MacBook Pro :: Replacement Keys - Switch Color

Jun 7, 2010

I have a late 2008 Unibody 15 inch MBP, and I kinda wanted to switch the color of the keys in some way. Is there anywhere where you can get keys of a different color that wouldn't interfere with the backlit keyboard?

Hardware :: Color Calibrating Monitor Using Color Meter - How To Use Color Meter And Save Color Profile

Feb 20, 2009

before switching to Mac, I used an "X-Rite Eye One Display 2" color meter device with software. You can find them most places like Amazon for about $150. The device should still work, but I can't find any software for it for the Mac. After going to the X-Rite web site, I could find no software at all for the Mac as it is only windows based.

Surely someone out there has used a color meter such as this one as they are quite popular especially for graphics artists that use professional graphic monitors. I am hoping someone can tell me how to use my color meter (USB), what software for Mac Leopard I need and how to save the color profile in the Mac OS.

MacBook Pro :: Switch To Another Available Wireless Network And Then Switch Back?

Dec 14, 2010

If I select from the menu bar another available wireless network (one without a password for example) and then switch back to my own wi-fi network, am I still safe?

Did the fact that I connected to another network present any risks?

I did not send any private info during that time, any risks of getting hacked?

I've been using itunes for a while and it just messed my entire music library up! I've found something that is more Winamp style for me named "Cog". Now my problem is that I want to control it with the F7, F8, F9 keys which are the rewind, play and forward keys, but when pressing any of them it works both on itunes and cog player. How can I disable the Itunes link to it? I want it to control only Cog player.

MacBook Pro :: How To Get A Replacement?

Dec 22, 2009

I have a Late 2008 15 MBP (Purchased March 2009). The display does not always remain closed. It occasionally pops up itself. I have sent it to Apple store twice.

The first time I brought it to the store, the genius bar observed the problem and said it's caused by weak magnets. So my laptop was sent to repair center.

Five days later, I picked up the laptop from the store and found they did not fix the problem and two screws at the bottom of the machine were missing.

The paperwork says they replaced display assembly due to "Sleep Function Not Working". WTF

I then sent the laptop to the same store for repair. This time the genius bar made a note on my laptop so that the staff at repair center could handle the issue carefully.

Yesterday, got my laptop back from FedEX. The problem was still there!! The paperwork says they replaced display assembly again. But this time the they found my problem.

I am 70 miles away from the store and it is irritated to drive back and forth.

I called Apple Care for a resolution. They apologized and said the only thing they could offer is to send me a prepaid shipping box and have the laptop repaired again.!!!

Guys, should I send my laptop in for the third time?? Or is apple supposed to offer a replacement? Please, don't say I am greedy... I spent all my college savings for this laptop and this makes me frustrated.

Thanks for all the commnets and suggestions. you guys rock!!

OK, after the second repair, i talked to their senior advisor. He said he is confident that the repair center will fix it this time. When we asked him for a replacement, he said "give us another try. If this repair does not solve the problem, we can discuss other options."

Today, I got my machine back from FedEX and they replaced the display assembly again... I already told their advisor my speculation which is magnets. It has nothing to do with display frame since they have replaced it three times and none of them solves the problem.

I already called the advisor and left a message for him... Hopefully he will call me back soon.

This is not a major issue. Why it is so difficult for Apple to fix it?

MacBook Pro :: MBP Apple SSD Replacement?

Oct 22, 2010

Since I don't have any experience replacing the hard disk myself nor know anyone that can (otherwise I would definitely opt for an X-25M);

if I deliver my 13'' MBP to the apple store and ask for an SSD placement (currently having the 5400 RPM drive), will I get one of the newer SSDs that support TRIM in boot camp?

Or can't you really know beforehand ...

Mac :: MacBook Air OEM Case Replacement

Jul 3, 2009

I recently picked up a MacBook Air for a great price. The only problem is that it was dropped and has significant denting and disfiguring to the aluminum case that is behind the screen with the glowing Apple logo. I got a quote of $650 from the Apple store to send it out for repair. That is way beyond what I am willing to spend for cosmetic damage. I started searching and found the bottom of the case as well as the top of the case and keyboard but have had no luck finding a replacement for the backing of the screen. Dies anyone know where I can pick one up?

In WIN7 environment I use Microsoft Publisher quite regularly, primarily as I have a need in a small business I run, to produce CD Covers....the small folded booklet inside a CD jewel case, and the back cover with the 2 foldup ends, to produce a CD's jacket and back cover. In a MAC world, I cant quickly find an APP that will do this.

MacBook Pro :: Get Logic Board Replacement?

Nov 5, 2010

I have an A1260 that looks like it's undergoing the problems repaired by this program: [URL] However, I've had this thing apart, replaced the hard drive with an SSD, the optical drive bracket is very bent from when I replaced the optical drive, my display bezel is cracked in two places and held up with duct tape, and it generally looks like hell. Will they still repair the logic board despite all the other, ahem, modifications? I could probably put the original parts back in, but despite that it will be obvious I've taken it apart. It is and was out of warranty when I performed these. Should I take it to a retail store or just call Apple and ship it to them?
