    Want it but my 2010 (I Think) is still working fine so can't warrant it for at least another year, perhaps when I start a PHD. The idea of that screen is very tempting though what I and I guess many others want is the option to buy a headless iMac and the screen separately, but Ill probably get one of the next gen just depends when I decide to do a PHD.

    Wow! I could open up nearly five Word documents at the same time and see them all at 100%, not that I could read anything because of the small font size, but what bragging rights!

    I'm just hoping this pushes Dell to provide a 5K monitor I can hook up to my mac pro (likely after buying a new video card, unless there's some fancy way to have dual link DVI provide that sort of resolution :)

    We only bought a full HD TV recently. Not that it really matters, as only two TV stations broadcast on HD all the others are still 720.

    Probably could find a 4k 24" for $1200... Maybe even 4k 27"

    David Hobby tweeted yesterday the insane corollary of a 5K display - you'd need a 24mp camera to make a native wallpaper for it without upscaling...

    Why is everyone so obsessed with 4k?
    Do you see pixelation on your current screens?

    Can't have a wall sized tv without an equally large bitrate to keep the wall pretty. Besides, if every household have upgraded to 1080p displays, players and content, how can the electronics industry survive without an upgrade path?
