    Im thinking about buying a Mac Mini. I was going to opt for the non server version and get the 2.66ghz processor and the upgraded hard drive to 500GB.

    My question is, is it a worthwhile upgrade? or is it just better to leave it with the 2.4ghz and get a better hard drive.

    Regarding the hard drive, are you able to buy a faster one ie, one that runs at 7200rpm and put it in the mac mini yourself. I have heard that the drive in the Mac Mini is a slow hard drive.

    What is the biggest hard drive that will work in the Mac Mini?

    Many Thanks

    ...What's the point of a hold button if it isn't physical anyway??
    It could be a button such as the locking method on the 1gen shuffle...hold the play/pause button for 5 seconds or so...see the flashing led...locked. (I really don't like that lock method, but it is what it is).

    I like the idea of the air but I wouldn't touch one until they get a modern CPU in there. Core 2 Duo doesn't cut it in 2011.

    It does for those of us who want an extremely light and small laptop running OS X but don't care a fig for specs. I would contend that there are many such people.

    hey 100Teraflops glad your getting some good advice, the good monitor is a must for photography, check the dell 2209wa (i think it's still about) or the HP 2310i, both nice monitors, but the internal raid i have is a software raid 1 mirror, works well for my needs. Are you really sure you want to wait for the 'latest' Mac Pro? do you need the latest chipset? there are plenty of great deals on used machines, ideal for photography, save the $$$ on the MP and spend the rest on some quality Lenses, I know a photographer that uses a G5 with no problems :)

    remember as firestater states, raid is no back up plan, I use a raid 1 external system as it suits my needs.

    Buying an older machine has crossed my mind. I will checkout the monitors, as I am not very picky, at least not yet. Thanks for clarifying your RAID 1 setup, as I am finally grasping the concept of RAID let alone when combined with the Mac Pro.

    Also, I have not thought about a used Mac Pro from e-bay etc.., as an Apple refurb is nice, because I have a piece of mind with the warranty and I want to buy one-to-one in order to receive 'accredited' instruction pertaining to OS X, iLife, and all the included goodies. But you are right, I can save a lot of money and buy a camera, some glass, a case, and extra memroy cards on top of a Mac Pro. Food for thought!

    I have to contact Apple regarding one-to-one, because I need to know if I can add it after my purchase. I know the web-site says something similar to this: "...with the purchase of a new machine...," but Apple reps have been known to bend the rules. ;) I want a 6 core or 8 core, but I am still thinking that a quad core will suffice for my editing, photography, and software needs. The difference between the aforementioned machines is measured by seconds, for the most part. Did I just talk myself out of a 6 or 8 core? :) Ultimately, I have to decide before Thunderbolt is replaced by Lightningbolt! LOL

    I know it is an old way of doing it but it works effectively for me

    I go to and select music, then search by song or artist and it will pop up the artwork, simply save it to your iTunes Artwork and add it to your music.

    The one thing I absolutely can not stand is music in my itunes with no artwork, it drives me insane.

    After taking about a 3 hours nap, I've spent the last several hours working on my blog post of the iPhone 3G S launch at the Miami Beach Apple Store.

    This being Miami Beach, it wasn't your average launch...with police shoot outs, road blocks, drunk people stumbling by the line (and dancing), and of course Mr. Clucky.

    resolution independence is going to be a god send to web developers, no more crappy and inaccurate pixel/em sizes. now we'll be able to specify inches and picas hoorah!

    and vista will be supporting resolution independence through its WPF foundation layer. it won't be overnight � hell like CSS 2.1 it'll take years before it goes mainstream, but the web is going to be a much better place.

    as for JPEGs at 72 dpi vs resolution independence � beyond the scaling algorithms it's important to look at the increase in resolutions of monitors before going to crazy, 1920x1200 is about the maximum and average consumer is going to have, it's taken a few years from 1024x768 to get there though, three or four at least. i suspect we'll be at a max ratio of 2:1 or maybe 3:1 for quite some time. i don't think we're going to see a drastic need for hi-res images on the web or a plethora of "blurry" images for quite some time.

    Specifying sizes in mm and inches would have to be the worst way to do web design. I have good eyesight so i want my webpages to be small, my parents have worse eyesight so they like to scale everything larger, their solution at the moment is to decrease the screen resolution, this is very crude on an lcd. When resolution independence becomes standard they will be able to make everything larger while still maintaining the default resolution of their monitor, but if everyone designs webpages in mm or inches then the webpages wont become bigger, completely defeating the purpose.

    I don't really have an asking price, as I don't know what's a reasonable price. I know you have a 12" PowerBook. Trades? :D

    Hmm...I'm not exactly looking to trade my PB at the moment, but here's an example of what I sold my old iBook for, it was a 1.07ghz 12" with 512mb 40gb HD and combo drive, I got $800 for it, so I'd say that $1000+ would seem reasonable. Especially seeing as the HD is upgraded and (possibly) the RAM, and Superdrives do boost value, so anywhere from $1000-$1200 wouldn't seem unreasonable to me.

    (By the way, I'm not interested in buying it, just bought a 800mhz G3, just felt like helping you out a bit.)

    In answer to his other question, whether the backlit keyboard will make a re-appearance in the next MBA ... I would say the jury is out.

    Some are convinced there are technical reasons why the blk isn't in the current model, and those same reasons will prevent the inclusion of the blk in the next MBA.

    I, on the other hand, along with others, don't agree with that assumption, and think there's a decent chance the next MBA will in fact have a backlit keyboard.

    Nice twist Valdek! It's a shame there isn't a good short-hand for "million" (like "k" for 1,000) because all those zeroes, in yours and others' efforts, are a little distracting from a design POV.Yeah, I thought about using an m first, but decided to use the 0's nevertheless.

    just use the migration assistant either in the new account setup via firewire or do the transfer after the account is created on the new computer via ethernet (just make sure the username/short name is not the same on your old computer). you can then just delete the account on the iMac either in single user mode or by creating a new admin account and deleting it when logged in from there

    I hate how you have to download the entire OS every time there's a small update like this. 666MB for a few bug fixes... Also, what's up with the 666MB? Maybe we should stay away from this update guys lol.

    I know. It's insane... Hopefully with iOS 5 we will get some sort of patch system, like on OS X. Makes sense, really.

    Hi guys,

    I'm working on a project in Corona SDK (omg if you never used it its amazing! I can't tell you how much faster my projects been going since I switched from hand coding everything to using Corona.)

    Anyway I want to make my app universal but I can't seem to find way to load images specific to the iPad without having to scale them.

    For the iPhone 3Gs and the iPhone 4G Corona uses Apples model of @2x to load different resolution images, but is there a way to also do this for iPad?

    I know its a super long shot and this isn't the best forum to ask in but since I didn't buy Corona yet I don't have access to their forums.

    var browser=navigator.appName

    var version=parseFloat(b_version)
    if ((browser=="Safari"||browser=="Konqueror"||browser=="Microsoft Internet Explorer")
    && (version>=0)) {alert("Your browser environment is not fully supported!")}}

    Stick an alert in your code to test the return value of navigator.appName, or in your case the 'browser' variable... you should find this is actually "Netscape" for the Safari browser, hence your problem.

    check out the Safari FAQ (

    hope this helps!
