Apple :: MBP - Track Record For Hardware Updates

Mar 6, 2009

Even though the desktop refresh took quite awhile, it is to my understanding that you can expect a refresh with Macbooks and MBP's every 6 to 8 months, which should put the refresh sometime between 8 days from now (unlikely) to 2 months and 8 days from now.

Is that a likely assumption, or am I missing something here. And yes, I am well aware of the CPU speed bump in the top two MBP's, what I am talking about is an all around refresh, with exception to body structure obviously.

Apple :: Edge To Edge Display Really Glass

Jun 17, 2009

A lot of laptops now a days are sporting the edge to edge display, which imo is pretty cool lookin. I think Apple was one of the first to implement this in their notebooks so thats why I'm posting here.

But are these edge to edge displays really glass? I went to bestbuy to find out.

Checking out all the laptops from HP, Dell, and Apple, all their displays showed some form of flex when pushing on the center of the screen with my index finger. I'm no expert or anything, but glass is not supposed to flex at all.

Apple's notebook had the least amount of flex and probably is glass cause its so thin, whereas the Dell studio xps13 flexed so much it was unbelievable. I'm surprised this was not brought up in reviews.

Just to make sure it wasn't in my head I did the same thing to the imacs, and those screens were rock solid. Without a doubt are covered in glass.

So whats you're take on Apple's notebook? Glass or not?

Apple :: Bootcamp

May 23, 2009

I Just popped in a new hardrive and all was well. Finally had enough space to have bootcamp and mac osx.

I installed osx no problem, then used bootcamp assistant and made a 80gig partition. Installed XP Pro but then and all was well. Had some problems with XP and needed to reinstall. Only this time when I erased the partition and re did it when I go to XP install I see one partition, and its 127 gig. Confused I put it on that partition and Mac OSX was gone, it would no longer boot.

So I reinstalled OSX and tried bootcamp assistant and made an 80gig partition. But once again when I get into XP install all I see is a a 127gig partition and it won't let me create a new partition.

Now I have a 300gig and disk utility sees that it is a 300gig, but says that it has 127 gig free, and 448MB used... Very odd... Also it will no longer let me partition or format the drives. This is bad.

I downloaded UBCD and it also will see that the HDD Size is 300gig, but again it is showing that 127gig free and only 448mb used. I really don't want to call apple on this.

Apple :: Backup Of Bootcamp

Dec 21, 2009

I've tried disk utility to create an image of it; it won't boot after this and once the bootcamp wizard has been run, still doesn't recognise that an os is on the partition.

Also tried Winclone; of which has to have exactly the same partition size as previous otherwise it doesn't work properly.

Can anyone suggest something like symantec ghost or osx equiv? Same for backing up osx partition; want something that I can just restore if needed. Used CCC but for some reason cannot get it to not keep all my previous files, so when restoring it also restores all deleted files too.

Apple :: Mac - Bootcamp/vmware

Jun 29, 2009

I have been looking for a new computer and am looking at the mac book pro since it is 13 inches now something I like. I have a few questions though regarding bootcamp and Vmware.

So say I install windows xp via bootcamp. Can I still view files that I had on my mac partition or does apple not allow that to happen.

Second question:
Say I install xp via bootcamp. Can I run it with Vmware too or do i have to have a fresh install just for Vmware?

Lastly, what do you like more bootcamp, vmware or parallel?

I am currently a windows user ever since I started using computers so I do not have much knowledge with macs.

Apple :: New Macbook Pro - Bootcamp

Jun 26, 2009

My new notebook might just be a macbook pro. But I'll also really really need Windows for some stuff. So that's bootcamp then. But I heard there might be several problems. Especially with the multitouch trackpad (not being able to tap to click, right-click, (right)drag. Is that still an issue?

Also, is all the hardware fully available under windows? Like the graphics card and the DVD burner?

Apple :: Bootcamp AND Parallels

Jun 27, 2009

I have boot camp installed on my Mac, and it runs good enough for me. However, I hate having to restart my comp to just use word or something easy like that. So can I run VMWares, or Parallels on a pre made bootcamp drive? Like it will already have my Vista loaded, my word, my installs and updates and Virsu protection? If so that would be a great help to me. And If I do, how much RAM should I dedicate to it?

Apple :: X-25m BootCamp Woes

Jan 29, 2009

I just treated myself to a sweet new Solid State Drive but boot camp apparently does not like the new intel ssd drives. Is there any viable work around for this? Lovin my new mac, but bootcamp was fun for lan parties and such... I hear an EFI firmware might be in order, but in the mean time any alternative would be useful. I find the myself using OSX way more often than windows, and if not for gaming would prob convert most of my machines. Sorry if this is a dupe thread, but i've been searching the net days for info on this.

These drives are going to be popular, i hope other future ssd drives don't have issues with these new nvidia based macs.

Apple :: Bootcamp, Can't Create A New Partition

Aug 13, 2009

I want to install windows by Bootcamp. But I've found some problem about a partition on my HDD.

My MacbookPro HDD has 27 GB free space remain. And it's has only 1 partition on HDD. I try to create a new partition, 10-15 GB on my HDD for Bootcamp. I just want to run windows for some program, some games. But it always show "verification failed", "don't have enough space", "partition failed"...etc. on bootcamp and disk utility

I've seen some thread about a partition for bootcamp problem on some website. Some solution such as

1. use iDefrag for HDD then try to create a new partition.

2. Shrink your HDD space (disk utility) , revert , then try to create a new partition by Bootcamp.

3. Try to remove some files, that size is over 1 GB, then try to make a new partition.

4. Backup your harddrive, reinstall then try to create a new partition (I don't want to do this)...

Apple :: Bootcamp: Windows 7 Batterylife Vs. XP

Jul 25, 2009

I just installed Windows 7 on my MBP 13". Seems like battery life is a little shorter, about 4:37 max, while I got just over 5:00 hours in XP.

Is this consistent with what other people found?

I'm considering going back to XP.

Apple :: Shrinking Bootcamp Partition

Apr 17, 2009

When i created my Bootcamp partition i mde it way too big and i will never use all the space i created. Is there a way to shrink it without losing what i have on that partition?
I tried to shrink it using Winclone but that did not work and if i create a backup using Winclone i believe that when you restore it the partition must be the same size as the original, is this correct?
