  • You, or someone else said this before, so just want to point out that the max internal capacity of the rMBPs is 1Tb. Both my rMBPs (15" and 13") have 1Tb as supplied by Apple.
  • Yes, assuming you don't want them! If you do want them, export them. Note, after deleting the photos from within Photos app, they will go into the "Recently Deleted" folder (first screenshot), so ...
  • Has the 2007 MBP actually died? Is it too late to make a clone of it? If you can make a clone, you can connect it to your new iMac, and use Setup Assistant (preferable) or Migration Assistant to ...
  • As I understand it you have a referenced Aperture Library (originals stored separately outside Aperture Lib), and you deleted 300 Gb of the referenced photos with Finder. But the the deleted photo ...
  • While I share your frustration about Apple, just want to point out that iWeb still works for me in 10.10.3.
  • Another choice missing? (what I am doing) "Convert legacy Aperture Libraries to Lightroom. Use Photos and Lightroom in combination going forward". There is a lot to like about Photos, although it ...
  • What happens when you launch Aperture holding the option+ command keys: Should get this window:
  • Thanks for detailed explanation.
  • This is certainly my experience, but I assumed that since Apple used to describe the default integer scaled setting as "Best" in Display Prefs in Mavericks, that there were subtle differences I ...
  • Thanks for clearing up.
  • What you say above is completely logical to me, but odd that Apple doesn't actually mention 1152 x 720 as a supported scaled resolution in the tech specs. On my 13 and 15 rMBPs I find the second ...
  • I don't really understand the above. The actual resolution of the new MB is 2304 x 1440 but if you try and use it at that of course the text would be ridiculously small. The supported scaled ...
  • Agree, but you should be getting asked for the encryption key on the now-external drive, at least the first time. You can save the key in keychain so you don't get asked in future. If you are not ...
  • 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 ...
