Is there any available themes for iMovie? I searched a bit and found some stuff for iDVD. The stock ones are ok. Just looking for more options.

I look at it as insurance. You most likely will not need it but what will the cost be if you don't have it vs the cost of having it. Like a car you don't need a full warranty but you may wish you...

I got my new MBP in today. YAY! So far I am happy with my purchase. One thing is bugging me though. I have the tracking speed maxed and it is still slow. I bought a magic mouse to and it is also...

I think I read somewhere that it is not necessarily using that ram ( the OS ) but is reserving it, but don't quote me on it. I'll try and find the source. Certain processes will use a different...

Maybe a stupid question but does it have a dvd drive? Out of your system specs it is the only requirement I didn't see listed.

No more procrastinating

I decided it was time to say goodbye to PCs. For years I have been a fan of them, but no longer. There really isn't a reason for me to stay. I do not play games on computers and even if I wanted I...
