The last personal laptop that I have was in 2008, the
Apple 15.4″ MacBook Pro 2.53GHz (Late 2008). I used it during my university days. Since graduating in 2010, I have used my work laptop most of the time.
When this MacBook Pro started to spoil parts by parts in 2016, I threw it away and switched to Li Xiang’s hand-me-down Apple 13″ MacBook Pro Retina (Early 2015), and I have been using it since then.

HDFury 4K Arcana 18Gbps is a device that I have not heard of till I was Googling on how to get Dolby Atmos support for older televisions that don’t have eARC.
ARC stands for Audio Return Channel, while eARC stands for Enhanced Audio Return Channel. The main difference between ARC and eARC is the speed and bandwidth.

I have various HDMI cables from multiple gadgets, and I don’t even know what HDMI version they support. So I decided to standardize and future-proof all my HDMI cables at home to make them more uniform.
I opted for HDMI 2.1 because it supports all the latest standards, 8K@60 resolution, 48 Gbps bandwidth, HDR 10+, Dolby Vision, Enhanced Audio Return Channel (eARC), etc.
