Mac :: MBP 17" And Express Card Slot?

Apr 26, 2010

I have a question for you about the ExpressCard slot of the new MacBook Pros.. I'm going to buy (maybe today) my first Mac and I'd like to buy the 17", since I need a portable desktop replacement... one of the reasons why I'd like to buy the 17" (apart from the very nice screen resolution) is that it has an ExpressCard slot which enables you (I hope) to expand the capabilities of your MBP in the future... My question is if the ExpressCard is version 1 or 2, because I'd like to buy in the future an ExpressCard with USB 3 ports and only the ExpressCard 2 can support the specifications of USB 3 (5 Gbps), is it right? Do you think there will be USB 3 ExpressCards for the MBPs?

Mac :: 15" MBP With Express Card Slot Cons?

Aug 6, 2009

I am thinking about purchasing one of the early releases of the MBP 15", before they replaced the expresscard slot with the SD Card slot. As a filmmaker, the expresscard slot allows on-site ingestion of Sony's and Panasonic's SxS and P2 cards - a nice utility. I also don't use point-and-shoots, so the SD card has zero utility for me.I just wanted to make sure that, before I buy the previous revision, there is nothing I will be missing by purchasing the older edition. I remember that they widened the color gamut on the MBPs by 30% with the update, but this is really insignificant as their color accuracy isn't thaaaat great anyway.

Feb 24, 2010

First of all, sorry for my bad English.I want to buy a notebook (my first one). A macbook pro. I know that 17" model has the expresscard slot, and 15" has SD card instead. I'd like to know:Can the 15" model be equipped with expresscard slot? (that is, substitute SD by expresscard).If not, does any adaptor/converter exist on the market?Apart, which one is better (is more usable/useful), SD slot or expresscard slot?

Apr 28, 2010

I would like to have two firewire devices connected to my MBP but would prefer not to share bandwidth. If I purchased a firewire express card would that provide me with a 2nd dedicated firewire bus. It seems based the express 34 bus architecture that this would work however.

Feb 4, 2008

Two questions, wondering if anyone knows the answer:1.Looking for maximum bandwidth of ExpressCard/34 slot in MacBook Pro(Since eSATA raid is supported with ExpressCard, the bandwidth should be there. Looks like it has at least 70MB read/write?)2. Are there ExpressCard/34 SSD disks that runs faster than internal SATA drives? (Mtron seems to make only 2.5" and 3.5")

Mac Pro :: Which Slot To Put Graphics Card In

Dec 20, 2008

Rite now im trying to install my gtx 280 in my mac pro 1 but it will not fit in the first pcie slot. I know its pretty easy to get it in on the 2nd slot, but im just wondering if it will work? Or do all graphics cards have to be on the first slot? I read here that you can either put it in the first or second. So Im just making sure.

I already took the stock 7300 out of the 1st slot though.

MacBook Air :: MBA SD Card Slot With Standard 4gb Ram?

Jun 12, 2009

Is it possible to put an SD Card slot into the RevC MBA?, I just read that an SD card can be used to boot the MBP in case the HDD Fails. I would think that Apple might be able to squeeze a SD Slot in there to make the MBA even better. Also, the Rev-D should have the SD-Card Slot and a standard 4GB RAM.

Hardware :: XD To SD Card Slot Adapter?

Jun 19, 2009

Tried the search function without much luck and Google doesn't seem to be either, so I suspect the answer is now, but On the new MBPs there's an SD card slot. However, our company used cameras which take the smaller XD cards, so I was wondering if there's any sort of adapter available that you can put your XD cards in to be read by a standard SD slot?

OS X :: Where Is The MacBook Pro 17 Inch SD Card Slot

Jul 2, 2009

One thing I hate about Mac's are there lack of Port's. Although I am a sincere/proud Mac Owner. I always wondered why Apple had lack of ports. Now my question:

Why doesen't the 17inch MBP have an SD CARD Slot and 4 USB PORT'S? Can we look forward to seeing this in the next update?

Also I think the Baseline MBP (13inch) should have at least 3 USB Ports too! For the 15 inch It should have 4 also.

MacBook Pro :: Creative Uses For The SD Card Slot?

Aug 30, 2009

I'm still trying to decide whether or not to give up my expresscard slot for an SD card slot. If I could figure out something useful to do with it, that would persuade me. I don't do hard core photography yet, and if I did, I could always just USB the camera.Does anyone use the SD card slot for something other than photography? I figured maybe it could be used like a floppy drive to organize certain projects or files but those could always be backed up to CD/ DVD. Not to mention, if you store the files on your hard drive, time machine would back them up.

Hardware :: 2nd Video Card Slot Available?

Sep 25, 2008

I bought a NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT to supplement my pre-installed NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT video card. One card will run two Samsung LCD's and the other card a third similar monitor. Would I see any improved performance in programs such as Motion if I swap card slots, putting the 8800 in the main spot (running 2 monitors)? Or does the computer utilize both cards for improved realtime rendering regardless of what slot their in.

Apr 25, 2012

I have a 95MB/s UHS I and Class 10 SD card.  Using Blackmagic Disk Speed Test, I get 17 MB/s write and 19.8 MB/s read speeds.   Following the information in this apple support document, the speed of my internal card reader is 480Mb/s.  Depending upon how you convert bits to bytes, that should be in the 57-60MB/s range. 

Anyone know I can get it running at the max?

Mac Pro :: Good FW800 Card PCI Express Card?

Oct 20, 2008

Just realized that all the firewire ports on my 8-Core Mac Pro share the same bus. I need to capture video from a HDV camera to a firewire hard drives and I get hickups and slow downs that cause dropped frames. Can anybody share any links to what FW card to get to and where I can buy it from? Anything that does not cost to much? Please only post links of cards you have used or read good reviews using it on a Mac Pro. Also what slot would I put the card in? I want to make sure the slot is not also sharing a bus with something else.
