MacBook Pro :: 13" Processor Upgrade Vs RAM Upgrade?

Nov 17, 2010

Looking at getting a 13" MPB to replace my aging Macbook. I am aware of the imminent arrival of the next gen next year, but still seriously considering getting a current gen.

Anyway, I am debating between getting the 2.66GHz version with 4GB RAM and the 2.4GHz version with 8GB RAM. I already have a 500GB 7200rpm HDD which I will transplant into it. Some stage in the next year or so I will look into getting an SSD and optibay for it.

I know that if I get the faster processor I can upgrade the RAM at a later date, but is the faster processor worth the money, or would I be better spending on RAM?

Mac Pro :: Processor Upgrade (E 0 Steppings)

Sep 21, 2010

I have an early '08 Mac Pro that came with one E5462 2.8GHz Xeon processor. I would like to upgrade the processors as much as possible. As far as I can tell from my own research as well as the information on other threads in the forum, the best processors I can put in the machine are the Xeon X5482 3.2GHz chips. I found a pair of them on eBay, but the seller says the steppings are "E 0 steppings". The seller describes the chips as "Intel Xeon Quad Core X5482 E S"... which sounds like they were Engineering Samples... I'm okay with that, but what about the "E 0" steppings? Will they work in the Mac Pro?

MacBook :: 32-64 Bit Processor - Upgrade To Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite

Dec 3, 2014

I have a MacBook1,1 running Mac OS X 10.6.8 Snow Leopard. I would like to upgrade to Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite. The Mac App Store says that a 64 bit processor is required. since my MacBook has a 32 bit Intel Core Duo, I would like to replace it with a 64 bit Intel Core 2 Duo processor. Is this possible, if so, what are the risks and should I bring it into an Apple store to get it fixed.

MacBook Air :: Processor Power, Features To Upgrade MBA?

Oct 15, 2008

I am perfectly happy with my MBA, but I must admit that I like to always have the "latest and greatest". The new MacBooks look great, although I haven't seen one "live" or had the opportunity to get hands on with one yet. If I buy a new MacBook, I give up the form factor, but gain the processor power, features, etc. Also, it will really feel like a new computer because of the different appearance. Since I like the MBA form factor, I was thinking of just upgrading to that. The problem is that it won't even feel like I got a new laptop, because visually it would be identical to the one I have now. In fact, the reduced battery life may not offset the benefit of larger HD and improved graphics. Dying for a new laptop though... what are you other MBA owners thinking?

OS X :: Upgrade HDD Or Clone Original Disk

Aug 5, 2009

Does a mac come preinstalled with any software that is 'first time' only, and is not included on the install DVDs? I am expecting a mini shortly, and don't know whether to upgrade the HDD straight away, or clone the original disk. I'd rather do a new install.

Mac Pro :: Time To Upgrade Original Dual Core 2x2,66?

Jul 19, 2009

Usually pick up a new mac tower ~4yrs or so and now that im halfway through usually more or less max it to the hilt to last me. Lately havnt had the time focus on trends of who's putting out the most rock solid drives, ram, and what the best setups would appreciate some feedback on my simple upgrade project for the home office...My usage is primarily heavy photography in pshop, lightroom, etc and moderate HD video editing in FCP.

First off think its time finally replace my wrt54g linksys router with one that supports NAS via usb, firewire, or ethernet... Eyeballing the 610n. Goal is to backup my data via time machine over the network now.

So for this effort i'd like to pick up 2 external 1.5tb or 1tb drives here in order to support the time machine backups, suggestions? Currently have a couple seagate 500gb externals in raid 1 via usb directly into my tower for time machine backup purposes and they are low on space. I would most likely raid 1 these as well for redundancy. What's the deal on raid 5 & 10, do the basic osx disc utilities support that yet?

Current spec on the quad core mac pro tower is the stock 250gb drive used only for the OS and apps, plus a couple 500gb seagate drives.Like to pull the 2 internal seagate drives and replace with 4 of the most reliable 1tb or 1.5tb internal drives on the market, seagate & wd have usually treated me right. Like to run raid 0 on each of the 2 pairs internally for speed so id essentially have about ~2 tb of daily workable space. Are the 2tb drives there yet in terms of reliability & value?

Lastly as for ram, risers a & b both are paired with 512 in each slot for 2gb total. Thinking 8gb would probably be sufficient for my purposes. Where are the best ram deals currently for the quality stuff.Budget isnt too much of an issue, prefer to pay few bux more quality instead of crap though im a frugal spender. Figure ~100-200ea for the internal drives, bit more for the externals, ~300 for couple 4gb ram modules,~200 for the router...

Mac Mini :: Can Not Access AHT For Original G4?

Apr 21, 2012

I was wondering whether any of the Apple Hardware Test images disposable from Apple would actually work with any other products not listed (Like the Power Mac G4, in this case), or whether there, by any chance, is a copy of my included install disk elsewhere?This is regarding my 1.42 Hz G4 Mini, see this for details.The disc contains AHT version 1.0 and its ID is 2Z691-5455-A, however, the backside of the DVD looks like it was lost outside the window, picked up by a wind carrying it to the nearest sea with sharks (some thousands of miles), played with by a shark with very sharp teeth, broken into thousand pieces, run through the animals several phases of gastric secretion, collected into a small chunk of plastic fragments, glued together to make it look like the original DVD once shipped with the computer back in '05.

OS X V10.5 Leopard :: Upgrading Original Mac Mini?

Mar 24, 2012

I have one of the first Mac mini's.  I upgraded the memory to 80 GB's, the processor is a 1.42 GHz PowerPC G4.  I'm getting a new Mac Mini that will work in the iCloud. The software is version 10.5.8, the newest the processor can support.  It works well, albeit a little slow at times. I want to give the old mini to my 12 year old grandson, and would like to upgrade the keyboard and mouse to the mac magic mouse and wireless keyboard.
