it looks like they have only a 2.0 and 2.4ghz cpus. That means no new Penryns in there. At best the 2.0ghz could be what.. a T7300? My guess is that it's a T5750 or maybe T5800. Yes? The 2.4ghz means it's prob a T8300 maybe? They should have offered the P8400 on entry level the Macbook, especially with the $300 price increase. I mean the $1000 Macbook has a T8100 doesn't it? So they raised the price $300 and put an inferior CPU in it.
For the Macbook Pro starts at 2.4ghz which is prob the T8300, or maybe even a P8600? The 2.53ghz is likely a P8700? 2.66 P9600?
I'm thinking of purchasing a new macbook with the mini display port and upon research I have gotten reall confused about cables that go into it.
The one I am looking at is the cheaper mini display to dvi-d, from what I have gathered it does not support a res higher than 1920x1200 and will not support a dvi to vga port, but what I am really worried about is will it support a dual monitor set up (one screen the laptop screen and a standard other screen that does not have a higher resolution.
So will I be fine with that port of do I have to buy the really expensive one to do so all these reviews have me really confused.
Once you get used to surfing the web and working on these Macbooks I find them pretty amazing. The 4 finger swipe where you can just switch between applications and screens is a really nice feature to have compared to having to move the mouse to the corners on Windows 7. For basic web surfing and switching between applications and browsers I find this feature really great to have
When someone walks in and you have something open you simply swipe 4 fingers up and your current application that is open just vanishes like magic 4 fingers back down and it comes back down again
How are you liking your 4 finger swipe feature on your Macbooks?
My friend has a 15'' unibody Macbook Pro. He's thinking about getting a cooling pad for it, and he asked me for suggestions. I said that I really couldn't advise him as Macbooks aren't built like regular laptops with the fans on the bottom. Even still, would a traditional active cooling pad lower temperatures by any significant amount, or would it not be worth it. I would usually advise anyone who asks to get a large all metal cooling pad, but if it's not going to do that much, I don't want him to waste his money.
I really want to buy a black one as I prefer a matte finish and it wouldn't discolor, but I want it new and I cannot find any here in Canada, so I will have to buy a white one. This is going to be my very first mac and to me it's a lot of money... I hope it will be worth it (I'm a little nervous about the switch) .
This notebook has been out for a while, and Iím sure the stuff I want to do now have already been done. SoÖIím hoping for some good answers, so I can pursue the things I want to do with my old trusty. Considering I donít have any other CPU right now, please leave out the pin mod option at this time. Iím trying to work with what I have right now,
First I would like to ďOverclockĒ the CPU (Pentium M 740), so let me know when, what, where and which programs youíve used to overclock this particular model. Will do the overclocking first, to see if I want to shell out something on a Pentium M 770
Now that the most important part of what I want to do is out of the way; would an x1800 work in my notebook?
It first started when I was doing a light activity (word processing). What happened was both CPUs shot up to 100 percent and everything became horribly slow. Left/right Clicking on an item or the Start orb might take 30 seconds or longer before it would work. Task Manager showed 100 percent CPU usage under performances, but sorting by CPU processes, only 10-15 percent was being used.
I restarted, and to my surprise, instead of the nice under 1 minute load time to the desktop, to took at least 15 minutes where both CPUs were constantly at 100 percent. Safe mode was also very sluggish, where I stopped non-essential processes with msconfig. So I yanked my HDD and did a backup just so I wouldn't lose anything. After a few hours of the 8510p sitting, I put back the HDD and the machine worked perfectly for about an hour, then both CPUs shot up again to 100 percent. Once the issue happens, it occurs everytime I reboot regardless of how I boot into Windows. After being powered off for 4 or more hours (or overnight), It might work for an hour or so and then become horribly sluggish, or it might start out being sluggish, too. (BTW, no viruses)
So I got on the instant chat with HP support and told them about my issue. My tech had me switch out my 2 gigs of RAM with another laptop, but that didn't fix the loading issue. He said it needed to be sent in, so I received my box last Tuesday. On Wednesday, I got a call from HP saying my machine was fine and the only problem was my battery was dead and that would cost me 212 dollars (I don't know where they pulled that number, because a new battery on their website is 109). Great, the time it would actually work for an hour, it works perfectly there. I told them that I didn't need a new battery (I pretty much use it as a desktop at home), but that there was some other issue. She said she would email the "advanced" repair guys to look at my machine...
Conventional wisdom holds that one of FAT 32's classical limitations is a 4 Gigabyte files size limit. I've done a few searches on the net, and I find this rule repeated ad-infinitem, without contradiction.
I recently purchased a 320 GB Iomega Prestige external drive that I plan to use interchangeably with my Mac and PC systems. To do this, I re-formatted the disk to a single 320 GB partition with FAT 32 file system (The drive comes formatted NTFS).
Yeah, I know there are work-arounds that would permit me to format it NTFS, and use it read-write on my Mac, and there are probably a few solutions that would permit me to format it Mac OS Extended, and use it my PC. I prefer not to use any "workarounds".
Here's my question.... I had occasion to copy a few files to the drive from my MacBook to the drive, namely my Virtual Machine files, that I don't want to use Time Machine for. I had no problem doing so. The two files exceed 4 Gigabytes handily, with one of them being over 30 Gigabytes! Oops, this can't be done, right?
I ask, how is this possible? I thought I had a 4 Gigabyte limit with FAT 32. Does the fact that I formatted the drive with my Mac give me some sort of advantage that Microsoft's formatting using the same file system does not?
I have read that the reason the FAT 32 files sytem can't store files over 4 Gigabytes, is the insufficient lack of storage within the allocation table for the requisite number of pointers required for a file over 4 Gig in size.
I'm going to pick up a bigger HDD pretty soon for my rev A Unibody MBP. Would I be able to use the old 250 GB 5400 drive in the PS3? Seems like a worthwhile upgrade. I'm guess since they are aboth SATA it should work, right?
what is a dvd ram? I know it is like a pen drive. so what software do i use to write to it? how do i use it? its write speed is 3x. how does it compare to the ordinary dvd rom? I bought a few Maxell dvd rams.
