MacBook Pro :: Express 34 Card Slot Use As 2nd Dedicated Firewire Port

Apr 28, 2010

I would like to have two firewire devices connected to my MBP but would prefer not to share bandwidth. If I purchased a firewire express card would that provide me with a 2nd dedicated firewire bus. It seems based the express 34 bus architecture that this would work however.

Mac :: MBP 17" And Express Card Slot?

Apr 26, 2010

I have a question for you about the ExpressCard slot of the new MacBook Pros.. I'm going to buy (maybe today) my first Mac and I'd like to buy the 17", since I need a portable desktop replacement... one of the reasons why I'd like to buy the 17" (apart from the very nice screen resolution) is that it has an ExpressCard slot which enables you (I hope) to expand the capabilities of your MBP in the future... My question is if the ExpressCard is version 1 or 2, because I'd like to buy in the future an ExpressCard with USB 3 ports and only the ExpressCard 2 can support the specifications of USB 3 (5 Gbps), is it right? Do you think there will be USB 3 ExpressCards for the MBPs?

Mac :: 15" MBP With Express Card Slot Cons?

Aug 6, 2009

I am thinking about purchasing one of the early releases of the MBP 15", before they replaced the expresscard slot with the SD Card slot. As a filmmaker, the expresscard slot allows on-site ingestion of Sony's and Panasonic's SxS and P2 cards - a nice utility. I also don't use point-and-shoots, so the SD card has zero utility for me.I just wanted to make sure that, before I buy the previous revision, there is nothing I will be missing by purchasing the older edition. I remember that they widened the color gamut on the MBPs by 30% with the update, but this is really insignificant as their color accuracy isn't thaaaat great anyway.

MacBook Pro :: 13" Line In/out Audio Port Vs Dedicated Audio Ports On 15"?

Apr 18, 2010

when you're recording, will the sound quality of the dual function line in audio port on the 13" be as good as the dedicated one on the 15"?

edit: the reason I'm wondering is because I want to convert old collections of vinyl records into digital copies at the highest quality possible and need to know if the 'line in' on the 13" will work good for that.

MacBook Air :: MBA SD Card Slot With Standard 4gb Ram?

Jun 12, 2009

Is it possible to put an SD Card slot into the RevC MBA?, I just read that an SD card can be used to boot the MBP in case the HDD Fails. I would think that Apple might be able to squeeze a SD Slot in there to make the MBA even better. Also, the Rev-D should have the SD-Card Slot and a standard 4GB RAM.

OS X :: Where Is The MacBook Pro 17 Inch SD Card Slot

Jul 2, 2009

One thing I hate about Mac's are there lack of Port's. Although I am a sincere/proud Mac Owner. I always wondered why Apple had lack of ports. Now my question:

Why doesen't the 17inch MBP have an SD CARD Slot and 4 USB PORT'S? Can we look forward to seeing this in the next update?

Also I think the Baseline MBP (13inch) should have at least 3 USB Ports too! For the 15 inch It should have 4 also.

MacBook Pro :: Creative Uses For The SD Card Slot?

Aug 30, 2009

I'm still trying to decide whether or not to give up my expresscard slot for an SD card slot. If I could figure out something useful to do with it, that would persuade me. I don't do hard core photography yet, and if I did, I could always just USB the camera.Does anyone use the SD card slot for something other than photography? I figured maybe it could be used like a floppy drive to organize certain projects or files but those could always be backed up to CD/ DVD. Not to mention, if you store the files on your hard drive, time machine would back them up.

MacBook Pro :: SD Card Slot Speed?

Apr 25, 2012

I have a 95MB/s UHS I and Class 10 SD card.  Using Blackmagic Disk Speed Test, I get 17 MB/s write and 19.8 MB/s read speeds.   Following the information in this apple support document, the speed of my internal card reader is 480Mb/s.  Depending upon how you convert bits to bytes, that should be in the 57-60MB/s range. 

Anyone know I can get it running at the max?

The memory stick alone fits into the slot and I thought that would work since it has on my PC in the past, but that doesn't work either. What kind of adapter do I need to get?
