    Unfortunately not, it's a limitation of the adaptor rather than the Mac itself. It's because these dongles are often only USB Type-C spec rather than Thunderbolt - there's much less bandwidth on Type-C, so can't drive a high res display at 60Hz. Your Mac will probably support whatever display you care to connect it to at full refresh rate - if you have an appropriate adaptor ;)

    I went round this merry-go-round myself a while back and it's frustrating... If your Mac has more than just two ports though it should be a lot easier; like I mentioned, Thunderbolt Type-C to DisplayPort cables are quite cheap if you need to connect a 4K (or higher) screen. The Mac I had for work only had two Type-C ports and they had to do keyboard, mouse, ethernet, 4K display, and power - total PITA!

    A Wowstick 1F+ (which, when on the base, looks suspiciously like a much more adult toy).
    Mainly because I needed a Y1 screwdriver, which I could only source locally as part of toolkits that cost much more than this, and were much less comprehensive.

    Fat Music for Fat People volumes 1-7 and Mild In The Streets because I'm a dingbat and added the wrong thing to the cart, having meant to add Vol 8. But now can't be bothered to do anything about it.

    So over Christmas and New Years I treated myself to:
    • Dyson Pure Hot & Cool fan (refurbished)
    • Herman Miller Celle chair (refurbished)
    • Logitach Z533 speakers

    All are fantastic and I hightly reccomend!

    A "Dual Pole Mains Isolator" to go in at the same time as my upcoming "free" smart meter installation.
    My electricity supplier (E.on) want £98 to fit it, but that goes onto my next bill, which is currently £300 in credit, so *shrug*.

    This is necessary, as the people contracted to install my electric car charger refuse to darken my doorstep unless I have it.

    Well here it is. Coffee now inside my body. I have massive issues with my sleep pattern and sleep when my brain allows me to. So last night I took my sleep tablets at 11pm and was still awake at 5. By that time they've worn off, so I can't stay asleep. I also knew the block was there because RM carded me yesterday. Any way, I woke at 11, put the coffee on and popped down to the post office as you can see.

    It came with the thumb nuts and springs but there's a 90% chance I won't use those. I will likely get my buddy to machine me something that bolts it straight down with no springs. I kinda like the idea of not having any thumb nuts and it being nice and streamlined.

    FAO Jeff Hine. I promised I'd do this. For £35 you are not beating it. Honestly, spend three times that much if it makes you feel good but I can promise you you would be wasting your cash. This thing is lovely, made up of three layers. It weighs a ton too. Apparently the mounting thumb nuts and springs are rubbish, but I am going to get my pal to make me some new ones.

    The peeler stand looks to be an easy fix too. Nice buy.
