  • Uncommon Observations about the VESA Studio Display

    I have used a Studio Display with a VESA mount and nano-texture glass for a bit over a week.

    I recently purchased a MacBook Pro. I was eagerly expecting a seamless setup experience. The experience was not seamless. The good news is I have a working system. The bad news is it took a while to get here. I’m writing my experience to help others who may also be setting up a new Mac […]
