Sounds pretty much like my reaction when I "upgraded" from Snow Leopard to Lion... After a couple of days, I reinstalled SL.

Now I'm starting to doubt if I should make the jump from SL to ML......

'06 Macbook doesn't reach login screen

Hi,

I recently treated my old '06 plastic MacBook to a new battery so that I can use it as a travel machine, leaving my 17" MBP safely at home.

I had this notion in my head that perhaps video decoding, at least HD video, is done more efficiently (both...

All right, I'm doing this. This is just too cool, and my warranty just ran out. My Whitebook will soon have a blue Apple logo.

It's a matter of taste

Haha, you guys are insane. Why would you need anyone's advice on which color to get? If you like white, get the white. If you like black... well, get the black one.

Don't let the size of the...

MacBook display - dithered

I read a while ago about MacBook displays not really displaying 24 bits worth of color. That confirmed what I saw the very first time that I switched on my new MacBook; that there is indeed...

Question Setting the speed of the optical drive

is there any way to limit the speed of the optical drive in a MacBook? I want to lower the reading speed to limit battery drain, reduce noise, and reduce wear on the drive. I've done it in...

On the other hand, unlike all other laptops I've used, you can never hear the fan unless you're running something processor intensive.

How does the MacBook sense if the lid is closed? There doesn't seem to be a mechanical switch as on my last laptop.

Probably a magnetic sensor? Where are the magnets located, anyway?

When I hold my hand over the keyboard of my MacBook, I sense a nice, cold breeeze. :) Surely the machine sucks in air from the keyboard area, and dispels it through the vents in the back?
