  • Wish I had read this sooner.  I signed up for a year as part of their Cyber sale which includes the NIK software collection.  I suppose maybe I shouldn't complain given that they basically threw ...
  • After some initial confusion, I like it.  But I'm not sure if it really the best tool for me or what the best organizational structure is for me. I am a casual photographer.  I like the simplicity ...
  • Replied in Hackintosh
    This is the big issue for me.  There are things one pays for in a Mac that I am not necessarily concerned about (I am fine with USB 3.0 rather than thunderbolt, for example) and there are other ...
  • Thanks.  After thinking about this a bit more and reviewing your response and those of the others who kindly responded, I am thinking it probably makes little sense at for me spend the money on ...
  • I have an A6000 and Nex 6.  Someone I know is selling his D7000 and I was wondering if there would be any benefit to my purchasing it.  I've never owned a DSLR and the thought would be that I ...
  • Replied in Hackintosh
    In fairness, perhaps I just had bad luck, but we aren't talking about 5 years. I purchased the computer as a refurb from Apple (i.e., should have been in new condition) 4 years ago and the problem ...
  • Replied in Hackintosh
    The problem is some minor vertical lines (not colored) that show up on part of the scree and are only noticeable with certain backgrounds.  Apple replaced the video sync cables and it didn't help ...
  • Replied in Hackintosh
    Actually, if it were just Thunderbolt and surround sound, I could live with that.  I am happy to use USB 3 and I only use stereo for listening and recording.  Messages, well I can get those on my ...
  • Replied in Hackintosh
    Thanks to everyone for the feedback. Some things to consider. The truth is that while I like the idea of a project and learning things along the way, with regard to long term use, I would much ...
  • Created discussions Hackintosh
    Has anyone put one of these together and have any thoughts as to whether it is worth the effort?  I have never built a computer from scratch before so this would be a big learning experience for me. ...
  • Replied in Update
    I took my computer to the Apple store today. They are going to swap out the video cables and see if that fixes the issue. If not, the next step would be to replace the screen. Cost $550. That's a ...
  • No, nothing like that.  She pretty much only uses the computer for email, web surfing/streaming and maybe to write an occasional letter. I am running another virus scan now.  It is supposed to be a ...
  • Thanks again, Tom. It's a desktop/tower.  Unfortunately (fortunately?) there is plenty of hard disk space. I also have the computer set up to defrag overnight weekly. The last full defrag was two ...
  • Thanks, Tom. I'll check it out, but as I purchased the computer as a refurb well after the update was available, I assume it came from the factory updated. Edit:  I just checked and the update is ...
  • Thanks.  My current computer is a refurb and it was a great deal --except for this little glitch.  Would definitely consider buying another one (although I admit the new 5K display is tempting). My ...
  • Ah.  Thanks.  Silly me. I guess I need to buy a cable.
  • Hmm.  Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't see a port to hook up another monitor.
  • Thanks, Lou.  The only other monitor I have here is an old Dell that is hooked up to my wife's PC.  I'll have to give that a try.  I also have to figure out how much I might be willing to pay to ...
  • Thanks.  Actually, it is a series of several thin dotted vertical lines starting on the right of the screen (when facing it) that are evenly spaced.  The lines don't have a specific color.
  • I have a late 2009 i7 2.8ghz iMac w/ 12gb RAM. A few months ago I started noticing vertical lines on the screen that is noticeable only with certain colored backgrounds (gray for example) and can ...
