I would look at the pixel counts for the current iMacs since I've never heard of anyone that couldn't get substantial work done with the smaller but that most developers really appreciate the pixels of the larger iMac if they do substantial coding (6 hours a day or more). http://www.apple.com/imac/specs/ The lower pixel count is 1920-by-1080 and the larger ...

Caffeine is a small free app that can be used to temporarily override Mac settings such as sleep, screen dimming, and screen savers. The app lives in your menu dock, where you can click to turn it on (fill up the coffee cup) before your presentation, and then turn it back off (empty the coffee cup) after your presentation to set your settings back to normal. ...

The http://www.apple.com/mac-pro/specs/ says it is possible to handle 3x 4k screens or 6 displays using Thunderbolt. The website from DisplayLink (a party that sells USB display adapters) says: You will need one adapter for each additional monitor you wish to connect to your computer allowing you up to six USB displays – in addition to any you may ...

My experience is largely with either my old 17" MacBook Pro (1920 x 1200, 17") and 23" external monitors that run at 1920 x 1080. First off, the extra 10% of vertical space makes a huge difference. Secondly, I have found 1920 x 1200 to be fine, and it should be possible to get a screen at that resolution for your budget. Thirdly, if you can get a 1920 x ...

Pressing ⌘+F1 is the shortcut for switching between mirrored (same thing on both displays) and extended desktop (each display is independent) modes. Pressing that while at the login screen should sort your problem.

Solved it! I had to plug the adapter into my non-retina MacBook Pro, then hit the Auto button on the monitor. It readjusted itself and moved the image back to the center of the screen. Now it's plugged back into my retina MacBook Pro and working perfectly. So I guess it's some kind of weird issue between the retina MacBook Pro specifically and the monitor, ...

VGA is analogic, so you have to use Auto function of your monitor to calibrate it's correct size/position. You can also set it from the monitor's OSD control.

My Acer monitor lost the red color before. I found no answer to the problem. One day I wiggled the cable and the red color came back. The same problem and remedy repeated many time. Today I tried to move the cable to different directions without result. I guess I have exhausted the possible directions. But if you have not tried this, it may work for you. ...

I was hoping to figure out how to do this with the pmset utility (man page). I feel like it's possible, but I couldn't see anything obvious (to me) looking through the options. Anyway, here's another app that will do what you want: https://code.google.com/p/macosx-nosleep-extension/

The power adapter is required for closed display mode on any Apple portable machine, without it you can't use closed display mode. Reference: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht3131 There is however a third party solution, called Caffine. Which when enabled, forces the mac to stay on until the battery dies, it won't ever sleep. ...

I have had problems with third party video adaptors, so I'd be hesitant to try that. Since your monitors have DVI ports, I'd go with two Apple Mini Display Port to DVI adaptors and use an HDMI cable for the third monitor.

That looks like a hardware fault. Sorry but you'll need to take it to an Apple Store or somewhere similar to be repaired or replaced.

I finally got this to work on my 2012 macbook pro retina (although I hear that non-retina versions work too). Its a stock MBP with the Intel 4000 chip. I used SwitchResX and created a custom resolution, set 3840x2160 at 18 Hz using CVT-RB. Then rebooted, then opened up my display settings and clicked on 3840x2160 and viola, it works. No need for an ...

Duplicate question, see: Can I have multiple monitors on my MacBook Pro (Early 2011)? Any 2011 MacBook Pro model will support Thunderbolt. You can daisy-chain 2 Thunderbolt displays. You can also connect one mini DisplayPort monitor to the end of a Thunderbolt chain and connect your Mac to your Thunderbolt Display. A non-Thunderbolt solution if you ...

I am running windows 8.1 on a macbook air 2012 and the screen mirroring is working flawlessly (1920 X1080). The TV connects as a projector under devices and you can either duplicate, extend or display on tv only. If you really want the screen mirroring function you should install windows 8.1 which supports this out of the box.

10.9.4 purports to fix sleep-wake issues. I know on my rMBP (pre-Haswell) I'd have a similar issue after disconnecting from a Thunderbolt display, and it's been resolved since upgrading.

If you have an Apple Thunderbolt Display, then you don't need a dock at all. You simply plug the display into one of the Thunderbolt ports of the Mac, and use the display as the dock. It has lots of ports on the back - including several USB ports, a gigabit Ethernet port, another Thunderbolt port, etc. You can plug another Thunderbolt display ...
