4K display or 5K display for Mac, and why? (Ports vs pixels, fight!)
I love the 5K display, but it doesn't work right is a docking station because of the band with limitations. 4K is smaller, but would give more and more variety of ports.
What do you folks
Not a Mac guy , but it seems like Apple has driven so many of these changes just on sheer mass of owners. One question for me is that of the inevitability of 5k. If so do you want to be one of the driving factors by buying one of these and suck up the current deficits in that interest. Or, do you think Apple is asking too much of the industry with this switch, and you will be stuck with a beautiful but less functional system?
I may just hold off for my holograph-producing brain implant.
It's really the same issue as before right? Not too many things can really take advantage of a 5K screen. Honestly, for myself, if I needed a 4K or 5K screen for work, I'd probably just AirPlay to my Apple TV since it's hooked up to my 4K TV. All ports free, plus a 55" display. If I had the money though, me being me, I'd go with 5K, because 5K.
For me, i would invest in 4k. Use that for 6 years and then upgrade to 8k! ^_^ 4k is definitely the winner for me. 5k just seems like the odd child. It requires a lot of bandwidth and you don't really see much difference. Thy both super clear. Its like having 512GB storage or 500GB storage. There is a difference, but its neither here nor there for me.
A lot of content is coming out for 4K, and to watch that on a 5K display in full screen mode, it gets upscaled and a little fuzzy as a result. It's the same problem I have with "720p" TVs which are not actually 1280x720 but 1366x768.
