and of cause mac writes and reads its own format which is HFS+ journal or without journal.

ic.. thanks !!!

I would like to get a MBP, 15 inch, 2.66Ghz.

There is an option to upgrade the processor to 2.93GHz at the cost of $481.50.

Is this upgrade in processor speed worth the price?

Besides the usual word processing, surfing and watching videos, I will be using the MBP for gaming and game development.

Otherwise, you will be better off spending the $500 on upgrading the rams to 4gb and buying applecare. By then, you should still have about $150 left to buy accessories like laptop sleeve or whatever protector you want. And if you know where to get the best deals, you could even get yourself a cup of coffee at the end of the day! :D

Well again, it's just my 2c worth. ;)

Thanks bro, I have gotten my macbook already, and did as u said. Got the 2.0ghz one with a 4gb upgrade. Also got a free keyboard protector and a laptop sleeve. Is there any other accessories that you would recommend for the macbook?

Thanks! =)

Cool! Just get whatever you will need. And remember to get AppleCare!

Just a suggestion, if the macbook is going to be your primary computer, perhaps you can get an external hdd to backup your data or hook it up to an external monitor+keyboard+mouse and use it like a desktop.

At the end of day, just make sure you're able to justify your purchases, and of course, enjoy your mac!

Thanks man. I already have a PC at home actually. So most of my stuff's all backed up. Might get a 2.5" HDD for more portability though.

Cheers

SGL Marketing ? Went there this morning, very friendly lady boss. But it seems the DDR3 rams increase to $80 each for 2GB.

Hi guys got another question here. It's about shutting down. The guy at the shop recommended me not to use the Shut Down button on the top right corner of the keyboard. May i know why is that so? He said that it was better to click on the apple logo on the desktop and select Shut Down.

Is he correct?

Which shop is this? Either way you shutdown through the OS what. E.g. you click the apple icon>shut down and you press the button you still have to click shut down from the options dialog.

Please let me know who offered you this piece of "advice" so I can avoid him.

elusified 25-04-2009 05:25 PM

hey guys, beside SLS, any neighbourhood shopping centers have shops providing the service of screen protector for macbook?
