MacBook Air :: Quick Start For 13"?

Apr 2, 2012

I bought a new MacBook Air 11" in April 2011 (as birthday gift to myself), but I wanted a larger screen, so I bought a new MacBook Air 13" in December.Now I notice that the 11" starts directly, much quicker than the 13", which needs up to half a minute to be ready. The marker does not move for 15 seconds. Why is it so, and what can I do to get the same quick start from sleep mode?Otherwise they are both fine.

MacBook :: Page Jumps Suddenly - Quick Motion

Apr 16, 2009

New to this website and I'm by all means not a computer genius so please bear with me and I've been having some issues that I'm curious about and am hoping that I can get some answers hear. I bought a white Macbook about 9 months ago (switched from a PC) and I make great use of the two finger scrolling feature. I tend to put one finger on the bottom of the trackpad (just above the button) and scroll with another. Sometimes while I'm scrolling through a website, the page "jumps" as if I did a quick motion or hit the space bar to move the page down and I then have to search back through the page I was on to where I was reading, etc. I'm curious if my trackpad has issues (everything else is fine and it only "jumps" occasionally) and needs repair or replacement. If not, is there any way to prevent this?

MacBook :: ISight Turning On By Itself?

Sep 22, 2008

He has a stock white 2.2GHz MacBook, the 2.2GHz SR, with 1GB RAM. Now, recently, he noticed that the green indicator light next to his iSight camera, is always on, even if he just started up his 'Book. If he tries to open Photo Booth, all he gets is not a picture on the Photo Booth window, but in fact, just plain black inside the window, with no error message. Does anyone know what is going on?

MacBook Pro :: 13" Use The ISight With Skype

Sep 30, 2010

I've had my 13" MacBook Pro for 10 months and I'd always tried to use the iSight with Skype here in Australia but it never worked. I just put it down to bad integration as I'd read on forums that it's a common issue. I finally took the MBP into Doncaster (Melbourne, Australia) Apple Store after I'd tried everything else and they gladly replaced the whole screen within the hour. I just wanted to say that I'm suitably impressed with the service they offered. The genius ran tests and tried to get it working and accommodated my request for a quick turnaround. Is this a common issue with the iSight and is this a common turnaround time for a repair?

MacBook Air :: FaceTime Vs ISight Cameras?

Oct 20, 2010

So I noticed that Steve kept saying that the new MacBook Air shipped with the FaceTime camera. I was wondering about this all day long, so I have to ask now.

On the Notebook comparison page of, it even notes that they are 2 different features. What on earth is the difference?

Does the new FaceTime program only work on the Air? Is it a better quality camera? Maybe it's just that they wanted to drop the iSight name, and bring FaceTime to the computer audience?

MacBook Air :: New MBA ISight Camera Resolution?

Oct 25, 2010

Now that we have this new "FaceTime Camera," I'm curious to know how the resolution compares to the previous iSight camera. Is it still .3 megapixels or do we finally have a 1.3 megapixel camera like all the other Macs?? Can someone open PhotoBooth, take a picture of and do a "Get info" please?

MacBook Air :: FaceTime Camera Vs ISight?

Nov 2, 2010

Apple calls the camera built into the MBA a "FaceTime" camera instead of an iSight camera. What exactly does this mean?

From my understanding, the available APIs from Apple only allow the iSight and FaceTime cameras to record at the same resolution (VGA 640x480). However, the iSight camera is capable of 1280x1020...does this mean the FaceTime camera isn't?

it's the subject of my next YouTube video and demo.

MacBook :: Isight Turning On At Startup?

Mar 12, 2008

My isight camera (as indicated by the green light) on the macbook turns on by itself during startup. Funnily enough, no applications are open that utilizes the camera (eg. skype, ichat, photobooth). The only way I can turn it off is by shutting the macbook off and turning it on again. Not even a restart will do, as the green light is still on after a restart.

MacBook :: ISight Camera Turning On By Itself

Sep 30, 2009

I have a white macbook (the gen. before the unibody), everything works fine except that sometimes the isight camera turn on by itself. This sometimes happens immediately at the start up and other times when the system is already loaded. The result is the same, the isight camera doesn't work and when i try to use it i get simply a black screen. For to make it works again i need to shutdown the mac and sometimes even to remove the battery. I don't think it can be a Trojan or some virus since i switched to Snow few weeks ago doing a full installation from zero and this trouble still occur even with the new system?

Sometimes I use iMovie and my iSight camera for lengthy recordings (6+ minutes). But I need a little more flexibility with camera angles. Is there a camera available that works though Bluetooth, USB, wifi, etc that basically becomes a detached iSight? Or do I need to buy a hand held video camera?
