    Flaco, sos un genio. Como te diste cuenta? Estube tratando de arreglar los problemas con el monitor en my Macbook air y ni se me hubiera acurrido que los USB ports tenian nada que ver. Cambie el mouse and keyboard de la izquierda a la derecha y problema solucionado! Un Argentino tenia que ser!

    11in fully upgraded early 2013 machine -- same problem. Screen goes snow, black, snow, flickers sometimes to black. At times I have to sit  and wait, sometimes minutes where I give up, unplug "thunderbolt" and work on the 11in screen.


    I purchased this machine to be able to work remotley and setup a desk station at home. This defect is more than a nusance. I will not be purchasing another Mac in the future. As for this one -- converting it to Linux Ubuntu as we speak. (and as the screen continues to flicker black!).

    I purchased 13" Mac Air for my wife thinking it might be time to switch all machines (desktop and 11" for my travels) to Macs.  I was within days of purchasing a 27" desktop as well as another Mac Air for myself when her's crashed-totally disabled. It seems that Apple has had these hardware issues for a while and have not resolved the issues.  Even though I have owned 2 Microns and 3 Dell computers without issue, I realize that sometimes "stuff happens" and can overlook  issues if they are resolved in a timely manner.  The Apple support has been terrible!  At the national level, they say it is a local store issue; the local store says there is nothing they can do except order new hardware, which they have done.  Parts should arrive within a month-maybe.  In the mean time, no computer. PC's may not be so glitzy-but, they work. That was close.
