The two BenQ monitors covered in Fstoppers’ article look interesting but their lack of Thunderbolt connectivity means they are of limited interest for use with our Apple computers.
Will we upgrade our Windows PC to something more contemporary, and will either of these monitors play a part in that?
Or will we stick with Apple machines given the wide range of macOS software already in use here?
