Hardware :: Apple ACD Compared To An Ultrasharp Dell?

Feb 14, 2009

I LOVE the look of the ACD but does it have enough positives over the Ultrasharp? From what I remember from a couple years ago, the Dell's and ACD's were the same quality but the Dell's were hundreds of dollars cheaper. Is this still the case?

Hardware :: Dell G2410 Versus Ultrasharp 2408WFP

Jul 28, 2009

Is there really any big differences between these other than the number of inputs? Does anyone have an experience with these monitors, if so I would love to hear your input.

MacBook Pro :: Correctly Hook Up My MBP To A Dell Ultrasharp 24"?

Jul 3, 2010

I just got a 15" MBP and would like to hook it up to a 24" Dell Ultrasharp I inherited. However, I know nothing about the button settings on the monitor.

When I connect the two, the MBP background shows up on the Dell monitor but the icons that run along the bottom of the MBP screen are cut off. I'm assuming I need to change the monitor settings but don't know what I'm doing.

Applications :: IWork 09 Compared To Microsoft Office Compared To AbiWord

Mar 11, 2009

I'm getting my first Mac tomorrow, an iMac 24" 2.8. After 20 years on PCs, I'm fed up with Windows. I've been fairly methodical in going over the PC, inch by inch and file by file, to make sure everything I need is brought over and can be used on the iMac. One of the biggest problems is 15 years of documents which were prepared in WordPerfect. I understand that neither iWork or MS Office can convert them. I also heard of AbiWord, a freeware program which can view and convert almost anything. So, I have a few choices. Since I'm going through each doc to see if I even need it or want it, I can convert each one in WordPerfect after I make the decision, to an MS Doc file (MS WORD 2003, RTF, ANSI, ASCII, or other files. If I do that, will iWork be able to read the file? What would be the best format to convert it too?

Or, I can decide what to keep and bring it over in WordPerfect format. When and if I need it, I can use AbiWord to convert at that time. Of course, this means adding an application to my computer. Does iWork/Pages emulate MS Word in the ability to read and convert other formats? What is the native format for saving in iWork? Is it a .DOC file? Any suggestions for the best method for me to transfer the files to the new computer and eventually use them? Does any program Batch process the conversions? BTW: I already purchased iWork, because of my belief that its 100% compatible with MS Office, and because it appears that any type of document I want to produce can be accomplished in iWork.

Hardware :: Dell 2407WFP A04 Versus Dell G2410 Versus Dell 2209WA Versus Samsung F2380

Nov 2, 2009

I'm looking for a new monitor to go with my MBP, and I'm stuck trying to choose between the ones listed above.

The 2407WFP is a couple of years old now I guess, but it's the rev A04 version, which supposedly fixed the (few) problems with what was otherwise meant to be a great screen. It's an sPVA screen.

I've heard good reviews of the G2410, with its LED backlighting. It's still a TN panel and I hear so much bad stuff about them.

The 2209WA is an eIPS panel which I like the sound of, but it's smaller and lower resolution.

The F2380 is a cPVA panel, the image quality looks better but I've heard bad things about blacks on this panel.

Hardware :: Get A New Dell Monitor Or A Used Apple Display?

Aug 25, 2007

I am in the market for a new display. I was thinking about getting a new dell one, but then again I love the looks of the Apple studio and cinema displays. Do you think it would be a mistake to buy a used Apple display, so long as it is in good condition? I have about $150-200 to spend

Hardware :: Preferably Dell Monitor That's As Good As Apple Cinema Display?

Dec 14, 2009

I'm deciding to buy myself a new mac pro coming around Jan-Feb and since mac pro's cost sooo much I'm cutting money on every corner; from buying only on amazon to using magazine coupons. The biggest money waster in my opinion is the 22' Led Cinema display apple sells. It costs around 900$ to buy an apple display which hasn't been updated for 3+ years when new Dell monitors of the same size (with camera installed and quality optional speakers) cost roughly about 400 max? I know apple displays are premium but extra 500 bucks is ridiculous.

Hardware :: Torn Between The DELL U2711 - NEC PA271W And Future Apple Cinema Display 27"?

Jul 27, 2010

I have a PC with a Radeon card with a Display Port and I'm really interested in getting a 27" 2650x1440 display for mostly PC use and a little console gaming. I want to make sure whatever display I buy can be hooked up to a 360 or PS3. I know the DELL has a built in scaler and the Apple iMac 27" supports the 360 and PS3 at 720p with the Kanex XD adapter (I imagine the future ACD will work with Kanex too). Between the two I'm torn between DELLs over aggressive and "sparkly" AG coating, and Apple's insanely reflective glossy surface.

However, what's the deal with the NEC PA271W? I've seen a few solid professional reviews but I haven't read any hands on user comments on this display. Considering its the most expensive of the 3, is it worth the money? Does anyone know if it has a built in scaler? Does it work with a Playstation 3 and 360? Is it glossy or matte, and if its matte does it "sparkle"? My current wide screen monitor is dying and I've gotta make a decision on one of the above three by Fall

PowerPC :: Screen Compared To CRT?

Jan 6, 2007

I work on an emac and I really like the display for the sort of work I do which is hack work making leaflets and pamphlets that get digitally printed or offset. The colour is accurate and the screen is not tiring. Generally I've been a bit wary of lcd. But I'm seriously thinking of replacing my 1.42Ghz emac with a late model 17" powerbook with a 128mb 9700 card. I'm wondering how this screen will compare with the emac. I'm not up to speed on the various types of lcds. I know for example that the early imac displays will be inferior to studio monitors. I'm expecting that the lcd's used on the late model powerbooks to be top range as it was a pro machine. In the end I don't know if it would favorably compare with an emac crt. The second question is, is it OK to use a powerbook all day as a desk machine, I'd use a big wacom and separate keyboard obviously. Would this sort of use be too much for a laptop? Am I likely to run into problems with overheating or other damage?

PowerPC :: Mac Mini Compared To IMac G4

I have a g4 iMac that is about 5 years old. I am looking at getting a mac mini as a replacement. My question is: how much performance boost will I see. I do like to occasionally play games but it is really secondary to Internet, email and music. It would be nice to play star craft 2 I guess but again, not necessary.

MacBook Air :: Liking Old Computer Compared To New MBP?

Nov 15, 2009

So, some people at our office got issued 15" MBPs the last month or so, and I was one of the lucky ones to qualify. As background, I have been using a Rev A MBA for the last 20 months. I can tell you one thing. I hate lugging that MBP so much I actually leave it at the office most of the time. I remember when the MBA first came out people were saying 2.5 pounds extra would not make much difference so just go with the equally priced MBP, but no...it does make a big difference � not just mobility wise, but in over all convenience and ease of use. Now that i have all those ports I don't know what to do with them because I have already trimmed my dependence wired peripherals. I don't know what to do with the built in Optical Drive, too. Frankly, I don't know what to do with the thing, except leave it on my desk drawer at night.

Intel Mac :: Compared To The New Probook Is Quite Slow?

Mar 27, 2012

I have attached my computer details below. Compared to the new probook my imac is quite slow. I do professional photography and I have two issues. One is probably ISP related. Uplloading a folder of high res. jpegs from the D7000 takes for ever. Am I right in presuming this to be an ISP problem? Is there a solution? The other issue is the slow response when using A3 - even a 100% zoom takes several second to focus.

Is this a processor speed issue? If so, can I increase the speed?

MacBook Air :: 11.6" Compared To 2006 IMac

Oct 20, 2010

I'm trying to make an educated guess regarding the usage experience of the base 11.6" Air by using my 2006 17" iMac for reference. Basically, it boils down to processor generation and speed, which I need help understanding.

iMac = Intel Core Duo T2400 "Yonah" 1.83GHz
11.6" Air = Intel Core 2 Duo 1.4GHz

Other specs I believe are either same or better in the Air:
2mb L2 cache, 667 MHz bus, 2gb RAM

3mb L2 cache, 800 MHz bus, 2gb RAM

how these two computers compare in terms of usage? My current iMac runs Photoshop CS5 tolerably fast and plays 1080p video just fine.

I know there is allot of negative remarks, about the new imac's. gfx card, glossy screen, and now there is some negative posts about the 20'' models using a low quality "tn" type lcd screen. which is lower quality than what was used in the last imac model line. Does any body know what was used in the last line of imac g4's late 2004. will this screen be comparable or worse than my g4?

IMac :: Performance Of The Quads Compared To C2Ds

Nov 25, 2009

I know this have been discussed like many times but I've still some queries. Currently I'm using a Early 08 iMac with a 2.8GHz processor with 8800GS graphics for stuff like handbrake, aperture, CS3 & some Final cut express. I'm experiencing some lag in aperture when working with raw from my 500D (ard 2 - 3secs). My parents are also looking for a new computer as their 7 year old Celeron has just called it a day. They're looking to take over my current iMac. Hence looking at the new iMacs which I ordered earlier this week an i7 (not even shipped yet).

Just like to ask if the i7 will be substantially faster for my day to day usages or it it just ok get the base 27" with an upgraded graphics processor? BTW, how much faster is 4850 compared to my 8800GS?

MacBook Pro :: IPad 2 Screen Size Compared To  MD10LLA?

Jun 18, 2012

I'm more than likely going to get a MacBook: MD10LLA ?  It has a 13" screen size. Mi have an IPad 2 that has a 9.5" screen.  First off, are both measured corner of screen to corner of screen and does the MacBook have that black border surrounding the screen like the iPad 2 does?  I'm tired of Windows, pc computers constantly slowing down every year (even though I have anti virus, anti spyware, and defrag my hard drive every few months).  I can't afford a 15" MacBook,pro,like I'd like so I'm stuck with a 13".  Is that too small?  How would you compare it to an iPad screen?  I'm happy using my iPad for Internet browsing,emails, and apps, but don't think I would like a screen this small for intensive projects like typing long papers or things of that nature.  I initially got an iPad bevause I thought it be cheaper for college but I found I need certain programs that you can't get for the iPad in some of y classes.  I hope the 13" screen isn't too small.

MacBook Pro :: Keyboard Backlight Brighter On Left Side Compared To Right

When I look at my keyboard any key on the left side of the 5, T, G and B keys are brighter than those on the left. It is more evident when I have my moshi clearguard on.
