    I never understood the point of 27 inch 4k monitors. You have to upscale your UI and thus don't have more space to work on than you had on the 1080 screen.

      Well OSX handles hi-res monitors very well, there is a performance hit on some scalings, but you end up with crips text.

      Sometimes I need more space (eg. designing desktop apps), so I use a bigger resolution, sometimes I need bigger content, so I scale to a lower resolution. It depends of my needs, and I want that flexibility :) With a full HD, you stick with that resolution only.

      I don't think it's about having more space necessarily—just having higher pixel density looks nicer?
