I noticed the lack of 2010 Macbook Air Wallpapers, due to it being newly released of course. So I decided to use Apple's Macbook Air stock images to create a wallpaper. It's nothing special, and I'm not expert, but I tried my best. Check out my YouTube channel: BackToBackMac. Enjoy.
I've looked at some other posts that have gone over how to move files to an external drive, and they all say to use command while moving. I understand this copies the file and deletes the original, but when you make a copy and delete the original, you lose some of the original data, such as creation date, etc... This makes storage and organization more complicated than it has to be.
I have an 11.6 ultimate config... but I still find the 128gb SSD tight, with a large bootcamp partition. Also I feel like storing media on the SSD is kinda wasteful of the SSD's speed. So I've done this temporary solution. I figured other people would be interested. I tried 2 items, as I wanted to add storage via usb without having it stick out and stuff.measure.
I've spent the best part of the day researching SSD drives, I'm wanting to pop one in my MBP.I've been looking at the OCZ Vertex and also the Intel X-25M Gen 2.I've set my heart on getting the OCZ but after spending a good hour on their forums, it seems that (like all other drives) there isn't a 'wiper' tool available for OSX.Should this affect my decision? No-one knows if Snow Leopard will support TRIM and I don't want to left with a drive that has lost most of it's umph after a few weeks.I don't claim to know all the details of TRIM (I'm a mere-mortal wanting faster performance), so please feel free to put my mind at ease
My other half wants to do some web research on her mum's Belarus background but is being hampered by the lack of Cyrillic characters on her MacBook. I've found a website which sells Cyrillic keyboards that connect via USB. Does anyone know if connecting one of these to the MacBook would work? Would she have to make any other mods?
I had a look today at various models of the MBP, I must say I like everything about them except the keyboard, to touch type on it, it feels very cheap, very "lack of response". I am a fast touch typist, and I am used to bashing out 60+ wpm, however I found on all the models I tired, 13,15 and 17 the keyboard is all much of a much. I found typing fast that characters don't appear on the screen.
I assume somewhere in the options there are settings to change the keyboard sensitivity? That's really the only thing putting me off buying one, well apart from also deciding what screen size to get. Portability vs. Screen Size. I wish Apple offered an i7 version of the 13" MBP, that would make the choice easy.
I've had my Macbook Pro since mid 2009. It's been great, never had any real problems. Then in about October, I noticed one side of my trackpad wasn't offering as much resistance as it was before. I just ignored it, didn't mind too much. But it progressively got worse, and eventually got so sensitive that I couldn't even scroll without it clicking when I didn't want it too.I was pretty upset, called apple, they told me to send it in and fixed it for free. It was all very nice, orderly, and quick. So I was satisfied.But, lo and behold, it's at it again. I can't believe it. It hasn't gotten so sensitive that I can't use it yet, but I'm very upset right now. I have no idea why it's doing this. It's not really overheating, I have never dropped or hit my macbook. I'm the only one who uses it. I don't abuse it at all.
cbook today and all of my wallpapers have disappeared and I'm left with a blue background. In the categories (e.g. nature, plants, black and white etc) there are no files. I have two accounts on the machine and both accounts do not have any wallpaper files.
I love my 11.6" Air but the lack of a backlit keyboard is killing me. And why on earth are the freaking letters on the keys dark grey? If Apple released a new Air next month with an i3 or i5 ULV or Sandy Bridge ULV and a backlit keyboard I would feel compelled upgrade even at ridiculous cost to myself. Is there a real reason why there are no backlit keys on the Air? Is Apple just forcing me to upgrade to the next model when released?
Just not sure how it went down. They are in a clean room. Looking at the Air. Seems like someone would have said, "thing would really benefit with a backlit kayboard" and that somebody else would have said "yeah, we are Apple, leaders in design" and then Jobs would chime in, "Damn straight. Make it so." Where did it breakdown?
I am trying to upgrade my software and its says I don't have enough hard disk space. Im sure I have not used 350 gig worth of memory.When I see what is using my memory I hardly have any space use by music, pics, videos, but then it says "other" and it show my entire drive is being used. I assume I have recopied somthing or backed something up several times. Any suggestions how to get rid of large files!
With the Introduction of Civilization V for the Mac and its huge need for power. Now i'm not gonna attempt to try to play this game. But I downloaded Ship Simulator Extreme on my windows partition. Now on Steam it has the system requirements.
OS: Windows XP (Min. service pack 2), Windows Vista or Windows 7. 32 and 64 bits OS supported Processor: 3 Ghz P4 Intel or AMD equivalent processor Memory: 2GB (Windows XP) or 3GB (Vista or Windows 7) Hard Disk Space: 3.5 GB Video Card: Geforce 8800GT or ATI Radeon 4850 with 256MB ram (At least Shader model 3.0) Sound: DirectX compatible DirectX�: 9.0c
I have a MacBook Aluminium, Intel Core 2 Due 2.0GHz with 2GB Ram and NVIDIA 9400M. The game plays incredibly slowly and keeps jumping, like the refresh rate is so slow. I have downloaded the latest driver from NVIDIA but still it plays slow. Is my problem here the lack of RAM and I have a dual core processor which is above the requirements? I thought the good video card and processor would be enough? A lot of games seem to have minimum requirements much more than my mac, its not ever that old and seems outdated already.
I just bought a MacBook Air 11'' 64GB SSD on this Tuesday.I upgraded my Lion version to 10.7.3, and I've noticed that I don't have the whole desktop wallpapers in the System Preferences > Desktop and Screen Saver.
I do not own any Mac at home, but looking into one for college. I have read up on all the pros/ cons of the MBA (non-removable battery and RAM, lack of ports and optical drive, etc). I am not a computer gamer, so I stick to the consoles. I was wondering if a MBA is ideal for any kind of music production. Can it handle heavy music editing with GB or Logic Pro? Is it ideal with the somewhat "lack" of external ports? share your opinions and/ or experiences with music production for fun or work on a MBA. (By the way, I am asking this to decide whether I should be looking into a MBA or MBP for college September of 2009, so I have LOTS of time to wait for newer models).
I am looking for a breathtaking high quality wallpaper for my macbook pro that is 1440 x 900 resolution. I was wondering if anyone would like to share cool Lord of the Rings backgrounds that they found from the vast reaches of the internet. I also wanted to share this awesome theme that I stumbled upon for those Mac users out there that use google chrome: [URL]
Setting aside the temporary lack of support for Windows 7, I was wondering which I should install. I have a few older titles/games that I would like to use/play from time to time. All of them were designed for XP. I'm sure Windows 7 will more than likely run them fine, but is it really my best option?I'm not planning to invest in any additional Windows software (at least that's the current plan). The cost is the same so I'm asking for opinions and comments from others.
I've bought a 1 TB iomega ego mac edition II external fire wire drive. Once connected it asked whether i want to create a password and whether i want my data encrypted, to which i answered yes. Then a time machine backup started and failed after backing up 5.25 GB out of 39 GB of my data with the following error: "The backup disk ran out of space unexpectedly. Time Machine will try to make more space available by removing expired backups during the next scheduled backup". When i look at time machine it shows there is 994.29 GB available on iomega ego drive. The drive then went into: "Encrypting Backup Disk" message and it takes forever.
Info: MacBook Pro (15-inch Late 2011), Mac OS X (10.7.3)
The selection of Apple approved extensions is dismal at best. Am I the only one who was expecting a bit more selection, especially given the additional wait time after the launch of Safari 5? How does Apple expect Safari 5 to compete with Firefox when it has so few (approved) extensions? Since the launch of the extensions gallery, I haven't seen much change in the available offerings, even though there is still a wealth of non-approved extensions out there. So what gives? Is it a lack of developers? Is Apple being too stringent in its method of approving extensions?
Where can I find the Apple pre installed wallpapers in a folder (path).
Because i use "change wallpaper for 1 minute" and I didn't like some of the wallpapers and I wanted to get ride of them. If I could find those wallpapers as a files in any location, I could delete (or move to some other location) them.
I'm wanting to purchase two of the new 24" iMacs for my Graphic/Web design business. I've been looking at the 24" 2.66 model with the NVIDIA GeForce 9400M integrated graphics chipset. I have been reading reviews that say this model of iMac is fine for gaming but not for a graphics workstation. Our main software is the Adobe Design suite, is anyone on this forum using this model of iMac as a graphics workstation, and do you find any lack in performance with adobe products.
I have a unibody MacBook with a native resolution of 1280x800. I downloaded several wallpapers from [URL] all at 1280x800 and whenever I use them as wallpapers they appear either scaled up and pixelated or severely scaled down (at "Fit to screen" and "Center" respectively). Previously I had a 17" PowerBook at 1440x900 and didn't have that issue.
