    Can anybody type "nvram -p" in Terminal on new MacBook Air 2018 just to see what is the default parameters, especially if there any string called "AutoBoot" and any parameters for that? Because for now I'm in some experiment with this setting. For example, as you may know, "AutoBoot=%00" turns...

    Hey, I've recently noticed that my 4K Ultrafine stopped, yeah, stopped working (Mac is charging, but there is no picture on the external display itself) when connected to the right side of the 2018 13" Macbook Pro.

    2018 MBA Slow WiFi Transfers

    Has any body else experienced slower than expected network file transfers over Wifi? I have noticed transferring large video files (2GB+) from my 2018 MacBook Air to a Western Digital MyCloud NAS is 4x-5x slower than it was on my 2013 MBA. Very puzzling.

    2018 MBA vs MBP trackpad size

    If you compared them side by side, you will immediately notice MBA trackpad is smaller than the MBP counterpart. Theory?
