Thanks for the reply Nick. Is there a test I can do to determine if I get 7 hours? Personally, I never timed my Mac, but it just seems that the battery drops faster than when I had Lion.

I upgraded to Mountain Lion about 3 weeks ago and purchased my MacBook Pro 13" two months ago. I noticed, since upgrading from Lion, my battery life just isn't as good. Is this normal? (I...

I have only downloaded this skateboard app recently (as of yesterday) and I don't think it could be a problem. Everything else is the same.

iTunes Opens on its own

Hello,

I have OSX Mountain Lion 10.8.1 and the problem I am experiencing is that iTunes will open on its own. When I start my Mac, about 30-40 seconds later it will open, and I can close it and it...

You can't. If you fill out the form again the system will recognize the serial number has already been activated with a Mountain Lion code. Apple isn't that stupid.

No, I didn't have to scan in a receipt at all. The serial number was the only thing they really needed for proof of purchase. They can check it with the records at their store too.

I've looked at that. However, I need this Ipad 2 for 4 years. Who knows, maybe Iwork or Pages will someday be 32GB. :Cool:

Yes, that is exactly what I am doing. (MacBook Pro and 64GB Ipad). I recommend looking at what size you need. If you plan on keeping it for 4 years, then get the 32gb or 64gb. Pageburst is a nice app...

What Ipad 2 Size would you recommend?

I am ready to get my Ipad soon. But I can't seem to decide between the three options. I really don't want to pay for GB's that I will never use. All are reasonably within my budget, but there is no...

I see, why not get a 15" MacBook Pro and then an Ipad 2 on the side or perhaps an Air? Plus, you won't be able to play games that well at all on a Mac Mini or Air. Crysis will run at about medium...

Thats probably true, but I really hope it isn't one of those things that are, "been there, done that". Its way to expensive to take home and try for a month and if I don't like it, I can't return it.
