I have the same problem on my Dell U2713HM monitor with a new Macbook Pro w/Retina. To illustrate, here's a screenshot of a document shown at 100% in Preview (left) and Adobe Reader (right): On my Retina screen, the document on the left looks great. So I guess this is a clear-cut Retina issue. Don't bother running the Ruby script cited elsewhere (the one ...

One workaround is to get Seil, which is mainly used for remapping the Caps Lock key. Check the first box, Change Caps Lock, and change the "keycode" on the right to 59 (the code for left control).

From the graph displayed either your router or your MacBook (?) is having problems maintaining a connection. I assume this happens even when the computer is in the same room as the router? This is important as wifi signals are often attenuated by some kinds of building materials (wiring, metal studs, brick/stone walls, longer distances) so being near the ...

It turns out the cause is Spotify. It seems to be a bug with the Spotify app. Yet no bug fix has been released. If you have spotify running, kill it and see if you get this issue still.

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.

Retina must be supported by the app for it to be displayed in Retina. If the app does not support Retina then the app will not be displayed in Retina. You may be able to force Retina for an app with Retinizer: Retinizer is a small app I wrote that allows apps that aren’t retina ready and are displayed pixelated at 1x to display their UI widgets at ...

You ABSOLUTELY can do this. The statement on the box is wrong. You can use either two mini-display port to displayport cables, or two Thunderbolt cables. My statement was based on the fact that you can (according to Apple's documentation) run two Thunderbolt monitors on that laptop, and the available resolution on the Thunderbolt cable is clearly capable ...

Assuming the warranty is expired, you'll be fine. If you want to just remove the dust from the inside, you're on the right track. Get a can of air, a vacuum, and a pentalobe driver set. Don't actually vacuum the inside though - turn it on and hold the nozzle up to the outlet of the area you're blowing the dust from. Static won't be a problem as long as you ...

I was just looking for this exact question. Just got a brand new MBP, latest gen, 15 in with dedecated graphics card about a week ago. I was running games on it for most of its use, upon which a hot temperature is expected, but now I am running just chrome and skype and the laptop is continuing to burn up on my lap. I am used to MBPs before and have had them ...

If you mean you may have to remove the charger when the battery is at 100%, even though (I don't actually know whether it does) mbp disallowed current input, i'd remove it anyway. I hope I answered your question.

I use a simple app called "Salute". Hitting Command - Control - Delete allows me to quickly enable screen saver and walk away from my work station. Its a bit dated (it hasn't been updated recently), but it still works fine with 10.9.4 as I haven't had any trouble with it. http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/19689/salute

I use LaunchBar which comes with two actions that are instant: Lock Screen and Start Screen Saver (I have a password lock on resume from screen saver so they're more or less equivalent). Both take effect immediately and because LaunchBar is awesome the commands to remember them aren't some four-key, esoteric, multi-key combination I need to burn in to my ...

No, it's not as energy efficient as the MacBook Air. How could it be? Apple lists the expected (high end) battery life for each of their battery powered devices on their site. If battery life and a large screen are your primary interests, it sounds as though you'd be better off getting an iMac or a Mac Pro, assuming you need the dedicated graphics card. If ...

If you are concerned about the volume level, try headphones that have between about 16 and about 32 ohm impedance and with a high sensitivity (dB/mW), say more than about 90 or 100. There are headphones with over 110dB/mW sensitivity with impedance in that range. If the output impedance of the device is a bit lower than the input impedance of the ...

You can drag the screens into the arrangement you wish in the Displays Control Panel, just click, hold, drag. The screen you are moving will show a red surround on both the panel & the display itself, so you know which is which.

Unfortunately I cannot comment on the other answer. Ian is correct in that the drive inside the new rMBP's are solid-state drives, however, you can upgrade the drive to a larger drive yourself, but in doing so you may void the warranty so make sure that you verify that first, otherwise, you can take it into an Apple Store and they likely will upgrade it for ...

The mid-2014 Retina MacBook Pro is not user-upgradeable. The 128 GB drive in the unit is a solid-state, flash-based memory module, it is not a spinning disk. It is as fast as you can get when it comes to I/O performance in that laptop.

You’ll never be able to rule out software with doing a clean install. You are a tinkerer and sometimes little changes that seem meaningless can create problems. However, if your MBP has a traditional disk rather than an SSD, I think it’s likely that you are seeing normal performance. As icondaemon mentioned, the step-down in performance in going from an SSD ...

You can upgrade using Samsung XP941 series drives. 128GB, 256GB or 512GB available. Very expensive at this time though.

It's perfectly safe to use the MacBook Pro Charger with a MacBook Air. Going the other way around though will most likely charge the MBP at a slow pace, like an iPad charging through USB or a 5W Wall Adapter. For more information, see this Apple KB article: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2346

I have a very similar issue on my 2012 retina display MacBook Pro. Since the latest update 10.9.4 there has been a delay in the volume adjustments for both the speakers and headphone jack when using the volume buttons on the keyboard. The delay is of 3 or 4 seconds. I can bypass this delay using the volume adjustment on my menu bar at the top right of my ...

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

Tried using the mini Display Port to the Dell's Display Port? That's how I connect to 2 2560*1440 screens.

A 13" MacBook Pro Retina late 2013 can power three external displays plus its own screen which would make four total. Here is a video showing the external displays working; 1 HDMI, 1 MiniDisplay Port, and 1 thru a USB3.0 Port using a Startech external video card to DVI adapter. All the external displays are old Apple Cinema Displays hooked up thru each ...

No it is not enough to have 4GB, since it is minimum you can have and you will always run at max of it. Mavericks will do the best to manage the space, but there is a limit what it can do. Big RAM users (aside of the OS) are the web browsers. It is all dependent what is your activity, apps you use. As said Mavericks will do great job in working your RAM ...

I would say that will depend on your work. If performance is of the essence, go with the 15" model. You're also going to appreciate the extra screen estate when having documentation and your code side by side. Graphics however, play little role when it comes to virtualization especially when you don't run any graphics-intensive apps.

Summary: "I come back to work the system is locked down (i.e. I have to put my password), which is fine, and all applications are closed. They do however re-start and try to recover the state as I left them." This sounds like you're actually logging out and back in, whereas what you want is to just require a password when waking (but remain logged ...

It sounds like your Mac is set to automatically log you out after a period of inactivity. Open System Preferences from the Apple menu in the top-left corner. Open the "Security & Privacy" preference pane. Click on the "Advanced..." button in the bottom-right corner. You may need to unlock the pane using the padlock icon in the bottom-left corner. I ...

I have exactly the same problem with my MacBook (as I bought it in such a condition). I bought the screen from eBay. Its quite easy to fix if you follow the instructions on iFixit. You should consider buying only display, not the whole top assembly, as the prices really different. If your top cover is OK, you don't need to buy it, its possible just to change ...

Solved it! I had to plug the adapter into my non-retina MacBook Pro, then hit the Auto button on the monitor. It readjusted itself and moved the image back to the center of the screen. Now it's plugged back into my retina MacBook Pro and working perfectly. So I guess it's some kind of weird issue between the retina MacBook Pro specifically and the monitor, ...

VGA is analogic, so you have to use Auto function of your monitor to calibrate it's correct size/position. You can also set it from the monitor's OSD control.
