    How much RAM for graphics and music mixing?

    Hi, thanks to covid I am having a hell of a time getting my hands on the new M1 with 16GB of RAM. Do you think there is any chance that 8GB of RAM can do the job? I was using a very old 2011 Macbook for some 2d animations and photoshop and some Garageband stuff, and it almost never crashed...

    Optimal wallpaper dimensions for scaled displays?

    If I have a 4K display scaled to 2560x1440, what should the dimensions of my wallpapers be if I want the crispest background possible? Will 2560x1440 wallpapers look as crisp as the scaled UI on a 4K monitor with native dimensions of 3840x2160? Or should I strive to download 3840x2160 wallpapers?

Safari is having issues with a lot...

    Can the 2018 Mac Mini drive 4k+ displays?

    Hi all, I am guessing that the answer is yes to this question – but I still wanted to check. Because the 2018 Mac Mini doesn't have a very strong graphics card, the Intel UHD Graphics 630, I just had the slight wonder if it really can drive a 4k screen (3840x2160) or 5k screen over its...
