Dell :: Xps 16 Can Beat Which Model Of New Apple Imac

Dec 2, 2009

I just got SXPS 16 with the specs below

i7 820Qm
4GB 500GB 7200
Bluray rom
ATI 4670 1GB

And I plan to buy an imac to be my powerful Desktop or in case my Laptop stops working sometimes.

I need one more powerful than my Dell (If less I dont know why I have to buy a Desktop anyway)

I know i7 2.8Ghz quad core with hyper threading and Ati 4850 512 GB model from new Imac will beat My Dell badly but How about i5 model with ATI 4850 512 or Core 2 3.33 E8600 (if I got it right) with ATI 4670 256 GB?

Apple :: Pro Audio Beat Mapping

Aug 3, 2009

For Logic Pro users... I know I can beat map an audio track using the global tracks beat mapping grid that appears by clicking analyse. The question is... Is there a way to add more than 1 track to this and not mess each other up. When I add a second audio track and beat map it; when I'm correcting its regions it messes up the tracks above...

I realise that the beat map is part of the global tracks, but is there a way I can use it on a per track basis or something like that?

Apple :: Imac Is Dying Or Mac OS X

Jan 10, 2010

One day as I'm turning on the computer (2008 imac) somebody (not going to say who) decides to just turn the computer off just about 3-4 seconds after I clicked the power button. When I booted up the computer again many things were wrong.

1. The computer runs extremely slow, both in my windows and mac partitions, I've pretty much concluded that this is hard drive problem since it takes forever to load applications and they run slow if and when they do finally load up.

2. Boot time is much greater, takes several minutes to fully boot up either of the partitions.

So I basically try to figure out what was wrong. I perform disk repair and verify disk operations from the disk utility, and the problem persists. I reinstall the mac OS (Leopard) with the archiving option. The problems still persist. It gets to a point where I can no longer even boot into the mac partition and if I try it keeps restarting itself.

One time a no smoking sign came up without the cigarette (if that makes sense). The windows partition continues to run even slower. Sometimes I can't even log in to my account on the windows side and the computer freezes up. Eventually I ended wiping the mac partition completely and doing a fresh install of Leopard. It fixed the problem somewhat but I feel the mac isn't running as fast it was before and there are other problems. If I update to 10.5.8 the update fails with an error saying something about airport scripts.....

Is it still worth it to get the imac?

Apple :: IMac Or Macbook Pro

Oct 23, 2009

I'm kinda stuck in this decision. I've decided that I'm either getting:




I already have a Laptop, it's kinda good. Not great, but very usable.

I'm thinking of either replacing my laptop completely, and selling my old one..
or getting a Desktop and using my Laptop whenever I need to.

The most movement I'll be doing is moving from room to room, from desk to sofa - But I think I can stay at a desk and use my Desktop for the majority of the time and use my Laptop in bed or whatever.

I'm still not sure though.. I'd like to hear from some other people. Is the Desktop significantly better than the Laptop?

Keep in mind that I can use a laptop when I need, but its windows.

Apple :: IMac 27inch Screen

Dec 3, 2009

thinking about buying an iMac. I bought the 27inch model on Black Friday and since two days ago, my screen started flickering and blacking out. I returned it last night and found out this is a major problem for Apple right now. I got home and did a search on google and it seems like this problem is affecting a lot of people. I know it's an early model, but I would think there QC would be better. Anyways, I got refunded and will wait out until the problem is under control.

Apple :: IMac For Music Production

Oct 28, 2009

I'm looking for a Laptop/Desktop for music recording and editing. I found out that a 15 inch MacBook Pro was going to cost me $3712.44 to ship it to norway with these specs: 3.06GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4GB (2x2GB), 500MB 7200 RPM.

I was okay with $2649 but this got way overpriced (in my opinion).

So I took a look at an iMac 27-inch, specs: 2.8GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7, 8GB (4x2GB), 1TB Serial ATA Drive (doesn't mention RPM), and this for "only" $3345.

If I'm right 2.8GHz Quad-Core is 11.2GHz (or is 2.8GHz the total?) and 3.06GHz Duo Core 7.2 GHz (or 3.06GHz).

So all the specs are better, and the screen is BIG. Seems like something I should go for?

Apple :: Lime Green G3 IMac Upgrade

Mar 28, 2010

my sister has one with receipt from 1998, and I was just wondering if it came with Wi-Fi?

Also, what's the latest OS that I can upgrade it to which won't be too choppy? It would be nice for word processing as there are no high-end pc games to distract me.

Also, what can I upgrade in it?

Apple :: Imac Display - Lines Of Varying Length

Jun 12, 2009

I was given a old imac. It's white, has 2.16 Ghz processor, 3GB RAM and the latest version of OSX.

I am a having two problems with it.

1. Seemingly at random, lines of varying length, one or a couple of pixels tall, appear on the display. Within each line the pixel by color appears to be random.

2. Sometimes I will click on a website or launch something and I get the multicolored wheel. The machine freezes and the wheel keeps going round and round and round. This seems to happen most frequently when making a video full screen. I wind up turning the machine off and restarting it.

Any ideas as to what's wrong? Video card? Video card memory?

Apple :: Compatibility Between 27" Imac, Macbook Pro, And Windows 7 Laptop

Apr 26, 2010

I currently have all Windows 7 PC's in my house. I find that it is easy to share foles and filders through Windows 7's "Homegroup" thing.

My question is:
If I have windows 7 running through parallels on a macbook pro, will with macbook pro show up in my homegroup?

On a side note I am also thinking of getting a 27" imac. I have an extra monitor so I would like to have windows 7 running on the external monitor, and os x on the main 27" screen.

I just want to make sure I can still share files easily with all the computers.

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 :: 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?

Dell :: XPS M1530 Slot Load Drive A Bit 'rough' Compared To IMac?

May 21, 2009

I like the slot load drive, I wouldn't want to go back to the traditional ones. However I've always thought it was a bit rough in the sense that you have to kind of force it in and it makes a lot of noise. Also when you eject it, it kind of 'spits' it out.
