OK. I was all set to purchase my new MBp, LG 5k 27" Thunderbolt 3 display, and Thunderbolt 3 external storage.
I noticed in my quest for info on 5k, and more importantly to me Thunderbolt 3 displays that there are very few offerings. Even on Apple's web site, the displays are not available at any store near me, but might be a special order. And then I saw this:
Suppose my plan for the foreseeable future is to pretty much stick to video and editing that will not exceed 4K.Honestly, as far as I'm concerned and my clients, 1080P is terrific still. But I will bite the 4K bullet to use in both a 4K project as well as using 4k in a 1080 Project.
With the LG 5K monitor, I get one more Thunderbolt 3 connection that would go into the MBP. That monitor is $1300.00US
What do I lose going from something like the LG above, to something that connects via Thunderbolt 2? I see those displays going for well under $700.00US all over the place. I am a bit confused about T3 vs. T2 when editing up to 4k video and performance.
Like a pregnancy, this process will be over as soon as I hear back from you and your smarter brains than mine.
Thank you. Jonathan
