  • Not only is there no need to separate system and data, but you can't actually do it since there's no clean break between the two. There is user data in the system side of things (main Library ...
  • SSD is standard in nearly every Mac Apple sells, which are MacBooks. It's also standard in all iPhones, iPads and iPod touches. Some users want capacity over speed, so there is a choice for the ...
  • The MacBook Air, Retina MacBook Pro and Mac Pro only have an internal SSD. The first two make up the bulk of the Macs Apple sells. That's called standard. Not easily you can't. It's a very involved ...
  • Sure. Bring a card or even a portable hard drive. Photoshop is almost certainly installed but you will need to install the Nikon software yourself. Bring any other apps or plug-ins you want to test. ...
  • It's a different process (plasma versus vapor deposition). It's similar in that it coats glass but that's really the extent of it. Do you see Apple bragging about multi-coated glass the way lens ...
  • Wrong. I'm an iOS developer and I can tell you that the number one reason for app crashes is not low memory. It's buggy code, mainly not handling all error conditions or user actions. Murphy's law, ...
  • Adapt means it's not exactly the same. The technique that Apple uses (plasma deposition) is not the same as what's used for camera lenses, vacuum deposition. Also keep in mind that camera lenses ...
  • Apple did not skimp on RAM. 1 gig is more than enough for the vast majority of users and is the current sweet spot. iOS apps use surprisingly very little memory. It's the same as the previous ...
  • The iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina both have a 64 bit A7 processor and an M7 motion coprocessor and all of the new products coming next month will have its successor, likely called an A8 (and ...
  • If 'A month is rather meaningless' (your words) then why are you arguing over it being two months shy of 2 years? The fact remains that it is still an October 2012 model and always will be an ...
  • They say 'we adapted a process used on smaller surfaces like camera lenses', which means it's similar to, not the same as. Not only that, but coatings are also very different and serve a very ...
  • Apple says October 2012, and it will be October in just 2 months. If you are going to argue about 2 months, then you're really digging. Manufacture date does not matter. The design is what matters, ...
  • That's actually a 2 year old model, released in October, 2012. However, it's fine. Also consider Apple's refurb section, and it doesn't have the mail-in rebate hassles. As with any refurb section, ...
  • Apple's repair extensions provide for a refund for any repair costs incurred by the user even after they've paid for it, but fortunately you didn't need to deal with that. Awesome. That's cool. Goo ...
  • The Retina MacBook Pro (which is not what is in your subject) was just updated. Here's a very good way to keep track of product cycles: http://buyersguide.macrumors.com/
  • I completely forgot about that and it's probably why your MacBook failed. As for PeachMac, why continue with them? They've already demonstrated their incompetence more than once. Do you really want ...
  • It won't be anywhere close to $900. Apple's flat rate repair is around $300 for laptops. You can buy a new MacBook Air for $900. Calmly explain what happened and without any chip on your shoulder. ...
  • If the SSD failed, there's nothing to recover outside of very expensive recovery services. However, $859 for any repair is ridiculous. Not really. Their repair fee for a MacBook Air logic board is ...
  • She probably has to retrieve the MacBook from PeachMac before she can go to the Apple Store with it. Calling may or may not be productive. They will no doubt say to make an appointment and bring it ...
  • You're dealing with a third party store, not Apple. Take it to an Apple Store. First of all, Apple has a flat rate repair fee which is about $300 where they fix everything that's wrong with it, not ...
