    Laughing ATWTTB (all the way to the bank). Equivalent quality monitors cost $17k to $43K.

    Well, you got one part right. This sort of equipment is not for you.
    Can you please enlighten me & the rest of the masses on what makes Apple's stand worth $1000?
    The monitor I understand - it's very high-end with features most users don't need or care about, but those who do are willing to pay the money for - and it is cheaper than similarly featured monitors. Great. How does that comparison work with the stand? If $1000 is a fair price, what makes it so?

    Interesting monitor but charging $1000 extra for a stand is a real dick move on Apples part.   Sadly it looks like the marketing crew at Apple still hasn’t come to terms with the reality of the business world outside of their little bit of California.  
    It comes with a stand. This is the upgrade option.
    No Apple materials indicate any such included stand.

    Then maybe the $43,000 Sony option is a better choice for you?

    There was an audible groan in the room when they announced the $999 stand. Devs recognize a Pro display costs Pro money, but that much for a stand? Too much.

    The groans were so loud they threw the presenter(forgot his name) off haha.

    I think Apple should apologize and include the stand with the Mac Pro. Yes they will lose some profit but the gain in customer loyalty and Mac Pro sales will be worth it. They could also apologize and lower the price to $299 or something.

    But there is a display offering for that for $39K.... and yet we have a bunch of people whining about the $5K Apple display that exceeds the specs of $39K display?!?! Amateurs. 

    The stand being an exception, Apples pricing is ridiculously low. The "Apple is overpriced meme" is shouted by morons who don't understand the value of technology.

    My iMac from 2009 is still going strong after years of running pro software and I've seen studios running 15 year old Mac Pros.

    Am I the only one who's wondering which "Thunderbolt 3 hosts" it's actually compatible with?

    ANY? That would mean that it has an internal graphics card. But it doesn't look like it (too thin). 

    So then what are the actual technical requirements for the graphics card of the host?
    No, you’re not the only one. At one point during the keynote (at 1:38:40), they featured a MBP connected to one of these, and then two of these, but I’ve not seen any clarity on what are the requirements for running these at full specs.

    The current MBP tech specs don't mention anything above two 5K displays. But it does say "Thunderbolt 3 digital video output" ...

    Now it would have been really cool if the upgraded stand was also an eGPU case that could accept either a 580X of a Vega.

    I'm curious, I don't work in that environment but I do understand specialized tools. What I don't understand is continuing to put the ports in the middle of the back.

    I truly believe that this monitor is an excellent piece of kit for the pro-media producer market.... but I am so sad that there is not an option for us developers... or non-media producers... I hate using LG - there have been just way to many issues... please Apple!!!! 
    It is called iMac 27", a full computer at half the price of that display. Perfect developer machine if you don't need graphic professionals' gimmicks and whistles.

    Or, they know what they're doing since they're working at the most successful computing and publicly traded company in human history, and you're "Wizard69" on a rumors site. Just a thought. 

    Thinking Microsoft.

    True, but have you experienced the quality lately!? It WAS good, but now, today?
