As you can see from the image above, finder is showing that apps are taking up nearly 30 GB, nearly 25 GB less than system information. What is causing this or which one is the actual size of the apps. It's not as if I'm runing out of space , I'm just a bit curious.

Pressing the power button on the main unit, the button lights, then flashes, long-short, long-short, etc.Nothing else happens - no screen, no chime, no disk activity. can I get this (and other) Power-on Self Test (POST) information?
I was very keen on hearing that you can distribute a part of your memory (Ram) to the integrated HD graphics. I upgraded from 4 gb to 8gb and my vram increased automatically from 384Mb to 512Mb. If this is possible Could i use more of the ram as Vram ?

I'll be fitting my new 09 mac mini internal hard drive hopefully tonight. I want to copy all the information (programs etc) onto my new hard drive before I install it. Whats the best way of going about this? I already have an external caddy, so am I right in thinking I can put the new hard drive into that, connect it up to my mini, format it, install osx, and use migration assistant, or I vaguely remember something called 'cloner' or something similar to that name to copy all the data? That when all the info is copied I can take out the stock hard drive, remove the new drive from the external caddy and place it into the mac mini? Then it should boot up fine?
Question about MacBook Pro (13-inch, Early 2011) with Intel HD Graphics 3000. I upgraded RAM with 16GB, and wonder if it is possible to allocate more then 512 MB of system memory for shared VRAM. Now system profiler shows 512 MB shared VRAM, the same like it was with 8 GB RAM before the RAM upgrade.
"About integrated video on Intel-based Macs" topic [URL] mentions MBPs with 8 GB of RAM only.
I posted my G4 Powerbook on craigslist, and, after filtering out the nigerian scammers, I received some legit-seeming inquiries, a couple of which requested I print my system profiler information as a pdf and send to them so they could see how the machine is set up. One of them had an @apple.com email address, so it seemed like it was probably not a malicious request.
I had my computer worked on and the tech had to back up all my information and he stored it in a file and put it on my desktop. I now would like to reinstall all the pics, and other information. How do I do that?
I have my dad's old mac book pro and am wondering if it is possible to change the information to my information. For example when I emailed my wife an invitation on icalendar my dad got it as well on his email.
Like the title asks? How can this be done? I have my iMac and I want to transfer the large library of songs over and ethernet cable connected between the two Macs. I remember seeing this be done. How would I go about doing this?
I sometimes like to put times (e.g., 10pm) in the titles of my events. I do this because I want to see the time in the event title for certain events. Apple's ical thinks it knows what I want (it doesn't!) and deletes this information from the title, probably to schedule the event at that time, which is ridiculous because I sent the time of the event when I create it. how to turn this function off.

I just received my 1GB stick and put it in slot 4, however on restart the system only shows 2GB! (When it should show 4), saying slots 2 and 3 are empty.So I removed all the sticks and put this new one in slot 1... it doesn't boot up! It's a kingston MP1066/1G, purchased from ebuyer but what I did noticed was that the seal had already been broken
I have an early 2008 Macbook Pro (the ones released just before the switch to unibody) with the model of graphics card (NVidia 8600) that was faulty. I've experienced graphic glitches and the machine freezing since I bought it.My timeline with this machine is:I brought the machine to the Apple store where I got a replacement logic board.I still had the same problems, so I had to bring the machine back to the store, where they said they would replace the logic board again.
I've had my 15 inch Macbook Pro for almost four years and haven't had any major problems with it until today. I was browsing online when suddenly my screen was filled with this pixelated horizontal lines all across the screen.I restarted the computer... heard the start up chime then came a grey screen with the same lines, I can see the apple logo at the start up and the loading bar underneath it... then the screen turns blue, still with the lines and that is all I'm able to see
Both on my iPhone and my Mac, I have Messages configured to receive at both my phone number and my Apple ID. In both cases, I've set up the phone number to be the caller ID. Up to a few months ago, this worked. Now, however, the Mac only receives a random subset of messages sent to me. And whenever somebody tries to send me an iMessage they get "Not Delivered" — even when those messages have been delivered to my iPhone. This happens even when my Mac is switched off completely. (This makes iMessage somewhat useless, because the person sending me the message never knows whether I've received it or not.)
I can “solve” the problem by removing the phone number from Messages' configuration on my Mac. Re-adding it makes the problem return, though. I've also tried disabling and re-enabling iMessage completely on my Mac, but to no avail. I'd really like to be able to use Messages on my Mac transparently to answer iMessages sent to my phone number.
