Apple :: New 2010- Model #: A1224, EMC: 2133

Feb 2, 2010

Can anyone tell me if this is a new model or old mid-2007. Cause some one I know thinks they have a newer computer that has this model number/ECM. Is that model # and ECM also for current systems or are they only for older ones?

Apple :: Office 2010 For Mac

Nov 1, 2009

Just a quick question:
has anyone seen what Office 2010 is going to look like? I know that it's suppose to have Outlook, but I haven't been able to find any legible screen shots or credible information on what the new program will contain or how it's different that 2008, etc. I don't know, maybe there's nothing out there except rumors, but I was just curious.

Apple :: Macbook Pro Mid-2010 CPU & GPU

Apr 29, 2010

We have all been curious about exactly what is going on under the hood in the new Macbook Pros. It would appear that Apple is indeed underclocking the GPU a bit, at least as reported from GPUz:

I also fired up CPUz and was pleased to the see that the i5 turbo mode appears alive and well, at least in Windows 7:

This is all from the base model, off the shelf 15" Macbook Pro.

I would love to see this thread turn into results from other new machines so download CPUz and GPUz!

Apple :: Office On Mac Is Getting Outlook In 2010

Aug 13, 2009

Microsoft better not be teasing me.

This is probably the biggest reason why I can't stand being a Mac only person. Outlook keeps me alive and isn't as nagging as a wife.

I might just start sacrificing small animals......

Apple :: 2010 Macbook Pro 15" I5/2.4 First Impressions

Apr 15, 2010

I don't have time for a full review because one of the reasons I jumped so quickly into this new notebook is that I am on a deadline. However there are a few first observations I don't want to forget about, should anyone be interested in a more complete review.

A little history first. I have been a Mac user for the past 20 years. I grew up with them, have been responsible for them in an IT capacity and have made a living generating content from them. I know the platform well. I am however not the type of guy to put all his eggs in one basket and also routinely use Windows, mostly for gaming, and Linux, mostly for serving.

The point is, I make my living around the Mac.

Purchase and Arrival.
I made the decision to buy after 6 hours of spec shopping. I called around to the local Best Buy (you never know until checking) and the closest Apple store, which for me is 120 miles away. Neither had them in stock, but they both at least knew what I was talking about. The Apple store didn't have an ETA, but expected them within the week. That wasn't fast enough for me this time, so I ordered directly from Apple. This was Tuesday night at 5pm. Wednesday at 2:30PM, I took delivery. Nice. The outer packaging was a plain brown box. Inside, the standard Mac packaging with nothing but the notebook, a power adapter, and a simple folder with barebones manuals and the OS DVDs. Good presentation, but not a lot of goodies............

Apple :: SSD And Optibay Install In Mid-2010 15" Unibody

Apr 26, 2010

I recently purchased a new base model 15" Macbook Pro with the firm intention of upgrading the main drive to a SSD. Historically, there has been some issues with a do-it-yourself upgrade to SSD using Mac hardware and I happy to report that I have had no issues, save those caused by myself in the doing the swap.

I decided the best course of action was to use a SSD for my main application and OS drive, and use a standard 2.5" mechanical HD for my files. The downside is, of course, you lose your internal Superdrive. However, as I was contemplating this, I realized that I rarely use my optical drive outside of software installs. It then became an easy choice. Of course, you can always just swap the standard internal drive for a SSD, but space and cost quickly become deciding factors. Keep in mind that if you plan to install Windows 7, you need at least 20GB of space just for it, before any other Windows software. Snow Leopard takes around 8GB and some of the higher end software can take gigabytes on their own (The Final Cut Studio suite alone takes around 50GB).

After a ton of research with some conflicting information I decided on the Crucial M225 128GB SSD. It uses the Indilinx Barefoot controller with 64MB of cache and is price competitive at around $325. The Kingston V-series is cheaper, but uses a modified J-micron controller (meh - sorry J-micron, too much history there). Another choice, and one I nearly made, is a Corsair series drive. Note that apparently the Nova series has some issues with the Macintosh notebook line, so the P series will be your best bet there. Of course, you could go for the gold and choose an Intel based SSD. Most Mac guys seem to have the best luck with these drives, but I decided I like the price/performance of the Crucial better..............

Apple :: Applications That Trigger Discrete Graphics - 2010 MBP

May 5, 2010

I just got my new MacBook Pro 15" (with auto graphics switching) and was a bit surprised that the discrete graphics card was always on... so I started investigating what apps might be triggering that! As far as I could tell, I wasn't running anything graphics intensive... so it was a surprise to me what I found out

There are a lot more apps causing this than the ones I listed initially... a more complete and up-to-date list can be found at this thread on MacRumors forums.

It's possible to know what graphics card you're currently using by installing GPUInfoMenu or gfxCardStatus, the latter also allows to force switching from discrete to integrated, or vice-versa.

Apple :: Late 2008 Unibody 15 Inch MBP Vs Mid 2010 Equivalent

Apr 19, 2010

I just wanted people's opinions on how they compare the two model lines, and whether or not they would make the upgrade. The specs of my MBP are:

C2D 2.53 Ghz
500GB 7200RPM HDD
4GB DDR3 1066 MHZ RAM
512MB 9600mGT w/ 9400m Integrated Graphics

Performance wise, I havent been disappointed with the laptop, but one of the main drawbacks I see in the machine is its battery life - Apple has taken strides in improving battery life over 2009-2010, and its kinda annoys me that I'm stuck with the battery I have now.

I commute a lot to/from school, work on the bus/train, and have to use my laptop in places where power outlets are not readily available (some lecture rooms). Realistically, I get about 3-3.5 Hours with screen brightness on minimum, wifi and bluetooth turned of, and doing some basic word processing, as well as reading pdf's.......

Apple :: 2010 13" MBP 2.4GHz. No Support For 3rd Party SSD Under Boot Camp

Apr 15, 2010

All those who have a 2010 MBP and a 3rd party SSD, please try setting up bootcamp and let us know if it works.

Has anyone successfully setup bootcamp on any of the new macbook pros? When I use boot camp assistant, I am able to set up the partitions. However, once I enter the windows 7 install, it doesn't detect any partitions at all (not even my mac partition).

I've tried both 32 and 64 bit versions of Windows 7 (home, prof, and ultimate). The SSD is an Intel X25-V 40GB

UPDATE 1: Swapped the stock HDD back in and bootcamp install seems to work fine. Partitions were immediately recognized by my windows 7 ultimate 64-bit. Could Apple have blocked support for 3rd party SSDs somehow with these 2010 MBPs?

Acer :: Confusing Aspire Model/sub Model Numbers

Mar 5, 2009

I'm trying to find info on an aspire... Not the model # itself as that is not the problem, but the sub model#...

The model is Acer Aspire 8930G, but the sub model # is 6963 and that is where my research seems to go dry... Does anyone have info on this sub model #?

Also i might ask is how user friendly is the 8930G for upgrades as for the processor and video? The current processor is the T5800 with the 9600m nvidia... Would it make sense to upgrade and what is the potential of this 8930G with the T5800?

Apple :: 2010 Macbook Pro - An Electrical "buzzing" Sound

May 17, 2010

I just opened my first ever macbook pro from its box. I've noticed immediately that when the unit is tilted in any direction, sideways, back, any direction, an electrical "buzzing" sound will emit from the components under the keyboard.

It sounds very much like the "zzzzzzzzzzzz" sound one hears as they drive by power lines on the side of the road....only toned down quite a bit, obviously. But it's definetly an electrical noise. It's only emitted when I move the computer, but it's already annoying...I hear it every time. And I move/adjust/reposition this laptop around allot.

Apple :: MBP 15" (june 2009) Model RAM Upgrade

Jun 25, 2009

I am going to buying one of these in Canada and will take the basic 2.8ghz model with no upgrades. I would however like to get 8gb of ram because I will be doing lots of multi-tasking and some 3d work in windows. Obviously I will not pay apple's crazy prices. I know you can buy "generic" ram for the laptop and was wondering if you know what ram I can use and if you know of any good deals? If I sell the mac ram and only user "generic" ram will my warranty be voided?

Apple :: Replacing My 15" MBP (2006) With 13" MB Or MBP (2010)

May 25, 2010

I currently use a 15" MBP that I bought in late 2006. I only use it for surfing the web and word processing. maybe watching a couple of videos here and there but no where near any graphics related tasks. I do not play any games on it (as I got a PS3 for that).

I am thinking of getting a new laptop with the highest possible battery life. it seems that the new 15" MBP does not "really" last for 8-9 hours even on light work, but the 13" does reach the 10 hours target. that is mainly why I have chosen to go with the 13" version. now I'm down to two options, the white MB and the MBP. technically, they both got the same price (if you compare both with 4gb ram). the main questions that I need people around here to answer are the following:

1. First, can the 15" MBP really reach the 8-9 target?

2. is there a difference between 13" MB and 13" MBP other than the material which they are built from? (polycarbonate vs aluminum).

3. is there a difference between them in wifi reception?

4. is it possible to increase the MB's ram memory to more than 4gb?

5. is the white case of the MB a 'dust magnet' ?

HP/Compaq :: NEWDV6 2010 User Review

May 31, 2010

Long time lurker finally decided to join, best to start of my post count with a lengthy review on HP's new DV6 line.

Id like to give people interested in HP's new dv6 line a heads up. This came about mainly due to the lack of reviews anywhere on the internet. Anyone with a dv6, feel free experience on the dv6.

Last weekend i purchased a HP DV6 3032tx with specs found here:

HP Pavilion dv6-3000 Entertainment Notebook PC series Home & Home Office

I went into JB HI-FI Australia buying a 13" mac and ending up getting this mainly due to the value, at a similar price as the dv6 was purchased at JB's cost price.

This has been my experience with the product so far

Design
The third generation of the dv6 line has been completely revamped by removing the numeric pad (I personally hate the num pads), and adding a nice chicklet keyboard with some quick launch buttons. One stand out factor is the thickness. It' still 30mm thick however the actually visible thickness is less than 1" thanks to some beautiful tapered edge design. The aluminium/magnesium shell with black keyboard is very mac like, and reminds me of HP's premium ENVY line of notebooks. On the i7 models only the palm rests and lids have a nice looking imprint finish which is very subtle and maintains its professional look. When the system is on, a HP logo glows white on the bottom left hand corner of the lid...

HP/Compaq :: HP TX2March 2010 New N-trig Drivers

Mar 4, 2010

Looks like HP have come through with the new 4-point n-trig drivers on the HP support page, version 2.239A.

Upgrade was painless and it would seem at this point that the following errors and their fixes have been implemented under Windows 7 64bit.

- palm rejection fixed, dual mode works like auto now perfectly
- pen support is very accurate and has no lag (still no ps pressure support tho)
- 4-point multitouch working and very accurate
- no more hot spots
- no more random clicks
- can access start bar with touch on desktop now
- calibration when changing modes seems perfect
