comment Comfortable typing on a MacBook Pro?
ideally I'd love to continue using it on my lap, not heavy at all right now. But I'd be happy just having a good portable solution even requiring a desk.

comment Comfortable typing on a MacBook Pro?
I love that mStand! But I realize I couldn't use it on my lap, assuming I could feel comfortable balancing it on my lap anyway.. because I need a mouse and the wireless keyboard doesn't have a trackpad. Also great idea about the small flat object in the back of the MBP. You know what would be interesting for me is to have a wireless keyboard and a wireless monitor (not even necessary to be wireless) that I can balance on my lap. Then I could have a much more comfortable experience. But the keyboard would have to have a trackpad...

Not a bad idea, but I very much like that mStand Ingmar posted instead of a bookstand. The keyboard doesn't go underneath, but because the mStand is at an angle the screen doesn't appear as far away.

Very nice, I actually would love something to protect my keyboard and palm rest and trackpad. Not sure this would solve my wrist comfort issues though.

comment Can't install Homebrew on Mac OS X Lion
I think that would've worked, I was reluctant to because I didn't want to mess with Homebrew's mechanism for enabling non-sudo required installs. The problem seemed to be that Homebrew added o+w permission to /usr/local, but OS X Lion's main user is part of the group of /usr/local, so adding g+w worked. I assume I can now safely remove with sudo chmod g-w /usr/local?

comment Hard drive on latest macbook pro 17 accessed too often
I have to find my OS X disks for that hardware test, but the Activity Monitor didn't really highlight much. When I scroll in Chrome making that hd sound WindowServer and Chrome spike up to 10% and 15% cpu, respectively. Up from about 2% without doing anything.

Do you know what tech specs are for the RAM or where I can look that up? My 2nd question wasn't how many RAM slots there are, I know there are 2, it's whether the included 4gbytes was 2x2gbytes or 1x4gbytes.
