You can add key to the Info.plist file from this app. It's located inside app bundle, for example: /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Info.plist The key which needs to be added is: <key>NSHighResolutionCapable</key> <string>True</string> NOTE: make a copy of Your app first, so that You won't break anything.

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 ...

I thought I'd finally fixed the "mouse tracks but won't register clicks" issue by cleaning ALL battery contact points + & - in the belly of the mouse with rubbing alcohol on a swab. In my case, the + contacts were visibly "foggy"/dirty. After doing so, clicking worked but my iMac behaved as if it wouldn't let go of the "down click" state, so, it ...

Max supposed supported resolution on that card for an external monitor is 2560x1600, I'm afraid. The 2013 can do 4k, but not the 2012.

Only 2013 Macs (and upwards) are compatible with 4K. Current retina MacBook Pro (13" and 15") are compatible with 4K but only at 24Hz

I use a slightly damp micro-fibre cloth... actually, that's what I use to clean most things these days, from kitchen to bathroom to car...

I have a rMBP. I use Clorox Disinfecting Wipes on the keys and a Q-tip soaked with 99% isopropyl alcohol to clean in between the keys. I would not use anything less than 91%. Here is a photo of my keyboard:

I found the answer under this link http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3964 1.Shut down the computer. 2.Plug in the MagSafe power adapter to a power source, connecting it to the Mac if its not already connected. 3.On the built-in keyboard, press the (left side) Shift-Control-Option keys and the power button at the same time. 4.Release all the ...

If you don't mind losing all your network settings, you can try a total reset of your network preferences as described here. Close System Preferences In Finder, go to folder /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration Delete all network related files, namely: com.apple.airport.preferences.plist com.apple.network.identification.plist ...

Go to System Preferences -> Energy Saver and uncheck the 'Wake for Wi-Fi network access' option This fixed the network-not-connecting-after-sleep issue on my brand new MBP 10.9.4, but I wasn't using an Airport Extreme... so maybe that part of the equation is just coincidence in your case.

DisplayPad It works well for my iPad mini with Retina display. I've tried to use iDisplay, but soon after purchasing it I suddenly discovered it doesn't support retina displays.

Apple sells a 60W MagSafe2 Power Adapter for US$79.00 for the MacBook Pro with 13-inch Retina display. They also sell a 60W MagSafe Power Adapter.

Headphones and the Internal speakers are only OR option. You can not have AND. If your headset sometimes does not switch, check the plug for dirt stuck in it. If it is not the hardware, reset your SMC.

I do not know what is it that you trying to do. The HDMI cabled external monitor has nothing to do with the Network (Internet). Also the "My Trace route" applications is bit out of date. I would suggest to use the build in app called Network Utility to check the internet connection parameters including the trace route. The Network Utility app is located ...

The closer you can get to having a PC running OS X is through a virtual machine. Of course, you'll need a machine with a lot of resources (RAM, CPU, ...) to run it smoothly. Of course, this isn't more legal according to Apple's EULA.

You will not be able to install it. OS X detects if it runs on Apple hardware. It will refuse to work. There are ways of installing OS X on non Apple machines known as Hackintoshes, but it takes some manipulation of OS X.

I have an MBP Retina 15”, too, and I use Chrome (version 36), and everything looks just like it should. There’s no blockiness, nothing is the wrong size, all text is crystal clear, in short: there’s no problem with a Retina MBP and Chrome.

Apple’s EULA states that you’re only allowed to install OS X on Apple hardware. If it’s legal to go against an EULA depends on the country and its legislative authority.

No you can't add ram to that model. However, the computer should be freezing. There may be hardware error, take it to an apple store.

I am currently working with Google Chrome Canary, and it solves the issue, however it is only a beta and does sometimes crash.

Found a strange solution for the same issue with Mavericks on an iMac not clicking. However, while I couldn't click anything in the desktop, app windows or launchpad, I was able to click menu items. My solution was simply to open the alert menu (default set to swipe two fingers from the very right edge of a trackpad, toward the left). The first time the ...

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.

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.


1

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 ...
