MacBook Pro Retina to Monitor Interface

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I just switched from a PC Dell laptop to the MacBook Pro Retina. So everything about the Apple is new to me.....as is this site.

I would like to do some serious (I am not pro though) photo editing and want to use an external monitor with the MBP. I know the new 27" Apple monitor is best way to go with the MBP with the Thunderbolt high speed interface, but after the cost of the MBP, a $1000 will get me killed with the home CFO.

The folks on here talking about the Catleap and Crossover monitors with the A- grade of the same IPS LG display as the 27" Apple have me thinking about this path instead to the direct Apple monitor. If I understand I would need a Thunderbolt to dual DVI active cable adapter to interface with the Catleap or Crossover monitors.

Does anyone have any recommendations on which monitor and cable adapter would best fit my needs (mostly net surfing and photo editing) with the MBP?

Thanks in advance,

Mike
