Wide colour gamut? IPS? Matte screen? Unless the answer to all three is "yes", then the answer to the title of this post is "no".
Game, set and match.
Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite only supports 8bit/color channel (24 bit color). This is absolutely ridiculous as good monitors such as Eizo and Nec support 10 and 12 bit/color channel.
For those that push photoshop to the limit, such as working on detail in shadows, this results in banding.
A pc with proper graphics card and let's say EIZO CG276 will deliver proper colors. I know that the EIZO is only 2560 pixels
