Sure, cwa, I don't mind. I hope this isn't necromancing or retroposting or whatever you call it, since this thread is less than two weeks old, but feel free to correct me if so.

Don't mess around with Hackintosh. You might be able to install Lion on one of those laptops but, take it from me, it's not worth the headaches. It's almost impossible to find a machine which is...

Which MacBook should I buy?

I'm intending to treat myself to a new MacBook for Christmas! Based on my <$1000 budget, I've narrowed it down to either a 2010 MacBook Pro for ~$800, or a refurbished 2011 MacBook Pro for $929. (I...

You may be right. However, I'm currently running a Mini with Snow Leopard and 1 GB of RAM, and my only issue with it has been some lag while multitasking. 4GB would be a really major step up for me....

Nope, I was thinking about an Apple-refurbished MacBook Air or MacBook Pro. The cheapest option of each is $799 and $929, respectively. I was leaning in the direction of the Pro myself, mainly for...

Trading up to a MacBook?

I bought myself an iPad 2 about six months ago. I vowed that I would never do it, but I knew a few people who'd gotten one and I fell for the Apple magic. Obviously, because I'm a starving student...

Exactly! It's not just a $29 upgrade. For me, it would require buying extra RAM, as well as iWork '09, iLife '11, and Photoshop 10, just to meet Lion's minimum requirements and to continue doing what...

Tap Defence is an old favourite of mine. You have to defend the gates of Heaven from ****'s marauding hordes. It's pretty basic, but the graphics are fun, the premise is cool, and you can't beat...

iCloud on Snow Leopard: any workarounds yet?

It seems so ridiculous to me that Apple would release an iCloud syncing option for Windows before they make it even remotely compatible with Snow Leopard! The iCloud.com uploading/downloading system...

Mac Mini graphics upgrade

I know it's not technically possible, as the graphics chipset is soldered onto the main board and there are no expansion slots. However, I've been hearing some buzz lately about an external graphics...

It really is a personal choice. I use Time Machine for the simplicity and "forget it" factor - I literally have not touched it since the day I set up my Mac, but I see the little icon spinning every...

Heh, sorry! As I said, I've been awake for 40 hours and counting. The issue is all fixed now, and I've learned my lesson regarding MacDrive. Eeeevil!

If, like me, you just have a Mac and an iDevice, then I don't think there's much point to iCloud. I set it up anyway on my iPad, but it's not even compatible with Snow Leopard, so I turned off pretty...
