I once had the same problem. I didn’t know if it was the Retina screen. Actually I searched and tried some many solutions. These are what I collected; I hope it could help most of MBP eye discomfort. Maybe the fonts are too small, or the backlight too bright, try to adjust font and backlight brightness as the same as the former computer. Go to the eye ...

The following facts are relevant to the workaround. A separate copy of SystemUIServer runs on behalf of each user, owned by that user, when the user has a GUI login. This is very convenient because it means we can kill this program without requiring passwords and suchlike. SystemUIServer appears to have been very nicely cordoned off by Apple ...

There could be a number of reasons to cause this: Amount of storage The age torrented applications or files. These are just the main ones, of course there is others. Try cleaning out your mac! Note: I am not accusing you of torrenting application!

Possible methods depending on the scratch depth. 1- Fill it - for deep scratches. Fill it with toothpaste! or professional glass filler. Believe it or not, toothpaste can be used to patch some screen scratches. Actual toothpaste, not gel or paste-mouthwash hybrids, must be used. Users should gently massage the paste into the scratch with their ...

First, in answer to the first question: No, a batteries remaining power does not drop consistently regardless of remaining charge. The simplest answer to the rest of the question is: you want to run the power inverter for as little time as possible. The explanation of this and method to accomplish it follows. The power inverter uses some power itself, so ...

The remaining time is simple to calc. The battery power vs the consumption rate in this example: Charge Remaining (mAh): 4299 Amperage (mA): -787 (the consumption)- this is a variable based on computer usage. My computer says I have 5:30 Hours left. (which is about correct 4299/787=5.3) However, you will notice it is not a liner function. The ...

Ok, I managed to boot to Safe mode using this: Access the command line by either opening Terminal remotely, or by logging into the computer using SSH. Use the following Terminal command: sudo nvram boot-args="-x" If you want to start in Verbose mode as well, use sudo nvram boot-args="-x -v" instead. After using Safe Mode, use this ...

As you said in the comments : Memtest is failing Apple Hardware Test indicates a possible memory failure This a clearly a bad indicator for your memory. The fact that a premium reseller is not taking your MacBook Pro for some obscure reasons would make me call a huge bulls**t. They have to take if it's defective !

What if you click while holding two fingers on the track pad? If that works then it might just be the setting: from System Preferences, Trackpad, you're looking for the setting pictured in the following screenshot. (Screenshot courtesy of wikihow.com)

Generally speaking the Apple Migration Assistant will (optionally) transfer applications as well as documents. How well that works with any individual application will be up to the application vendor. And that info may be on their web site. So it is theoretically possible to transfer settings, documents and applications from one Mac to another (ethernet, ...

Upgraded to Yosemite 10.10 and problem is now fixed.

Yes handoff is available for Safari in Yosemite and iOS 8.02, I just tested it. But it does not work with Google Chrome as shown in the screenshot (at least not yet and in my case). But you can use iCloud tabs on your iPhone. It shows you which tabs are opened on other devices, have a look a this page. It is for iOS7 but it works the same in iOS8.

From my experience apple prioritizes quietness over cooling. I see my MBPr frequently reaching 95C on medium loads, if SMCFancontrol's stats are to be believed. You can use that app to manually increase fan speed and provide more comfortable cooling. I raised mine to 3000rpm from 2200rpm on my 2012 Retina 15". On a personal note, I'm very grateful for the ...

You could use the Guest account and Parental Controls. Otherwise create a separate account for each user if thats manageable and setup custom parental controls that block what you want for the separate users. Set up parental controls

Correct - you are a missing that component. Assuming you purchased directly from Apple, You’re supposed to get the magsafe, as well as the extension AC adaptor. Contact Apple support or visit your local Apple store if applicable.

Best for retina = every on-screen pixel is represented by two pixels on the display More space = every on-screen pixel is represented by one pixel on the display. In between these two settings every on-screen pixel is represented by 1.5 pixels on the display. Because there is no such thing as half a pixel, the drawing is not exact so there will be ...

I have a MacBook Pro Retina. I connected a 27" Asus Display directly to the HDMI port, and a 27" Samsung Display to the Thunderbolt port through a DVI to VGA adapter. I now have three displays stacked horizontally, with quite some nice real estate. Both external displays are 1920 x 1080 and have the Mac with Retina resolution of 2560 x 1600. You can do at ...

Change the routers security to WEP and this problem goes away. However WEP security is less secure and you may have to choose between the lesser of the two evils.

Absolutely it is safe. It has been designed for that, it does not have a locked in plug, but a magnetically coupled plug for that reason. I have done that on purpose or by accident (tripping over the cable) many times without problems.

Here is the official link that says that you can connect a 4k monitor but at 30HZ, and on some setups (e.g. macbook pro retina late 2013) at 60HZ http://support.apple.com/kb/ht6008 Also, the support article on thunderbolt FAQ is relevant to what monitors can be driven at high resolutions: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3382#11

Since your AHT did not detect problems with CPU or GPU or RAM or Disk next step is to look at your Console log. Based on the Console log you published it is your: BSD process name corresponding to current thread: kextd creating problems sometimes when you insert the USB. The kextd is responsible for loading unloading drivers as needed. Since it is ...

I managed to get full 3840×2160 @30Hz on my late 2012 rMBP (intel HD4000) using just a mini-displayport to displayport cable and an app called SwitchResX. The only possible difference is that I used the AOC U2868PQU 4K display which uses MST and I think your display is only SST. Anyway Here are my custom settings, you need to reboot the machine to apply ...

What's officially "supported" and what's possible don't match. I managed to get 4K out of it at 30Hz. I took a screenshot as proof: Just a normal mini-displayport<->displayport cable was used. More details in my answer here: http://apple.stackexchange.com/a/147765/39878 or on this blog post: ...

I see no reason why you could not plug three external monitors into a Mac, whether it's running OS X, or Windows under bootcamp. There are two Thunderbolt connectors and one HDMI connector, and they all work as video outputs - the driver should be able to handle a monitor plugged into each of these. As the comment on the question mentions, Windows does not ...

Based on this post and the other one at MacBookPro10,1 goes to gray screen when a USB is inserted : I would say that you're probably looking at a faulty logic board. The system should be taken into a Genius Bar or an authorized Apple repair centre for further evaluation and/or repair.

Based on this post and the other one at MacBookPro10,1 had problems booting, now some system images are pink and fuzzy : I would say that you're probably looking at a faulty logic board.

Battery life is heavily dependent upon how you use the system. Things such as leaving screen brightness at maximum can have significant effect on how quickly power is drained from a charged battery. Applications such as running guest operating systems inside of a virtual machine can be I/O- and CPU-intensive tasks that will also reduce the longevity of a ...

To get a better look at your power consumption: Open the Activity Monitor in your Utility folder. Click on the Energy Tab. Look how much power is Each application consuming, and how much over time. Also look for "app nap" capability (application will go to sleep if not used)
