Apple’s M1 Mac mini can be thought of as the company’s first M1 powered desktop computer. However, it’s not necessarily a complete system as you would need to provide your own monitor, but now it seems that some M1 Mac mini users are experiencing some weird display glitches when they do.
When Apple discontinued their Thunderbolt Display, many were wondering if this meant that the company could be planning a newer model.

Monitors come in varying refresh rates and they’re usually set to a particular refresh rate by default, but did you know that you can actually increase or decrease your monitor’s refresh rate?
Apple’s Pro Display XDR costs a small fortune, but then again, it is targeted more towards professionals who might be able to appreciate such features, as opposed to regular consumers looking for a new monitor.

If there’s one thing to look forward to at every CES, it would be display technology. This is because without fail, every year companies like Samsung, LG, Sony, and others show off new and exciting display technology that could change the way we use our devices, and give us new experiences.
When it comes to monitor mounting solutions, everyone has a preference.

There are people who choose to use a TV as a monitor for their PCs, but there are reasons why monitors are still preferred over TVs, such as size, refresh rate, response time, and so on.

When it comes to monitors, it typically does not discriminate between operating systems. As long as you have the right cable and connector, you should be good to go whether you’re using a Windows PC or a Mac computer. However, sometimes there might be some monitors better optimized for certain platforms, like LG’s UltraFine 5K display for Macs.
