Due to an upgrade I am selling my MacBook Pro 17-inch matt screen, 2.66 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Memory 4GB, NVIDIA GeForce 9400M 256 MB, with OS X 10.8.2 Lion
also have the Speck black semi opaque hard cover as well as the Stucano alcantara sleeve.

The notebook has been in that Speck case from day one therefore it is immaculate, no scratches or dents.

PM me if interested. Thanks

Does the new Apple TV work with "HD Ready" TVs?

On the Apple site it says that an HDTV is a requirement.

I have a Panasonic TH37PX60 which has an HDMI port and is described as HD Ready. Am I right in presuming this will work with Apple TV?

It will work Andy, HD Ready = 720p while Full HD = 1080p.

i think the display connection has come loose/needs reconnecting, if i wiggle the screen it disappears, but any movement makes it reappear - ifixit guide requires a heat gun and suction cup to remove the glass on the screen (i.e. i'm not doing that).

this is no longer under warranty, is this something they can do in an apple store for little cost? i don't think it requires a new part.

Have you not restarted the computer in a while, and how old are the comp? If its old, not to much ram, and your working it hard it might be swap files, which goes away if you restart it. If not, get a torrent with an application called whatsize to see what you have on that clogging the harddrive,

Does ordering from the Education Store when not a student still work ok, anyone done it recently?

Looking at getting a MacBook Air and on the Education Store it's still £106 cheaper than with buying at "full price" with today's £81 discount.

Should be fine, I've had a few orders and never had any problems. You also get a 3 year warranty as standard when ordering from the Education Store.

I think it is worth getting. The current benefits appear to be limited - although obviously it allows you to run more programs at the same time without decreasing performance - but since the RAM can't be upgraded later on a MacBook Air getting 8GB now futureproofs you to an extent, as programs become ever more RAM-hungry.

Anyone else use Windows on a MacBook Air? I am using Windows 7 through Bootcamp and the machine keeps powering off after about 30 mins of continued use (mostly just web browsing and torrent dowloads), I assume it's because it's overheating - but seeing as I am not really doing anything processor heavy it shouldn't be problem? It's getting bloody annoying - anyone else had the same problem and know of a fix? Took it to Apple Store here and they told me that they ran checks on it and couldn't find anything wrong with it.

I asked if they could replace it and they told me that because I was using Firefox as my browser and not Safari that they didn't support it and therefore it was not 'their' fault. Cunts! I am gonna go back and push a little harder as I was in a rush when I picked it up.

Just wondered if anyone else had experienced similar problems?
