As an introduction, I would like to briefly point out that there is no real difference between Thunderbolt 2016 and USB-C with the 2017 and 3 Apple MacBook Pro. You can find information and details about the modern connection in this guide. So if you only read Thunderbolt 3 or USB-C in a product description, then the corresponding display is also suitable for the MacBook Pro. Here are a few examples (some with audio output):

Adapters and cables for VGA, HDMI, DisplayPort, etc.

Not all displays have all connections. But if you are not so keen on only running a cable from the USB-C port of the Mac / MacBook Pro to the monitor, but can also use an adapter or an adapter cable, then there are many solutions for this. Because with various adapters and dongle solutions or a multi-use hub, you can also turn the above monitors without USB-C into a monitor for Thunderbolt and USB-C for the MacBook Pro 2016/2017.

  1. A little late on the article date but timely for me right now. I'm looking to trade my 2017 iMac for a Mini M2 Pro later this year. Spoiled by the 5K display of the iMac, I have so far set my sights on the LG Ultrafine 27MD5KL-B. But I wonder whether a current 4K monitor would not be sufficient. I haven't been able to find a comparison in a store yet.

    Is the difference between 4K and 5K on the Mac very big? Or is this only visible in a direct comparison?

    1. Well, you have arithmetically 25% more pixels. I think that's noticeable. But in my case, a 4K Ultrawide is better than the 5K because I do a lot of office stuff and the width allows me to put several windows next to each other. I wouldn't want to switch to a 5K. Depends on the use case.

  2. OK, that makes sense.
    After moving, I no longer have space for a second monitor and have to sell my Eizo CS2730, probably or through it. An ultrawide would therefore not be wrong. There are good 4K monitors, but they are close in price to the aforementioned LG 5K.

    Well, as always, not easy to make the right choice. I'll take a look when the time comes.

    Anyway, thanks for your time!
