KidGloves said:So, so close... Looks incredible. I could put up with 16GB of RAM but I see this only supports 2 monitors. I need 3 with my setup. Doh!You may want to check the details on that. I run two external monitors on my MBP using a dock/hub. It might be possible to run multiple monitors using an external device that supports multiple monitors. May also depend on the resolution of the multiple monitors. Are you running 3x4k? Or will 1080 work?
What does this imply for Windows VMs and BootCamp? Like it or not, the business world is still dominated by Windows, and being able to run Windows is a must have for many people.
Apple dominates in the phone & tablet markets, and can support custom CPUs there, but do they really want to take on the desktop CPU world? Or are Intel & AMD saddled with lots of legacy cruft that Apple would be well-served to get away from? But I still fear becoming too divergent from the dominant desktop CPU architecture will end up hurting them.

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?
SpamSandwich said:It has a VESA mount, so there are plenty of alternatives.
I really have no idea who the $1000 stand is aimed at? And the perception factor is way off - if Apple wanted to reinforce the opinion that they are an overpriced, luxury brand for people with more money than sense, this stand will do it.
P.S. Perhaps for those in the know in the niche that use this sort of monitor a $1000 stand is reasonable. But the to the ignorant masses it seems laughably overpriced.
