    Hi there! I have a 2.7 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7 MBP (15", 2016) and I use a HooToo Hub so I can connect multiple external hard drives. For some reason, my external hard drives occasionally eject randomly with the "Disk Not Ejected Properly" warning. I'm obviously concerned about damaging my...

    Help moving on from early 2020 MBA...

    Hello, So I am usually the person that a lot of my friends come to when they need help picking a Mac and I consider myself pretty adept at being able to recommend the right amount (no more, no less) of what people need.

    Intel to M1

    Hey guys, I have a Intel i5 MBP Early 2020. Seeing the new M1s, I'm feeling kinda jealous. However, I don't want to spend much as I've invested enough in the storage and RAM of my current MBP. I did check Sell Your Mac and those sort of websites, but looking at the price they are naming me I'm...

    Hello to all M1 users, I have my Mac mini (16gb) for about a week now, and it is horrible. The Mac is connected to one 4K screen and one FHD screen. I am using Chrome, Safari, Zoom, Tidal and sometimes PyCharm and Xcode. If I start one or two Xcode simulators, my sound starts stuttering for...

    Considering switching to M1 Mac Mini from 13" MBP 2018

    Hi, I am currently running a 2018 MBP 13" (TB Base with 8/256GB) and it's so sluggish it with an external display (even 1440p along with internal) with just 8GB of RAM.

    Mag Safe vs Macbook Pro

    What about the better speakers MBP?

    Apple has transitioned MBP 13” to M1, but still sells the 10th gen 13” MBP models with the better speakers. What speakers do they now have in the M1 versions? And if the M1’s are so fast then why keep selling the Intel ones? Why keep the 13” Intel around at all?
