Upgrade to LG’s USB-C 43-inch 4K monitor

BuyDig is running a notable promotion on the LG USB-C 43-inch 4K monitor, bringing the list price down to $499 from the usual $600+ going rate. There are a number of reasons to make the switch to USB-C, most notably that you’ll be able to connect your entire setup with just one cable.

Both Amazon and B&H are currently taking up to $400 off Apple’s 21- and 27-inch Retina iMacs. Deals start at $1099, but our top pick is on the 27-inch 3.8GHz/8GB/2TB model at $1,899 (Reg. $2,299).
