    have you tried to connect it to an external monitor? the reiviews of the dongle(HDMI) in apple store website says that it doesnt work on a 27" 2560x1440 monitor and works either on a 1080p or a 4K 30Hz monitor.

    and have you tried to connect a multiport USB on the USB port of the dongle to multiply the usb ports?


    congrats! what model did you choose and what store did you pick it up?

    Congrats! When did you reserve in BTB? I've been calling all their branches recently and they always say they do not have stock. :(

    We haven't tried connecting it to monitors--yet--but we have connected it to a WXGA (1280x768/800?) projector via HDMI, both in mirrored and non-mirrored modes in 720p resolution. One thing I noticed is that if the MB goes to sleep while connected under battery power, the HDMI connection is lost and getting reconnected is hit-or-miss. I haven't identified the actual cause for this whether it's the cable, the PJ, the MB, or some inherent HDMI handshake issue.

    I'll try connecting a USB hub...

    Happy with my recent macbook space grey purchase. I also bought the dongle for presentations and occasional usb use.

    If the files are in the cloud, there is very little need for the dongle to be used.

    Finally! My Gold Macbook is all setup and ready to go! Im still getting used to the keyboard layout but I think its better and more fluid than the previous ones.

    Here's my new apple ecosystem... (not in this photo: my iMac 27in 5k Retina 2015)

    Is that really a gold apple watch? Or its an aluminum and just reflecting all the gold-ness of the surrounding iOS devices? :)

    a gold AW would be really nice to have, but this one is the Stainless Steel AW with the White Sport Band. It's just the reflection of the other gold devices. Hehe.

    Any ideas on where to get good MB cases? I've looked everywhere and there seems to be a scarcity recently. a sleeve would do.

    Like hitme64, I got my wife a gray Cote&Ciel sleeve for the 11"MBA in the interim.

    Yesterday, my wife also got a computer bag from Halo, which I think is a local brand. She likes it because the MB fits perfectly and from the outside, the bag looks just like any other ladies handbag (she doesn't like computer bags that look like computer bags). She can actually even use it as her daily handbag.
