have a launch day 4K display option available: Sharp’s 32” PN-K321 4K Ultra HD LED Monitor ($3595). Yes, it costs more than the base Mac Pro tower itself, but isn’t a pretty picture (and the ability to edit 4K movies) worth it?
Right now, you can only use this display with a few machines. It’s compatible with the new Mac Pro using DisplayPort (Thunderbolt), as well as HDMI; you can also use the HDMI port on the most recent MacBook Pros for 4K mirroring. The LED monitor boasts a 3840 by 2160 resolution, and uses IGZO technology for lowered power consumption. Don’t forget that the Mac Pro can handle three of these guys at a time—if you’re willing to spend as much on three monitors as what you’d pay for a brand new Ford Fiesta.
