[Tony West] "I have always liked the separation of the monitor and the computer"

Agreed. The trouble is that currently, it's hard to find any third party monitor that is reasonably color-accurate without a lot of fiddling. Nothing out there is as close or seamless with Macs as Apple's own (now defunct) monitor line. That's not to say they were totally perfect or completely accurate, but they did a better job of displaying the right color across multiple applications. It's a shame that you can't get a new Apple display, especially since they obviously still have custom displays made for the iMacs and laptops.

[Tony West] "I watch the clips of people who have cut big budget Hollywood films with X on that now old Mac Pro and I never see them complaining that the computer bogged down or couldn't handle the work."

Right now, that's only two films ☺ But in general, that's because they are either working with actual FCPX proxy files or externally generated "proxies" for editorial.
