In general, what's recommended life span for MAC Pros (2006)...time to buy new? Currently have six for a small team of designers working within a huge PC-based corporation. Two of the machines constantly crash or freeze; one sporadically; the other two never have a problem. All have same hardware configuration and software, and are all on the same LAN.
If I have an event, starting on Friday, going on Saturday and and finishing Sunday, is it not possible to get this to show in the month view? I know it shows up in the weekly view, but it would be more helpful for me to have it up show up like this so I can get an overview of the month's forthcoming events. Or if it, are there any mods/addons etc that can enable this?
Anyone care to offer a recommendation for a Mac-compatible all-in-one (printer/copier/scanner/ +/-fax)?
I am thinking about the Canon PIXMA MX860. My only concern about it is I currently have a (much) older Canon that uses Canon's MP Navigator 2.0 software and I find it somewhat clunky and buggy (and the included OCR is crappy).
Curious if anyone knows if the MX860 comes with better Mac software. Or if there are better alternatives to this all-in-one.
my 2.66 ghz Quad Core Mac Pro has 6 gig's of memory. I always have several application's open at the same time. I've got Aperture 2 which is using 632 mb of memory but sometimes it goes over 1gb. Iphoto is using 300 mb, I've got firefox open, the New York Times Reader, Rhapsody's online player, Apple's email client, Itunes, etc. Do you guys think that 6gig's of memory is enough? Is more memory recommended? Would that 2 gig's of memory make a difference?
The features that are really important to me are:Time machine compatibility iTunes server built-in. I would of gone for time capsule except it doesn't support itunes server - i take it that it's still the case regarding time capsule.
I have 2 gigs of stuff on my desktop. Its not going to slowdown my mac will it? I keep my mac on all the time so start-up time is no concern if thats even a concern cause i remember back in my pc days reading you should keep your desktop clean for fast load up. I also found some script that hides all the stuff on my desktop so it looks empty and i access my desktop files through Finder if that makes any dif.
Just did an Apple update to my iMac. Is it recommended to to a restart after the update has downloaded? By the sounds of the prompt afterwards "The update was done successfully" or something like that, sounds like it is not.

Im thinking of buying a mac, i've always used a windows pc though. Im gonna see what happends tommorow at the mac event but I want a Mac Book Pro. i want to dualboot mac os and windows 7 using bootcamp, parrallels, and refit. I've been doing some research on it and I would like some expert opinions on recommended settings to partition the disk. should I do 50/50 split or what? I'll either get a 320 or 500gb hard drive. I also see that some people split it three ways and have a 3rd partition for shared files, such as music, documents, ect. is this recommended or is this not really needed to share files between the 2 OS's? I'll probably be using windows OS more often or atleast use parallels alot until i get the hang of mac os. I also want to be able to sync itunes on both the windows and mac os, so it doesnt madder which operating system im on if i want to listen, download or sync my ipod, is there a way to do this? And lastly, I use outlook to download my comcast email via pop3. Is there a way to sync outlook in windows and outlook for mac between the partitions? I can not find any answers to this question online. Any opinions, recommendations, or thoughts about these subjects or buying my first mac in general is welcome.
Very new to all this but would love some advice on the best monitor to get for my Mac Mini. I dont play many games or Movies but would use it 99% of the time for processing photographs. My Mac Mini is a 2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo running Mac OS X version 10.6.5. Budget is around the �200 GBP mark.
Trying to get my boss to agree to let me have a MBP. I will have to run Windows for access to Access and I just wondered if anyone could recommend which way to go: VMFusion or Parallels? Or perhaps Boot Camp.... although I would prefer, ideally, to have both Win and OX running at the same time, rather than having to choose at boot-up.
I recently installed VMware and Windows 7 on my iMac, all is running well but I have read some threads that some users are running Fusion in a BootCamp partition. Is there an advantage to having a BootCamp partition, and is it recommended?
