Dead group! For starters, what kind of Macs do you guys have?
Me: Mac OS X 10.4.10 MacBook Pro, feels like I've had mine for maybe 2 years?
I'm running Mac OS X 10.5.3 on a Macbook Pro, as well. This one's a newer one but it feels about the same as my previous one (which is a year old and was taken by a family member). Difference is that the processor runs cooler and the GPU runs hotter.
this is not a spam just a ? how do you get a pic
Add a picture to the group? In your profile create a new album and upload pictures to it, then click on "add pictures" in this group (it's at the upper right corner of the images area) and you should be able to add them that way.
If you mean how to you make a profile picture, go to your "User CP" (just below the AnimeSuki banner, you can access it on any page) and then choose to "Edit Avatar." You'll be able to choose from pre-made avatars or upload your own custom one. The file size and dimension limits are listed there and is 100x100 pixels and 50 kb max.
It would seem that a Mac-based trojan is circulating the net. While there isn't a need to go out and buy a virus scanner, avoid opening strange files.
Hey everyone! New to group. I have a Mac Pro, with all the trimmings 30" and 20" inch Cinema Displays! I normally hang out in the Code Geass forums and stalk all non Kallen fans
So...that means you didn't stalk me.
Finally upgraded my mac to leopard, and it's got its up and downsides. Although I must say I'm irritated to discover that I have insufficient ram to play Spore on my laptop
Leopard is way better than Tiger, in my opinion. Tiger was nice, but in terms of functionality it wasn't much better than Windows XP. Leopard's Stacks feature is terrific (I created my own for a folder with aliases for programs that I use frequently - it's like having a more efficient "Start Menu") and Quicklook is an amazingly useful feature. The other graphical enhancements are nice, as well, like the fake transparency on the menu bar. (Yes, it's fake - I once had an icon get moved so that it was partially covered by the menu bar, and the bar didn't show it at all. That was a somewhat saddening revelation, but it's still pretty.) Time Machine is also quite useful; I've already made heavy use of it when I moved from one Mac to another.
I'll be honest - even though I am not a Mac fanboy, I was excited about the release of Leopard. I actually waited in line with a friend at my university's bookstore on the Leopard launch day for about an hour before Leopard was to officially go on sale. There was an Apple representative there who handed out soda and some high-quality cookies - it was a nice launch. Actually, a big part of the reason I was big about getting there early was because the first 100 or so copies of Leopard would be sold for extremely cheap ($65 I believe it was), whereas all copies after that would revert to the regular educational price ($90 or $99, I think). I had planned to wait until 10.5.1 before installing Leopard, but after a few days the shiny box got to me and I did the installation.
Here's a strange question for someone to ponder:
My macbook pro has a hard time staying connected to the wireless internet every time I visit my boyfriend's house. This only happens when I'm not plugged into some power outlet. I'll keep reconnecting, but I lose internet after only a few minutes. If I'm plugged in, I have no problem.
I also do not have this problem at my university. I can walk around with my mac and still use the wireless no problem. Why do I only have this problem at this particular house?
I'll take a guess and say that it's due to signal interference. I would imagine that when you aren't plugged in the Airport card goes into a lower-power mode, meaning that your connection becomes more sensitive to things like distance and signal noise.
If there are a lot of wireless networks around your boyfriend's house, then he should make sure that his wireless network is using a channel that is either not used by the networks around him or, if that isn't possible, that the channel is shared with a network what has a weak signal. Most people just set up their router and never change the channel from its default (channel 6; in America we can use 11 channels, I believe elsewhere they can use 13). Some routers are fancy and will scan the networks in the area and choose their own channel, but I don't think that's standard yet.
Operating microwaves can also cause loss of signal, but that probably isn't the issue here.
Lastly, it could be his router. It could be the router itself (not all routers are created equal) or it could be an incompatibility between the router and your computer, which you can't really do anything about unless he's willing to try and adjust network settings. Since it probably isn't a serious issue I'll leave it at that.
Thanks for the reply ledgem, I'll look into it keeping all your thoughts on mind and hopefully figure it out!
wow...i diden't know this many people(like me) had a imac.
I own 2 Macbook Pros, one Late 2006 model and a Unibody model and several old Macs (iMac G3, PowerMac G3 B&W, Power Mac 6200, Performa 630). I originally used Macs in 1994 as my first computer, but switched to PCs because most schools used Windows... but in late 2006, I switched back because I got fed up with poor build quality with PCs, mostly Dells in general when I have computer parts break after 1 year of owning it.
The main reason I own a Macbook Pro is that I still play computer games and require a powerful graphics card... and the latest Macbook Pro seems to do pretty good with gaming in Windows Vista, even after overclocking (which doesn't overheat because it's new cooling system in the latest models). I'm no Apple Fanboy because there are flaws in Mac OS X and I don't worship Apple, although I like some of Apple's products but, believe it or not and I still use a anti-virus and firewall to make sure I'm secure..
Bought a Mac Mini G4 1.33 GHz to replace the loud and crappy Intel Atom hackintosh which I would be using as a web server since the fans are quieter and uses around the same energy as the Atom would. Now I can perform system updates without a problem. I was able to find this model cheaper on ebay than what other retailers were selling at. ($255 vs $339).
I have a macbook air running on snow kitty + dual booting hackintosh on my pc
@Irkalla what are the specs on your MBA? Have you tried running any processor intensive apps such as the Adobe apps on it? How is the performance?
One iMac running 10.6 Snow Leopard. I bought this in 2010 and used it ever since
