Often when it comes to hardware problems, the people with the problems concentrate in one area online to complain. Apple sells over 1 million laptops every month so if you read even 100 reports of problems with the displays, you'd never know how widespread it was. I wouldn't worry about getting a bad machine, if you happen to be one with a defect, Apple will replace it for you. The new models are out now so 16GB RAM is in the entry model and they've dropped the prices on...
You can use Migration Assistant in your /Applications/Utilities folder. It helps if you haven't created an account on the 27" with the same name as the old one as it will try to move the old account over. You'd connect the two machine with a suitable cable as described here:http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4413Newer versions of the OS are supposed to find the right driver online as soon as you connect the printer. If that doesn't work, try installing the drivers for the...

Can you try different footage for the picture in picture to make sure it's...
I wouldn't recommend 128GB but it depends on what you use Windows for. If it's for gaming, I'd suggest 70GB minimum now because modern games are maxing out at just under 50GB and a bare Windows OS uses up 15GB. If it's just for average software, you'd probably get away with 50GB.Apple also has a refurb part to their store that has better prices:http://store.apple.com/au/browse/home/specialdeals/macIf you were looking at the A$1599 model, you can get one with 512GB for...
Buybacks are meant to be good for shareholders but your 'savings' and 'gains' are still based on a volatile stock price that is determined by traders. If traders next year decide they are bored with what Apple's doing, they can lower the price as they see fit and wipe out all of these gains. This is why it's not a good plan to trade all of Apple's assets for this volatile valuation (unless the assets are invested in something more volatile of course but they make a point...
They top out at 1TB just now. Samsung recently brought out an SSD drive using 3D NAND (special glasses not required):http://www.extremetech.com/computing/185671-samsungs-850-pro-is-the-first-consumer-ssd-to-use-3d-nandhttp://www.samsung.com/global/business/semiconductor/minisite/Greenmemory/news-event/in-the-news/detail?contentsSeq=13227&contsClassCd=GApple uses Samsung's NAND in the Mac Pro. Samsung also has SSDs that go up to 3GB/s. The 3D NAND hasn't arrived at a lower...
Same reason I'd care if they used a floppy drive, VGA port or a PS/2 port. It's legacy baggage that needs to go. The more that people use legacy tech, the more people put pressure on vendors to support it and it's wasteful of their time and compromises their hardware design and price. Removing unnecessary components allows them to allocate that budget elsewhere so they can improve the more important essential aspects like the display, internal storage and RAM.Thunderbolt...
TB2 is the minimum for 4K display output. Some people are buying 4K displays. The lower sized ones are more affordable:http://www.amazon.com/Dell-Computer-UltraSharp-UP2414Q-23-8-Inch/dp/B00HALPPM0HP's marketing page is funny. They have quotes like:"Our Mac was taking twelve hours to render one of these like, ten second little graphics, and with our new Z Workstation, the first one we did, it rendered in two hours – at full...
They all have PCIe SSDs:https://www.apple.com/macbook-pro/specs-retina/
The live document is here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5634 and the cached version is here: http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5634 It's nice that they are continuing to support Windows 7 64-bit so people don't have to deal with Windows 8. The two unannounced models are Mac Mini and 27" iMac both noted as mid 2014. I doubt it's a typo given that both those models were changed. The MBP box still hasn't been updated in...
