I just got mine last week & started with some video editing today & after a few hours,
I can feel it in my eyes... Should I get a matt screen cover or maybe one of those Crystal film screen covers, Like this one? [url]
I've wanting a laptop for almost 5 months now and I simply am having problems choosing between the 15" MBP, Sony Z, and Dell M4400. I am extremely indecisive and I want to make the good decision. I like to have portability, power, and a decent looking laptop.
I'm really leaning towards the 15" MacBook Pro because it fits almost everything what I want in a laptop BUT I simply cannot fathom starring a glossy screen for the next few years. For everyone who has a MacBook Pro, how is the glossy screen? I know I won't be using the laptop outside in the sun, but I could be in a sunny kitchen or living room and I do not want to strain my eyes with glare and reflection. Can anyone make me feel better about this glossy screen?
Also, I plan to use Windows Vista 90% of the time.
Does anyone know if the new right click button is supported with Vista?
Any other problems from using Vista as my primary OS on the MBP?
Do I have to logout to switch graphics mode in Windows... or is that just for OSX?
Is there still an issue with the laptop acting funny with maxing out the ram at 4GB?
As I'm 100% sure I want the older intel santa rosa macbook pro, I was just wondering if there were models with the glossy screen? I want a matte screen as I tend to sit outside with my laptop, so how will I be able to differentiate between the two?
I have recently been getting pretty severe eye strain and headaches (migraines) after spending too much time online. Has anyone here experienced any eye strain or headaches from their Macbook Pro Glossy Screens?
I never used to get these with my older Macbook Black that I had. The screen on my new Macbook Pro looks great and colors are excellent but the eye strain is really bad and I am wondering if anyone has these problems with their Macbook Pro Glossy screen and if it is any better with the regular Macbooks (Macbook White) compared to the Macbook pros??
I was thinking that the Thinkpads would be better for having less eye strain compared to the Macbook Pro 15" glossy screens so I asked a question in that forum as well to get some feedback from the Thinkpad users. I am now thinking of getting a Thinkpad laptop or a regular Macbook because of the eye strain and headaches I get after spending too much time looking at my Macbook screen.
I have a mac book pro with Safari OS..some kind of Hack, secret virus/stroke key etc..and I need help in trying to fix it. I need to be contacted at the hotmail address, as I go to the library to get this uncompromised email. If you write, I will reply with problem in detail as much as I can explain-I am not too computer literate..I DO know who has done it. I guess that is a start..They say they are better than any APPLE hackers, techs, genius bar etc. and cannot be detected..
I'm a PC user, and one of my friend has a Mac book. Recently he lost his data and ask me to recover his data for him but I'm not good at Mac. So, do you guys know how to easily recover all his data? What are the best software to do that?
i have a SR Macbook pro (late 2007) with OS X 10.4. i hooked it up with Western Digital MyBook Studio 1TB (external USB drive). the drive is correctly partitioned and formatted. using GUID and HFS+, quite often upon connecting, the drive start up, then spun down again imediately. strangely enough, the drive is still connected, the indicator light is still on, and the drive is still mounted under "disk utility", the volume however does not. if that makes sense. should i be worried? anyone else experience this problem? does this indicate that there is a problem with the drive? or a problem with mac os x? - i do have freeagent pro drive before, and it also have trouble with the drive jamming mid file transfer.
I'm considering buying a Dell e6400 or Dell e6500. I'd prefer the I'd prefer a 15.4' screen. However, if I get that I feel like I probably should get a higher res than the basic 1280 x 800. Ideally I want 1440 x 900.
The problem is Dell only seems to offer the higher resolution in a glossy screen on either model (at least in Canada) - "UltraSharp™ Wide WXGA+ (1440x900) LED Display-Brushed Metal Black". I spoke to Dell and they said it's something in b/w an anti-glare screen and a consumer glossy screen, but I'm not sure what to make of that.
I'm wondering if anyone has this type of screen and can tell me what their experience has been? How glossy is it?
I mainly will use my laptop for writing and office work - in coffee shops, offices or the library - so I don't like have a screen that is reflective. I much prefer an anti-glare screen. I've thought about just buying the e6400 with the anti-glare 1280x800 LED screen, but like I say, would prefer to get a bigger screen if possible, so wanted to see how glossy these screens really are.
I know it sounds Outlook-ish, but I think it'd be nice to be able to have my calendar and contacts show within Apple Mail -- that way, everything is right there in one window, and any changes I make are synced to Gmail / GCal, since that's the source of my calendar and contacts.
Have only found one reference to a since-defunct piece of software. Can this be done, preferably via freeware -- or even software options I missed?
It's a old version MacBook Pro 15.4" 2008 Edition, Core 2 Duo 2.5Ghz (i think) 2GB Ram, 250GB HDD
The problem I encountered was that one day when I was using my laptop I forgot to turn it off and then my laptop went to 'sleep' mode, when I came back and tried to turn on my laptop I could hear the sound but my display was black.
I thought it was just a minor problem so I just restarted my laptop but the problem consisted...
Unfortuately my warranty ran out but still I still put my laptop through the checkup in the official Apple customer center and they said that I needed to purchase a new part PCBA, MLB, 2.5 GHZ, REV2.
I really like the look of both (pretty similar to me) but i like to have 13' and as thin as possible with optical drive and seems like Pro line has the 13' but does it only available in the reddish brown color? does it come in brush black finish?
Im in the market of getting two notebooks 16' for my bro and myself 13' no smaller/bigger than 13' and both with optical drive (must) and ofcoz thin! could you guys recommend some (dont care about brand) 16' must under 1500$ haha and 13' no problem cuz that's mine (i already have the Sony Z so no more Z i want a different brand than Sony for my 13') no net book for me and im not a gamer so dont really care about the graphic card
Is anyone here familiar with the "finish" option on the Studio? I was told over the phone that if I get black or white, it will come in a glossy finish, and if I get one of the colors, it will come in a textured matte finish. I prefer the matte finish, because glossy plastic finishes are a big problem---my palms stick to the plastic.
I have an SXPS 1340 running Windows 7 Ultimate. I have tried to connect a Western Digital My Book Home external HD through the esata port but i can't get the computer to recognise it. Has anyone else successfully connected this model HD to the 1340 through esata? To those of you who have successfully connected a different external HD through the esata port what brand and model of external HD are you using?
