It means it isn't available in your region yet. You just need to give it a bit of time.

Here is the official link that says that you can connect a 4k monitor but at 30HZ, and on some setups (e.g. macbook pro retina late 2013) at 60HZ http://support.apple.com/kb/ht6008 Also, the support article on thunderbolt FAQ is relevant to what monitors can be driven at high resolutions: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3382#11

Absolutely it is safe. It has been designed for that, it does not have a locked in plug, but a magnetically coupled plug for that reason. I have done that on purpose or by accident (tripping over the cable) many times without problems.

Yes handoff is available for Safari in Yosemite and iOS 8.02, I just tested it. But it does not work with Google Chrome as shown in the screenshot (at least not yet and in my case). But you can use iCloud tabs on your iPhone. It shows you which tabs are opened on other devices, have a look a this page. It is for iOS7 but it works the same in iOS8.

Generally speaking the Apple Migration Assistant will (optionally) transfer applications as well as documents. How well that works with any individual application will be up to the application vendor. And that info may be on their web site. So it is theoretically possible to transfer settings, documents and applications from one Mac to another (ethernet, ...

What if you click while holding two fingers on the track pad? If that works then it might just be the setting: from System Preferences, Trackpad, you're looking for the setting pictured in the following screenshot. (Screenshot courtesy of wikihow.com)

As you said in the comments : Memtest is failing Apple Hardware Test indicates a possible memory failure This a clearly a bad indicator for your memory. The fact that a premium reseller is not taking your MacBook Pro for some obscure reasons would make me call a huge bulls**t. They have to take if it's defective !

Ok, I managed to boot to Safe mode using this: Access the command line by either opening Terminal remotely, or by logging into the computer using SSH. Use the following Terminal command: sudo nvram boot-args="-x" If you want to start in Verbose mode as well, use sudo nvram boot-args="-x -v" instead. After using Safe Mode, use this ...

I have a MacBook Pro Retina. I connected a 27" Asus Display directly to the HDMI port, and a 27" Samsung Display to the Thunderbolt port through a DVI to VGA adapter. I now have three displays stacked horizontally, with quite some nice real estate. Both external displays are 1920 x 1080 and have the Mac with Retina resolution of 2560 x 1600. You can do at ...

Best for retina = every on-screen pixel is represented by two pixels on the display More space = every on-screen pixel is represented by one pixel on the display. In between these two settings every on-screen pixel is represented by 1.5 pixels on the display. Because there is no such thing as half a pixel, the drawing is not exact so there will be ...

From my experience apple prioritizes quietness over cooling. I see my MBPr frequently reaching 95C on medium loads, if SMCFancontrol's stats are to be believed. You can use that app to manually increase fan speed and provide more comfortable cooling. I raised mine to 3000rpm from 2200rpm on my 2012 Retina 15". On a personal note, I'm very grateful for the ...

I found out here that the difference is very minor in gaming performances. Not to mention that the NVIDIA is a add on device while the Intel is integrated,resulting in more power consumption and graphics mode switching--that you might not want.

There are two likely issues afoot here: Your System Management Controller has gotten some corruption. You're seeing potential hardware-/sensor failures. To reset your SMC, follow these instructions: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3964 If that doesn't solve the problem, I'd run Apple Diagnostics and see whether it picks up on any hardware problems. If it ...

Based on this post and the other one at MacBookPro10,1 had problems booting, now some system images are pink and fuzzy : I would say that you're probably looking at a faulty logic board. The system should be taken into a Genius Bar or an authorized Apple repair centre for further evaluation and/or repair.

I managed to get full 3840×2160 @30Hz on my late 2012 rMBP (intel HD4000) using just a mini-displayport to displayport cable and an app called SwitchResX. The only possible difference is that I used the AOC U2868PQU 4K display which uses MST and I think your display is only SST. Anyway Here are my custom settings, you need to reboot the machine to apply ...
