Best display for a Mac mini

Asked: Dec 19 2016 | 11:05 am EST 3785 Views 3 Answers View Best Answer

Hello,

So now with the Thunderbolt display not being sold anymore, and both the LG Ultrafine models not supporting the Mac mini and it's lack of USB-C and thunderbolt 3, what is my best monitor option? Do I just need to find a regular 4k monitor that has a displayport or HDMI port on it?

I can't even seem to buy the thunderbolt display refurbished from Apple, or what I would call a reputable online hardware vendor.

EDIT: I guess another important question is: Apple's site claims the Mac mini will do 4k at 24Hz. Has anyone actually used a mac mini to do 4k in real world conditions?

Data point: I run my 2014 Mac Mini (Iris graphics) with an ultrawide curved monitor, at its native resolution of 3440x1440, at 50Hz.

Unless you're really into high-end graphics for your job or similar, forget Mac displays. They are hugely expensive, and for a couple of hundred pounds you can get a perfectly good 24" Dell. Use the money you save getting your Mini uprated to SSD - fast? You won't believe it!
