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 ...

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 ...

No RAM or processor replacement in the Mac Mini 2014 An iFixit teardown reveals this. And @Pol posted a link to macminicolo.net were you can read about the soldered RAM. The processor and the RAM is soldered onto the motherboard. Even in a clean room, a soldering iron and a steady hand, it would be nearly impossible. You are not allowed to do this on your ...

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 ...

As it turns out, we can't replace RAM too. It's soldered.

Apple doesn't support its OSes as long as Microsoft supported XP. Wise advice would be possibly "Don't jump right now, but don't leave it too long" It's always wise to wait until applications are updated to support a new OS & initial bugs are ironed out, so waiting for 10.10.1 would be a sensible precaution, but you don't really want to hold off until ...

The problem is only accute if you have a lot of files in /usr/local -- a few hundred files is not a problem. It needs to be many thousands of files. The reason, according to this post, is: Part of the upgrade involves moving /usr/local out of the way. The process of moving those files back after the upgrade is done one file at a time and seems very slow. ...

Solution 1 Try it yourself. Create a second partition and install Yosemite on it. Play around to see wether is working for you or nit Solution 2 Install Yosemite on an external hard drive to play around without messing up your current installation For myself, I am running Yosemite on a MacBook Air 2011, 4GB RAM and 128GB of storage. Everything is ...

My MAS application is still broken and there are glitches everywhere. Looks like FUBAR BUNDY! I recommend a clean install. Backup any additional files which aren't already in your SuperDuper! image. Probably it's faster to just backup/copy your or all user folder(s) to an external drive. Please check your hardware with your original system DVD (Apple ...

Nevermind, got it. App Store -> Purchases -> Press Option and you will see cancel.

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.
