    Used Thunderbolt 27" Display at OWC.com

    As I'm about to receive a new 2018 MacMini (6-core i7/64GB/1TB SSD) to replace my late Mavericks-gimped 2010 MacAir, I'd really like to find one or even two refurbished/used TB Display to connect.

    Why No Apple-made Next-Gen/5K Display?

    I just had this realization: Apple has made a 5K display for a while now -- it just happens to be glued to a computer (the iMac). Now that there's finally USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 available to pipe 5K video to an external display, why haven't they simply taken their iMac 5K Retina and made a...

    Cinema Display - Heat

    My Cinema Display is running very heat. Especially on left lower side. This makes greay smudges appear on left and some on right side of my display when hot. They don't appear while cold. As I could see, the hot air flow comes out on left lower side, but I think my Cinema Display fan can be...

    New Apple 5k display - should I be excited?

    I use the old -- let's be real and say very, very old -- Apple Thunderbolt display both at home and at work. New macs are exciting, but the rumored 5K display is nirvana to me. Of course, I won't be able to afford it, but that's not the point here. The best thing about the Thunderbolt display...
