comment Should I upgrade RAM on my MacMini?
Look at the Activity Monitor app that Apple gave you. Older version shows pie chart for memory where you want to see a significant green slice; if just a sliver or none then you need more RAM. Newer versions show a "Memory Pressure" line chart. If rising high or changing to a color other than green, then you need more memory. Adding memory never hurts, may be a huge help, is cheap, and is easy. Buy from Mac-aware vendors such as Crucial.com, OrherWorldComputing.com.

It might help if you mention whether you have the model with the discrete video card.

comment Why do I have 2 IPv6 addresses?
You can read more about Loopback and Localhost. In IPv4 the loopback is 127.0.0.1. In IPv6, ::1 (0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0001).

comment Can I use dual 4k Dell P2815Q monitors on the Retina MacBook Pro (late 2013) with Yosemite at full resolution?
FYI: The underlying hardware is supposedly capable of handling 4K monitors. But I've yet to see an clear proof of the MacBook Pro (Retina, late 2013) actually working with 4K monitors. The Answer above is correct according the Apple specs page. But some of us wonder if that really is the limit.

comment Can I use my late 2013 MBP with Dell2515H?
@KevinGrabher Can you cite any sources or documentation on this? At least for the first one, MacBook Pro Retina Late 2013, 4K exceeds Apple's specs page though I've heard the underlying hardware may be capable. I would like to be certain before bothering to research and purchase a 4K monitor.

comment What is the maximum supported resolution of the MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Late 2013) for an external monitor at 60hz
That last line should add the qualifier "on HDMI". I believe DisplayPort through the Thunderbolt port will give better support for higher-than-HD resolutions.

That plist unload does indeed fix the problem. For me the problem occurs inside a Parallels VM running Mountain Lion, triggered by running Google Chrome.

revised Can someone clarify how many (and what types) of display the new MacBook Pro can use?
Linked page for specs has moved on to newer models, so I added link to archived specs page.

Those with the NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M may have better luck (but I'm not sure). This specs page says the card supports DisplayPort 1.2 including resolutions up to 3840x2160. I've no idea how that translates to the real world in a MacBook Pro.
