The only caveat to "quickly ejecting" disks with any reliability is that they will not eject if there are files in use which reside on them. That said, you can force eject disks, but that would not be ideal if files are, in fact, in use. Easiest way to instantly eject all disks is by invoking an Applescript (could also create a shell script, but Applescript ...

No the parts are not compatible nor are the cabling and mount points. See http://ifixit.com for take apart manuals and possibly repair parts for your broken LCD on the MacBook Pro.

Use a local account on your mac to connect to the WiFi, then logout again, you won't loose connection, and you'll only have to do this once since your Mac will remember the network.

The other thing to think about is that you can't tell OSX not to switch to the discrete graphics when a program that would use it is started, and this can also have a hit on the amount of time you get on a battery charge. Is that also worth a few percentage points of graphics performance? If you regularly play graphics-intensive games while plugged into ...

You already have the answer to your question. As far as I see it, the dGPU will be only beneficial for demanding games, heavy 3D work... If you're planning on using Solidworks, Maya, Lightwave, or any 3d creation or CAD application get the Iris pro one. It is significantly faster for those tasks and not that far behind the GT650M-750M for gaming The iGPU, ...

On OS-X Mountain-Lion, I can option-click one of the "Eject" icons (hold down option, then click the eject icon), and all external partitions will eject. Will update (if my answer also works on Mavericks), once I get home to try it out on my OS-X Mavericks machine tonight.

You can use the menu bar app Ejector http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/12216/ejector to eject all ejectable volumes. The only regrettable part for me is that I can't eject them without logging in.

I use launchbar to automate this task. It has a command shortcut to Eject All Ejectable Volumes. It's incredibly fast and if you turn off most of the indexing rules, the memory footprint and CPU usage can be tiny. It's much more powerful than this one trick, but it does do that trick very well and you'd probably be fine using the free version for that ...

if you happen to have the same setup everytime you want to eject several external disks at once, you could use AppleScript / Automater and make your own keyboard shortcut. There is a detailled description how to do this over here: http://superuser.com/questions/405330/global-keyboard-shortcut-to-eject-external-hard-drive-on-mac-osx-lion

Apple sells a 60W MagSafe2 Power Adapter for US$79.00 for the MacBook Pro with 13-inch Retina display. They also sell a 60W MagSafe Power Adapter.

i have had a couple os installs where changing ANY network setting caused the pref pane to crash. this included enabling disabling ports. makes no sense, but it doesn't seem unique when i was looking into it. what i did to fix it was to remove the prefs for the pref pane and start fresh. it could have something in the plist from a previous device that's ...

Headphones and the Internal speakers are only OR option. You can not have AND. If your headset sometimes does not switch, check the plug for dirt stuck in it. If it is not the hardware, reset your SMC.

I do not know what is it that you trying to do. The HDMI cabled external monitor has nothing to do with the Network (Internet). Also the "My Trace route" applications is bit out of date. I would suggest to use the build in app called Network Utility to check the internet connection parameters including the trace route. The Network Utility app is located ...
