Sleep mode is fine, that's not really an issue.

The main rules of thumb to make sure your battery lasts for a long time (holds a full charge for a long time) is to
  • Use up most of the battery before recharging (i.e. use laptop until battery is around 10-15%, then fully charge
  • Try to avoid using the laptop with A/C power plugged in for hours on end
  • Once a month, use the entire battery charge up and then do a full recharge (cycle the battery)

These are general rules for giving a rechargeable battery a long life and apply to cellphones, tablets, laptops, etc.

it takes all sorts I guess

Steve Jobs's Apple legacy may not be so sweet at the core

no new arguments here, but it makes for interesting reading nonetheless

I just picked up one of the 13" Macbook Pros (decided to drop another 4 gigs of ram into it for a total of 8 gb)

Pretty swanky I have to say. Time to DJ some house parties.

Nice.

I think I'm skipping the MacBook Air until next year, although I'll probably go get an iPad in the next week.

I don't need it, but I should be aware of its capabilities for work.
(Yup, that's the line I'm going with.)

Look into getting a free, 2GB Dropbox account for sharing files between all those devices. I run a Windows 7 desktop, the Macbook Pro, and an iPad and iPhone and have my important files accessible on each.

a new macbook pro will be joining the family soon. it isn't mine though, ian's laptop is being lame and it's looking like it'll make more sense to replace rather than repair his.

plus my mom admitted to me that she's considering switching to mac, which is a huge deal because in the past she's complained about using my imac.

I'm really impressed with the build quality of the most recent Macbook Pros. The chassis feels as solid as fuck, and I like the fact that the usually vulnerable laptop hinge is one big single one in the centre of the machine. It makes a big difference for me.

Lenovo makes great business-class laptops but they feel plastic-y and fragile to me now, despite their great reputation. The only thing that comes close in terms of build quality currently are the Sony VIAOs and higher-end Dell XPS,

Really, really happy with the new MBP. It's the best Windows 7 laptop ever

I've been DLing magazine and construction related apps like crazy on the new iPad.
Some are so totally worthless, but some are pretty awesome. A few companies' specifying apps are really cool.



(I feel so modern.)

Do you run Bootcamp or Parallels?

Bootcamp is fine for my needs. I use a suite of a couple Windows applications to do web design work so I can just choose which OS to load when I turn on the Mac.

Parallels is more for running a specific Windows application while you're in your normal Mac OSX desktop. Pretty cool stuff, and they're about to come out with a new release (7) that looks good.

Has anyone DL'd these bonus entertainment-type apps for the iPad?

App Store - Sons of Anarchy

This one is for Sons Of Anarchy and sounds like it has stuff that would be bonus material on a DVD. Seems like it could be a bargain at 99 cents, but OMG how many shows could I do this for?!?!


ETA-sorry, maybe I should look in the App thread.

Speaking of iTunes and new apps... Does anyone have any new sources for discounted iTunes cards?

Target and Best Buy had them earlier this summer, but nothing lately. I'd love some discounts to subscribe to all of the TV shows returning this Fall.
And, I think Apple products/cards are completely gone from Costco.
