Best is to use Apple tools already on your Mac to check your battery. Open Activity in utility folder- and look under the the Energy tab. Next, open About this Mac- More- sys report: Look for battery information there. It should show something like: Fully charged capacity (>6500 mah), --that is a good indicator how "old" is the battery, the older ...

No. The RAM is soldered to the logic board in all of these models. Here is the logic board from iFixit's Teardown of the low end 15'' model (2.0 GHz, 8 GB RAM, 256 SSD). Inside the yellow box are 16 x 512 MB DDR3 SDRAM (8 GB total) memory chips. As you can see, they are soldered directly to the board and cannot be replaced without replacing the whole ...

Per the teardown performed by iFixit, the RAM in Retina Displays is soldered to the logic board. It may be possible to undo the soldering and upgrade it, but the hassle is almost surely not worth it. https://www.ifixit.com/Teardown/MacBook+Pro+13-Inch+Retina+Display+Late+2013+Teardown/18695#s53264

The points raised are both correct. While having the protector will prevent scratches on the screen, it will also reduce the quality of the display quite significantly. When I bought my Mac, I was also met with this dilemma. After having tried the best screen protector that the Apple Store had, I decided not to go with one. The display doesn't really scratch ...

I'm assuming you have the 15" rMBP with the NVidia GT 750M. If you're trying to run at native resolution, 2880 x 1800, with full effects, that card is likely inadequate. The GT 750M I would estimate is roughly equivalent with a Radeon HD 6850, 6770, or even lower, placing it fairly low on this benchmark chart for the original Diablo III. The frame-rates ...

OS X 10.9.4 fixes a long-standing bug in Mavericks related to wi-fi connections coming out of sleep. http://support.apple.com/kb/HT6281?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US

I've fixed this problem awhile ago on a customer's machine, in that instance I believe it was an issue with the WebKit framework. I'm assuming you don't have access to an external bootable drive, (if you did, boot off it and test). Try booting to your Recovery HD and see if "Get Help Online" works. If it does we know the problem resides in your OS, I ...

Go into the VM’s settings (⌘+E), and enter Keyboard & Mouse. You will see various profiles. Select one to use (or leave the one that’s already selected), press the small cog at the bottom of the window, and pick Edit Profile…. Go into the Key Mappings tab where you’ll be able to map keys into other keys. While this won’t correct the keyboard layout on ...

After much searching and toying with various programs I finally found one that did exactly what I wanted. http://www.madrau.com/ Now I have this fancy menu that I can use to quickly change my screen resolution. I record my screen at 1280 x 720 HiDPi (720p). It puts black bars on the top and bottom of my screen, but for recording purposes that's totally ...

Ok, so I got the display and it works just fine - power it up and connect the HDMI cable and it's set to 4K @ 30Hz (the panel's limit). Sometimes when coming out of sleep, the HDMI panel keeps cycling through a black screen, displays "snow" or digital white noise. Sometimes it goes for 5 or more minutes! It's a weird bug and I know that opening the macbook ...

There's no such power settings in OS X. And even in Windows, all it does is dimming the display and changing the idle time for sleep. That's not really going to make a difference(using it plugged in I mean), your performance will stay the same. I guess you're going to have to play it on lower settings if you want a higher framerate.

There is no Mid-2013 Macbook Pro. If you have an early 2013 model, you can't run the 4k display due to hardware limitations. If you have the late 2013 model, you can indeed. By default, it runs at 30 Hz. If you enable Multi-Stream Transport on the external display, you can run it at 60 Hz via the Thunderbolt 2 port (equipped with DP 1.2 technology).

I wonder why noone mentioned wonderful and free Macs Fan Control app that works flawlessly on Windows. All mac hardware support is declared, OS X version is also available.

After a little searching I found a few options The Macbook Pro Dock Cable from Prototype Asia.. This looks like a very cheap clipping option. However, the company or individual selling it seems pretty small-scale. ZenDock is a simple docking solution that makes a single left side plug for power and other thuderbolt ports. At time of posting (July 2014), it ...
