Mac Pro :: Processor Died - Replace Logic Board?

Feb 24, 2009

I have a first gen Mac Pro - late 2006 I think - and one of the processors died, making it one hell of a paper weight. The authorized Mac tech has told me he has to order the entire logic board with processors b/c you can't just replace the processors. Googling tells me otherwise.

Basically it's $700 for the parts - is this the route I have to go? Is that a good price? Can I upgrade processors at this point?

MacBook Air :: Why No I3 Processor In System

Nov 6, 2010

Why do you think Apple did not use the I3 processor in the new Air? Cost? I think it uses less power and is faster the much older Core 2 duo. I have not been able to find any information on it.

MacBook Pro :: Slower Processor - More Ram?

Dec 12, 2010

I'm in the market for a new MBP and, looking through the models, it's between the: 13" 2.4 GHz Core 2 Duo with 8gb of RAM 13" 2.66 GHz Core 2 Duo with 4gb of RAM I'll be using it for: Adobe apps (Flash, Photoshop, Dreamweaver, InDesign; often 2 of these at a time), videos (esp. streamed online), word processing, and general web browsing. I often have at least 1 of the mentioned Adobe applications, as well as a streaming video and 5-10 browser tabs open at once. So, which is better for my purposes, the 4gb more RAM but slower processor, or the faster processor with 4gb less RAM?

I was reading through some of these discussions a while ago and came across a command that will cause the processor to become extremely active and use up the full 100% of its power.

I would like to ask for this command so that I am able to test the full performance of my system.

MacBook Pro :: Would It Be Possible To Take The Intel Processor Out Of My System

MacBook Pro :: Processor Or SSD Jump - Performance?

Feb 26, 2010

I am ordering a Macbook Pro. I am waiting until March 16th and if no refresh I will order. Here is my 1 and only question. I have read all over so please stay on topic and done go on about wait for i7. I have been hehe but due to use it is pointless to me but I want the best as I am only out of pocket $200-$400 for this order. I want to know if it makes more sense to bump from 2.8Ghz to 3.06Ghz and get a 320GB 7200rmp HDD or stay down at the 2.8Ghz and get the 128GB SSD. I only use 40GB of space now so that is not an issue.

MacBook Pro :: Looking For Current Graphics/processor?

Apr 13, 2010

If the 13" isn't updated I may get the current version...but was after some advice about the graphics card/processor (I realise I'm probably using the wrong term).

I'd read that users have to log off to switch the graphics option when using the mbp for heavier work.

Can anyone provide an idiot's guide on what this actually means? How often it has to be done, for what tasks (video editing etc) and how long the switch physically takes?

MacBook Pro :: I7 Processor Will Not Power Up After Battery Ran Out

May 21, 2012

The 2011 macbook pro with i7 processor will not power up or charge at all. The problem started after my battery ran out and the computer shut down. Since then, when I plug in the charger only the green light turns on. In addition the light on the base (in front of the keyboard) flashes. Nothing happens when I hit the power button. The charger still works on other laptops. To emphasize, the screen will not even light up. It sounds as if the computer is starting (for less than a second) before stopping, only to start again but that is purely speculative.

MacBook :: 32-64 Bit Processor - Upgrade To Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite

Dec 3, 2014

I have a MacBook1,1 running Mac OS X 10.6.8 Snow Leopard. I would like to upgrade to Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite. The Mac App Store says that a 64 bit processor is required. since my MacBook has a 32 bit Intel Core Duo, I would like to replace it with a 64 bit Intel Core 2 Duo processor. Is this possible, if so, what are the risks and should I bring it into an Apple store to get it fixed.

MacBook Pro :: 13" Processor Options Dwindled?

Oct 29, 2010

Wirelessly posted (Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; U; CPU iPhone OS 4_1 like Mac OS X; en-us) AppleWebKit/532.9 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/4.0.5 Mobile/8B117 Safari/6531.22.7)

Is it just me or did their used to be 2 processor options for the 13" mbp and now there is only one (2.66ghz). I thought there used to be a 2.4 maybe?

What could this mean and or be the reasoning? Maybe I'm just crazy and misinformed. If so, feel free to tell me I'm an idiot.

MacBook Air :: Processor Speeds Specifically Using Finale And GPO?

Jan 10, 2011

I am looking to buy my first mac in the coming months. I have found that the Air is quite appealing, with perhaps one flaw. The most extreme program I will be running will be Finale 2011. It comes with a sampling of Garritan Personal Orchestra. GPO's site lists the minimum requirement for the processor to be 1.8 GHz. Does this mean that the app will always need the full 1.8 in order to run well? I assume that it wouldn't. If anyone has any personal experience with this app, it would be great to know how it typically runs. The 13 inch Air comes with 1.86 Ghz. So, if I have email, internet, and basic things like that running in the background, will that Macbook Air run successfully?

MacBook Air :: Processor Power, Features To Upgrade MBA?

Oct 15, 2008

I am perfectly happy with my MBA, but I must admit that I like to always have the "latest and greatest". The new MacBooks look great, although I haven't seen one "live" or had the opportunity to get hands on with one yet. If I buy a new MacBook, I give up the form factor, but gain the processor power, features, etc. Also, it will really feel like a new computer because of the different appearance. Since I like the MBA form factor, I was thinking of just upgrading to that. The problem is that it won't even feel like I got a new laptop, because visually it would be identical to the one I have now. In fact, the reduced battery life may not offset the benefit of larger HD and improved graphics. Dying for a new laptop though... what are you other MBA owners thinking?

MacBook :: Start Becoming Unstable With Amount Of Ram And Processor?

Jul 29, 2009

Okay, I think this is the right thread to discuss this in, if it's not I apologize. So I got a 13" unibody MacBook back in February. I've got a 2 ghz Intel Core 2 Duo, and 2 gb 1067 MHz DDR3. I'm starting to run out of hard drive space, plus I want to dual-boot Windows 7 when it comes out, unfortunately we still live in a PC dominated world.

My questions are, if I replace it myself this will void my warranty won't it? I didn't buy any sort of AppleCare with my MacBook so I just have whatever the standard warranty is.

Second, is there a limit to the size of hard drive I can put in there? Does it have to be made by a certain manufacturer? And at any size does it start becoming unstable with my amount of ram and processor?
