iFixit, who is a proponent of replacing everything in your system, does not provide a guide to replace the RAM (only the entire logic board, on which the RAM is soldered). This alone should tell you that it is something that should not be attempted by users who are not professionals. One user did ask in their forums if it was possible. Here's one response: ...

What worked for me: open up a Terminal window and: sudo killall coreaudiod

Your display is made up of pixels which are each made up of 3 subpixels, red, green, and blue. (This is the LCD part in the picture below.) Unfortunately, since red is on the left, it may look a little off center. Here's a screenshot of the button: and here's what it looks like on my display: It would have been difficult for Apple to avoid this ...

Sure you can. On System Preferences → Users & Groups under Login Options you have Automatic login where you can chose an user. When you select an user there, It will automatically login when you switch your Mac.

You cannot erase the currently-running volume. Shut the computer down, restart while holding the option key, and choose the Recovery HD. Find Disk Utility in the menus and you will now be able to erase your internal storage.

Or is it massively more difficult to solder new memory into a laptop than it is to solder some simple electronics project? Yes, it is; although "massively more difficult" is almost an understatement. It's an entirely different process. Take a close look at the Macbook Air motherboard. The RAM chips are the four large components in the red box on the ...

Normally a Mac will wake to do some housekeeping, including checking email. However, its not a 'full wake' in that the screen does not come on, external drives don't mount etc. My iMac does this every hour, but the screen does not come on.

I think this may be your Bonjour Sleep Proxy waking up your Mac to see if it's alive. Take two of these and call me in the morning: http://support.apple.com/en-ca/HT201960 And also check this: http://ispire.me/fix-yosemite-rtc-alarm-wakeup-issue/

Maury is probably correct that BSP is waking your Mac while it is sleeping... This log line indicates that you do appear to be connected to an Apple TimeCapsule Airport wifi network: 12/12/2014 04:20:59.662 airportd[84]: _doAutoJoin: Already associated to “Airport - TC1TB (5 GHz)”. Bailing on auto-join. This line suggests that your Mac may be waking ...

In general, it isn't a good idea to put a power adapter on a light dimmer as the circuitry could malfunction if the voltage is too low. That being said, I believe the 45W adapter for the MacBook Air will survive- it just won't charge if the dimmer reduces the voltage below 100 volts. The AC is converted into DC and then applied to a voltage regulator ...

The simple answer here is yes, but the mid 2014 version was ONLY a processor bump. And most importantly the cpu bump was only in the two lower end models. Not the highest end i7. Thus if you (like me) get the max spec cpu MacBook air, and click about this mac - it will say "mid 2013". If you get any other spec it will say 2014. Confused? I was too!

In case anyone is reading this now, the 13" Retina screens can be put into a higher-resolution scaled mode 1680 x 1050 mode which is still readable. It's the same as the Macbook Pro 17" I used to use, just in a smaller space. This is ample width for using XCode or other IDEs

Your computer is currently set to mount and show hidden partitions, which is unusual. To get control of this feature, you need to activate the Debug menu in Disk Utility which then gives you the option of viewing and mounting hidden partitions, or indeed, making them hidden again. Try reading this article which gives instructions: ...
