Yes, you really need one depending upon the Mac your working on:

1: A green or dark cloth to see the tiny screws and a method to catch dropped screws while working on a Mac, like a large flat tub.

2: A container with numerical labeled sub compartments (inside the tub with the Mac) to hold one screw which a list is maintained which screw goes exactly back where on the operated Mac as they look the same, but can vary on length, type and size and thread type. No extra screws available either.

3: A written list of how to disassemble and reassemble, because you certainly can't boot from the Mac and watch the video.

4: I think it's a #10 torx micro driver too, to really get into the guts of the machine. Which certainly would void your warranty/Apple Care. Not needed for the recent MacBooks of course, which the drive is accessible through the battery/RAM bay and a few screws, so it's a user serviceable part.

5: The correct size Phillips head micro screw driver needed, not forcing a blade of a knife or a wrong size screwdriver into those finely machines screws, stripping their heads.

6: Assorted magnifying glasses and magnetic pickup tools, tweezers and such for micro work.


Apple should make all their laptop drives user accessible. A little screwed on door and pull out the device, slide in a new one (or the old one, hehehe)

I've swapped my Macbook Pro 120GB stock hard drive for a nice 7200 320GB one. I managed it fine, and I'm a girl!

;o)

When they run out of cats they could use names of anything. They'll probably go extraterrestrial.

Or TODD. That name always seems to be picked for Sci-Fi.

They should use Constellations.

Yeah, that's essentially what I said. Extraterrestrial doesn't mean aliens. Aurora and all that. It's all just marketing.

I'll be damned if I can't figure out where the Quicktime Preferences went. I installed the legacy version as well but nothing in the System Preferences - except Flip4Mac has anything to do with Quicktime that I can find. Any clues?

I finally got my Snow Leopard! I got 40GB, (25GB plus 15GB trash files from MobileMe), QuickTime X is awesome that was worth the $29 alone considering QT 7 Pro cost $29. It is fast well as Safari is definitely fast with load up times. Mail is way faster than before. iTunes even though it's a 32-bit app is actually a little faster but we may see a 64-bit iTunes 9 on September 9th. Well as a 64-bit Aperture 3 should be releasing soon.









Go here to download the QuickTime trailer it's 720p @ 60FPS
