1. We saw more problems for Mac computers this month, some users could not use [their keyboard and touchpad](https://gitlab.tails.boum.org/tails/tails/-/issues/13576), and others [could not start Tails](https://gitlab.tails.boum.org/tails/tails/-/issues/13576). If you plan to use a laptop for Tails, try to test it before buying it.
