How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

Apple's Thunderbolt Display can charge compatible Apple laptops, and has built-in networking, making it a one-cable solution to dock your Macbook. If you own a recent Macbook with Thunderbolt, that may justify the monitor's $999 price tag. Other users are better served by more basic monitors that can offer similar picture quality for half the price.
