The question is quite opinion based. Can it handle development - absolutely. Will it be fast enough - now that's a matter of your personal reception of "fast enough". The MacBook is quite a capable machine. It will run Development-Tools without any issues. It will perform lower than a MacBook Pro CPU and GPU-wise, so it really depends on your personal ...

Interesting. If you look at the cached version of Apple's MacBook Pro ports article, you can see that up until 14/4/151, the page ended with a section titled "USB Target Disk Mode": Your MacBook supports USB Target Disk Mode when you use it with a compatible, full-featured (“super speed”) USB-C cable. Note that the USB-C Charge Cable (included with ...

Emptying the trash would have worked as well. Launchpad shoes all apps it finds via spotlight, not just those who are in the Applications folder.

Depends on what they need to do. If it's purely hardware they can boot it from an external or use the guest account (assuming you set it up properly). If it's a hardware / software combination they may need to install something in your system, and that requires an admin password.

Unfortunately, information would not be attainable simply through the serial number. It is unlikely that you obtained the incorrect battery, since AASP's source their parts from Apple to perform warranty-service repairs. I poked around online and noted that you are not the only one who has the bq20z45 part number from SMP, nor the only one to have a Full ...

No. Wattage is not an issue. Lower-powered macbooks are be paired with higher-powered power source. A 85W power adapter is basically universal to all macbooks. 2011 MBA still has MagSafe 1/original port. Visually, plug on MagSafe adapter is L-shaped, while plug on MagSafe 2 is T-shaped. Apple sell a tiny addon that makes MagSafe adapters work with newer ...

Here is a place you can learn all about Batteries. Battery University. and from Apple here To you question on 8+ hour, the new MacBook Air (2104 model) has that. The 11-inch MacBook Air lasts up to 9 hours between charges and the 13-inch model lasts up to an incredible 12 hours. The cycle count is only one of the indicator and can not be used as ...

I have a mac mini late 2012 with 1TB hard drive. There were 875GB free when I decided to turn off filevault 2 on Yosemite. It started at 9am and was done before 8pm. I checked disk activity from the activity monitor and it said about 975GB read/write at the end and the speed varied from 40MB/s to 20 or even 10MB/s at the very end. So, it seems like ...

Only thing that worked for me was to create the same Yosemite boot disk on a firewire drive. MacPro Desktop Tower: OS X v10.9.5; 2x3.2GHz Quad Core Intel Xeon, 14GM 800 MHz DDR2, MacPro3,1.

That battery, while not old from age, has seen some, and then some more. The charge count shows it as half life, but the charge it can hold shows it as 1/3 of life left. The Service Battery is only a suggestion so do not wary about that one. The Replace battery is the next you get, and then the Replace Now is the final stage. Considering the Charge it can ...
