    Hi. I bought a new 32" 4K LG Monitor and I really like it, except that my MacBook Pro fans go crazy when the monitor is connected and it gets really loud as if I am running a high-demanding app or something, even when I just have 3 tabs open in chrome, or playing a youtube video in 1080p. I was...

    MacBook Air M1 with 4K monitor

    Hey, I was thinking about getting a new external monitor for my MacBook Air M1. From what I can tell, the Dell P2721Q 27-inch 4K USB-C Monitor seems like a good choice. I would like to get 4K at 60Hz through USB-C, so that I can use the Monitor-MacBook as a "one-cable-setup" . From what I...

    Hi guys, I'm looking for a little help here :) I'm not quite convinced with the changes in the font rendering that Mojave brought us, because I use an external monitor LCD and it looks a little off even doing all the configuration changes that are "recommended" that supposedly "fix" this issue...
