comment Use Goal0 Nomad 7m Solar Panel to charge MacBook Air?
Thanks for helping GZ, it's nice when a company cares that much (or at least its employees :). To clarify, you say that with the Airline Adapter I CAN power the MacBook Air, at least partially right? I don't really care about fully charging it as long as I can power it during like ~3 sunlight hours. You said you could do this with your larger panels, so could I accomplish this with the 7m or only the 13.5+? (product selling motivation aside ;) Also, would it charge if I used a 3rd party car adapter? Just curious, if it's really 6.5v why does it say <22v? Is that after it's transformed or what?

comment Use Goal0 Nomad 7m Solar Panel to charge MacBook Air?
Thanks for the reply. I think calling myself an Electrical Engineer would be a bit of a stretch (as you can probably tell by now ;). On the other hand, Goal0 makes a 13.5W pannel (and many larger than that). I imagine you could use this to charge a more substantial battery (like a Hypermac or a Sherpa), which you could in turn use to charge the macbook. Some day I'm going to figure out a way to charge my Macbook Air dammit!

comment Use Goal0 Nomad 7m Solar Panel to charge MacBook Air?
yeah I guess you're right ;) They're must be a typo on the product because while their website says 7 Watts, the back of my product has "~7 Amps" written on it... I probably should have noticed this when I first read 7 amps. That's enough electricity to send someone's heart into fibrillation.

comment I have 21.5GB free. Why won't my MacBook Air 2010 let me use Boot Camp?
@Ryan I don't want to install Windows, but unfortunately that's not an option. I need to be able to use some things for an EE class that only run on Windows.

What can you tell me about installing Windows on a USB drive? Can I use a flash drive or does it have to be a hard drive? This seems like the best solution because VirtualBox won't work with the myDAQ I need to use Windows with. I thought of a USB drive before but dismissed it because I thought Mac OS X couldn't boot from USB flash drives. Thanks for the quick answer!

comment I have 21.5GB free. Why won't my MacBook Air 2010 let me use Boot Camp?
......But I did think about the SWAP file, like you said. But it shouldn't be 10GB. I looked at it with DaisyDisk and the file is around 3GB, which is instantly deleted if the space is needed. As far as defragmentation goes, Mac OS X will only automatically defragment files under 20MB, which is something that surprised me when I learned it because I originally had the same thought as you. I also don't think that having 10GB free will slow my computer. The MBA has Flash memory, not a regular HDD, so it's not affected by that phenomenon, at least it wasn't when I only had 100MB free.

comment I have 21.5GB free. Why won't my MacBook Air 2010 let me use Boot Camp?
Yeah I use DaisyDisk on a daily basis it seems. At one point I had 100MB free TOTAL. My MBA has a 64GB hard drive. The system occupies about 20GB of that with it's OS and various libraries and stuff, so that's like 44GB free, then -10GB for Xcode and SDKs, then -5GB for Photoshop, Illustrator, Word, iWork Suite, and Aperture. That means I have only used about 8 GB total for all my other applications and files. That's pretty good seeing as my graphic art files are often hundreds of MBs or even a few GBs. These are my job, so without these things my system is completely worthless to me.........

Thanks. It's nice to know that. I'll just use AccuTerra then.

comment Which Mac to develop iPhone apps?
@Everybody The Mac Mini simply packs the most power for the buck of any Mac on the market right now. For $300 less than a MBA you will get a 2x faster processor and bigger HDD and more RAM, better graphics, et cetera.

@Dori Yeah I know Macs don't need to be defraged but that's only for files under 20MB. At one point my HDD was down to 100MB free, so I could have large files spread all over the hard drive.

@Brian Yeah, a fresh restore should do the trick... Don't restore from backup.

comment How can I tell if my MacBook's iSight has a hardware problem?
True it won't be. After 5 years, however, it's probably time for a new computer anyway :)

@Lizzan Yeah iTunes honestly sucks with syncing. It keeps telling me that my iPhone has like 5GB free but when I try to sync 1 more 5MB song to it it tells me it needs like another 124MB.

comment What's the purpose of the eject button on the MacBook Air?
You drag a mounted disk (including CDs) to the trash icon in the Dock. It will change to an eject symbol.
