MacBook :: Will Snow Leopard Increase Memory Capacity On The Unibody MacBooks?

Mar 6, 2009

We all know that you could never have enough memory in our computers, so I have a fairly simple question to ask. When OS 10.6.0 comes out a.k.a. Snow Leopard, will all the Intel Core 2 Duo machines have an increased ram capacity. It looks more and more everyday as if 4GB is becoming a standard in machines and all across the board (Dell,Hp,Apple) computer these days are handling 8GB of ram with ease. So does anybody know if when Snow Leopard comes out, will there be a potential for my MacBook to contain 8GB of ram.

MacBook Pro :: Need To Increase My HDD Capacity?

Dec 5, 2010

I need to increase my HDD capacity. What is the best option?

Can I install a second internal HDD or will I need to replace my current drive?

I bought my MBP second hand so do not have any of the installation disks - is this going to be a problem? I do have an 1TB external HDD which I use for backing up.

OS X :: Virtual Memory Usage On Leopard - How To Increase It

Nov 22, 2008

I have a unibody Macbook 2.4 with 4GB RAM, running the latest version of Leopard (10.5.5). In activity monitor, I see each process has uses virtual memory of over half a gig, with a total VM size of over 40GB. Is this normal? Is all this virtual memory eating space on my hard disk? Why does each process require so much virtual memory? Is all the software on my Macbook, bloatware?

The attachments show what I am saying. Do others also have similar VM statistics?how to increase memory size

MacBook Pro :: Can Battery Capacity Increase From What It Was?

Sep 22, 2010

I used an app on my MBP called Coconut battery. it said that my current battery capacity was 94% of what it was since I bought it. I assumed that means those 6% are never coming back and I should start using it more responsibly to make it last longer. I read a lot of forums on how to use your notebook effectively, when to plug it in, how much I should let it discharge etc. After 2 weeks of my new habits, I checked my battery life again and now it says 96%. Is it even possible for it to go back up?

MacBook :: Solution To Increase Battery Capacity?

Jul 18, 2009

As in thread, I noticed in CoconutBattery and in iStatNano widget that my battery is losing capacity, yesterday I had 96% now I see 94%, I've got my MacBook since May and it has 59 cycles yet.

I think that it shouldn't lose capacity now, ok, later but now is to fast, do you think so? Is there any solution to increase this capacity? I've got MB Unibody 2GHz, Late 2008, but I bought it in May 2009 "as new"..

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Make And Distribute And Image To Multiple Macbooks?

May 29, 2012

I am looking for a nice tidy option to create an image of a "master" client and distribute to a group of student Macbooks.  All the Macbooks are the same model and are all running Snow Leopard (though they were released with Leopard).  Initially, one of the teachers created a user account (called student) with all the software and settings that we needed,  on one of them and used Migration Assistant to copy that account to the others. 

I prefer to have a master image I can restore to at any time. I figure that Disk Utility will do the job - I'm just not 100% sure of which steps to take. So far I have created my "master" macbook that is set up just the way I want it. Next I was going to attach it to the mac I use to run everything on (ARD etc) via firewire and boot the master in Target mode. Then I would run Disk Utility on my mac and use the New Image button to create an image called "studentPOD.dmg"  (There is room on my mac for this, or I can put it on an external USB disk) Is this correct, and once I have the image, how do I get it onto the other Macbooks?  Is there anything special I have to do to make it bootable?  They all part of a student POD and can be re-imaged at anytime without worrying about losing I can afford to experiment...

Hardware :: High Quality Photo Comparison - New Unibody MacBooks

Oct 16, 2008

While Apple didn't make mention of it at the time, the MacBook Air silently debuted the start of a new unibody MacBook line. The new 15" MacBook Pro and its 13" MacBook sibling have managed to carry out the same lines and execution, harmonizing the plastic MacBook and the now half decade old Aluminum Powerbook design carried forward by the MacBook Pro. Here's how the two models compare. See also:

High-quality unboxing photos: late 2008 13" MacBook
High-quality unboxing photos: late 2008 15" MacBook Pro

The first hint that the new MacBooks are riding the same jet stream of the Air is the slim thin boxes each ships in. Compared to the MacBook Pro boxes from just a year or two ago (below), the new MacBook and MacBook Pro come in implausibly small white boxes. Somewhat ironically, Final Cut Studio ships in a significantly larger box than the new notebooks. The middle box is the 15" MacBook Pro, while the box in front is the 13" MacBook. The new MacBooks claim a small box profile by following the packaging rules originally laid down by the iPhone: a thin plastic bed holds the notebook snug against a thin foam pad attached to the box lid (below). This removes the need for large styrofoam inserts, in addition to providing a clean and more luxurious unboxing experience. The side benefit is that there's much less waste, the carbon footprint of shipping the boxes is smaller, it's cheaper to ship, and it's easier for customers to save their box for reuse later..............

MacBook Pro :: Unibody Mbp Support 8 Or More Gigs Of Ram After Snow Leopard?

Right now it says 4 gigs is max, and there are reports that it actually supports 6 gigs. But I know that with a 64 bit OS, ram additions are unlimited. So will this 4/6GB limit be lifted once I install Snow Leopard?

IMac :: Replacement HD - Performance Increase With Extra Capacity?

Apr 21, 2010

I'm considering replacing the 640 gb Hitachi HDT721064SLA360 in my 24" iMac with a Samsung Spinpoint F3EG HD203WI 2TB drive. I'm just wondering if anyone can tell me whether I will see any performance increases along with the extra capacity. The Hitachi is a 7200rpm drive, while the Sammy is 5400rpm, but the Hitachi has only a 16mb buffer and the Sammy sports a 32mb. Would the Samsung be faster than the Hitachi or would it suffer because of the lower rotational speed?

Software :: Snow Leopard Calculating Drive Capacity In Base 10?

Sep 19, 2009

Something I've noticed lately with Snow Leopard which I had not heard anything about but have been noticing with installing Snow Leopard or using disk utility with Snow Leopard systems. Just a nice little bonus I wasn't originally aware of that 10.6 is seeing drive capacities in decimal now to match the drive manufacturers specs as opposed to calculating in binary like they and Windows had been forever. Did a little digging and found a knowledge base article in regards to the change.

OS X :: How To Increase Swap Space In Snow Leopard

Apr 13, 2010

I'm running a 64 bit Matlab simulation on an enormous dataset and OS X (not Matlab) is telling me I'm running out of space on my startup disk for "application memory". I've got 300GB of free space on the hard drive, and only 60GB used as swap. I think the limit I'm hitting is the 64th swap file.

OS X :: Incredible Speed And Free Space Increase With Snow Leopard

Aug 31, 2009

Strange as it may seem, when I installed Snow Leopard, I immediately freed almost 40 gig on my Macbook pro (can't imagine why) and speed was increased by a factor of 2-3 times. One more thing is that parallels is now "almost" as fast as a native program, especially with Quicken for windows, which is the only reason that I use parallels.
