Hardware, Embedded Systems "What is great about this panel (except its resolution) is that it has an eDisplayPort interface (which is supposed to replace LVDS in the near future), and as this hack proves it is compatible with traditional DisplayPort outputs found on all modern video cards. The panel is also surprisingly cheap - I got mine on ebay for $55, shipped from China. Hoping that eDisplayPort is compatible with regular DisplayPort (I couldn't find conclusive proof of this), I went on to interface the panel with a DP cable." Cool.

If you look up ebay or Alibaba there are plenty of other LCD panels besides Retina, and I'd expect them to have HDMI or DVI ports and probably even cheaper.

I recall the Pi can do 1920x1080, I assume that's a max for the on board controller anyway.
