Hi all,

I have a Macbook 15'' 2017. I want an external display, of 27'', and as I'm used to the retina display, and as I need quality —I'm a frontend developer/designer— I'm considering 4K.

My question is: does it worths a 27'' 4K in a macbook?

I ask because 4k in a 27'' will display smaller, so scaling will be needed. And with scaling, the quality is not very good: https://bjango.com/articles/macexternaldisplays/

Whats your opinion?

Hi @gasaraki !

Yes, a Macbook 15'' 2017 can output 4K, but in a 27'' monitor the content is so small, that scaling is needed wasting the quality of the image. That means that this will not be native resolution. That's why I ask: does it 4K worths for a 4K monitor with a Macbook?
