Apple's 5K monitor is impressive and can get pricey. With these deals we've found, you can score some savings on it.
For creative professionals who need a monitor with serious hardware, the Apple Studio Display is our favorite option on the market right now. But like most Apple devices, it comes with a pretty high price tag, with configurations starting at $1,599. Apple almost never offers direct discounts, but if you're looking to get your hands on one of these stunning monitors, we've rounded up the best discounts out there from other retailers so you can add one to your setup for less.
The Studio Display monitor from Apple debuted back in March 2022 alongside the Mac Studio desktop at Apple's Peek Performance event. It has a 27-inch 5K Retina screen, an A13 chip, a 12-megapixel ultrawide camera with Center Stage and a high-fidelity, six-speaker sound system. It's Apple's most affordable external display in its current lineup and is now readily available for purchase from Apple directly or from third-party retailers like Amazon, Best Buy or B&H.
You can buy the Studio Display starting at $1,599 (£1,499, AU$2,499) and $1,499 for those eligible for Apple's education discount. You can also upgrade to nano-texture glass ($300) and a tilt- and height-adjustable stand ($400).
Besides Apple, there are a few retailers that have the Studio Display available for purchase. And while wait times were pretty long upon release, now retailers have some available for immediate purchase, with only a few models that are harder to track down. Some only have select configurations available, so check the retailer websites for what's in stock as well as expected delivery dates.
Amazon is one of the few retailers offering straightforward discounts on the Studio Display right now, though savings are only available on the standard glass configurations. You can grab it with the tilt-adjustable stand for $1,439 ($160 off), or a tilt- and height-adjustable stand for $1,899 ($100 off).
It's a small discount, but Adorama is the only retailer offering savings on the nano-textured glass model of the Apple Studio display at the moment. You can pick it up with the tilt-adjustable stand for $1,845, which saves you $54.
Adorama is also offering a $40 discount on the standard glass model with a tilt- and height-adjustable stand, but you're better off with the Amazon deal above ($100 off) if you want that configuration. Additionally, the Adorama Rewards program is free to sign up for and allows you to earn points to redeem as credit against future purchases.
Best Buy has nearly all configurations of the Apple Studio Display available to buy, but no direct discounts right now. You can snag four months of Apple Music and Apple News Plus, as well as three months of Apple TV Plus, if you're new or returning to any of those services.
You can, of course, order your Studio Display directly from Apple. There aren't any straightforward discounts for most people, but you can pay in installments with your Apple Card and enjoy 3% cash-back. However, if you're a student, Apple offers a $100 discount on all configurations at its education store. Additionally, most Apple stores offer same-day in-store pickup, as well as next-day delivery in certain areas. Be sure to check your ZIP code on the company's site for specific information about your location.
