Aug 7, 2009

Is there anyway to customize the multitouch trackpad on a MBP outside of the options in System Preferences? Specifically what I want is 3 finger swipe up to do the Mac equivalent of maximizing.. whatever that's called. The green plus sign

Sony :: How Is The Multitouch Trackpad On The New Z

Mar 30, 2010

The new Z is probably the only laptop that I would give my 13" MBP for. I'm glad Sony added a backlit keyboard but can anyone comment on the trackpad's multi-touch behavior?

Does it have two finger scrolling and browsing? Is it as smooth as MBP?

Apple :: Gets Multitouch Patent

Jan 27, 2009

Quote:

Everything you touch belongs to Apple

The glorious Apple religion has scored a key patent which now means that anyone who comes up with touch screen technology might have to pay Jobs' Mob shedloads of cash.

This is good news for Apple. For the consumers this is somewhat problematic.This might increase multi touch product price.Is this the end of cheap multi touch phones? Touchpad notebooks?

Apple :: Macbook Pro 15.4 Or New Desktop (Custom Built)

Nov 14, 2009

I just have one more question before I pull the trigger. Originally, I was looking to buy a new computer whether it was a laptop or a desktop. At first, my eyes were on a Vaio Z (P8700, 4 gigs, etc.....), Macbook Pro...etc...

The reason that got me to change to desktop is its performance numbers on paper. I already have a laptop so the new computer can either be desktop or laptop. In all seriousness, how much of a "day-to-day" performance boost will I notice by going with the desktop? (a noticeable enough performance to make me say..."wow it was really worth it to go with a desktop"? Day to day activities include opening many many windows including browsers, word/powerpoint, msn, movies, etc. Some more demanding applications will include photoshop/lightroom and some games.

By talking to a lot of people on forums, they keep on saying that for day to day operations, I won't notice any difference (I want the most smoothest experience, opening/alternating windows...which I am not getting with my laptop at the moment). Even for these small day to day applications, will I notice a difference in this desktop against one of the latest laptops? Honestly, gaming is important but not the deciding factor here.

I was also thinking of getting a premium laptop and then buying a Samsung HD240 as an external monitor but people said it will put great stress on my laptop (overheating issues...)

Apple :: Mac Trackpad

Oct 13, 2009

I have a Unibody MacBook (Spring 2008) and i'm having some major difficulties with this trackpad. It seems to have a huge problem "hanging onto" items I want to move. I have simply given up on trying to drag anything to where I want it. Take for example in Mail, I'll try to move a message from one folder to another and i'll click on the message and it randomly release it into different folder. It will only sometimes "pick" up the message and when it does it randomly "drops" the messege where ever the mouse is. This also happens with windows, it'll sometime take me 5-6 tries to move a window from one side of my screen to the other because the trackpad it will simply not grab the window to move it, and when it does it just "drops" the window a few centimeters from where I grabbed it. And highlighting text is completely impossible since it requires some form of precision.

Now this is not user error as what it might seem from the rather large trackpad. I have tried every conceivable option, from moving my hands completely off the computer while I try to do things with my trackpad.

Does this seem like a hardware issue or a software issue, and does this mean I need to get it checked out by an Apple store.

Apple :: Sluggish Trackpad In Snow Leopard

Jan 6, 2010

I installed snow leopard onto an external USB harddrive, just to test it out with my computer (macbook pro, 17-inch, not sure which year it's from, I've had it since 2007)

I ran into a major issue, the trackpad response is extremely sluggish (about a 1-second delay between the movement on the trackpad and the movement on the screen)

Interestingly enough, when I boot snow leopard on my friend's laptop (macbook pro, 15-inch, also from 2007), the trackpad responds just fine.

Apple :: Mac Book Pro 15 - Keepboard/trackpad/handrest Protection

Apr 12, 2009

I just got my Mac Book Pro 15" a couple of days ago & do love it! ( except I'm still adapting from my Dell I've had for so many years. )

& I'd like to protect it from scratches & spills etc.

I've once seen a single one piece of silicone that covered everthing, but I cant find it now.

I'm assuming its not available for the newer models.

I dont know if I'm crazy about the Marware's stuff.

I dont think this one even has the keyboard cover.

Apple :: Randomly / Rarely Jumpy MM (and Once Trackpad) Pointer Motion

Jul 16, 2009

I have recently noted that, sometimes (randomly and rarely for the time being), the pointer of my bluetooth MM (Mighty Mouse) moves farther than what I was expecting it to move. This happened probably in concomitance with the opening of some application (Iphoto once). In other words, it appeared to me that the pointer accelerated more than what I demanded it to move with the displacement of the mouse. It was not really a uncontrolled jump (as it sometimes happens with optical mice) but like a transitory but self-contained loss of pointer control.

I believe that a similar event occurred also once with the trackpad pointer when I went to the bottom of the screen to make dock appear in concomitance with a skype call launch....the pointer seemed to move fast to the right although I am quite sure it was not my finger to command this motion on the pad.

I have tried (with respect to MM) to delete and recreate the bluetooth .plist but it did not prevent from having this occurrence (note also that the batteries are OK).
I have read in some other forum, here in this site, that this might be due to OSX pointer acceleration (not perfect) management.

Dell :: Multitouch Trackpads Gestures

Mar 31, 2010

Dell lists the M4500, E6410, and E6510 as having "multitouch trackpads".

Does anyone here know what the gestures are, and can you list them?

I'm wondering if it's possible and/or worth it to upgrade to a E6410 palmrest when it becomes available to get the gestures.

I tried to install the E6410 drivers (apparently an Alps pad as well) on my E6400 but I didn't get anything new...

Lenovo X / Helix Tablet :: X230T Multitouch Screen Lost Sensitivity

Dec 23, 2008

The brand new multitouch worked for 2 days while I was setting up the laptop and my files. I played with it for about an hour tonight. The X230T was running on battery, I plugged in the power cord, and the screen became totally unresponsive. As insensitive as a school bully in a bridal shower.
 
Per instructions at [URL] .... -- I'm running Windows 7, 64bit -- I uninstalled and reinstalled the ISD multitouch driver, 7wge69ww.exe. No go.
 
The only input device that now works is the mouse -- not the pen, not a finger. 
 
Considering that my other X230 was sent to the shop last week (with a second dead motherboard in less than a year), I'm starting to wonder about Lenovo.

Dell :: Studio XPS 1340 Custom Cooling

Aug 11, 2009

I have over clocked my 9400mg geforce card and processor from 2.4 to 2.7, the system is very stable I guess i found the "sweet spot".

Anyway we all know xps 1340 heats up like a skillet. Im think about modding it in terms of cooling/fans/heat sinks... Im trying to find a copper or a better heat sink than the stock one. or maybe a slighty stronger fan?

Does anyone know any sites or information how to make it cooler...?

I dont want to buy a cooling pad because I think it looks adds extra stug the a very small laptop.

Dell :: Custom Wrist Rest For M1330

Dec 15, 2008

Just found this looking on ebay cuz my hand hurts from typing all day. Funny thing is, I didn't even include M1330 in the search.

[url]

This thing looks pretty thin and I'm wondering if it would even really help. It says "natural chamois leather feeling" but I don't think it would really reduce the contact pressure on my wrist. What do you guys think?

Also, would this leave an adhesive residue when it comes time to remove it? I'm sending the seller a message to try and clarify this.

Sony :: Vaio VPC-Z1 (HDD Option): Custom RAID

Apr 25, 2010

I've got the HDD option, which replaces the optical drive with a normal HDD, and doesn't come with proprietary Sony SSDs. I've been thinking about and testing RAID configurations, and this thread is meant to gather some thoughts on that. At some level it's probably easier to go the Sony SSD route, but... I prefer something else

There are two parts: (1) external RAID, (2) internal RAID.

Part 1: External RAID

I went down this path because I believed that there's only one SATA port offered by the HDD-option. From Intel [url], it appears that the port multiplier functionality is not implemented in the ICH8, which is what the Z1 comes with. This means we can't get two or more drives to logically share the same SATA port, which means that they have to appear as one logical device, which in turn means that some sort of external RAID/BIG hardware is needed.

I tried a number of hardware RAID solutions. The first was the Silicon Image SiI 4726, in a mini-board with a form between the 2.5" and 1.8" drives. Unfortunately, after configuration on a (old) desktop, the chip offers only its admin drive ("Config") to the bios and Windows, rendering it impossible to boot off of...........

Dell :: Custom-making An Aluminum Bottom Panel For The XPS 16

Jul 29, 2009

I ask this because it's semi-common on enthusiast cars with weak points: Would anyone be interested in making a custom, aluminum bottom panel for the XPS 16 with air holes and screw holes pre-drilled?

I imagine it would maintain/add rigidity while providing greater heat dissipation (especially with an aluminum cooler underneath) and provide greater air flow around the hot under-touchpad side.

I ask because I imagine this would be a fairly simple thing to create, since it's a single sheet of aluminum with hole drilled at precise areas, vs. some of the more exotic individually-made parts I've seen.

HP/Compaq :: Doesdv6z Artist Edition Have Custom Theme

Jun 27, 2009

Just checked the website cause I caught something at the corner of my eye as I was getting drivers for my laptop.

But does the dv6z artist edition have it's own theme? By the looks of this, it might just be for the website, but anyone who bought this have this theme installed? I'm guessing they used some type of software such as Stardock WindowBlinds or something similar.
