MacBook Pro :: Increase Harddrive Space - Faster Computer?

Jun 12, 2010

I am thinking of buying a MBP, and I want to do my research correctly .

I want to get the base model (the 2.66ghz seems like a ripoff...), but upgrade the harddrive space. If I increased it from the 240gb to the 500gb, would that make my computer faster? Or what would the effects of it be? I am just wondering to see whether I should go for he 500gb or the 320gb...I do not want to get the SSD since they are pretty expensive at this point.

MacBook :: Will Snow Leopard Increase Memory Capacity On The Unibody MacBooks?

Mar 6, 2009

We all know that you could never have enough memory in our computers, so I have a fairly simple question to ask. When OS 10.6.0 comes out a.k.a. Snow Leopard, will all the Intel Core 2 Duo machines have an increased ram capacity. It looks more and more everyday as if 4GB is becoming a standard in machines and all across the board (Dell,Hp,Apple) computer these days are handling 8GB of ram with ease. So does anybody know if when Snow Leopard comes out, will there be a potential for my MacBook to contain 8GB of ram.

OS X :: Memory Space Disappearing / Disk Space Reduces While Streaming Videos

Dec 2, 2009

I have been running out of hard drive space and have deleted a whole bunch of files... even deleted all the languages i didn't need from all my applications... about a week ago i freed up around 2GB.... but without saving and downloading anything my free space is now 70MB!! All I have been doing is watching streamed videos and I notice this reduces the drive space as I'm watching it!! Even opening firefox and some websites drops my memory by 0.1MB. I can't find anywhere where temporary files might be so i can delete them.

I never used to have this problem but I wonder if it has something to do with the fact that I now use wireless internet through a phone provider and a USB modem rather than my previous WiFi via cable broadband.

Can anybody shed some light on what is stealing my memory when browsing?

Intel Mac :: Increase Memory From 4GB To 8 Or More

Feb 15, 2012

I just bought my mac last month, and was thinking about down the line increasing the memory from 4GB to 8 or 16. But when I looked on Amazon, all I could find was memories and in the reviews everyone was talking about Macbooks, not iMacs. Could I use the same memory? 

Here's my system information, if it helps: Processor  2.7 GHz Intel Core i5 Memory  4 GB 1333 MHz DDR3 Graphics  AMD Radeon HD 6770M 512 MB Software  Mac OS X Lion 10.7.3 (11D50b) and:    Model Name:          iMac  Model Identifier:     iMac12,1  Processor Name:          Intel Core i5  Processor Speed:     2.7 GHz  Number of Processors:          1  Total Number of Cores:          4  L2 Cache (per Core):          256 KB  L3 Cache:          6 MB  Memory:          4 GB

Mac Mini :: Increase Memory To Run Sibelius 7?

Mar 29, 2012

I'm running my rather oldish Mac Mini with original 2GB memory, version 10.6.8 and have loaded Sibelius 7 onto it.  Whilst I've not got into using full orchstral scores yet, would it be worth me upgrading the memory in readiment?  If so, what memory should I upgrade it to and who should I go to for the memory? 

I'm also experiencing the "disk was not ejected properly" message which is very frustrating and it follows a recent upgrade to the above mentioned version.

Mac :: Increase The HD Space - Way To Design Windows?

Sep 3, 2009

if I want to increase the HD space I designated to Windows, how do I do so? I can easily adjust RAM and what not... but HD space seems fixed? I'm worried about running out.And my other question is... why is 256MB VRAM the max I can allow? According to microsoft's website... 128MB is the minimum recommended amount for Vista Ultimate... and my MBP only has 256MB on it.. so will maxing it out at 128 (max as in it's all vbox will allow) be ok for both windows and my mac? (I'm assuming it then only gives Mac OS 128MB

PowerPC :: How Increase Memory On 10GB Imac G3?

Oct 25, 2008

Hi there, a couple of easy questions I hope.

What is the simplest was to increase the memory on a 10GB Imac G3. 9.7GB are used up and there isn't much I can delete to free up space. It is a friend's computer, she is not mac savvy.

Also, I am considering rebooting the system as there is an account on there with a forgotten password and the original administrator password is long forgotten. What would be the best way to go about doing this? I have 10.4 os discs, with extra memory would this work ok?

Thanks in advance.

I have a unibody Macbook 2.4 with 4GB RAM, running the latest version of Leopard (10.5.5). In activity monitor, I see each process has uses virtual memory of over half a gig, with a total VM size of over 40GB. Is this normal? Is all this virtual memory eating space on my hard disk? Why does each process require so much virtual memory? Is all the software on my Macbook, bloatware?

The attachments show what I am saying. Do others also have similar VM statistics?how to increase memory size

Mac :: Westmere In New Mac Pro? - Speed Increase Come From DDR3 Memory

Jan 8, 2009

What do you guys think?I am also curious as to the clock speed of the new upcoming processors. Online it says the fastest one they have is 3.2 GHZ, so will the speed increase come from DDR3 memory and no frontside bus?Does anyone know the actual technical differences between the current processors and the upcoming, other than the memory and frontside bus?

OS X :: How To Increase Swap Space In Snow Leopard

Apr 13, 2010

I'm running a 64 bit Matlab simulation on an enormous dataset and OS X (not Matlab) is telling me I'm running out of space on my startup disk for "application memory". I've got 300GB of free space on the hard drive, and only 60GB used as swap. I think the limit I'm hitting is the 64th swap file.

Intel Mac :: Increase Free Space On Startup Disc?

Jun 5, 2012

I've backed up all the contents of my computer to a 1TB external hard drive connected by USB (LaCie Porsche). Time Machine is working perfectly with it! Now, I want to erase lots of files from the startup disc or do whatever I need to do in order that I might have way more available memory on the startup disc. I need to know that my backups of iPhoto are truly on the external drive, and then I need to do something so that the memory available on my desktop is maximized.

OS X :: Incredible Speed And Free Space Increase With Snow Leopard

Aug 31, 2009

Strange as it may seem, when I installed Snow Leopard, I immediately freed almost 40 gig on my Macbook pro (can't imagine why) and speed was increased by a factor of 2-3 times. One more thing is that parallels is now "almost" as fast as a native program, especially with Quicken for windows, which is the only reason that I use parallels.

MacBook Pro :: Cannot Use Memory Cards - Unable To Add / Delete Anything

Mar 12, 2012

I have had my MBP for just over a year now. I am thinking I have somehow altered my settings recently to cause this issue. I have had no problem before using memory cards (such as from my camera) on my MBP. Now, I can open them, but can't delete from them nor add to them.The cards are not locked. I bought a brand new card and popped it in and have the same issue, I can't add anything to it from my computer nor can I change the name on the card.
