    If you can hold out, I'd wait and see what the September 9th Apple event has in store.

    There may be nothing, but there's a possibility that Apple discontinued this monitor in preparation for a new external Retina display more like the 5k iMac.

      The professional Apple products line-up is so outdated right now, I really hope they announce a whole new range of products soon... So many people I know are in need of an upgrade and waiting for September.

        Yeah. I'm in this camp.

        Admittedly, I'll be incredibly worried if Magsafe goes away. That feature has saved my laptop a dozen times.

        Apple is investing a lot of time into pushing color management in displays beyond sRGB. They brought that technology to the 2015 iMac and I expect it'll eventually make it's way to the phones. If you want to hear a deep dive in this, Craig Hockenberry, creator of Twitterrific talked all about it.

        Also, if and when they ever update the Mac Pro, I really can't picture them saying, "Just go buy a Dell display."

          Right, it's now "Just go buy a LG display"

            Well yes for laptops, but they still haven't updated the Mac Pro. Can you honestly picture them bundling that LG display with a new Mac Pro?
