OS X :: Do Computer Specs Affect Online Usage?

Sep 14, 2010

I was just wondering if slow internet happens from a slow computer as well as bad connection. I have no idea what's going on with both my Safari and Chrome browsers because I have cable internet and its not slow by any means but my browsers keep crashing (had to force quit out of safari 6 times in 2 minutes) or i see the dreaded beachball for more than five minutes. I don't know what's going on.

Software :: Specs For A Computer Behind The TV?

Jan 26, 2009

We're dropping our Dishnetwork subscription this month in hopes of getting our content from both our AppleTV and also a MacMini, which we hope to purchase soon. I've been looking at a number of MacMini's on EBay and via CraigsList, but I wanted to know what you guys suggest as far as processor and memory for a Mini just to serve video to the TV. My goal is to watch videos from iTunes and Boxee primarily, but also from the web as need be. I'm looking at a number of 1.2Ghz systems with 512 Megs/Ram, and given this computer will only be used for video would this be suffice? I dont' know if we need the 'latest and greatest' or even a dual core system, even though I do want something with OSX 10.5 for sure.

Applications :: Does Boot Camp Affect The Performance Of The Computer

Jan 11, 2009

I installed XP onto Boot Camp, so I can run some Windows games on it. At first, it didn't seem like it was that bad but after loading Sims 2, 2 expansion packs and 1 stuff pack it was a little... different. Windows still starts up pretty quick and everything, but in OS X... the performance has been decreasing slowly. Doesn't the things only affect the things in the Windows partition instead of OS X? Safari's performance wasn't as smooth as it used to be.

OS X :: What Were The Standard Computer Specs From 2000-2009

Nov 7, 2009

standard specs for computers, like for both PC and Mac, like compare a laptop/desktop from 2000 (PC) to a Mac at that time, all the way to 2009, well most of the mac stuff would probably be easy but I want to see compare and contrast stuff sort of thing between the 2, since PC's are admittedly, if you have as much money to buy a mac, have really powerful specs compared to an iMac/Mac Pro, but almost every PC laptop pretty much sucks (except alienware, in terms of power and sexiness macbooks/pro win in every aspect, but are still more expensive).

IMac :: Is There A Way To Chip Off CPU Usage From Other Programs That The Computer May Be Using

May 20, 2009

I purchased my first Mac ever, the iMac with 3.06ghz, 8GB and 1T.


Now, I got this iMac to use Protools with plugins. Now I'm only using 3 tracks with virtual instruments and is already asking me to increase CPU usage or remove RTAS(virtual instruments).

Is there a way to chip off CPU usage from other programs that the computer may be using? Anyone has solution except removing some virtual instruments, I mean I got this iMac to work with music.

Aug 11, 2010

I was told if I bought a new laptop I would get my data transferred from old laptop to newly bought one for free from the one on one. When ordering online I see it costs $100 to add that service.

Mac Pro :: Does Overclocking Also Affect OSX

Mar 3, 2008

I downloaded Catalyst Control Center and the latest XP Pro drivers for the 2600XT from ATI's site. In XP I installed the new drivers and ran CCC's built-in overclocking utility which tests the card and makes recommendations for boosting the speeds. The program recommended increasing the clock/memory from 700/800 to 760/860.

OS X :: Changing Name Of HD Affect Upgrade To SL

Mar 7, 2009

Is it recommended to keep calling my Startup Disk "Macintosh HD" or is it ok to change it's name to only "Macintosh" ? Will the name change might do effect if I upgrade to snow leopard? The reason I want to remove "HD" is because I know it's an HardDrive and in bootcamp, i like to see Macintosh & Windows not Macintosh HD & Windows.

OS X :: If My Master Drive Is Failing Will It Affect The Slave As Well?

Apr 13, 2009

I've been having some problems lately and I assumed it may be related to my HD since it's been making a lot of creaking noises for a while. Its been freezing a lot and when I click on folders they won't open and the text underneath starts flashing. Yikes. I've never come across that one before so I started booting up off the slave drive. Well just now the same thing happened with the text flashing running off the slave. Could this somehow be related to the master drive failing or do I just have other bigger issues?

Software :: Changing Settings To Affect All Users

Nov 14, 2008

I am a Technology Specialist at a school district, and we have 16 macbook laptops and 4 macbook pro laptops. These laptops have 3 standalone accounts on them: Student, Teacher, and administrator. However, if you go to the login prompt with name and password, students and teachers can log into their Windows network accounts. When this happens, however, it gives them more freedom on the macs. Is there a way to set security settings for user accounts/user groups that haven't logged onto a computer yet?

Also, is there a way to set Connected Servers to show up on the desktop for all users? I go in as admin, and set it to show on desktop, but it only shows on the admin desktop, no one elses.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Can Force Shot Down Affect Some Applications

Mar 26, 2012

I have Seagate external drive. In the past few days a message  pops up "The disc was not ejected properly", in spite the icon is still on the desktop.

I restarted the finder and nothing showed up, empty desktop. I forced shot down, and I could not log in with my password, because the keyboard would not type. I shot down the computer holding the power button, and disconected the external drive. I could login, bot my outlook 2011 would not start and Adobe acrobat would crash. I rebuild the outlook, and restarted the computer. Went back to normal so far. 

Question, what caused all this mess,

a) is external Seagate drive duying (Disk utility said that the drive is OK)?

b) Did I catch a virus? 

Also every time I force shot down, I have to rebuilf identity for outlook 2011. Very disturbing. I never had these issues with Snow Leopard.

MacBook Pro :: Does Increasing RAM Affect Battery Performance

Mar 29, 2012

increasing the amount of RAM in a MacBook Pro (latest model unibody 15" i7 processor). If I increase the amount of RAM in this laptop from 4Gb to16 Gb, should that in and of itself result in a decrease in battery performance? This is assuming no increase in number of active programs, etc. A friend of mine was told by an Apple employee that just increasing the total RAM in a laptop would result in the battery draining more quickly. I am no computer genius, but that does not sound right to me? After all, why should the battery work harder if the excess RAM is not being used at the time.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Does Deleting Items On One Desktop Affect Others?

Jun 13, 2012

I have my desktop filled with folder, icons, etc. I want to create a 2nd desktop and delete all the crap. Will all my folders and icons still be in my original desktop if I create a new desktop and clean it up? I'd like a clean desktop while working on page layout or maybe have a folder of snippets and templates I use regularly in InDesign.

Hardware :: MacBook Battery Affect Airport Connectivity?

Mar 13, 2010

A month ago, I started to get kicked off my wireless network seemingly random. I have eight devices on the network, but only my MacBook Pro was affected. I use an Airport Extreme base station - the UFO-looking one from about 2006. This wasn't regular "can't find the network", greyed-out Airport icon kicked off - the icon became an outline and no matter what I tried, only a restart would get me back on (often to be kicked off again within minutes). Again, I have six devices on the network - my wife is in the same room, feet away, and her 2003 iBook stays on the network with no troubles. A week after I started having this problem, I noticed my battery was no longer holding a charge. I just bought a new one. My question: I didn't initially think there might be a connection between the two issues - dying battery and Airport connectivity - but now that I've had the new battery working for a day, I haven't been kicked off the network. Could the bad battery have caused the Airport to totally disconnect?
