USB-C would be a better plug, and Apple wouldn't be in this position of having to change ports and make an entire ecosystem of accessories obsolete. c'est la vie

Get a PC and a monitor for a third the price and quit agonizing over overpriced Apple gear. It’s really simpleThere isn’t anything that competes directly with the 5K iMac, LG UltraFine 5K 1st and 2nd Gen, and now apple studio display.
