    Encryption

    I have wasted hours and hours and HOURS trying to get encrypted email working on my iPhone. After a YEAR, I have finally managed it. It actually works!!!!!!!

  3. battery life - ridiculous

    According to Coconut Battery, the battery capacity is down to 91% on my 5 week old MBP13" (non-retina). I get about 3 hours out of it.

    Just ridiculous.

    Well, one day, you will grow up, and such things will no longer bother you. In the meantime, smash your iBook with a hammer and completely destroy it. Perhaps it will teach you some gratitude for the...

    Your best solution is to send it to Tech Restore and have them replace the screen with a matte screen. Cost is $200 plus shipping. Do it, do it now, you will love the results. I did this with my...

    You will be fine. It doesn't HURT anything. There is a theoretical minor performance enhancement to using 2 modules, but unless you are engaging in activities where you need to extract absolutely,...

    It's the only laptop I would buy from Apple for myself....

    Except smaller, more usable as a laptop, and the lid does not flop close when held at a steep angle.

    I don't hate it. I bought an 11"...

    I second this opinion, for the same reasons.

    I bought my MBP 13" in July, knowing full well they would come out with a Retina version before the end of the year. I had already made up my mind...

    I would start by erasing the hard drive and doing a clean install. Then I would max out the memory.

    I have a mid-2012 MBP 13" with OWC 480GB SSD in the hard drive bay and the stock hard drive in an OWC data doubler in the optical bay. Total install job, including 16GB of memory, was about 20...

    Upgrading memory is CHEAP!!! No reason not to stuff 16GB in it right away. It's down to only $110!!

    No.

    FWIW, I bought the mid-2012 15" and returned it to get the 13". Much better machine, esp. for the money.

    I dunno, but my 2012 13" has 149 cycles with 93% design capacity remaining, and the battery has NEVER lasted more than 4 hours - if that helps you any. I've only been using it for 6 months too.

    I have 16GB. It was so cheap I can't imagine why anyone would NOT have it.

    Current memory use, while sitting here not doing much of anything, is 6GB....

    I have this exact setup - with an OWC 480GB SSD in the hard drive bay, and the stock hard drive is in an OWC Data Doubler, in the optical bay. I also have 16GB of RAM. Highly Recommend.

    If you don't care about any of the data on your computer, then leave it off.

    It's not a "user serviceable part" as far as Apple is concerned, so it is unlikely you will find one available to you as the general public, but I'm sure if you call a dealer, they can replace it for...

    You didn't mention the 13" (rather than the 15"), but it is MUCH more comfortable of a machine than the 15" - and if you need more screen space, you can always add a 27" monitor and still have a lot...

    Yes it is. You can upgrade it to an SSD no problem. In fact, I did such an operation on mine - and replaced the optical drive with the stock hard drive as well.

    Not for someone buying a Nikon D800.

    If I were that user. I would seriously consider the merits of putting not one, but TWO 480GB 6G Mercury Ultra Pro SSDs in my laptop.

    Non-retina is a way better deal.

    Also, I serious encourage you to seriously question the need for an optical drive.

    FWIW, I bought a new non-retina machine, and before I even turned it on, I...
