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) .
I just received my MBP 13" yesterday. So far I love it. However, I noticed an issue. Last when I put my MBP to sleep, it had about 30% battery left. However, when I woke up this morning and opened my MBP, the battery went down to 13%.
When I put the laptop to sleep, I had a pdf file open along with itunes (paused). I have never used Mac OS, so maybe I not doing something correct. Also, I noticed when I open the lid (after I put the notebook to sleep) it just goes directly back to the desktop as opposed to on windows it prompts to the login screen when waking it up from sleep mode.
I am looking into getting one of the new macbook pro's. Though I must say the non removable battery does concern me a bit. In past laptops I have had, I without a doubt saw increased battery wear and tear when I left the batter in the laptop while the laptop itself was plugged in. I completly destroyed a battery on my Dell laptop by doing this for about a month when it was asking as a desktop. I took the laptop which used to get around 4 hrs of battery life and then after a month it got no more than 15 minutes.
So after that I always took the battery out, so now with the new macbook pro's you cannot take the batteries out, so wont the batteries wear down to nothing faster than if you took them out when not using them?
I've run into this issue twice already... once on 1 computer and another on this same one. It's the one where the battery is not recognized and there is an "X" where the battery icon is.
I've done all the Software Updates, Batter Update 1.3, and tried resetting the PRAM. So far none of these have worked. Now I'm out of ideas. Before after going thru those steps, the problem would be fixed... not so this time.
I know they extended the warranty and were replacing the batteries for free, but not sure this one would be covered under that.
so with only 86 cycles my battery's at 80% health according to iStat Pro and at about 4450 mAh according to System Profiler. What's going on? I don't put any undue stress on it and just until 20 minutes ago battery health was at 86% (although that seems low too, isn't it supposed to go 300 cycles before it goes anywhere near 80%)?
And the last time I calibrated it battery health went down.
Hey i had a questions about the new MBP 13in that claims a 10hr battery. Is this the same battery as the 7hrs one or is it a different one. If it is a new and improved battery would i be able to upgrade my "old" MBP13 for this new one?
I'm new to OS X, got my MacBook the other day, and I can hands down say it's my favorite OS I've dealt with. It's so much simpler and just plain awesome. Okay, I'll ask my question before I get carried away...
So, I did some searching on Google after I noticed that my battery likes to hang around 99%. Apparently this is common. My question is, is this a BAD thing? When I see 99% I'm picturing that the computer is constantly pushing power into the battery so it can reach 100%. I mean, isn't that how fires start?
Simply put, is my MacBook trying to charge the battery consistently when it is not at 100%?
I recently left my new MBP charging over night and when I opened it in the morning it only showed 3 hours of battery remaining? Even at the lowest brightness setting it didnt go up any. Now Im at 92% and in says 2:20 remaining at the lowest brightness. Yesterday it was showing 5 hours fully charged, is there something wrong with my battery?
every time I'm running my uMBP from battery, I'm constantly checking the amount of time I have left and trying to figure ways to increase that time. Yes, CONSTANTLY. Whenever I can, I'm using the a/c adapter.
Even though I may see 6-7 hours left, I'm still not satisfied.
And just about every time I am running the battery, I'll open up Coconut Battery to make sure I still have a 100% charge hold left....even though my umbp is 7 weeks old with only 4 cycles...
I'm not even coming close to this with my 2010 macbook pro 13 inch unless I turn my brightness down to 50%, on reboot it defaults to 100%. This is when doing nothing or just surfing the net. I can get about 7 hrs, with my laptop screen turned to 50%. Any tweaks available? I'd love to know how Apple came up with 10 hrs.
i have a PowerBook G4 15' Aluminum edition, it gets about 1 1/2 to 2 hours on power saving mode sometimes way less depending if it stays on during the whole class. I was wondering if this was normal or if a new battery would give me longer life?
Has anyone ever replaced their battery on their ipod? I have a 5th generation 30GB Video ipod and the battery is terrible now that it is two and a half years old. I have seen a few different websites out there that have directions and sell the batteries... I trust I can install the battery from what I have seen on the videos but I don't know if I trust the battery some of these company's are selling.
