  • Not exactly! At the time I would have killed for more speed from the old MacPro! If I was working now I would definitely get the 15" for the extra speed, with an external monitor....or I would ...
  • OneDrive has issues with OS X metadata, like symlinks and tags, and also file names. I tried it as I have an Office 365 sub, but went back to Dropbox which is fully compatible with OS X. More about it
  • I have a maxed out late 2103 15" and a maxed out late 2013 13" rMBP. I am only going to tell you what you expect to hear. For multi processor tasks the 15" is twice as fast, and single processor ...
  • Of course! If you combine HDDs in raid setup so that the speed matches SSD then USB3 could become the bottleneck, as with SSD.
  • Thunderbolt will not offer any extra speed over USB3 for spinning disk HDDs. The bottleneck is the disk not the connection. USB3 is enough for HDDs. Thunderbolt will show benefit for SSD.
  • When the new ones are released the price of current generation ones will drop, and they will be available in the Apple Refurb Store, which is a good way to buy any mac. Unless desparate, it is ...
  • What do you mean by the "backup function will not" work? What app are you using for backup up? or are you taking about the WD supplied software which I think includes some app. I can't remember now ...
  • Oh dear! that was meant to say "Retina screens are a lot less reflective than previous versions" New Year resolution: must check posts properly before hitting 'post'
  • I used to feel the same but now have two rMBPs and never give reflections a thought. The Retina screens are not less reflective that previous versions....don't tar all glossy screens with the same ...
  • Two late 2013 rMBP running 10.10.1. Following bus powered external drives working fine:- Seagate Fast 4Tb (uses 2x M9T in internal hardware raid) Seagate Slim 2Tb WD My Passport 2Tb Transcend ...
  • I do sympathise but personally I would want to solve it, not forego USB3 altogether.
  • I certainly didn't intend to imply (and don't think I did) that there isn't a USB3 problem for some people. Unlike the post I was replying to, I am always very careful not to extrapolate my own ...
  • I have had great reliability and speed with USB3 externals and memory sticks with two rMBPs. Just posting to counter the impression that "USB3 is a complete and total nightmare on Apple".
  • I used to have a 2011 17 inch MBP, which is USB2 only, but achieved reliable USB3 with a Caldigit Thunderbolt Hub . (mine is actually the Mk1 version). There are Thunderbolt docks which give FW800 ...
  • I know nothing about the import tool but IMHO putting all your pics in one big folder would be a big mistake. You can export from Aperture by project or folders of projects (one level deep from ...
  • Someone posted earlier that the import tool requires Aperture 3. I suggested the maintenance tools to try to solve your Aperture 2 instability problems.....did it do that? You don't have to use the ...
  • Personally I would want to sort out why Aperture 2 is so unreliable that you can't export from it. I would not want to embark on the Aperture 3 route (I know you don't want to) with Aperture 2 not ...
  • Make sure everything is well backed up before doing anything. Assuming your current Aperture Library is managed, you could either "export originals" or "relocate originals" to a new folder ...
  • I have both. Three main factors for me, in order of priority: 1. Flash. I use the RX10 with a HVL-F60M which has enough power and bounce capability to give beautiful natural looking bounce photos ...
  • The dodge tool in Photoshop lightens locally as you describe. http://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/dodge-burn-image-areas.html
