My Apple 27” Thunderbolt Display was flickering on and off intermittently (running on my M1 MacBook Air via a Apple USB C/Thunderbolt Adapter). Turns out it was the integrated Thunderbolt cable – I’ve connected it using a seperate cable and it now works perfectly (the display has a separate Thunderbolt port you can use).
Eventually I may try to replace the cable properly but it’s a fairly involved job… (thanks Apple!).
So I’ve finally bought myself one of the new M1 Macs – my first new computer in nearly 10 years. I went with the 16GB unified memory model with 8-core CPU, 8-core GPU and 1TB SSD. Not very cheap but I’m hopeful I will get 5+ years of service out of it.
In an effort to scale back my collection, I have been going through my Apple Newtons. I have 4 OMPs (Original MessagePads) – two are dead completely and two are exhibiting the glitches expected from bad capacitors.
After watching the following excellent YouTube video I decided to tackle the recapping myself.
