  • 1. when is next processor upgrade for MacBook Pro?
    It is time to upgrade my G4 PowerBook -firewire 800. I am on my 3rd motherboard and my AppleCare just ran out. My question is: how many times per year does Apple upgrade the processor speed and other basic component specs of the top of the line $2500 15" MacBook Pro? Obviously, they do it in JAN and in OCT for the Christmas market. Do they also do it in mid-year, e.g., JUNE? I can wait till June but not until October. Grateful for your shared knowledge. Can't get a straight answer from my Apple re-seller (The Brown U. Computer Store). TIA John
  • 2. new ipod shuffle help?
    I hope this is the correct group, I apologize if it is not. My daughter just recieved a new small clip type shuffle. We have an older g3 mac 500 mgz running 10.2.8. The itunes will not recognize the new shuffle. I have tried to look at the apple site and it shows I have to have 10.3.9 on this machine to run the version of itunes needed for this shuffle. Is this correct ? Is there any way for me to do this on this old machine ? Is there a way around this ? Thanks in advance any help would be appreciated.

I wonder if I could use that to get out of work. Julius Caesar ignored just such a warning. If he'd just stayed home he might have just ended up as another politician and general in the Roman republic--albeit a very successful one--and we'd be scratching our heads trying to remember which one he was.

  • 4. software update clobbers airport
    This is the most exasperating part of owning a Mac laptop (with 10.3.9 software using certain security settings). You download a regular update offered by Apple, then it prompts you to reboot. Do that and your airport is dead. No amount of turning airport off and on helps. Reboot again and again... and finally you notice a half second appearence of some further prompted query. You will only notice it at all if you have a clean screen, like no safari etc to occlude it. Well, reboot umpteen times so you can read the prompt enough to see which button means what, and try to click yes to something like "add airport to keychain blah blah blah"... and finally a reboot has things working. Is there an easier way to bring up this prompt - cannot find a way in system preferences?

Replacement for noisy G4 Powerbook fan?

I bought a 15" Powerbook G4 (1.67GHz, Superdrive) a little over a year
ago, which probably means that my warranty has expired, which in turn
means that I can do anything with my machine ;-)

One slight (sometimes more than slight if I run "heavy" tasks for
extended periods of time) is the (IMHO) rather noisy cooling fan inside
the computer.
I'm sure Apple didn't pick the quietest fan around (more likely they
picked the one they could get the best deal on), so I'm wondering if
there are better replacements available with the same size, voltage,
effect etc?

Well, it says "Used, fully tested" which to me indicates that these are
original fans from otherwise broken Powerbooks.
My fan works perfectly well, but if there are better replacements out
there that don't make as much noise I would like to replace it.

4.Powerbook G4 Ti hard drive replacement

Think my hard drive is done. :-(

Is there a "best" drive manufacturer and is there a preferred size for 
this model (PB Ti G4 1GHz)? On one site, some of the drives are called 
"super slim" so didn't know if there was more than one size that fit 
this model.

Thanks for any info.

5.PowerBook G4 hard drive (& possibly more) replacement?

 My (new to me) 1.33 GHz 15" G4 stared to buzz intermittently, more so
if I move it while it is running.  I imagine this is a warning sign
that the hard drive is getting ready to fail.

The current drive is a 55.89 GB TOSHIBA MK6025GAS. The G4 has 2GB ram,
and seems to run a little hot (by touch; aluminum is a good
conductor).  Should I stick with a 5400 rpm drive, or can go with a
7200 rpm without actually overheating? Any suggestions about a good
candidate for replacement?  SSDs are still too pricey.

The optical drive is a MATSHITACD-RW  CW-8123. Seems to work fine for
reading CDs.  As long as I have the G4 opened up, I could upgrade the
optical drive as well.  Again, suggestions for a good  replacement
candidate will be much appreciated.h

While I have the case opened, are there any other upgrades or hacks I
might consider?

Thanks,
Larry
