Last night I dreamt that my daughter left for college, which will happen in a few years. It was devastating since I have sacrificed so much to raise her, which is my fault but that is the way the game is supposed to be played. I know that she will be gone in her mind much sooner than her body leaves. I will cope with alcohol, work, yoga, and golf. I still love making computers do things. I hope I can pay for her college.
Yes. A mid-2011 MacBook Pro running OSX El Capitan can drive a 2560x1080 monitor via HDMI. I was not able to get 60 Hz working. I am settling with 53 Hz. I tried many settings before finding something that works. The refresh rate seems fine to me. Maybe the text could be clearer but for a $200 monitor running this resolution, I'll take it. Apple MacBook 2015 retina resolution is 2560 x 1800. Consider buying a better monitor that may literally give you fewer headaches.
