  • The Pro Display XDR and Pro Stand are already infamous. But here's what it's like to actually use them.

    Is tech stuff like this more for future planning/proofing? I don't think many people right now are able to view content that will be created on something like this, in resolutions anywhere close to what they'll be producing. Give it 5 or 10 years and 4K will probably be the bare minimum resolution for most media and devices. But right now, 6K, 8K, and HDR just seem so niche.

    $1000 for a piece of aluminum that costs less than a $100 to make. Ridiculous Apple.

    In Australia: Monitor ( Nano textured glass) $9,999 AUD....Bland stand $1,699 AUD.
    Both overpriced, bland, ugly as fuck "tech". Apple sure does know how to sucker the fan boys.
    By the way, did you notice how quick Apple was in skipping the stand price in the presentation? Not quick enough though. Plenty of laughing from the audience.

    The Apple Pro XDR Monitor ...... "IS UNBELIEVABLY SMALL".
    I was expecting the Monitor to be 50" and higher in height ratio also. What a let down. !

    What about cleaning and smudging the nanotexture display? Does it really need a special cloth or is this a non issue?

    $1000 for stand? $1000 for non reflective layer?

    I guess most of the money spent on the stand goes to producing the box you only use once.

    First time I am actually disappointed in Marques. He says "it is probably overpriced". He should be saying "it is crazy overpriced, and no amount of effort in design and ease and beauty, makes up for pricing it like a motherfucking asshole at $1000"....oh, and he should also say "Fuck creepy-looking Tim Cook for accepting this price and keeping a straight face on while presenting it at the event"

    Really looking forward to getting one myself and a Blackmagic eGPU to run it of my Mac Mini(which is more than enough for photography). It'll be a big win if this can take the place of a reference display as it would save me a lot of money in not having to buy one and in reducing the cost of printing. For reference: A print is about $100 each, so just 10 being saved from reprinting will pay for that stand if I don't want to use the vesa mount.

    The display is actually underpriced for its value....surprisingly by Apple. Alternatives on the same level cost many times more than this display. They should have just included the stand and not sold it separately...still would have been a bargain. -1 marketing team.

    @MKB - Is there a way to use OS 10.15.2's Larger UI (for the XDR) on my iMac @ 5K?
    ie. If I plug in a 4K USB-C monitor into the TB3 port? Will that give me the option?
    Or is there a keyboard short cut, to access the larger UI menu?
    I'd like to be able to use my iMac @ 5K with a larger system wide UI.
    Thanks :)
