There are plenty of ultrawide monitors available, but Dell’s UltraSharp U4919DW stands out because it’s the first 49-inch ultrawide monitor with a QHD resolution. It’s extremely wide, has a pixel count that tops out at 5120 x 1440, costs $1,699 but can be found for $1,349 on sale …
It does have some limitations, however, so be sure to read the review carefully. But seriously. For that price? Very cool. (Image credit: Dell.)
The beauty of our new USB-C docking station world (don’t say dongles!) is the flexibility and expandability it provides for our Macs. Targus highlights this perfectly with their new USB-C Universal Quad HD Docking Station that they were showing off Sunday at CES Unveiled. In addition to four USB 3.0 ports, an audio in/out port, and a USB-C port with 15W of power, this dock includes four (yes, 4!) HDMI ports, each connectable to a 1080p display. MacOS sees each of these connected displays individually, meaning you could just as easily have four separate screens for your day-trading delights as you could build a multi-screen video “wall” and spread your image across all four of them simultaneously. At US$275 this is a no-brainer if you need those kind of display options. A unit supporting four 4K screens will be out later this year, due to be priced at US$375.

Luna Display was introduced as a Kickstarter a year ago, and now it’s available for everyone. The Luna Display is a dongle that connects to your Mac via USB-C or Mini DisplayPort and turns your iPad into a wireless second display. Since it’s a hardware linkup instead of software it uses your Mac’s own graphics acceleration for improved performance. I’ve been testing one with my MacBook Pro and iPad pro for a while it’s pretty impressive. Getting a dual display setup without having to carry any extra gear when I’m travelling is awesome. You can get Luna Display at the Luna website for US$79.99.
