For every OS X 'delta' release - 10.10.1/2/3/ ...10.10.4 etc - which App Store will download to each Mac there is a simultaneous 'combo' update release which rolls up all the previous deltas into one single downloadable update. It was for many years considered the 'pro' way to do the update, as it can also correct potential update issues that the delta ...

This should be easy to resolve. Power down and boot into Recovery HD (Command R) or safe boot (shift) Once you know the OS can boot itself - check for free space. Clean up cache or temporary files or delete large databases that you have backed up (Outlook email, Photo databases, Music Libraries) to get 20 GB of free space. Run Disk Utility to ensure the ...

The OS X Server App allows you to cache data on your network as well as manage multiple devices and installations/updates on them. This would simplify things for you in the long run, but there might be a slight learning curve to start out. I haven't used the Yosemite version of the Server App yet so can't give you more specifics. It's something to look into ...

The answer to your question, in short: It is always advised that you have the latest possible OS for your computer. This is due to the myriad of bug fixes and security patches that come along with new OS updates and intermediary releases. I would suggest bumping up the RAM to the highest possible as well, but at least to 4GB. This should result in an ...

Due to the fact that Apple provides upgrades and fresh installations of their operating systems for free, they would (in most cases) only provide support for the latest operating system and (in many cases) the one before it (in today's case (as of the time of this answer), OS X Yosemite and OS X Mavericks respectfully). If there is something wrong with ...

I installed 2x 2GB DDR3 1333 PC3-10600 into a late 2009 mac mini. Running 10.10.2, which struggles on the default 2GB. It started up fine, and apps were so snappy, but then the crashes started. The machine is completely unstable, with kernel panic errors every 30 odd seconds forcing a restart. Sadly the original 2GB RAM has gone back in. I'd recommend ...
