Re: advice for an affordable monitor for editing with macbook pro

I have calibrated before and will used my friends calibration tools to do it again for a new monitor. I had heard before that Mac systems (laptop and mac monitor) are made to have spot on color profiles; but that was a long while ago. I don't even think mac makes monitors anymore so I'm looking to go outside of that. I guess if I need to calibrate it anyways, it wouldn't matter too much what kind of monitor I would need to get?
I'd like something that is about the same quality as my 3 year old Macbook Pro retina screen....or in that ball park.

I am getting into 4k video but it's not my bread and butter and I don't really need that as much for video although it would be nice. But a used HD or Retina would be great.
