What I always do is get to the Apple store for opening, most people with the first appointment don't turn up and you can take their slot. Worked everytime for me.

Bawse, there's a link kicking around that I had a while back where you could get Office for £6 all in. Not a monthly subscription. £6. That's it!
Totally legit, was an 'educational offer'
Will post in the GJ only forum if i find it and DM you mate

Does anyone know if you can hook up speakers wirelessly to a macbook pro? Bluetooth or Wifi.

Thanks

Got an IMAC with yosemite and i want to completely re-format the main hardrive (wipe clean). Never done this on a MAC before and Installed yosemite from online. Can anyone tell me how to do this as im not sure what will happen formatting it and not putting a disc in to load operating system!

Also struggling to work out how to separate my gmail account from the M.A.C as the mail is taking up nearly 80gb of my hardrive and im worried if I delete it, when i log in online it will also be gone!

Thanks in advance

I think when you re-format it, it will go back to its original OS, then you upgrade from there. In most cases the OS is on a separate partition of the hard drive and so you won't be deleting the default one. Don't have a clue about the gmail situation.

may just be being a retard, but how do I split screen on Mac.

Only previously done it with Scriviner (in which it is easy), but want to have a pdf and word document visible at the same time. It surely should be easy!

If you got el capitan there should be a green button next to the yellow and red in the top corner.

this is a really good mac desktop program for that. Similar to how windows locks programs to edges of screens etc.

Note on El Capitan you have to click and hold on the green button in the top left of the window. Also have to have more than one window open for it to work
