Right now, I'm rockin' a Dell U2412Mb from 2011. It's served me well for the last 7 years, but I think it's time to retire it. See, I got a MacBook Pro as a replacement work laptop, and holy freaking moly does that screen kick ass. 15.4", 2880x1800. It's amazing. It's awesome enough that I kinda want to replace my home stuffs with something comparable. I've got a 28" x 60" desk, and I'd like to try and put three highly curved monitors on it. Basically, fill every square inch of desk with screen. Here's the thing. The screen I love so much is over 200 PPI, and I haven't been able to find anything curved (1500R? 1800R?) that has a similar pixel density. Basically something like this but curved. Can you guys help me out?

Funny you asked. Philips just announced a new 34" 21:9 curved monitor at IFA this week, with a 5120 x 2160 resolution. Almost 5K, but it's a wide screen, so it has 163 PPI.

Not quite as high as that LG UltraFine 5K monitor which has 217 PPI, although that monitor was specially commissioned by Apple.

You would have a hard time running multiple monitors at that kind of resolution. I would aim for a single ultrawide instead.
