  • Oh no it's not!
  • I would check for updated printer drivers, and check whether the printer/paper profiles are in the right location, which may well have changed since SL.
  • I have 2.6GHz late 2013 15" MBP (top of the range at the time). Using much the same mix of programs as you, I have never maxed out the cpu. I doubt you would ever notice the difference.
  • It's old school. Comes from Usenet originally, I think. the -- is a convention to say that all that follows is signature and can (should) be omitted from replies/quoting. Time was, an email ...
  • That depends. Only a little for a single drive, but there will be a difference with the right sort of RAID system or if you have multiple drives attached.
  • The Airport extreme doesn't have an internal drive, so I presume you have an Airport TimeCapsule. For what? The Airport USB interface is only USB2. If you have no other drives, I would use the ...
  • What do you mean by 'sluggish'? What sort of performance are you getting? 'locking up' may be that the disk has spun down. Do you have your mini set to power down disks when idle? Which protocol(s) ...
  • You've pretty much got it: keep your Lightroom catalogue on you internal drive on the MacBook and keep the photos on the external drive. Import directly to the external drive and build smart ...
  • Tomshardware is a site that has been running for many years and had a good reputation as an unbiased source of reviews, analysis and comparisons. I say 'had', because I haven't followed it for at ...
  • I can help with one datum. On a current model MBP with flash storage, moving 5.8GB of files to a 2.5" disk over USB3 took 66 seconds, which in round numbers, allowing for some control data, will ...
  • You also need to specify whether that's with 2.5" USB-powered drives or 3.5" drives with external power. Don't know what you expect to learn though. USB to USB will be slower than internal to USB.
  • A steady hand (and mouse). Really. If you click left of centre on the slider, it goes a bit negative, right of centre a bit positive. You have to hit dead centre. Not good UI design. An alternative ...
  • In the UK, if you spec the storage (increase to 512GB) and processor (increase to 2.5GHz) for the Iris-only model the same as for the model with Nvidia graphics, the price difference is only £90. ...
  • I think the statement that the iMac is 'a lot' faster is untrue. faster, yes, if you have the 3.5GHz i7 as opposed to the 2.8GHz i7 on the MacBook, but in practice you won't be stressing the cpu ...
  • I didn't know you could do that, thanks for the tip. I don't see that option though - where exactly is it?
  • You set it up as a normal email account, using pop.gmail.com as the pop server. You may have to set something in Gmail too, to enable pop access; I can't remember
  • They're probably waiting for someone to help them solve the various engineering problems - power consumption, heat dissipation, physical space availability. Perhaps you should give them a few hints.
  • For me, the 8GB RAM would be the main reason not to go with the second-hand machine. That screenshot wouldn't show a dedicated graphics card even if fitted, you'd need to look further into the ...
  • You might do better to ask in the Android Talk forum
  • Have you tried these ? I'd also try removing the app (and download), downloading again and reinstalling. Since it could be a permissions problem, try verifying permissions on your disk.
