What's the best external monitor for MacBook Pro?

    The fact that I have the 16" MBP is actually the biggest problem, since no monitor can output the 96w needed. Even the newest Ultrafine 5k has a line on the marketing landing page saying that "for optimal performance, use the 16" MBP power adaptor". :(

    I would really love to get into a "one cable to rule them all" situation, but... seems impossible for now, I guess.

      The power output is not relevant unless you use all cores of your cpu 100% for the whole day. In fact 50 W is more than enough in most situations. On peak situations the MBP will take missing energy from it's battery.
