  • I have an old, Late 2009 iMac that I use all of the time.  Although it is obsolete in a lot of ways, I hang onto it.  It can run a lot of old software, including 32-bit software, and even some ...
  • Standards naming is slightly complicated. USB standards naming, especially – where each time the USB Forum comes out with a new standard, they come up with a completely new set of names for the ...
  • Which version of HDMI was the cable built to support?  I believe that early versions might have supported HDTVs, but not necessarily monitors with higher resolutions.
  • Between this and your mention of Thunderbolt 3, I think I can take an educated guess at what your situation is, and what happened.  Correct me if I'm wrong! 1. Your 25" Dell monitor has a ...
  • Applications have traditionally used pixel counts as a rough substitute for physical size, but that fails miserably with high-DPI screens. The UI “resolution” s an aid similar to 35mm-equivalent ...
  • Then there is the "Feline Accessory." This behavior is called "helping," also known by humans as "hampering."
  • If your MacBook Pros have USB-C (DisplayPort, Thunderbolt 3) ports, the monitor doesn't need to have two HDMI inputs.  One MacBook Pro could have a 6-foot USB-C to HDMI adapter cable and the other ...
  • There are many monitors that have multiple inputs – two or more, of some mixture of (DisplayPort, MiniDisplayPort, HDMI) – with input switching controls on the monitor itself.  So even without ...
  • 24" UHD 4K and 27" 5K are good matches – 24" UHD 4K is basically the Retina version of 24" 1080p, and 27" 5K is basically the Retina version of 27" 2.5K. 27" UHD 4K is a bit of an odd duck, since ...
  • We have standards for the construction of InterState highways and roads; standards for the placement and color of "Stop", "Caution", and "Go" lights on traffic lights.  Standards for the range of ...
  • It's not impossible - but it would be very, very, difficult. 1. There needs to be something in it for the camera manufacturers, not just for you.  If they perceive that it would not be in their ...

  • The DPReview article reported the time it took to process 47 MP, 61 MP, and 100 MP Raw files from four different proper cameras on a M1 iMac, as compared to time it took to process the same files ...
  • USB-A is a connector, which can support (1) USB 1.x ("up to 12 Mbps") (2) USB 2.x ("up to 480 Mbps") (3) USB 3.0 ("up to 5 Gbps")
  • You could move the drive mechanisms your current external enclosures into new USB-C or USB-A (USB 3.0) enclosures. If you want to be able to move external HFS+-formatted drives between your old ...
  • Some of the Intel-based Macs in the current lineup originally shipped with older OSes.  E.g., current Intel-based Minis date from 2018, and originally shipped with Mojave. All of the M1-based Macs ...
  • The "Mjesus chip?" Please stop using inflammatory language like this. Such language contributes nothing to discussions of which Wintel PCs would best serve the OP's needs, and serves only to make ...
  • Unless your broadband Internet service is much better than the service that most people in the U.S. have, there would be little or no advantage to 10 Gigabit Ethernet for it.

    Maybe the HP Z2 Mini G5 workstation (see previous posts), but certainly not the GIGABYTE box that the guy suggesting that you stay out of this forum recommended! (The more I see of that HP box, the ...
  • You can do better. As indicated in my previous post, the CPU in that box is not quite the screamer that you want us to believe.  An HP Z2 Mini G5 workstation with a 3.8 GHz, 8-core Core i7 10700K ...
