MacBook Air :: Realization - IPhone Storage Versus MBA Storage?

Jan 10, 2010

I thought I would share a cool realization. I am now eligible for any iPhone upgrades and most likely will be getting the new one coming out this summer - whatever it may be. I realized today that most likely it will have 64GB of storage - the exact same size as my Macbook Air - I think it is so wild my future phone/pocket computer will have the exact same storage capacity as my main laptop. I could potentially mirror everything on my Mac that is on my iPhone in the future.

MacBook Pro :: How Much Data Can 256GB Flash Storage Hold

Jun 12, 2012

How much data can a 256GB Flash storage hold?  The only reason I haven't gone ahead with my purchase is that I'm worried that 256GB is too little.  I wish it were possible to upgrade to 512GB on the base model.

MacBook Pro :: How Come There Is No Option To Upgrade Flash Storage For 2.3GHz

Jun 13, 2012

How come there is no option to upgrade flash storage for 2.3GHz new MBP whereas you can upgrade the storage for 2.6GHZ new MBP? Does it mean you can't upgrade the storage for 2.3GHZ MBP once you buy later?

MacBook Pro :: 512GB, 768GB Flash Storage Speed Tests?

Jun 25, 2012

For some reason, Apple marketing has left out a very import bit of information regarding the sale of Flash based storage.  The specs of our flash storage is and was as important as the RPMs off our mechanical drives.  As most of you know, shopping for SSDs is like wading through a sea of speed tests.  Yet for some reason, Apple is not forthcoming about the IOPS, Read, and or Write speeds of their flash media.  There have been endless reports about Toshiba and Samsung based flash media being shipped with iMacs and MBPs with different speeds.  I think the earlier brand being a slow dog most of the time.   

I called Apple yesterday and got the, we don't have that information sir.  I also send an email to feedback explaining that it's probably a good idea to let professionals who are spending nearly 4000$ USD for a rMBP to know the specs of the storage so we can know if it meets our speed needs. With all that said, I welcome all of you to post speed tests of your rMBP.  You can do this with 2 tests that I am aware of.  If anyone knows of others, please let me know.  Please also post your basic model specs, like rMBP 16GB 768GB?

1.  Reboot with no apps open

2.  Then run Blackmagic Speed Test or AJA System Test 

I'm sure the results will not be the same each time you run the test, but over a few tests, you can come up with an average.  You might not be able to run the test directly on your drive since Lion has locked us out of our own hard drives, so you might need to pick a folder in your user folder.

MacBook Pro :: Why Isn't There 512gb Flash Storage On A Retina 2.3

Jun 27, 2012

I'm toggling between the big three MBPs:  Retina display doesn't really jump at me [I'm old], but the legacy Pro with 512GB SSD is just as expensive with less RAM than the Retina 2.6.  The 2.3 is more economical but only offers 256GB flash and I already have over 300GB on my current MBP.  I am a writer and have extensive files of research, loads of music and photos [hobbies]. I don't play games on my MBP…mostly writing and some use for Keynote presentations.  I confess that I don't get the daisy-chain deal and have never used a HD for additional storage, just back-ups.  I've never had to concern myself with external storage till now. Is that a major consideration [or a steep learning curve] or am I doing the pixie-dust drill Apple marketing wants us ALL to do?

MacBook Air :: Can Determine Where The Extra Storage Went

Nov 5, 2010

Yesterday I completed a 4 hour backup of my 64 Gb iPad on my 11" MBA. I started with 75 GB available before I synced and backed up my iPad and then checked it again after the sync completed and ended up with 67 GB available. I can't figure why I dropped so much storage after everything backed up. I checked my mobile sync folder and can only attribute 2.25 GB as my backup size for my ipad which means I lost an additional 5.75 GB and is being tied up somewhere on my flash drive. Could anyone please give me a suggestion or idea in how I can determine where the extra storage went?

MacBook Air :: More Storage Space - Another Wireless HD?

May 8, 2009

It came the time i knew it was going to come when i bought by MAB rev.1: I need more storage space. So far, I have been burning all movies on DVDs, but now i need space for music and pics. What is your advice? I do not want to buy a wired device, because MAB has only one USB port. At the same time they told me that the Time Capsule does not really work very well, and i do not really need another wireless router anyways. Would you guys reccomend another wireless HD? Which one? Or, put differently, what solution did you go for?

ICloud :: Macbook Air Running Out Of Storage?

Apr 15, 2012

I have a macbook air 128g and am running out of storage space.  I am wondering if I can use icloud as a primary storage for my media files (Photos, music, video, etc).  Then I could potentially remove from hard drive to free up space.  I am concerned if this is possible and what the cons would be.  I am thinking that Itunes library and photos would not be as quickly accesible as it would be using the hard drive.

Hardware :: Recovering / 16GB Flash Drive Has Lost Most Of It's Storage Space

Feb 8, 2010

I have a Sandisk Cruzer 16GB flash drive, which was working fine for months. It was formatted as FAT32 so I could move stuff back and forth between my tech school computer and my mac. I pulled the files off of it, and put an anti-malware program on it to troublshoot a netbook for class. The size of the drive is now shrinking, down currently to 43.5KB. I have no idea what may be causing it, or how to stop it.

MacBook Air :: Handling Storage Of ITunes Libraries

Jul 28, 2010

I recently got a used MBA and everything is great, although I am still adjusting to the 80gb hdd. So my question is how do you guys handle the storage of your itunes libraries. My options right now seem to be: Keeping the entire library on my server and using a script that allows me to download music on my MBA but have it moved to the server then deleted off the MBA.or Keeping all my music on the MBA and accepting a low amount of free space.

MacBook Air :: Using An External HD For Both Storage AND Time Machine?

Mar 14, 2012

Bear with me guys, I'm not sure where to put this question. I figured that because my Macbook Air (and it's limited storage space) was the reason for my needing an external HD I thought this would be the best place. My MBA has run out of storage and I bought a Seagate External HD to move my stuff onto. I guess my question is: What's the best way to combine the external HD with the MBA? Here are a few of the things on my mind: 

-Most of the space is taken up by my user folder right now such as itunes, photos, etc. If I copy that folder to the external drive it would alleviate a large part of my issue, at least for the time being. Eventually I will hit the storage capacity as I add applications over time I guess, so this is a temporary solution (although I free up 27gb of space this way). Can I designate a folder on the external drive as the default for programs like imovie and iphoto like I can with itunes? 

-I KNOW there is a way to set the external drive as some kind of default drive but is this feasible? It would be a hinderance if I needed to have it connected at all times to access even applications (which I assume to be the case? 

-I also wondered about partitioning the external HD and using one partition for additional storage and the other for time machine? It's a 1TB hard drive, and I figure I could make a 100GB partition to use with time machine (my MBA only has a 64gb capacity) and use the other 900GB for files. Is this even possible or does time machine need it's very own separate drive? Anyway, this doesn't necessarily ask many specific questions and I apologize if it appears a little disjointed. I'm looking for help and opinions on the best way to use this new piece of equipment to compliment my MBA.

I know it may be hard to believe, but flash videos now run with about 40% of the CPU as before, and there is no more maxing out the CPU or temperature when running video.

MacBook Air :: Finding Wireless Storage For Time Machine

Sep 8, 2008

While I would LOVE to get a 1TB Time Capsule and use it with Time Machine on my MBA, that is a whole lot of money when I already have a wireless router that works just fine and I can find 1TB of storage for much cheaper than that... My question is, what are my other options? I have a Mac mini so my first thought was to plug a big ol' USB HD into that and have the MBA backup to that... Well I could access files on the HD from the MBA just fine but Time Machine refused to use it for backups...

I have seen little wireless adapter boxes with USB ports for adding printers and HD's to your home network, would something like this work or would I run into the same issue with Time Machine not wanting to use it as a backup device?

MacBook Air :: Transfer ITunes Music Library To External Storage?

I'm a first time user for Mac and I've never ever had a laptop with a 256GB storage. So here are some of my concerns:

Do I have to sacrifice my music library?
What if I transfer my musics to the external storage and download it into Itunes?
Does it mean I have to connect the external storage everytime I connect my Ipod?
Or I can only choose a certain amount of songs to put in?.

However, my Gmail account is large enough that it fills my SSD. I need the mail application to store the message on the HD. I can't find an option to make that happen.

Anyone know of a work around?

MacBook Air :: External Storage - Faster Light USB Drive To Hold Media

Oct 30, 2010

My main computer is a MPB17 with 256gb SSD and 750gb HD in an optibay. I have huge media libraries and like to have ready access to all my photos and videos. I have a Gen 1 Air that I use at home for mail and surfing and I have been using my iPad for mail and web when out. I have a max spec 11" Air arriving this week. It weighs the same as my iPad with Vaja case so I'm going to take it everywhere and leave the iPad for a reader in bed. Now I'm starting to think I might leave the 17" in my office and sync the 11" Air up and use if when I'm out. Problem is I want a fast, light USB drive to hold my media. Ideally with USB and FW so I can sync it fast with the MBPro.

MacBook Air :: Some Flash Videos Cause To Overheat?

May 13, 2009

Some flash videos and particular sites cause my MBA to overheat and results in choppy playback, but for the most part the temp isn't a problem. Generally the temp is just fine, but as I progress through the video it gets more and more choppy. Eventually it's unwatchable. It doesn't matter how long I leave the MBA to rest/cool (minutes or hours) the playback is just as choppy when I restart.

I'm confused because I thought the playback issue was related to heat

Any ideas? My apologies if I've missed the answer in another thread.
