    I am definitely surprised by the popularity of the 13 inch MBP compared to the rest of their lineup (including the Airs).

    People like mechanical HDD's, optical drives, port selection and standard voltage processors.

    Though 1280 X 800 is a joke.

    Yeah, I guess a lot of people use these as there one and only computer and I personally can't imagine not having a DVD drive on my one and only computer. I would have thought more of those people would want the 15 inch, but they may want a lighter, cheaper machine.

    A $1799 starting price is too much for most people. Add in applecare and you easily surpass the $2k mark.

    Plus there are occasional sales on the mbp 3 that put it around ~$999

    Even then its still much higher than the average selling price:

    Apple has a refurb section on their site and you can sometimes get a laptop for $800.00.

    Hey guys, I need some assistance with my iMac '08. The machine still works quickly, and I rarely have any issues with it, but I've been noticing something lately, and another thing happened today that I thought I should ask about.

    First, whenever I shut down my Mac and boot it back up, when the computer displays the desktop a folder in Finder automatically opens titled "Mac OS". Within the folder are things like "config", and other similar titles. It hasn't caused any problems, as I simply have to close the folder, but I've never been quite sure why it does it.

    Now today, when I turned my computer on, I was greeted by what seemed to be a big terminal, where I could enter commands and the like. I'd never seen this screen before, and had absolutely no idea what to do, so I just turned the machine off and booted it back up, and it worked normally. I do, however, notice that there are two folders in my Trash Can now, titled "Recovered files" and "Recovered Files #1". After looking a bit deeper they seem to be nothing more than files that must have automatically been trashed after a MS Word error, so perhaps that's nothing.

    I suppose I'm mainly concerned with the terminal screen I got this morning, and the mysterious folder that likes to pop up whenever I turn my computer on.
    Read my work on Medium, my blog, and connect with me on Twitter.

    The recovered items in your trash usually happens during a bad shut down or crash of some sort (a bad shut down can be a forced shutdown). The weird boot up to a terminal environment was most likely either caused by that occurrence or you were accidentally pressing a key during boot up, which can accidentally make you go into Single User Mode, Safe Mode, etc.

    What do the contents of the MacOS folder say?

    Been doing a ton of brain storming, scoping, architecture, etc., on the iPad recently. It’s just _so_ convenient and it’s very “transparent” as a tool. The only thing I want to improve is being able to sketch with a little more control and detail ... so that being said, I ordered on of these:

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ls_o00_s00_i00

    New[er] stylus design using a conductive mesh ball vs. a rubberized tip (which sound hit or miss and eventually get more miss than hit).



    Comes in a few colors/finishes and a smaller model with a leash (connects to the earphone jack). It’ll be here tomorrow, I’ll do a little followup review, FWIW, my primary use will be with Notability.

    I bought a new external hard drive and hooked it up to my iMac and downloaded this program. It is EXACTLY what I needed. It is still working on cloning the network attached USB drive, but once it is done, it will update with any new files on a weekly basis (although it will let you choose a shorter or longer time period if you desire). Thanks!

    I had one of the first pens for my original iPad (I think it was called Pogo, Pongo, or something like that) and I could never get used to the crayon sized fuzzball that I was supposed to write with. I am looking forward to your review to see if the tech has gotten better.

    Just pushed out our 3rd prototype release for our (company #3) iOS app (iPhone only initially). Pretty cool, got it talking to the backend, authenticating, caching some graphic assets, fun stuff!

    Two day brainstorming, market analysis, architecture breakdown, platform definition ... so awesome, also the CEO asked about additional development tools, I said “a 27 TB/cinema display”, he said, of course, order what you need

    Nice. I actually said no biggie, I’ll stick with what I’ve got right now, 3rd funding around coming up, plenty of cash-flow.

    Actually and old friend and business partner, I’m also a partner/shareholder, so it’s all good, when I feel like I really need one, I’ll score it.

    Using mostly open source tools to the infrastructure costs are _so_low_.

    Cool. Mine *should* be here today. The first order got lost in shipping (it was obvious something was up but I waited a couple of extra days). Refunded, re-ordered, and even the next day shipping for the 2nd one (Amazon Prime) has been refunded!

    Hey guys, so I'm having quite an internal debate with myself here. I messed up my macbook pro because I used too many disinfectant wipes. That caused some of the keys on the keyboard to go out permanently (this happened in October 2011). It was still working...flash forward to this year (in between march break and now) and now my macbook stops at the apple logo screen..it continually shows the loading bar but never gets to the login. So I decided to take it in and they're gonna call me back within 48 hours.


    They could replace the keyboard for $219 after taxes but they also mentioned that there is a possibility that the logic board is messed up as well. I googled what that is and my worst fears came true. Costly. It can be up to $1500 to replace it depending on the condition and the model of the laptop. I have a 2009 Macbook Pro 13" Plasma that I purchased in September. If it comes to nearly $1000 with all the repairs, should I just not bother with it and get a PC laptop instead that's way cheaper and offers a lot more?

    The reason I'm asking is because I start my first year of three in a film program this September and they're debating whether to get rid of Final Cut Pro and use Adobe Premiere Pro instead because Apple dropped the ball with FCP-X. Given that Adobe is compatible with both the PC and MAC, shouldn't I just buy a laptop instead?

    If so, what are the best media PC laptops out there that offer good CPU and RAM at a reasonable price? Or just whatever you think is good. Or should I succumb to the repair costs and keep the macbook pro?


    Thanks

    I wouldn't pay more than the cost of the keyboard for repair.

    As far as pc laptops go, it depends. Are you fine with a 15 inch machine? Or do you want another ~13 inch computer?

    As far as 15 inch computers are concerned, the HP elitebook 8570p, dell latitude E6520 or lenovo thinkpad T530 are good choices.

    As far as more portable machines are concerned there is the lenovo X230/X230 tablet.

    As far as ultrabook like computers, this looks promising:

    http://www.engadget.com/2012/04/25/a...ps-ivy-bridge/

    Though I think you will want to stick to more conventional laptops with standard voltage processors for your needs/uses.

    Thanks
    Apple didn't drop the ball on FCPX... idk why people keep saying that. Apple had to rewrite the entire program from scratch to take full advantage of new hardware. Their entire plan from the get go was to reintroduce the old features... as well as newer and more advanced features... as time goes on. It was designed to be more customizable and more powerful than ever. They explained this to everyone from the beginning and it got twisted a thousand different ways. With every new update there are more and more features, such as multi-cam support and supporting 4K resolution and the various cams that provide this resolution right now. In a year it should be a pretty hefty editor again. They're adding most of the features that people are asking them for and are very involved in making it as good as it can be.

    In regards to your laptop... that seriously sucks, dude. But it would be completely idiotic of you to pay $1500 to repair a 3 year old laptop when you can buy a brand new, ridiculously powerful one with all the bells and whistles for the same price.

    Be that as it may, you're not going to spend less than a thousand bucks for a laptop worthy of your media endeavors. Alienware packs a mean punch, so I'd recommend that as well as the laptops that were already suggested. I do not recommend the Zenbook as its GPU is **** in comparison with larger laptop GPUs.

    If you want another MacBook Pro, the new ones are coming out very soon, but the 15" models are the only ones with dedicated GPUs, and they start at $1799, which is insane.

    I think you should go Alienware if not Apple. They have ridiculous customization options.

    I googled them and I really like the Dell Latitude E6520 because of the extra protection. And I like the backlit keyboard feature. That's actually a must for me to have on the laptop in case I'm doing any work at night in low-lit areas. Even the media add-ons on the side like SD/card and USB 3.0 are great. Add in 6-8gb ram with at least 500gb HD space and I'm set. Thanks for suggestions.

    Edit: Alienware, gonna look them up. There's no way in hell I'm paying even close to $1000 for the repair if it comes to that much. Just not worth it because it makes my macbook pro pretty much junk.

    Alienware laptops have backlit keys as well... but you get to choose what color you want the lighting to be.

    You won't find more durable and reliable laptops than the latitude/elitebook/thinkpad.

    These are business class laptops, unlike the alienware which is a consumer grade laptop.

    The new Alienware laptops are very sturdy. I will say though they weren't always that way.
