Apple Pulls LG UltraFine 5K Display from Retail Stores

In the wake of various problems with the LG UltraFine 5K Display, 9to5Mac reports that physical Apple Stores have stopped carrying the Apple-approved monitors. They’re still available to order online but with a wait time of 5 to 6 weeks and no option to ship to a store. Perhaps Apple should reconsider making its own displays.favicon follow link

I would also like the new Apple Display Monitor in many flavors for the "Rest of Us" not just a Thunderbolt connection, a Mini Display Port, HDMI, etc.. etc.. and a Matte finish (instead of the cheep Retina finish), in different sizes and resolutions.
Viva the Apple Revolution for "Rest of Us" . Maybe a Laser Printer too..

Apple doesn't care about "the rest of us"!

It makes no sense for Apple to make displays since all the products they currently sell have built-in displays, except for the Mac Pro cylinder, which no one uses anyway.

Well, there's the Mac mini too. But more important is the fact that hooking a second display to any Mac laptop or the iMac is a huge productivity win, and many people do just that. Every desktop Mac I've used since 1990 (my SE/30) has had a second monitor for that reason.
