                @21st Century MadMad And what I said is that it doesn't matter because apple isn't targeting them anyway

                Thanks, Jonathan. I'm a full time pro video producer and you are missing the point here. If you work on an incredibly bright and colorful display, you end up underexposing and under saturating your content, and when you send it out to the rest of the world, that does not have this screen, your content will look really bad. Also. This screen is still 60fps, which makes it impossible to game on. It's still too small at 32inch to make it a good option for investment brokers, and it is too expensive as the choice to go for in a graphics company. I personally run 80+ staff on mac, and it would set me back roughly 1mil USD to equip them with this screen and the lowest specs mac pro.

                  “Impossible to game on” what. I get that 144hz is the “new standard” but saying that it’s “impossible” is a bit of a stretch

                I dont know why you need that kind of pixel density and color acuracy that high when the output you share with other still cannot displaying like what you see in that kind of 6k monitor, coz only a few people will buy that kind of monitor ,if you in movie creation project that using imax screen and will produce blueray i get what you need that, but for just rgb design, design for prints thay you use CMYK, i dont get it why u need that kind accuracy.

                  If you don’t get it then it’s not for you, simple as that, for example pro photographers will be thankful for having this great monitor at this great price.

                  A $5,000 LCD reference monitor... Let that sink in. Why on Earth would apple in 2019 not utilize OLED technology for this extremely high end device? Like the panel they made is very impressive for LCD standards but OLED is still just better in every way. For starters you have better absolute color accuracy ( OLEDS can be made to support 100% of the wide gamut RGB spectrum which is miles larger by color volume than Adobe RGB ,rec 2020 or DCI-P3, better calibration tolerances with OLEDS ability to show an infinite contrast ratio, you have an unlimited variations of brightness and darkness vs LCD which is limited to the panels backlighting. A higher peak and sustainable brightness by a large margin ( large scale high end OLED panels can go up to 12,000 nits for peak and sustain 4,000 ). Greater power efficiency so the panel won't be as hot when pumping at full tilt and OLED display can be up to 3x thinner and weigh up to 80% less than LCD panels so the pro display XDR could of been 10 mm thick and weigh 7 pounds vs 1.5 inches thick and 15 pounds. It's just an odd choice for apple, you would think for a real creative professional who needs the best of the best they would not be going for LCD and with a nearly limitless budget the cost doesn't really matter since these people buy what they need. So if an OLED PRO DISPALY XDR started at $19,999 there would definitely still be a market for it. I just think apple confuses itself with what a professional vs an enthusiast.

                  And yes I'm aware of OLED displays potential burn in, while it's an issue it's not as problematic as people make it out to be. If you use your device normally ( not displaying static images for hours on end ) you will get years and years of usage before the panels is inaccurate enough to produce professional work.

                                    Within the realm of professional use, everything is overpriced, because pros can afford to pay for these. So yeah, Apple's pro monitor's price should not be an issue. It should be judged based on what it can do in comparison to pro products, and not your typical consumer products. But heck that $1k stand is even more ridiculous than those $1K audiophile speaker stands... at least the speaker stands come in pairs LOL.

                                        I think the point is that Apple doesn't offer any other "pro" displays in their line up for various other creative professionals that make up their user base. Ad agencies, design firms, UI/UX and developer don't need high-end displays like that. Why not release a 4k 32" monitor for the rest of the 99% users.

                                            But don’t let the case get scratched, because then Apple will tell you need to replace the screen, and that will be 4800$

Just like a semi-pro camera is not as expensive as the Red Camera. Now I have a good justification in case the wife asks why I bought it. Thanks.

Seemingly Pro level display tech for thousands less than other competitors. Think a lot of people were just blown away by the pricing but forget, this isn't a consumer level product. Same with the Mac Pro which tbf is pretty comparable to a windows machine with as close as you can get specs. Still though, their consumer level stuff is a bit overpriced.

                                                                          At the end of the day, tons and tons of film making giants like Disney, Warner Bros, Universal, they'll be buying these, people in the music industry, YouTubers, and anyone in the professional film industry, they'll all be buying these for their features. Apple doesn't care if the people who aren't going to buy them in the first, make comments on the overpriced stand and what not, because at the end of the day, people will still buy them... So people need to grow up and stop trying to get likes and go with modern social standards 🌈 and just let them do sell it. It doesn't affect most people, it's not like they changed something, or made something worse, they just added another product, that will extremely benefit certain customers. If you don't like that, ignore it.

                                                                            ​@Delain124 They're made for Mac's, as in Mac Pro's, Mac Mini's, and Macbook's. They have 4 thunderbolt 3 ports, which can be used for sooo many things, and not only for display, can reverse charge your Macbook too, all it takes is just one single usb cable from the display to your macbook/mac mini/mac pro, and the power cable.

                                                                            And yes, quite a lot of Hollywood and film making giants use Final Cut to edit movies/tv shows, which is why they use Mac's, and also Premiere which can run on Mac OS unlike Windows not being able to run Final cut. And another reason most film makers get Mac's even purely for Premiere, is because they can't risk Windows 10, for example windows 10 asking them to update every hour.

                                                                            Having a huge 32" display, with thin bezels, high brightness for studio lights, and just an overall great display with true to life actual factory calibrated colours which can directly plug into mac's is the reason tons of people will buy it, as well for not only being HDR but having extreme dynamic range with 2,000,000:1 contrast ratios and the fact it's overall a great display, 6k retina, with great viewing angles. For only $6000, and $5150 with the vesa mount. So major companies like disney, warner bros, and universal, marvel, pixar, netflix, all those hollywood giants will buy them for the fact it's only a fraction of a HDR bulky display. And for Apple's colour science being actually accurate.
