MacBook Pro :: Safely Interchange Laptop Components?

Jun 3, 2012

I have a broken MBP that wont boot, repair is too expensive so I will be buying a new one.  I plan on changing out the hard drive (because it has 500 GB capacity) and also the ram (total of 6 GB's) and putting them into my new notebook of the same year and model.  However I am curious: if there is a problem with one of these components (hard drive, ram) is there a chance that it can infect the new computer?  I don't know much about computers in this regard and I don't want to transfer and issue from my old MBP (Which repairer's said could be a bad video graphic card but they are not sure).

I just hate getting scratches easily on my brand spanking new power adapter. Although I'm really, really careful now, I wish Apple upgrades the cheap looking adapters in the near future.

MacBook Air :: Power Adapters And Converters Are Not Working Well?

Apr 24, 2008

If so, how do I avoid frying my macbook air and other electrics, like my iPhone, camera battery, and shaver. ?had that built in or something, so as to just buy a weird 3-prong adapter...I saw the set of adapters available on Apple's site, but those would then only work for my laptop charger. I'm sure I could find the UK 3-prong to US-adapter... but what about voltage? I've never traveled overseas and had to convert power before

MacBook :: How To Find Alliterative Source For Adapters?

Feb 3, 2009

After purchasing the alu. macbook, I find my self buying all the necessities: again. quit frankly its getting old. It does seem like most apple computers are what some might call overpriced to begin with, but I am ok with that; you get what you pay for and i don't mind paying the mac tax. But as I purchase the odds and ends required to use my computer in the real world, it seems as if apple is taking advantage of the fact that our computers lack some of the hardware to connect with to overhead projectors, etc. (as most PCs can). I mean $29.99 for a 3 in. piece of plastic and wire???

I was just wondering if anybody has found an alliterative source for adapters?

How To Identify MacBook Pro Models

Apr 16, 2012

I'm trying to figure out which Model of Mac I have so I can install more RAM, but the chart given is conflicting. I have a 17" Macbook Pro that I bought from BestBuy with Model Identifier "MacBookPro6,2" but I look on this chart here, and the only 6,2 is a 15" Model. I don't get it.For the most part, the "MacBook Pro6,1" defines my hardware I guess, but I'm concerned as to why there is no 6,2 17" on the chart when clearly I own one.

MacBook Air :: Monoprice Mini Display Port Adapters

Jun 5, 2009

the mini displayport to DVI and VGA adapters from I received them yesterday, and I was able to test them today with the Dell 24" LCD (1900x1200) at work, and both were able to drive the screen.They aren't quite as spiffy looking as the Apple-branded ones, but the combined total with shipping for both was a less than 1.5 one of the Apple ones.

MacBook Pro :: Swapping HDDs Between Different Models ?

Jan 20, 2010

I have a Mid-2007 MBP... I upgraded it to a 500gb HDD some time ago and I'm currently running 10.6.2.

If I were to buy a new MBP (hopefully a Core i5 one if/when they come out), would it be possible to simply swap the HDD from the old MBP into the new one?

I'm aware that Time Machine and/or imaging products like Carbon Copy Cloner and SuperDuper are ways of achieving the same thing, but I'm interested whether the physical hard drive swap would work in theory.

MacBook Pro :: CS Major Considering For Couple Models

May 22, 2010

Back in February, I purchased the (at the time) base mode 15" MacBook Pro, which I shouldn't have returned (idiot). I spec whored and went for the Sony VPCF115FM/B, with i7 which has proven to be a catastrophic and horrendous piece of machinery.

It is coming in from its second round of repairs (still will have poor screen, battery life, and dismal 900MHz throttling when on battery). I am looking to get a Mac to replace it, and I've come down to a few options.

1) Get the baseline 13" model with hopefully the new BTS deal.
2) Get the mid line MBP from last generation refurbished for $1529 (2.66, 9600 320GB 4GB).
3. Get the low-end 15" from this gen with the BTS deal (required for me to afford it), and sell the iPod/Printer.

Do I need the power and screen resolution (size doesn't matter to me) or would the cheaper 13" cover me?

MacBook Pro :: Finding Difference Between CPU Models?

Aug 10, 2010

I understand that some of the early core 2 duo's are different than the current core 2 duo's being used in the current 13" MBP's. I understand that some are T8000 series or T9000 series (I think??).

My question really is what is the difference between the earleir C2D's used and the current ones. Some of the earlier ones seem to have more L2 cache, do the newer ones run on a lower voltage? Have a different chip? Are quicker/slower?

MacBook Pro :: Connecting Dual Monitors / Usb Monitor Adapters Or DVI Connections

Sep 7, 2009

I have a new 2010 MBP and I'd like to hook up two external monitors to it, more specifically, two ASUS VW246H 24-Inch Widescreen LCD Monitors. Either via HDMI or DVI connections. I've found various usb monitor adapters, but i've read that many can't quite 'keep up' and I really can't seem to find a solid solution out there.
So does anyone have a dual monitor setup they currently use, if so, what are you using to connect the mini display port to both external monitors.

MacBook Pro :: Do Magsafe Adapters Only Initiate Charging After Laptop Closed

Apr 18, 2012

I purchased a replacement magsafe 85w adapter for my MacBook Pro and was wondering if the new cable requires you to have your laptop closed to initiate the charge process on your computer.I notice that if I attach it with my laptop powered on and my computer open it will not initiate a charge (light up on the cable or show the charge icon on screen). If I power down my laptop and close the lid, disconnect and reconnect the magsafe cable the light on the cable will light up and initiate the charge. I tried this also on sleep mode with the laptop closed and the light on the cable started up without disconnecting. I was able to boot up my computer and continue working and the charge continued but I had to initiate it first with the lid closed either in an off or sleep mode. Just wondering if this is the new norm as I just moved from the old "T" style magsafe to the new "L" style magsafe.

MacBook Pro :: Is There An Upgrade And Exchange Policy For New Models
