MacBook Pro :: OWC Data Doubler Work With Stock Internal HD In Mid - 2010 15" I5?

Jul 31, 2010

Does the OWC Data Doubler work with the stock internal HD in the Mid-2010 MBP 15' i5? (Specs: 320GB Serial ATA; 5400 rpm) -from [URL] The reason I'm asking this is because I'm planning to switch out the stock internal HD with an SSD (Intel X25-M G2). Then use the stock HD and put it in the optical drive space for data storage.


MacBook Pro :: OWC Data Doubler With SSD Drive?

Oct 23, 2010

Has anybody tried one of these with an SSD drive to replace the optical drive? Other World Computing even sells these with their SSD drives. I'm thinking that a combination of one of these in a MBP 13 would allow me to have both a high capacity HDD and high performance SSD. I wonder if you would be able to shutdown the HDD to save battery life when not using?

MacBook Pro :: Massive Performance With 13 Mid 2010

Dec 11, 2010

I have been struggling with my Mac for weeks and weeks and before I finally decide to reinstall everything I wanted to turn to you experts for maybe the one hint that can resolve my problem: I have a 13 inch MBPro, mid 2010, basic version. Later I installed the WD Scorpio Blue 1 TB hard drive and copied the time machine backup. Shortly after, I recognized massive lags. I have quiet a few photos (3000 or so), 20gb of music and 40gb of films on this drive but only a few programs. Adium, Steam, Starcraft, MS Office, Skype, Growl and that is it I think. I use mobileme for synching, if that helps in any way.

Some examples: Sometimes youtube videos lag for a few seconds, even with HTML5, it takes 5 seconds to open a new tab in sapharie (again, only sometimes without any obvious rule)..................

MacBook Pro :: Mid 2010 10.7.3 Will Not Wake Up After Sleeping?

Mar 27, 2012

My laptop is a new to me MBP everthing seems to be working great but I noticed it will not wake up after sleeping for more than 5 mins or so.  I can hear a faint fan noise but the screen does not come on and no tap, click or swipe will wake it up. I've got to hold down the power button and wait awhile to get back up and running. I can provide more info,  I'd say I'm half literate when it comes to computers.

MacBook Pro :: Mid 2010 Will Not Wake From Sleep

May 17, 2012

I've lived with this as long as I care to live with this. My 17" MacBook Pro will not wake from sleep.  Space key, mouse click, closing lid and re-opening, disconnecting power and reconnecting -- nothing works.  When the display goes to sleep I have no alternative but to force a reboot with the power button.  I can't see how this can be good for my hard drives.  But to set the machine to never sleep will likely damage the display. 

I believe my firmware is up to date.  I'm running OS 10.6.8.  I recently reinstalled system software and updated everything but the problem persists. 

Here is my system info: I await your collective wisdom to flow over me.

MacBook Pro :: I7 Mid 2010 Textured Aluminum Lid

Nov 13, 2010

i have a question: Has anyone else noticed that the new mid 2010 macbook pros (i7) seem to have a rougher more textured aluminum lid than the older ones or any other macbook (pros)? Background info: I first thought this was just me being too fussy about minor details. I compared my brand new mbp with an older one from 2009 and definitely felt the difference between the aluminum of the lid. I went to several stores and they were surprised themselves about the textured aluminum lid. They first told me this was some kind of production fault and I should swap the macbook pro. Well, the next day after cloning my drive and bringing the macbook in for a swap they told me that they looked at other macbooks and they figured this texture thing seemed to be standard. To be honest - I didn't believe them because they couldn't show it to me hands on - so I went to another store where I found mid 2010 macbooks with a more smooth aluminum lid than the one I have.

Well all in all I am quite confused. I googled the hell out of this topic and only found one post confirming my issue - here I don't know if Apple has some kind of release doc for each charge of macbooks they produce, or maybe some tolerance level for the fabrication of the aluminum.

MacBook Pro :: Mid-2009 Versus 2010 -- Any Cosmetic Changes?

Jun 17, 2010

I'm just curious, though, as to whether there are any actual differences at all between the aluminum enclosure for the 2010 model and the mid-2009 one. For example, I'm positive the lid on my new MBP feels much heavier when I close it / open it than my previous one did, but I can't wondering if that's just my imagination ("it's new, therefore it must be different somehow").

Having gotten this one as a free replacement for my previous faulty machine (and had AppleCare thrown in too, talk about customer service!), I obviously no longer have my old one, so I can't compare the two side-by-side... so my question is, has anyone who has both models noticed those sorts of little differences, or am I convincing myself there are changes that don't exist?

MacBook Pro :: Replacing Mid 2010 MBP 13 Logic Board

Oct 25, 2010

i have a macbook pro 13 mid 2010 which has got a liquid damaged board. The price of a new board + labour from apple is too much and the price of a new logic board from eBay is $1000. I am now thinking of replacing the logic board from the older unibody model which costs around $500. Everything looks the same inside but has anyone had any experience or knowledge of this actually working?

MacBook Pro :: Ethernet Dynamic DHCP Not Working On Mid-2010 With 10.7.3

May 14, 2012

Ever since I upgraded to 10.7.3, my mid-2010 cannot connect to to internet via Ethernet any more (wireless works fine). 

Basically, the Network utility GUI shows that a correct IP address has been assigned via DHCP, but I get no internet. 

If I now check the output of 'ifconfig', I see 'en0' having a local IP address assigned, i.e. or similar. 

Seems like a software bug of some sort. Is it getting fixed in 10.7.4?

MacBook Pro :: Mid 2010 Starts To Get Sluggish And Eventually Wont Startup?

Jun 17, 2012

I have a MacBook pro 13" that I bought around April 2010 (right when they switched to the 4GB of RAM and GeForce 320M video card)The original problem started with my trackpad movements becoming very sluggish. This eventually led to a complete lockup at the apple screen. I did everything suggested in previous posts (reset pram ECT). Nothing worked so I reinstalled OSX and everything was fixed. 

About a week later the problem started again with the same exact outcome. Now after reinstalling a third time, I have this very wierd screen on my screen. Its hard to explain so please see pictures. After sitting on the apple logo for about 5 min, this is now my screen...

The problem is intermittent, and it will be fine for a day, then it will just decide it doesn't want to work.

MacBook Pro :: 13" Mid 2010 - Seagate 500GB Momentous XT HD Upgrade - Performance

Sep 25, 2010

- Intel Core 2 Duo 2.66Ghz
- 320 GB 5.400 RPM

I needed to upgrade this unit in order to increase performance with VMWARE Fusion as I needed to use a few Windows 7 features and Applications... and although Mac OS is OK... I have to recognize that some features of Windows 7 are better and I need some only windows applications.

So I researched online the option of upgrading memory and HD. I read mixed opinions and experiences with non Apple Memory. But took the chance and during a recent trip to the US I purchased the Kingston upgrade kit... installed it... and so far no problems. I got a very noticeable increase in startup and working performance with Windows 7 and Fusion. Unfortunately I lost my notes regarding performance readings... sorry.

I was very intrigued with the Hybrid Seagate 500GB Momentus XT. Also read a lot of mixed experiences. I also picked up a unit during my trip to the US but waited to install it when I got back to Spain. I just installed it and made some simple timings to check the performance......................

MacBook Pro :: Mid-2010 17" MBP Options With Battery & Sleeping?

Jan 2, 2011

I recently purchased a 17" Mid-2010 MBP and put in 8GB and a OCZ Vertex 2 SSD drive. Ever since the upgrades and clean install of OS X, my system seems to not like to go to sleep when the battery gets low.Example, I was surfing the net earlier and the battery got down to 5% and I didn't get any type of warning that the battery was low. It went all the way down to 1% and then 0% and then just shut off instead of putting itself into sleep mode like it did before the harddrive and memory upgrade.

MacBook Pro :: Replacing SuperDrive With 2-nd HDD In New - Mid 2010 - MBP 13" 2.66 GHz

May 13, 2010

Tired of constantly carry with an external HDD, so I think put the 2-nd HDD in place of SuperDrive (model MATSHITA DVD-R UJ-898). The main problem in selecting enclosure for it. Virtually all of the shops, where I found it on sale, listed compatibility with all MBP Unibody 13 ", but when I ask for producers, with the specific issue of compatibility this MBP model, the most common response - we did not try, but it looks to be compatible.

Maybe someone that already had occasion to conduct a similar operation (or just hear) the new MBP 13 "? Is the new model all the same as in the old unibody or what that difference is?

Well, the question about the choice of 9.5 mm SATA Optical Bay SATA Hard Drive Enclosure . I found the following models from different manufacturers, which is better? (Or can suggest any other day, one I missed something)

MCE OptiBay Hard Drive

9.5 mm SATA Optical Bay SATA Hard Drive Enclosure @ ebay 1

9.5 mm SATA Optical Bay SATA Hard Drive Enclosure @ ebay 2

MaxConnect Optical bay kit

MacBook Pro :: Mid 2010 Had Accidental Liquid Spillage But Still Turns On But The Screen Is Black?

May 26, 2012

It was just an accidental liquid spill, but however my macbook pro has been acting up before all this mishap with the graphics. I thought is was just nothing so I didn't care to bring it to an apple store but when I had to bring it and check it out using the Nvidia video test it presumed a failed video card. The genuius said it will take 2 weeks to be fix until several days later I recieved a call saying it can not be fix due to a foreseen amount of liquid damage. I've spilt other liquid items but wiped it off the keyboard quickly and it still worked. I'm using my MBP right now with an external monitor, it still works fine but with the issue of the screen being pitch black.

It comes back on after re-boot with no apparent problems but seems to be occuring more frequently, so I need to get this fixed.
