Mac Pro :: What's Recommended Life Span For 2006

Mar 29, 2012

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. 

Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

Mac Pro :: Finding Recommended Video Card For 2006

Oct 27, 2009

So here's the deal, I've currently got a 2006 Mac Pro with an ATI X1900XT video card and a 23" ACD.

I'm looking to add two more displays to my setup (most likely 24" Dells) for a total of 3 monitors and would thus require 2 graphics cards.

So here's my question, would I be able to keep my current X1900 card and add a second card? If so, what card would people recommend?

Applications :: ICal - Multi Day Events Span Multi Days In Month View

Apr 27, 2007

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?

MacBook :: Is 4gb Ram Recommended

Jan 11, 2009

this is done by using one 2GB DDR3 stick and one 4GB DDR3 stick.

as the new macbook pros can take up to 8GB.. and there are only 2 ram channels, it will mean that they will use two 4GB sticks of ram.

would it be possible to buy one of these 4GB sticks.. combine it with a 2GB stick.. and allow my shiny new macbook to have 6GB of ram?!

Hardware :: Recommended All-in-One Printer/Scanner/Fax?

Apr 4, 2009

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.

I have a white macbook , its one with intel GMA950, and 3 GB ram ( tops at 3 gb )

I want to get an inexpensive SSD drive, I don't need that much space in the drive , I just need it to be fast, so I thought a 64 GB will fit my work easily.

The thing is, which model is the cheapest/safest for <= 200 USD.

Mac Pro :: Recommended More Memory For Quad Core?

May 27, 2009

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?

I'm thinking of getting the recently released macbook with 8gb ram and a SSD. I will install the ssd myself if possible.

My primary uses are Lightroom, FCP and PS CS5. I guess this is a little underpowered for me but to get the 15" i7 pimped to the correct spec will just break me.

MacBook Pro :: Bootcamp And Parallels - Recommended Partitions?

Oct 19, 2010

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.

MacBook Pro :: Finding Recommended Way To Run VMFusion Or Parallels?

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.
