    V7 universal dock for dual monitors M1?

    Hi, first time posting! My university are going to buy me a new MacBook and have offered either the MBP i5 or M1. After doing some research I think M1 wins hands down. I use two monitors and have read all the threads on using a DisplayLink adapter to get around the 1 monitor allowance. However...

    Just waiting on that 14 inch MBP, how much longer?

    Hello people of MacRumors. I recently graduated from a full stack web dev program. As my processing needs increase (I find my fans spinning up more frequently than ever), and as that endless desire for new tech that many of us feel grows, I am getting darn impatient for that creature of legend...

    MBP Running Hot When Asleep

    Hi all, I recently replaced my MBA with a 16" MBP. I'm having a problem with it running hot when in sleep mode. It doesn't matter if I just close the lid or manually put it in sleep mode. I don't run any heavy programs, the most I do is play The Sims 4 on laptop mode with a lowest settings...

    Cloth still necessary to protect screen from key imprints?

    i am working for a big TV station and almost all of our editors use microfiber cloths to protect the screens of their 16'' MBPs from key imprints when closed. On the other hand I talked to an Apple technician about this and he claimed that this is not necessary anymore since the screen coating...

    My home system has been a mid-2015 MBP 15" in clamshell mode with an old DellU2711 monitor, rarely using the laptop as a portable device.

    2021 mbp MagSafe vs usbC

    I’m curious what others thoughts are on the possible switch back to MagSafe. Don’t get me wrong, I loved MagSafe on my 2011 mbp, but I’ve actually gotten very used to usb c now and love that I can move around the house without needing to bring a charger because my husbands android chargers are...

    Why Apple might add MagSafe again

    MacRumors recently published an article regarding leaked MBP schematics which included MagSafe. This is just speculation but: One reason why they might add MagSafe again is because USB-C PowerDelivery only supports up to 100W. Maybe the M1X requires a higher wattage to run at full power and...

    M1 Stretch marks on the screen

    Hi guys. I'm always read the forums but never posted anything. I got an M1 last week. When I turned it off yesterday, I saw vertical stretch marks on my screen. I post a picture to describe it better. Does anyone have the same problem? Any clue what's going on? Thanks Nacho

I did check Sell Your Mac and those sort of websites, but looking at the price they are naming me I'm...
