1) RAM Upgrade As far as I'm aware, the laptop cannot be upgraded beyond 8GB. This is due to restrictions by the CPU and chipset architecture in that particular model. Unless you are a real power user who does lots of video editing or likes to have a lot of applications open at a single given point in time, 8GB should be perfectly fine. DDR4 ram is NOT ...

This is an old question, but for the benefit of anyone who comes across it: Apple introduced this capability under the name Fusion Drive in late 2012. Officially you can only get a Fusion Drive as a build-to-order option on a new Mac, but many people have reported success with configuring their own using the diskutil Terminal command in OS X 10.8.2 or later. ...

Make sure you have a Calendar set up in iOS, either an iCloud calendar (Settings -> iCloud) or another one (Settings -> Mail, Contacts, Calendars). If your only calendars are read-only, like Facebook Events and Birthdays, you won't be able to create events. In iOS 7 and 8, you can check the calendars that have been set up by tapping "Calendars" at the ...

The brand shouldn't really matter. I have G Skill in mine with no problems. The stock was Samsung. The trouble with that specific model is that it doesn't clock down faster RAM properly thanks to some hardware bug with the Nvidia chipset. It's very important to only use 1066 MHz DDR3 with this model (you can usually get away with faster on other models). I ...

This will work with the right toolkit (see links below) since the system software (Mac OS X) is almost hardware-agnostic, especially if you use a newer system than the original one. Actually some of the different MacBook Pro Mid 2010 models were sold with the same hard disks (the 500 GB serial ATA). The only thing you may have to adjust is the screen ...

Apple have stopped signing any iOS 7 for any device that can run iOS 8. As far as I am aware, you have no other choices than to stay on 7.0.4 or go to 8.0.2

There won't be a problem. I'm not 100% sure that upgrading to iOS 8 will be in your best interest, though, because I've seen lots of reports of people with 4Ss having performance problems on iOS 8.

Buy the "Basic" (as they call it in Apple Store) 2012 Mini and replace HD and RAM yourself is the most economical way. It's also the power user move. a) While leaving the factory HD in place, you can put in a second drive such as a SSD at where the optical bay used to be. You can dual boot two OSX's. One can be the daily OS, the other 1) as extra storage ...

You don't need to. Apple is regarding the last GM and last public beta as the final release of Yosemite and not offering an update path. Instead, wait for 10.10.1 and the Mac App Store will include this as an update path putting you back on track.

Go to Settings → General → Usage and delete the iOS 8 update package from the list.

It has been reported that upgrading iCloud to iCloud Drive corrects the issue and makes the shortcut both reappear and sync properly.

Given your budget (512GB SSD is quite expensive) I'd buy 8GB RAM + 256SSD and keep the 500GB HDD as a storage volume instead of the super drive. Depending on your country, it'll cost you around 200$ which is less expensive than a 500SSD and will bring you a lot of speed.

No RAM or processor replacement in the Mac Mini 2014 @Pol posted a link to macminicolo.net, here you can read about the soldered RAM. The processor and the RAM is soldered onto the motherboard. Even in a dust free room, a soldering iron and a steady hand, it would be nearly impossible. You are not allowed to do this on your own, your warranty will expire ...

I had the exact same problem. The one easy solution is ReiBoot. It's no scam and you can easily leave the recovery mode with just one click. After that, you can install it without further problems.
