    No worries. After all, even after 25 years there are a billion things I don't know about Macs, so I am indeed a nube on very many Mac subjects, as will be clear in many threads.

    I was just curious as to why Apple included cellular access in some iPads, but no laptops. Just curious, a little puzzle, that's all, nothing more.

    What is common sense about the idea that some iPad users would want to connect to the Net beyond wi-fi, but laptop users would not???

    My sense is that none of us, certainly including me, know why...

    Yes, because little of what is being said actually addresses the issue presented in the opening post.
    That's ok, no problem, let's just drop it and move on. I don't really care enough about it to...

    No, I'm not asking anything of the sort.



    Which is why I never expected my 2009 MacBook to have 12 hours of battery uptime, nor asked it to etc. You're trying to play the role of the Great...

    Can you perhaps explain more what this app does? The website for the app is pretty thin.

    Right now I have 1-2 hours with screen brightness all the way down to 1, which isn't so great outside. If I can get to 3-4 hours with a brighter screen, for reasonable fee less than $1500, I'll be...

    Which we have yet to answer. We don't really need to find an answer, I can easily live without one. But for the sake of theoretical inquiry, just saying, lots of good talk above, but no actual...

    Right, the thing is, even with a brand new battery the older MacBooks didn't have all day battery run time, or anything close. They were better though in the sense that it is super easy for users...

    Not the Amazon rainforest, the North Florida woods forest. :-) Yup, 12 hours a day is normal during hiking season. Get there at dawn, leave at dark. No outlets anywhere.

  15. Adding Battery Time To An Old Laptop?

    So I was planning on buying a new Macbook, but keyboard controversies are persuading me otherwise.

    I dunno, this issue is poring a lot of cold water on my plans to buy a MBA. I just have zero interest in spending over $1000 to get involved in problems like this. I guess I'm getting too old and...

    Right, I get that laptops don't have built-in cellular hardware (like some iPads).

    My question is... Why?

    It seems reasonable that some iPad users would want to connect beyond wi-fi. Why...

    Cellular Connections?

    I'm curious, or maybe confused, about this...

    Why can iPads make a cellular connection to the Net, but laptops can not?

    Do I have this right? If yes, what's the explanation?

    Is iCloud off by default? If I do nothing, can I ignore this feature?

    Or is iCloud on by default? If I don't want this feature, do I have to take action to deactivate it?

    Thank you!
