It should connect, that is how I have mine setup and it works just fine - no complaints and no glitches or bugs with the display which is great!

Just FYI: I got same setup, and while being totally inconvenient, it actually works if you plug in both screens via the DisplayPort connector.

This question may be a duplicate. Try some of the suggestions here: How to force Thunderbolt-ethernet connection when switching networks without restarting computer? It sounds to me like an issue with connecting to your router. Try the suggestion to renew your DHCP lease under System Preferences > Network Preferences > Advanced for the Thunderbolt ...

Here's the solution that worked for me (YMMV): Turn off bluetooth Reboot your mac Put your bluetooth devices in "discoverable" mode Turn bluetooth back on You should be able to see / connect to your devices in System Preferences > Bluetooth now.

Its not possible to connect two displays through a thunderbolt connection however I believe you can connect a display through the thunderbolt connection and also a third monitor through a USB connection.

That symbol you see is the Mini DisplayPort icon (https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204149). Apple has stated that Mini DisplayPort adapters won't work in a Thunderbolt chain.

You could try a NVRAM reset by starting your mac and holding the following keys: CMD + ALT + R + P. (More info) When your Mac restarts, you could release the keys. Some say that you have to do this 3 times for the best result, but I can't explain why More information about a PRAM/NVRAM reset can be found on the Apple Support Website When you use ...

No. Thunderbolt is a protocol for combining PCI express data with DisplayPort video protocols. (i.e. super high speed - low latency protocol for display, networking, data and power transfer) USB is a serial protocol for increased speeds and backwards compatibility with USB 2.0 and 1.1 It doesn't include PCI express or DisplayPort but does have data and ...

A lot depends on the manufacturer of monitors. Clearly, Intel is backing this as the display technology going forward and Apple is also clearly on board. Using 4K displays and Ultra HD TVs with your Mac - https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202856 I think it's early to talk about what a 5k display means - so forgive me if you have a specific resolution and ...

It depends which MacBook you have. The cheaper ones only have integrated graphics processor (Intel Iris Graphics 6100) which runs from your CPU. The expensive ones have a separate graphics card (AMD Radeon R9 M370X) with 2Gb memory which supports more display or higher resolution displays. Macbook with integrated Intel graphics: Dual display and video ...

You don't need any cable to share files or share screens. Just turn on sharing in the preference pane. If you wish to make the sharing speed faster, you could use a network between the two computers over thunderbolt. The least desirable solution to me is target disk mode since one computer needs to be shut down entirely to enable that option.

You can do that, but you'll have to use Target Disk Mode in order to get the Mac to recognize the other one as a hard drive.

Bit late to the party, but this is what worked for me. Hope it helps: Download the update from https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1775?locale=en_US Shut down your Mac. Unplug Thunderbolt display. Boot back up, with your Mac lid/screen open (with Thunderbolt display still unplugged). Plug in your Thunderbolt display. Run the update/installer. Installer will ...

The 900MB speed is realistic, this is achieved on a few of apple's new mac offerings. An external Thunderbolt SSD would not be as fast, the only way to make it the same speed (or possibly faster) is if you have a multidrive thunderbolt enclosure running in something like Raid-0 with SSDs in all slots. The prior enclosure would be rather expensive ...
