I finally found !! You need to buy dp1.2 to hdmi2.0 (4k support) active converter like below. http://www.kwshop.co.kr/detail_view2.html?Cat=11&cate=306&stockno=15594 ($30) Older macbook air support only 1.1 so you can't use 4k but by this converter (+hdmi cable) you can use QHD 2560*1440 monitor that has hdmi port.

I found a way to do it with an old, white apple keyboard, haven't tested with others but it might work. I used a tool called Karabiner from https://pqrs.org/osx/karabiner/. When you install it, enable following options to get Command + F2 to work: F1..F12 to Functional Keys (Brightness Adjust, Music Control, etc) - F1,F2 to Brightness Adjust --- F1 to ...

My personal recommendation would be not to move the OS to external drive as you would have to carry it around just to make the computer run. I recommend: Move all the files that you only need slow access to but are GB-eating to iCloud or similar network location. (For example: iTunes Library, Photos, Movies…) Get a Thunderbolt drive for applications that ...

I've got a non-pro Aluminium unibody Macbook (2008), the first one with mini display port. It's 6.5 years old, and I've been using external display for 4 years. I unplug it once a week only, and its failing for more than a year, maybe 2 years: it is getting loosy day after day, showing artifacts or non working. You need to move the cable to get it working ...

I would not really be worried about the durability of the sockets. Both should be durable. However, I suggest you to use Thunderbolt as I guess you have 2 of them on you MacBook pro ;)

Since the Thunderbolt drives can run 10 up to 20 Gbps that is much faster than the internal drive in many cases. I do not see a problem, but can not speak for the boot camp it self. Here are some numbers: SSDs itself will have the same speed of reading and writing no matter the cable. The TYPE of cable/connection decides if it can sustain that speed, and ...

You can chain up to 12 thunderbolt devices of any kind. If you want to connect a non-thunderbolt device, make sure you put it at the end of the chain. Also keep in mind that Apple, for some reason, doesn't allow 3rd party-non-thunderbolt-displays chained directly after their own Thunderbolt Display. However it will work if another thunderbolt-device is ...

I have seen the static on the Apple Cinema LED Display connected to a Mac Mini Late '09 using mini-DVI to Mini DisplayPort Kanex converter. What helped me was the order in which I connected the devices after the problems occurred. Not sure what monitor and what converter you use and whether these steps would help; however, what I learned is that these ...

In the Network Preferences panel there should be a listing for thunderbolt bridge. If there is not click on the "+" button at the bottom of the left-hand pane and add it to both Macs. You can leave the setting on DHCP and they should both get an IP address in the range of 169.254.x.x. Make sure each is different. You should now be able to go into terminal ...

Any Mac that supports DP 1.2 technically supports daisy chaining. However, OS X does not yet support it. If you boot Windows on your Mac you will be able to daisy chain.

Yes, that looks correct. If you want some other examples, then take a look at the newegg site.

Well I swapped the USB receiver for the mouse to the other usb port and it seems to be working now but pretty erratically.

A Thunderbolt port can provide up to 10W. That's enough to charge a phone or a tablet but definitely not a notebook. A Macbook (Air/Pro) needs between 45 and 90W.

The MBP is not a thunderbolt device; it is a laptop with its own power source, and a thunderbolt port. If you need to replace the power adapter for your MBP, then take care to obtain the correct wattage.
