Yeah, but 1080 x 2 = 2160 is what I meant.
Grams explained it a bit better.
aha, didn't see that
Thinking of buying one of the big iPads (pro) for watching stuffs whilst cooking etc
Are they going to update soon or am I ok to buy without fear of it immediately being updated?
Need to replace my decrepit (nearly 10 year old) unibody macbook. I've never kept up to date with the changing specs of mac's when I've had them but it seems like everything uses SSD instead of HDD and thats meant that for the price, I'd be getting less space. My current unibody has a 250gb HDD but I remember that a decent chunk of this was taken up by the OS. Since the switch to SSD, are they more efficient with the way they use space?
Also has anybody got any pointers on where there sweet spot is for macbooks now? I just need something to use for Adobe CS and general graphics stuff.
As you can tell by my line of questioning, I know not a lot when it comes to computers.
Anyone know of any good Mac virus protection software worth using. I have picked up the annoying Bing auto direct virus that i want to get rid of.
If you're managing at the moment using Adobe CS, and everything else is okay, you might want to try to upgrad the HD to an SSD and maxed out the RAM?
Hope that helps.
I would recommend an iCloud subscription to help free up space... it off loads files to the cloud but keeps aliases on your machine which let you re download anytime they are needed.
If you're interested I'm thinking of selling my 2017 13inch, BTO, 16gb, i5 upgrade, 512GB SSD...
Next iPad Pro update is rumoured to be in March 2020.
Is that possible on something as old as my mac?
As it stands now, it's slow to start up and struggles with multiple windows being open if they are acccessing big files. I had the battery replaced at apple a few years ago as that did the bulging trick, and in the last little bit, battery life has been getting worse again. Not sure if spending more money on it is the answer or whether to cut my losses and start afresh. I can't really complain as it's lasted way longer than the equivilent PC would have done at the time.
Thanks for the tips @chrisbmx116 Your macbook sounds like something that would be suitable but I'm in Canada so location along with the exchange rate might be against us!
I upgraded my 2009 MacBook Pro and it gave the laptop a new lease of life. I bought everything from Crucial and it didn't take long to fit everything at all. There's lot of instructions like these. The Crucial HD came with the tools which I bought separately (not knowing it came with them) and didn't use.
It really depends on how much you want to spend and how much you use it? For me, the price was more than worthwhile, as it's now really useable and nippy.
Tomorrow?! Would be surprised if Bloomberg would run something without a solid source.
Thanks....it did help
Bloomberg of "the big hack" fame?
But he got a promotion so it must be true.
Saw that. "cybersecurity czar" huh
Mark Grumman is at Bloomberg now and he has solid sources within Apple.
Isn't him that the guy writing daring fireball has some kind of beef with?
You're not a czar, too? Peasant.
Legit excited by 8GB 5500m for just 90 quid more than the 4GB version. See also 64GB ram.
Slightly confused by 8TB internal SSD. Who is that for exactly?
anyone doing video?
