Your question has two parts: whether an rMBP can drive a 4K display, and whether any exist within your price range. Apple's support site lists compatibility between their laptops and 4K displays. If your Retina Macbook Pro is one of the 15" models, it can drive 60Hz MST displays at 60Hz through the thunderbolt port. If it is a 13" model, it cannot - you ...

Check this question out, looks like a similar question to yours. How many monitors can the new retina MacBook Pro handle and at which pixels resolutions? Also, more specifically this: How many monitors can the 13" retina MacBook Pro output to? Seems you need Thunderbolt and HDMI to do it. And if you're talking about the latest MBP 13" then you may ...

Unless it was a BTO (Built-To-Order), it's likely coming out of a warehouse or shipping container that was packed pre-Yosemite and those boxes aren't opened to update the OS. Yosemite is a free upgrade, so just upgrade the OS when you first power up the machine and there won't be any difference between your system and one that left the factory with ...

It sounds like it might work but in taking about target display mode Apple only mentions an iMac as supported. Target Display Mode Though they do not specifically mention a MacBook as supported or not. It is unlikely that trying it would cause problems (or damage), but I am unsure.

Something similar happened to me too. However, it also happens when I'm using it on battery as well. Hands felt tingling/numbing sensations and eventually burning sensation. Got blisters the next day. Had the unit returned and received a replacement. Replacement still gives me the tingling/numbing sensation after 30 minutes, but I have not received electric ...

Also I have this problem in OS 10.10 Yosemite and it's continues to give me the inconvenience, so I googled till I find the answer. Finally, I'm trying to do this: make sure that the TC is not mounted (or dismount it). Then in finder menu use Go -> Connect to Server. Type AFP://TCnetworkname or IPaddress (replace with the real IP or real network name). When ...

Here are some basic/standard steps you can try. Reset your SMC following the instructions here. Reset your PRAM following the instructions here. Start in Safe mode and try connecting USB. Other than above, and as improbable as it sounds, I would say you have a USB cable(s) problem. Try a brand new USB cable and if you have it without a USB hub.

A friend of mine had this happening to him after he upgraded to Mavericks. I managed to fix it by going to 'Network Preferences', then for the desired network open go to TCP/IP, and then choose 'Renew DHCP lease'. He had to do this for every network that his computer previously knew, but only once.

These troubleshooting steps helped me resolve this on one account: delete all pairing records in BlueTooth (Or at least all iOS pairing records) and then power down the Mac. disable the setting to disable "iPhone Cellular Calls" in the FaceTime part of the settings app. power down the iPhone 5 and start it back up. Don't launch any apps on the phone ...

There may be other options, but I’ve enjoyed using an app called Stay, from Cordless Dog: https://cordlessdog.com/stay/. It takes a few steps to save and edit your window arrangement, but once you set it up, Stay handles plugging/unplugging of displays pretty seamlessly. To set it up, you "store" window(s) for the current application, or all applications. ...

I would set Windows to be the default boot until the update is finished, to prevent it being interrupted by unexpectedly booting to Mac. I don't think it would hurt anything if it did, as the Windows install would simply wait until next time it was booted. I would definitely update Bootcamp before Windows, in case there is something about the existing ...

By no means a scientific answer, but when this happened to me, I eventually got round it by...

The problem has resolved itself with the update to OS X Yosemite. It must have been a Mavericks issue. I have done nothing to the routers settings prior, and have since been able to enable WMM settings.

Unless you already have install disks, I think the option to install anything other than Yosemite is gone (I could be wrong). Why not do a new install on a partition on your HD? This will let you boot to either OS. You obviously need spare disk space. To proceed you need to boot into Recovery mode to shrink your partition, then create a new and install ...

I saw this behavior and... you know what... it's really unexplainable. I don't have a root cause (obviously) but I did resolve the problem in this way (below). I also leave a note below but I am unsure if it relates directly as to why the finder started to show results when I would search. In general, my finder would not display any files when I opened it ...

Another possible solution, that avoids any sort of hacking, would be to use a USB-Y cable. These cables provide two usb connectors that plug into your laptop and merge to a single cable that's plugged into your external device, therefore pulling current from two usb ports on your laptop. Many external HD's come with these, they're inexpensive, and do the ...

Thunderbolt or USB hub You can fix this by using a powered USB hub. This way you do not have to modify your mac. This Belking 4-Port USB hub for example. The only negative, you need a power socket.

Well, seeing as the laptop is at least attempting to boot from the hard drive, I'd say that your hard drive is fine. My recommendation is that you reinstall Mac OS X. An early 2011 MacBook Pro would've come with Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, so you should have had some DVDs come with the MacBook Pro when you bought it. Use those to re-install Mac OS X 10.6. ...

A fresh OS install won't reset the hardware, SMC or PRAM. It might be well worth checking both those are correctly reset before going so far as a wipe & install. Reset the PRAM first - hold Cmd/Opt/P/R at the chimes & wait for the chimes to happen a second time. SMC varies per machine, Mac Pro is sufficient to power off & leave the mains plug ...

You ideally want both banks the same, this will allow interleaving which almost doubles the memory access speed. In computing, interleaved memory is a design made to compensate for the relatively slow speed of dynamic random-access memory (DRAM) or core memory, by spreading memory addresses evenly across memory banks. That way, contiguous memory reads ...

Try the migration assistant first. It will move everything you need from your old mac. (OS 10.6.8 or later) Many applications have data in the /Library/Application Support folder or the ~/Library/Application Support folder as well as prefeferences and other scattered support files that would all need to be moved.

I believe that ALL current Mac's with should run in Target Disk Mode for FireWire or ThunderBolt. You may want to verify this for your specific models since there have been a few systems that lacked TDM. Both systems should be able to run the version of Mac OS that you are cloning. And old version of OS will not always be able to run on new hardware. Very ...
