The Migration Assistant was made by Apple for one purpose only, so it is the best way to migrate from one device to another. As for the 10.10 since it is still in beta phases, the Migration Assistant on the host computer might not work as it should, since beta phase testing is not completed yet. Since 10.10 has it own way of managing the files ect... the ...

Yes, since OS X 10.9 Mavericks there is a function called Target Display Mode or short TDM. In short: this is a manner to use your iMac as screen for another Mac, not for PC's. You can connect your mac by miniDisplayport or Thunderbolt cables. Unfortunately you need an 27-inch iMac Late 2009 or Mid 2010 to use mini display port, or an iMac-21 inch mid 2011 ...

Put the brightness of your computer as low as possible (mine would completely dim so i can't see it) most likely using less battery power or even less than it would while the display is fully brightened. Make sure your settings are set to mirror on the display only.

We are using an inexpensive Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort cable between newer (2013) MacBook Pros and the Dell U2713HM monitor, and getting the full 2560 x 1440 at 60 Hz. Our older MBPs need the more expensive Mini DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI Adapter from Apple.

I think the general consensus on this appears to be 'no' ... but have you tried something like Soundflower or Jack Audio, which allow non-standard routings. I can't test for headphones here, as I'm on a Mac Pro, but it might be worth 5 mins of your time to try it - http://cycling74.com/products/soundflower/ or http://jackaudio.org

Try a silicone keyboard cover from kbcovers.com. These work great with typing, keep dust and debris from getting between keys, and also prevent the keys from getting greasy.

Did you already do the SMC reset? If not do it even twice or thrice (firmware can be suprisingly stubborn). http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3964?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US

It is a known problem: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3069428 Someone has calculated the max wattage draw of a MBPr, but I can't find that a.t.m.

Had similar problem, so took it to Genius Bar for investigation. Turned out to be the battery charger sensor module, which is built into the battery level indicator on the side of the Macbook (the 5 green light thing). It was malfunctioning, basically telling the Macbook that any battery was dead, even if the battery was good. YMMV.

Your SMC reset did not work. Check your SMC reset procedure. You have a 5 Years old battery!- it is EOL, get a new one.

I've just gone through two brand new MacBook Pro Retina 15's, "fresh" from Apple Store, both of which were giving me only 3-4 hours on a fresh charge. After resetting NVRAM and SMC, I now get 5-6 or more hours. If you buy a new MacBook -- and are getting less than 5 hours per charge -- try resetting your NVRAM and SMC. How to Reset NVRAM: Shut down the ...

Apparently 3rd time is the charm. I asked to have this replacement power supply replaced one more time, and the 3rd power supply works fine. Very odd, but things are operating fine now.

This is clearly a mavericks problem. I still have not found a solution. Even after closing every single application and waiting for 5 minutes, it still doesn't cool down. It stays at 92C or hotter.

According to EveryMac the latest OS that your Macbook can run is 10.7.5 (Lion). A big focus on the preceding release 10.6 (Snow Leopard) was performance. It was the OS update that Apple advertised as having "no new features" as the work was focused on refining and improved the existing ones. Reducing the memory footprint, removing legacy code, the Finder ...

You don't need special hardware for this. Plug in both headphones, then open Audio Midi setup from /Applications/Utilities. Click the plus in the lower left corner and choose "Create Multi-Output Device." Check the checkboxes beside both headphones in the new panel on the right. If you want to rename it, you can double click the new entry in the list on the ...

there used to be an option for it as seen in this article: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3608?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US If you have a mac running mountain lion or below this still works. There is still an option to disable tap to click in system preferences/trackpad but that disables it even when you are not typing.

To boot into Internet Recovery, follow these steps: Shutdown your Mac Press the power button Quickly release it and hold down Command-Option-R Keep on holding it until ...

iMovie for Mac and iMovie for iPhone are unfortunately two separate and incompatible tools. You simply won't be able to transfer the iMovie projects to iMovie on Mac.

What you have here is a model number, not a "Serial Oder". You can look up Mac model numbers here, for example: http://www.everymac.com/ultimate-mac-lookup/?search_keywords=MD760F%2FA

I know your post is from a while back, but if this is still an issue, try my suggestions in this post. If those don't work, D.W. posted some other useful links in his comments. Hope you get this worked out :) Vlad
