Mac Pro :: 2XRaid 32GB Cache V.s 3XRaid 16GB Cache?
I need to populate the bays of my new MacPro 2.66 with 5GB RAM. The stock HD turns out to be a Seagate 250GB HD ST3250820A. I've found them online and wonder if I just should RAID three or four of them as opposed to one Seagate 500GBs or 750 with 32GB cache? These would all be a Raid run by Apple software not a RAID card.

Mac Pro :: Samsung Spinpoint 32mb Cache F1 Vs Seagate Barracuda 32mb Cache
Which one of these 500gb drives is better? I've been browsing Newegg for two hours now reading reviews. The Seagate drives seem to come with bad firmware that causes performance and cache recognition issues. The Samsung drives have a high failure rate. Whats the real deal? Has anyone here had any bad experiences with either drives?

MacBook :: Impact Of L2 / L3 Cache On Design / Drafting Purposes?
I am curious to know if L2/L3 cache impacts the performance of a macbook being used for Design and Drafting purposes. Of course this involves retrieving and real-time changes that will be made on a server and/or the macbook itself. Secondly, how significant will the functioning depend between a 3mb and a 4mb L2/L3 cache?

Mac Pro :: HDD Buffer Vs Internal Drive Cache?
Does it make sense to put a hdd with a 64MB buffer in a Mac Pro which supports a 32MB cache? I was considering buying either 1TB or 2TB drives with 64MB buffers but I saw in the Mac Pro specs [URL] that the internal drive bays support "1TB or 2TB hard drives, Serial ATA 3Gb/s, 7200 rpm, 32MB cache". I realize (or I think I do) that the hdd's buffer is independent of the disk controller's cache. But does it make sense to use these somewhat more expensive drives in the Mac Pro? Or would using hdd's with 32MB buffers be preferred?

Mac Pro :: 32 MB Cache In 1 TB Hard Disk In Early 2009 MP?
If you bought an Early 2009 Mac Pro with the 1 TB hard disk drive, what is the brand and model? I am most interested in knowing if the 1 TB HDD is a 32 MB cache or a 16 MB cache.

I believe if you get your Mac Pro with the 640 KB HDD it's only with a 16 MB cache.

MacBook Pro :: How To Do System Clean Up
Having made the swap from Windows to OS-X some 18 months ago I must report a very happy new playground has been found. However as its been awhile I'm sure the system could do with a tidy; I'm unclear on the best approach to this in Mac world?

I'm still thinking along the lines of 'windows' disk defrags, registry cleaning etc... Clearly I haven't bothered to do much research and I'm taking the lazy approach - but I'm sure someone will be able to save me much running around - I hope.

MacBook Pro :: How To Clean Fans
I've been advised to clean my MBP fan's out with compressed air, since I've owned it for 6 months now. So my question is, where would I actually spray the compressed air without opening the chassis? I'm scared to use it on the keyboard because I've heard keys popping off that way, and wondering if I spray into the vent below the screen, I would just blow the dust deeper into the computer...

MacBook Pro :: Keep New Keyboard Clean?
I just got my new MacBook Pro today. One problem I had with my old black MacBook is that the keys got really dirty. dust fell between the cracks, but, more annoying, from typing, the finish wore off and got shiny/greasy. Is there anything I can do to mitigate this problem, particularly the problem of ruining the nice finish on the keys with skin oil?

MacBook Pro :: How To Clean Fan
I know the fan will eventually collect a lot of dust.

Do I need to take the bottom of the computer off to clean that? Does that void the warranty?

I don't even know if it is necessary though. Here are my temps. I don't know what they are supposed to be:

MacBook Pro :: How To Clean The Keyboard
I currently have a 15"UMBP, since the keyboard is black. I can some kind of wear on the keyboard, it seems shiner on the letters of it. Not as much of a matte like finish on them almost as if it's grease but I don't think it is.

Does anyone clean there keys? If so what are you using and can you still clean them while they're on the computer?

I'm looking into what is good to keep my MBP screen clean from residue such as saliva (from the dreaded coughs) and dirt.

What do you guys use to keep your screen free from residue? Do you guys use any solutions?

Would using a lint-free cloth (such as the ones made for wiping spectacles with) work?

MacBook Pro :: Can I Clean Install Like Pc?
I have recently switched from PC to MAC (actually waiting for my Mac to arrive any day now!).

I have one question though...is it necessary to reformat a Mac HD like I would on my PC?

I find that I have to do a fresh install of Windows about every 6 months as my PC gets bogged down with stuff.

Is this the same on a Mac or does a Mac stay "cleaner" as you use it (if that makes sense..)?

Final Cut Pro :: Thumbnail Cache Files Slow At Start Up?
FCP 7.0.2 has been starting up slowly on my machine for the past few months now. I don't know what changed on my system that provoked this issue (a software update?). The beachball rolls between 2 and 30 seconds while FCP loads. Regardless of the size or complexity of a project, FCP takes longer and longer to load as days go by.I searched the forums and found out some solutions:1)trash my FCP user preferences (Library/Preferences/Final Cut Pro User Data).

Applications :: Safe To Delete Final Cut Pro Cache Folders?
So I have created a video presentation for a project I am working on using Final Cut Pro. I noticed Final Cut Pro creates a default folder in Documents called "Final Cut Pro Documents." This folder contains six additional folders:

1. Audio Render Files
2. Autosave Vault
3. Capture Scratch
4. Render Files
5. Thumbnail Cache Files
6. Waveform Cache Files

Is it safe to delete these six folders? I wouldn't otherwise care, but collectively they are taking up 25 GB on my HD. I'm not planning to delete the actual FCP project files and their attached media, but rather the above six folders which appear to be cache? Do I run any risk of losing my entire presentation if I delete these six folders, or is it simply a matter of just re rendering my project if I delete them?

MacBook Pro :: To Clean Out The Dust On The Inside?
I just bought a new MacBook Pro. I do plan on getting AppleCare within the first year of ownership to extend the warranty. My question is this:

1. Can I take my MacBook Pro to a computer repair shop to clean out the dust on the inside during the first 3 years while it's covered under AppleCare without voiding my warranty? I usually like to get it cleaned every six months.

I have been taking my 2006 Black MacBook to get cleaned every six months ever since the AppleCare ended on it. The repair guy says it's good to do this about every six months.
