Yes it will. Just be sure you want the keyboard layout in the country where you buy. Changing the physical keys is practically a non-stater. Everything software will reconfigure properly.

I'm afraid not. It is hardware-dependent, not software. The earliest model to support Target Display Mode was the Late 2009 iMac. See : Use your iMac as a display with Target Display Mode

Probably a hardware problem rather than a software problem. Take it to the Apple Store and they'll check the underneath of the keyboard.

Very likely your MacBook has a defective GPU. You are lucky however, since there is a recall for your specific model. Check your eligibility here and contact AppleCare.

I find that when AirDrop stops working even when both devices are within bluetooth range and on the same Wi-Fi network, I often have to reboot both devices. There may be another way, but rebooting both has almost always fixed it. Also of note: if you have any firewall enabled, those settings can interfere as well.

VirtualBox 5 now has the ability to encrypt VMs directly, so maybe the sparsebundle approach is moot in the narrow case, but still very reasonable in the widest cases.

I had the same problem with my rMBP 15" late 2013. Like Exact same problem. Apple is terrible at quality and consistency control in making drivers. Intall this older kext(wifi driver) and it will fix your problem. I can connect to N only networks on 2.4 and 5 ghz and get 300 mbps transmit rates now. Here is what I did to get the WIFI working as described ...

Actually you will need to download Bootcamp from Apple as all the drivers are there. I've never tried to download it on a PC but it should be possible to open the BootCamp.app package on a PC (it's just a folder) and get to the drivers that way. But if you have Windows 8.1 bootable install media you should be able to boot your Mac from it, format and select ...

You could use Migration Assistant to move from the old to the newer, although OS X seems to have its own ideas about which OS are acceptable. Time Machine is also a good way to transfer files to a new installation. If these work this is probably the easiest. The ultimate tool is to use the command line tool rsync which can transfer files and also ...

You could open up the cases and swap the HDD. This is probably the fastest way, if you don't mind using a screwdriver.

Make a time machine backup of the new mac, then disconnect the external drive. Next, use the migration assistant and a network cable or wifi connection between the two to transfer everything from the old mac to the new one. Next, use the migration assistant on the old one to import the time machine backup from the external drive.

You need a USB Audio Mixer like this one Presonus Audiobox USB When you use audio software, if you CAN monitor the output, there will be a delay because it has to come in through the mic, record to disk, they play it back. What this device does is take the live audio and send it into two different directions: to your computer for recording to an ...

I'm sorry to hear about your wife's MacBook Air; it's always frustrating when accidents like that happen. According to this step in iFixit's teardown of the 2013 Air, it appears that the trackpad is attached to the motherboard, instead of the keyboard: Again, best of luck with the repair of the MacBook. If she can do without for a little while, waiting ...

Yes and no. While the trackpad is connected to the keyboard, the trackpad and keyboard are separate parts and the trackpad may be fine, depending on where the water spilt and how quickly is was dried out. If you have some experience with repairing electronics, get a 2013 MacBook Air keyboard assembly. It should include the keyboard and the aluminum panel ...

I had this problem as well, It was a terrible shock because it happened on my brother's computer after telling him about this trick. His display got stuck upside down and the error message "could not open display preferences pane" kept showing up. To fix it I reset his PRAM which seemed to do nothing, then I shut down the computer, waited a while, and booted ...
