Hardware :: Finding MacBook Air SSD / Flash Memory Specs

Oct 23, 2010

I know that the iFixIt tear down reveals Toshiba flash chips on the 11" MBA, but I was curious to know the following specs on the 13" MBA.

Does Apple use different suppliers for the different capacities/models (i.e. Samsung, Hynix, etc.)

I could make some guesses from the benchmark tests, but would like to have hard specs.

I tried contacting Apple, but the only thing they would tell me is the capacity available for purchase. I also don't have the guidelines to reference the flash specs based on the model of the Toshiba flash.

IMac :: Finding Screen Specs?

May 6, 2009

I am trying to make a decision on what computer to buy... I am buying this computer mainly for graphic design so the screen is a very important part of this decision.

It is between a Mac Mini:
2.26 GHz Processor
4 MB Ram
120 GB Hard Drive
NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics
3 External Hard drives: 1 as my main HD, 1 as a backup, and 1 to bring back and forth to school.

With this monitor:


24" iMac
2.66 GHz Processor
4GB Ram
640 GB Hard Drive
NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics
2 External hard drives: one as backup and one to bring back and forth to school

My main question is what are the specs on the 24" iMac screen such as panal type etc. and which screen is better: the iMac screen or the HP screen linked above. Remember I'm going to be using it primarily for graphic design.

MacBook Pro :: Will SSD Perform As The Flash Memory

Dec 2, 2010

1) Will it perform as well as the Flash memory in a MBA? They load apps stupidly fast, will the performance of a SSD in my MBP match that? 2) Are they hard to fit?3) I know there's loads of threads about this, but which would you recommend? I will be getting one for my dad's 13" MBP as well, will they both be the same size?

For MacBooks with SSD drives and a SD card slot; is it practical to insert an "empty" SD card there and use it as spare flash memory to store files etc?  Any downsides to doing this?  Will the OS detect it like its a spare drive?

MacBook Air :: How Long Will NAND Flash Memory Last

Oct 26, 2010

Was looking to buy a new laptop to replace dying old XP Dell and compliment iMac. Was thinking of a 13" Macbook Pro but have got interested and excited by this new Air. Its the instant on and portability that appeals........ but on this forums in places and elsewhere on internet (even Wikipaedia) there appears to be concerned that NAND flash memory has a definite life.... so many 1s and 0s changing before it slows right down.

Is this right... how long will it be.... can it be refreshed by copying stuff, doing something and then loading back up.... or has it to be replaced. The iFixit teardown suggests it is replaceable but at what cost. ie don't want to buy one only for the memory to give up the ghost in a year or two.

MacBook Pro :: Flash Memory Save Limit?

Jun 14, 2012

I read in another post here that the new all-flash memory is only good for about 100,000 saves, or 5 years for the average computer user. Is this really true? It seems silly to promote using hardware that puts such a limit on the user..

MacBook Pro :: Finding Memory Usage For 13"

May 24, 2010

So I finally went to the Apple Store and got my very first Mac, a MacBook Pro 13" .

Anyways, I got the baseline configuration that came with 4 GB of memory. Playing with the Activity Monitor, I noticed that after awhile of using the computer, the green "free" memory piece of the pie becomes progressively smaller until it's almost gone. Does that mean I have no more free memory left? But I'm not running a lot of programs at once. Just Safari and iTunes, maybe Pages too.

MacBook Pro :: Flash Memory Vs Normal In Macbook 2011?

Dec 24, 2010

Lately I have been considering an issue and couldnt quite come to the right answer. is it true that certain programs cant be installed on flash memory? I have been looking at the 15" i7 but i hear that there might be an upgrade due around 2011, does anyone know anythng about this and what it is likely to include? Reason is i would not like to spend the money on the 15" only to find that a later greater upgrade is avail. in your opinion, is the upgrade likely as soon as april-may next year and is there likely to be any significant improvements?

Mar 23, 2009

When I plug in a USB Flash Memory, it instantly pop up a message that says I need to restart my computer, by letting the power button presed for a while or pressing the restart button (Which I dont have). It has a 0/1 button-like image on it.

At first I thought my USB had a virus or some corrupt file, but when I realized there were no mac files (Just Windows and universal), I pluged in another USB, and the same thing happened.

Safari :: Why Does Flash Player Use So Much Memory In Lion

Feb 13, 2012

I have an issue I have been seeing since upgrading to Lion (10.7.3) and the latest version of Safari (5.1.3, I believe?).  When browsing the web for a while (particularly, Flash heavy sites, I have noticed my computer's temperature getting hot and more beach balling starting to occur.  The first time this happened, I opened Activity Monitor and noticed that Flash Player was using, almost, 900 MB of RAM (and I had less than 100 MB available).  Other than Safari, I only had a couple of other applications open, neither of which were memory intensive.  Quitting Safari gave me back a huge amount of memory, my temperatures, quickly, dropped back down to reasonable levels, and the performance lag went away. I never saw this kind of memory hogging under Snow Leopard.  Is Flash Player this much of a nuisance under, either, Firefox or Chrome? 

I have a 2010 MacBook Pro, 2.53 GHz, i5 with 4 GB of RAM.

Hardware :: Finding Compatible Memory?

Technology DDR2 SDRAM - 400.0 MHz

Mac Pro :: Memory Installation - Finding Guide

Apr 19, 2008

I know there have been a lot of posts about installing additional memory - I even watched the installation video over at OWC. OWC video shows two factory 1GB memory sticks - one in Slot A of the upper riser board and one in Slot A of the lower riser board. It says to move the module from Slot A of the lower riser board and install it in Slot B of the upper riser board to make a matched pair.

But here's the question. I have 4GB of RAM - two 1GB modules in Slots A&B of each riser board from the factory (I know - I know - I should have ordered it with the stock RAM and purchased the extra at less than the exorbitant prices Apple charges - but that's another story). I want to add 4GB more (two 2GB modules):
Move the two 1GB factory modules from Slots A&B of the lower riser board into Slots C&D of the upper riser board and then install the two new 2GB modules into Slots A&B of the lower riser board (just as the OWC video implies)?

Leave the factory modules where they are and install one 2GB module in Slot C of each riser board to provide a "balanced" 4GB on each riser board?

Options #2 seems to provide a "balanced" module location (4GB in the upper riser board and 4GB in the lower riser) so the four cores on each CPU can access an equal amount of memory for optimum performance. - but I have read that you need to install the new modules in matched pairs - but does that mean put them together on the same riser board? In the OWC video, if the two new modules were a matched pair then why wouldn't they be put one in each riser board just like the factory modules?

Ok i just want to make triple sure that this ram will indeed work in my imac 20" 2.0 (late 07 model) which uses ddr2 pc5300 667 200 pin ram.

The only thing that is striking me odd is that this is the only ram on neweggs site that seems to be compatible with an iMac that doesn't actually show up under their Apple > Mac Memory category

Software :: Finding Adobe Flash 9?

I am getting an alert from Firefox that I need to install a Flash Player update. It gives me a link to the free Flash 10 download from Adobe. That's lovely of them, except that Flash 10 is only compatible with OX 10.4 & higher. I have 10.3.9. All the old links I can find for Flash 9 seem to have been updated to Flash 10.

Mac Pro :: Finding Memory Testing Boot CD For Intel Macs?

Apr 8, 2006

However it seems like OSX does eat up quite a fair bit of memory and Rember doesn't seem able to find the fault when I am running on one stick (it is probably used up by some block of code that has yet to run yet!)

Is there such a thing as the equivalence of memtest86 for Macs? Or even better will memtest86 even boot on a Intel Mac, now that it supports BIOS?
