  I've put an SSD into my MacBook and am awaiting delivery of RAM upgrades for the same MacBook and two iMacs. One motivation: knowing that the newer Macs are even harder to open and upgrade. Ironically the fact that Apple is making newer models even harder to take apart is increasing my tendency to upgrade rather than buy a newer faster model and sell the older ones to less demanding users.
  If you can find one. I bought my 27" from a dealer just after a speed bump and it was a great deal.
Making it thinner is great, but is it still a massive disassembly job to change the hard drive? My 27" had to go in for the 1TB recall program and I would have been way happier if I Could have just popped the case myself and put in the replacement drive rather than have the service people insist on sending it in.
  This is a bit unfair. The point of a Swiss army knife is that the individual tools are generally quite good. Microsoft has produced a US army knife.
  I suppose you think anyone can speak Aramaic?
BB is huge in South Africa (unlike Apple) and their big outage was a massive PR disaster. Most other large-scale services have had the odd outage. Google has had a few as has Skype. Anything this big has to fall over occasionally. The big wonder is that it doesn't happen more often.
  Had they made some tiny numbers like 1,000 minis and most of the sales were the new big iPad, they wouldn't be rushing to make more.
  Good point. A few months back I tried to find Samsung numbers and couldn't. If they are out there, they aren't anywhere easy to find.
  It's better than Microsoft's report on the early sales of Surface. Seen that?
  Currently, yes. I just hope they don't forget that good UNIX compatibility is important for higher ed. I use Macs and Linux pretty much interchangeably, and Windows is a terrible choice if you want to do this, unless you're prepared tp run all your Linux stuff on a virtualizer.
