Apple :: Has The MacBook Made The Air Less Attractive

Jan 31, 2009

The time is near for me to upgrade to a new machine. While this should be an exciting time, I find it more and more stressful as to which MacBook to purchase. I'm currently deciding between the Air and the 2.4 GHz MacBook. The MacBook weighs in only slightly more than the Air, and the thickness of the machines are getting closer to each other. However, the real separating factor for me is the display and the trackpad. I've grown very accustomed to a mouse button, and taking that away feels.. awkward at best. I don't know if I would be able to get used to that. The real separating factor here is the display.

Apple :: Home-Made Cooling Pad With Speed Control

Feb 18, 2009

well last night and this morning i was busy making my self a home made cooling pad, with some crap laying around the house. I don't know if there is already one but i'll put this one up. I will upload pictures tomorrow. The total project was about 1 hour and cost less than $10. It also has a speed control which is cool (it is built on my ac/dc adapter so you will make yours). My mother-tongue is not English but French, so excuse the words i might use or not use. Also their are some tools i couldn't translate the name, but when pics are up I'm sure you will know..................

Apple :: Macbook V Macbook Pro (My Short Review Based On 2 Hours At PC World's Stand)

Feb 5, 2009

To start I should remind everyone that i'm not a mac user. I have never owned a mac or used OSX properly before today. As such, my opinions should be taken as coming from someone who has much knowledge and experience as far as PC's are concerned, but who is a total mac n00b.

First Impressions

When I first walked over to the Macbooks I was quite taken aback. The build quality is out of this world. In fact, I immediately walked over to the latest PC laptops to compare and immediately thought "manufacturing FAIL". Really, the Macbooks are italian sports cars, and PC's are 30 year old farm tractors to use the typical "car analogy".

The Macbook

I really only had any interest in the Macbook when I first went to the Apple stand, but came away with the intention of buying a MacBook Pro. Let me explain:

The MacBook's build quality is awesome. It's solid, no creaking plastic or flexable build, completely and utterly solid. Awesome.............

Apple :: 15" Macbook/Macbook Pro With Integrated Graphics For Less

Mar 7, 2009

I have been speculating over this prospect giving the direction that Apple took with the starting price of the 24" iMac (upgrade everything else and downgrade the VRAM).

I mean, this is something I would like to see, but I wonder if it is a smart move on Apple's part given how much they make off the current MBP's with the so called Apple Tax.

And, if they made this move, one has to wonder if it still would be considered a Pro.

Apple :: Black Macbook - Light Up Keys On Macbook

Feb 10, 2009

I bought a black macbook this summer and every night when I'm in bed trying to do work I can barely see which keys is which. Obviously this wouldn't be a cheap fix but is there a way or is it possible to install the new light up keys of the new macbooks onto a pre-remodel macbook?

Apple :: Macbook, Macbook Pro Software Update 1.2

May 9, 2009

I downloaded this updated for my unibody Macbook Pro, and I think it's pretty vital. However, it gave me this error when I tried to install it: "You cannot install Macbook, Macbook Pro software update on this volume. This update requires Mac OS X 10.5.5 or newer." Now don't tell me that I have selected the wrong partition to install the update, or that I need to update my OS to 10.5.5 because I already have 10.5.6 and I chose the Macintosh HD partition to install the update.

Apple :: Refurb MacBook Unibody Vs MacBook Pro

Sep 12, 2009

So I'm definitely getting a 13" Macbook or Macbook Pro. Apple has some great prices on refurbs so that's probably the route I'll be going however I'm having trouble discerning the difference between the 13" Aluminum Unibody standard macbook and the 13" Unibody Macbook Pro. From what I've read they both have the upgraded screen, they're obviously both unibody, both have the large button-less trackpad, and both have the 9400m. They even have the same dimensions and the only difference I can see between the images is a slightly different case bevel (also the firewire and sd card ports, both are useless to me).

Unfortunately, none of the Apple stores or BestBuys in the area have a non-pro unibody 13" Macbook for me to actually handle and compare. So, basically, what makes the pro version with the slower cpu and smaller hard drive at the same price point worth it?

Apple :: Disk Image From Macbook Onto Macbook Pro Hdd

Jul 6, 2009

If I make an image of my hdd from my white macbook with disk utility onto a hard drive I take out of a unibody macbook pro will it work and boot properly?

I will do this by taking the 250gb hdd out of the unibody macbook pro and putting it into a sata external usb hdd enclosure, then making an image of my current 120gb white macbook and writing the image onto the 250gb. After, I plan to put the 250gb hdd back into the macbook pro and boot it up normally as if everything from my white macbook was just copied onto the macbook pro.

Apple :: Old White Macbook To Macbook Air

Aug 12, 2009

She has a white macbook with leopard I think, and has a separate partition in which she has boot camp, she uses specialized software that can only run in windows (doesnt run in vm). She got a new macbook air but wants to keep everything intact.

Do programs like duper clone drives with all files intact, including partitions? Keep in mind that the windows side is more important, installation of this software can only be done remotely from Russia, so it's a bit of a hassle if we screw up, we have to contact IT at a specific time and get them to do it.

Would I have to take the drive of the macbook air out? Or can i just clone to an external hard drive and then move that to the mba hard drive, in target disc mode or something.

Apple :: MacBook MB404LL/A Or Macbook Alu 2.0

May 3, 2009

I really love the black color of MB404, but is it good? does it crack easily?(is it plastic?)

Hows screen quality?

What do you think? which one should i buy?

I really wanted to buy Alu one before i hear about slanted keys and loose battery covers(i know %99 of them don't have that, but it's hard to risk when there's no way to fix it in here), because there's no Mac center in my country and i'm SO picky.

Apple :: MacBook Pro 17" (1920x1200) I5-540M Or MacBook Pro 15" (1650x1080) I7-620M

Apr 16, 2010

I've been looking at basicly two models, both got almost the exact same price tag here in Norway, so I'm not sure which one to go for.

The first ones is a MacBook Pro 15" with High-resolution 1650x1080 glossy screen, featuring the top of the line Intel Core i7-620M CPU the other is a MacBook Pro 17" with even higher resolution (1920x1200) glossy screen, featuring the slightly slower Intel Core i5-540M.

I don't list the other specifications as I don't really care about them, I already got a pair of 4GB 1600MHz CL7 (2x2GB) DIM's and a Intel X25-M 80GB SSD that I'll be using anyway.

There will be lots of movies and series played on my MacBook Pro, that's why I don't really considering paying a premium for the anti-glare screen, even though I love anti-glare and tend to struggle with glossy screens I don't see the point in actually paying more for it. And when watching movies and series, in often very dark rooms the glossy screen actually have some advantages.

The hard thing to decide here is slicker and lighter, with smaller screen and lower resolution, but better CPU versus the bigger, more heavy but featuring bigger screen and Full-HD+ resolution but slower CPU.....................

what the screen/lcd cover that fits flush over the LCD is made of? Is it plastic or is it really glass like they advertise it is? I ask because people on youtube who are posting reviews say it's plastic and not glass. I'd like to know one way or the other before deciding to order.

Dell :: My M1530 Made A Weird Noise

Mar 21, 2009

Alright the other day while surfing the net i noticed a strange noise coming from my laptop and I really didn't think of anything.

So anyway just 5 minutes ago while doing the same usual things like surfing the net, the same noise came out again. Just once, and it sounded something like this, DEEENGGG......

(i really don't know how to explain it) this sound appeared while my volume is muted. Anyway I know it's not the hard drive noise so i am a little worried but more so confused. I'm thinking is this an indicator that maybe the temperature of my laptop is hot that causes that sound

Acer :: 7720G- Installed A Second OS And Made Unoperational

Jan 11, 2010

I have got an Acer 7720G laptop which comes preinstalled with vista.

I haved made a seperate partition and installed "Open Suse" (linux).

Each time I started my laptop it would give me an option from which I could choose which OS I wanted to use.

I wated to get rid of Open Suse and so I removed that partition.

But each time when I started my laptop that OS selector menu would still come.

So, I have then delted all my partitions and created new ones.

When I have installed the "Recovery - Factory Default" to bring back the laptop to its original state - it did install windows but now I cannot boot my laptop any more because it still tries to bring up the OS selector menu (but fails).

I think here might be a prob lem with the Acer "Recovery partition" which I didnt dare to touch.

So I replaced my thermal paste and noticed that my hard drive was not a Seagate like my spec. sheet listed, 500GB w/free-fall sensor, but was an older toshiba model!!!!

This unit was a "brand new replacement".... so I just thought I would warn any folks who are spending good money and could possibly not be getting what they pay for.

Dell Inspiron 15 :: Can't See How To Boot From USB (made In Factory Backup)

I made a USB back up using the Dell Backup and Recovery/Factory backup. I can't seem to get my laptop to boot up from a USB, though. I've looked at all the options I see via F2 and F12. But I see no mention of USB as something it could boot from.

My machine is an Inspiron 15 7000 series.

Apple :: 13" MacBook Pro - 15" MacBook Pro - Processor Speed

Dec 1, 2009

equipping 2 machines:

1-a 13" MacBook Pro, primary use will be Internet and e-mail and manipulating music files. Will my husband really notice a difference/benefit between the basic 2.26 and the 2.53GHZ (and is it worth about $250 more)? If he uses it for video downloading will that make a difference?

2- a 15" MacBook Pro- here I'm debating between the 2.66 and 2.8. My daughter uses it for Office apps, PhotoShop, music, Internet and e-mail. Again, would video downloading make a difference?

Sony :: Intel Core 2 Duo Processorswill They All Be Made Redundant By Q1 2010

Nov 1, 2009

I am considering a range of Vaios at the moment (including some HP models; although Vaios are my #1 choice).

With the new Core i7 Processors out, I am wondering whether buying a Core 2 Duo processor of any sort (TT: SU; Z & SR: P9xxx, etc) now would mean they would be totally redundant by Q1 of 2010 or do you see some variants of the Core 2 Duo processor lasting a bit longer?

I realise technology continues to move forward at a rapid pace and was just curious about where Core 2 Duo stands in Q1 of next year.

HP/Compaq :: DV9535nr- BestBuy-made Recovery Discs And Crapware

Jan 13, 2009

I have a DV9535nr and I want to do a clean install to get rid of crapware. BestBuy furnished me a set of discs (at no cost unlike some I have read about) but will these contain the crap I want to eliminate? When I try to run the recovery disc feature and make my own from my hard drive it tells me a set has been made (yeah, yeah, ok ok MS/HP) so it looks like BestBuy beat me to it.

I ordered a set from HP to be on the safe(r) side but have read in this forum that these might not be such a good idea, either... bugs etc...

Apple :: Macbook/Macbook Pro

May 7, 2009

I am currently returning a dell studio xps 16" as its so sooo much hassle to deal with dell and the fact that i got 3 messsed up replacements in a row. i am looking to get a macbook or macbook pro. i would prefer a macbook pro (lowest model) although the cheapest method i can find is 1163 from the higher education store. is there any other way or place that sells it for less? apple seem to charge crazy prices for a low spec. een 100 would be expensive but maybe afordable. only discounts i found for the macbook/macbook pro are 14% higher education (the one i am looking to use) and 6% EPP and school discount. iv looked at the macbook but im going to use the laptop for movies, work and internet. movies on a 13.3" arnt exactly enjoyable to watch so thats why im looking for a macbook pro.

Apple :: Macbook Air Vs. Macbook Pro

Apr 27, 2009

I finally decided that i am going to take my desktop HTPC from home to grad school for movies/TV and playing demanding games.

So now I cannot decide upon which notebook to get -
the base Macbook Pro 2.4 or the base Macbook Air 1.6

I am going to be mainly doing work: taking notes, photo editing, and also some light gaming (2d games and old 3d games (red orchestra, combat mission) when away from apartment) on the notebook.

So I was wondering which is a better choice for me.

The macbook pro has a faster core 2 duo cpu, but the FSB and RAM are all the same speed. Obviously the 9600mGT is 2.5x faster than the 9400M, but I am not going to need it for intensive gaming.

Also the macbook pro has a larger screen.

But the Air is so much lighter and thinner, and would be a good thing to take to libraries. And it is 200 cheaper....................
