I told you workplaces have started giving their devs M1 Pro laptops, didn't I? I am not a Jedi so I cannot alter your boss' mind. Already...

Talk to your boss. If I were you boss, I would approve a M1 Max laptop for you.

If you have a 2019 MBP, you are normally not due for a new laptop yet. It may not be a bad thing. By the time you are really due for a new...

Agreed with ATangk, why does it matter? FYI... some workplaces have started supplying developers with M1 Pro MBP 16 inch. M1 Max and/or...

MBP 16" M1 Pro is different to MBPM1. Furthermore, MBP 16" M1 pro, no MST support. MagSafe allows you to avoid the USB-PD passthrough on...

"Compatible" yes, but Mac does not support USB-C/MST so single display. Only the 5 in 1 supports 4K/60Hz.

More problems in the future with USB-C/USB 4.0 DP 2.0 standard announced. Current Thunderbolt 4 devices are all DP 1.4 based devices, so...

It's not a bandwidth problem (for M1 at least), it is the weak / limited embedded GPU issue.
26/05/2022 - 14:10
No, I am saying, one cable dream is only feasible for more expensive equipments (and/or newer equipments): - M1 Pro or better on the Mac...

Dell locking the app to Ultrasharp monitors isn't nice. The app is in beta anyway. That app isn't a big deal, the really useful adjustments...

OP, no he didn't get a copy. All gone in VIC, he was confirming he got the same message from EB CSR.
26/05/2022 - 13:45
You helped other people. People like me who decided not to compete with other OZBers on this one. Also, help people who are still trying to...
26/05/2022 - 13:44
I'll be blunt, that setup poses multiple challenges for both the Mac and the Windows laptop. You get to experience the dark side of USB-C...

DisplayLink is the only workaround. However, the cheapest DisplayLink dongle deal from OZB was nearly 2 years ago and any decent...

The USB-C model (S2721QC) is a real pain if you have multiple devices, especially if you have both Intel Macs and M1 Macs. Gets worse if...

Problem is, Samsung knows USB 3.2 gen 2 too well. Samsung knows it cannot even reach PCIe gen 3 x2. So, Samsung put in just enough to numb...

Where and which one? You know OZBers who scored one or more of these will factor in at least that $20 Steam card and count this as a $24...

Go to Apple store and see if they are willing to still do some sort of warranty for you. They did for me and a friend of mine.
25/05/2022 - 14:41
Need to check with people who managed to get one (or some). Suspect black might also had a price drop initially. It seems like Amazon AU...
