Using 1 port for charging, 1 port for USB C external drive, 1 port for multi port to connect to HDMI (USB C Monitors not cheap)

Balance 1 more.

Unless you prefer to buy those external multi connects, then get 4 ports.

I had nightmare with the 1 port Macbook. HaHa

Get MS Office is you need to, you can buy the student version (one time payment) or normal version (yearly renewal), download from MS Office website after purchase.

Yes can connect external HDD

Adapters you can get any brand you want, i use Belkin

You can use any mouse, bluetooth or those with dongle

Just to confirm, AppleCare extended warranty can be added right before the standard 1 year warranty ends?

On the last day also can, as long not expired.

Connect multiple Bluetooth devices to one computer

The official Bluetooth specifications say seven is the maximum number of Bluetooth devices that can be connected to your Mac at once.
However, three to four devices is a practical limit, depending on the types of devices used. Some devices require more Bluetooth data, so they're more demanding than other devices. Data-intensive devices might reduce the total number of devices that can be active at the same time.
If a Bluetooth device doesn't appear in Bluetooth preferences, or if it becomes slow to connect or doesn't perform reliably, try turning off devices you aren't using or unpair them from your Mac.

https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201171


Erm so that means bluetooth speakers are data intensive?

Need some help here.

I setup my new MBP 13" with user mememe. Then use migration assistant to transfer everything from my old MBPR, user here is soonwai.

Everything went OK. I can use my new MacBook with user soonwai.

But I cannot delete the user mememe.

System Prefs/Users is unlocked. Logged in as soonwai. Both soonwai & mememe are admin users. The minus button is greyed out for user mememe.

Any ideas?
*
Set mememe under normal user?

Bought online education price, DHL sent over, no request for student ID

Many buy online using the education price and it's not a secret that many many do. Im sure Apple knows about it, and the price difference isn't that much, doubt Apple will even care.

Word.

But standby a student ID just in case if they decide to audit your purchase which happens but not very often. Worse case if you fail to produce one is that they will charge the discount to your credit card.
*
How would they audit you?

Actually for education can mean a lot of things. If someone home school then where is the ID?

For education can mean you use the Mac for learning video editing...etc

no choice, 512gb is a bare minimum to make the machine usable for years to go. If one is to buy cheap and choose 256gb and to extend the storage later, if to buy external ssd, the price is also around there.

I dont mind the storage, but regret didn't upgrade to 16gb RAM

Send for warranty and buy Apple Care

Btw did you do a Diagnostic test yourself?

Try do a SMC and NVRAM reset also

Which USB-C hub are you guys using?

Most of the ones I see are always missing one feature I want. They'll have 4 features I want, but 1 feature is missing...

I'm looking for:
1) USB-A
2) Ethernet
3) HDMI
4) Power Delivery

Also, this is the slowest MBP delivery I've ever had... ordered on January 20th... expected delivery is only next week  sweat.gif

Huh? So long? I ordered MBP 13" last week online and received it in 3 days.

As for the hub you are looking for won't come cheap.

With Ethernet , erm...you can try this one, https://www.elgato.com/en/dock/thunderbolt-3
