    Hey Guys,

    As the subject states, is it possible my 2013 MacBook Air 13" can drink a 4K monitor? I've looked on Google and found mixed answers. I know Apple only 'officially' supports the 2015 models of MacBook Airs for 4k monitor support, but it looks like some people may have found a way around it for older models?

    If anyone could offer any additional information, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Asif

    Early 2014 and older MacBook Air models have older Thunderbolt 1 and DisplayPort 1.1 specs, and outdated Haswell processors with Intel HD Graphics that are unable to drive 4K displays, although there appear to be some partial solutions in our discussion forums that I have not independently confirmed.
