The big deal with my job is that I need to be able to download certain files form the internet and get them on my customer's computers for upgrades. I can Wifi tether to my computer to do it, but that cost an extra $25.00 / month and it is a little more annoying. My step father and sister have the HTC thunderbolt and it seem to last all day on a single charge. I think the battery issues have been greately over stated ( Like the antenna issue on the iPhone 4) I also...
This makes sense. Everyone thought that there would be a new model in June so many delayed their purchase, when that did not happen most decide to wait for the new phone since they had already waited this long.... Since the rumors seem to be point to the fact that the new iPhone will not be 4G, I will probably wait and get a new Android phone. ( I live in a good 4G city with Verizon ). I would like to get an iPhone, but it is still missing a few key features that I use...
Verizon's new pricing will probably put a hurting on all of it's smart phone sales....... AT&T will be significantly less expensive with more options.... Verizon's only advantage is that is covers far more of the country with 3G than AT&T....... About 1/3rd of my Sales territory has no AT&T 3G... It is nearly 100% covered by Verizon...
I wonder how well the base Mini's graphics speed compare to the Nivida in the outgoing model? The Intel Graphics chips have never impressed me much..... I have the latest MBP 13" with the 2.7Ghz i7 processor. The system is very fast, but the integrated Intel Graphics chips really hamper the video performance. My old 2.66Mhz Core Duo with the Nivida GT enabled can easy out pace it when running graphics intensive applications... Maybe that have gotten better lately....
If they had not ditched the DVD Drive I would get one. I use a 2.0Ghz Mini in a Home entertainment center and still have a larger DVD movie library ( And do not want spend countless hours ripping all of the movies ). I wanted to upgrade the Mini in the entertainment center and use the old one as a small Web/FTP server. I know that I could add the external super drive, but that would be one more thing cluttering up my system. In fact that is why I got the 2.0Ghz mini...
I agree.... I wanted 8gb of RAM.... More or less needed in 64 bit OS's these days....
I tought I would add an update.... 1) I fixed the HP Photosmart Premium C310 printer problem. I had to remove all of the software and drivers from the machine and re-install. That seem to clear up the "cannot connect to printer" problem.... I managed to connect to my WD Worldbook II NAS by deleting all key chains and doing a Connect to Server in finder and and entering SMB://"NETWORK NAME OF YOUR NAS"... Thanks God this thing supports the SMB protocol....
!!!! WARNING !!! Two Major problems with Lion and one annoyance: 1) Not compatible wth most NAS drives. Apple added a new APF but did not include backwards compatibility.... ( This is going to be a huge problem ) Apples position is talk your NAS manufacturer into updating their firmware...( Like that is going to happen ) 2) Many Wireless printers are not going to work due to problem #1. My brand new HP Photosmart C310 WILL NOT WORK with Lion. 3) Why in the world...
I am not a fan of losing the Optical Drive. I wanted to upgrade my 2.0Ghz mini with a new on in my entertainment center. ( The old Mini will become a WEB/FTP server ). I still watch a lot of DVD's on the Mini connected to the TV. ( Got Rid of the bulky CD player ) I do not want a super drive adding clutter..... I know a lot of people use these in entertainment centers, I am not sure that not having a Optical drive is a good thing.... I order a 2.66Mhz from the...
I downloaded it this mourning on my MPB 15 and it trashed the hardrive on install. I had to do a clean install and re-format..... Thank god I put all of my files on a NAS drive for safe keeping.... I'll have to re-load VMWare and MS Office, but it won't be that painful.... I have two Mac Minis and one 13" MBP to go.... ( A little more worried ) This was the first Apple update to ever give me trouble......
