We recently saw a mysterious LG UltraFine 4K monitor that started selling in some Apple stores. Apple Store
Now finally Apple has officially put it on sale in its online store, it seems to be the natural replacement for the 21-inch monitor that until now I recommended for Mac users.
At AppleApple is selling a new 23.7-inch LG UltraFine monitor at the Apple Store
The new LG UltraFine 4K display is slightly larger than the previous model that was introduced alongside the MacBook Pro as an ideal external display for the Mac. It now makes the jump from 21 inches to 23.7 inches diagonal . That’s dangerously close to the 24-inch size of the old iMac, but far from the 27-inch size of today’s iMac or the UltraFine 5K LG display.
Indeed, it can also be used as an external monitor for the iPad Pro.
In Apple’s words:
This new LG UltraFine 4K has an exact resolution of 3,840 by 2,304 pixels. The IPS panel has a brightness of 500 cdm² and a wide colour gamut with P3 standard. In terms of ports, it has two Thunderbolt 3 ports and three USB-C ports with USB 3.1 Gen 1 to 5 Gbs speed. Remember that they have integrated speakers for stereo sound.
Another difference from the previous one is that it now has two Tunderbolt 3 ports instead of one.
What’s interesting about these monitors is of course their Thunderbolt 3 ports and compatibility with MacBook Pro. They bring a power of up to 85W , so they allow both to keep the display on and to charge a MacBook Pro while it is being used with the display.
The new LG UltraFine 4K 23.7″ monitor is officially available for purchase from the Apple Online Store and from physical stores. It costs ?749 and comes with a two-meter Thunderbolt 3 cable, a one-and-a-half meter USB-C cable, power cord and VESA adapter.
