    How in the world do I get Pages in iWork to do this simple formula?

    I cannot seem to figure out how to do this in Pages. I have a table. I want to take a number (hours) and multiply it by an amount ($20) which doesn't have a column and insert the total in another column. Can anybody tell me how to do this? When I click in the cell, then go to Formula, I click...

    Bump (figured it's worth another shot ;-))

    2009 Mac Mini or a 2006 Mac Pro?

    If I were you, I would definitely go with the MacPro even though it's a few years older. I have the same one (bought new in Feb 07). I had several drives installed and 7 GBs of RAM, which wasn't too bad, but whenever I had to run Photoshop, Illustrator, Parallels and lots of other apps together...

    Hardware needed to connect dual 27" Cinema Displays to a 2007 MacPro?

    I've been using my 20" dual cinema displays for 4+ years and really like them. I know Apple's displays are insanely expensive compared to others, but as much as I use them (anywhere from 50-80 hours/week just for work) I don't mind spending the extra money. I was just wondering what the best...

    Which UPS for a MacPro with dual monitors?

    That looks like a much better (and cheaper) alternative to the APC. I just wonder if it would be enough for the Mac Pro AND two 27" Cinema Displays (even with turning down the displays).

    Best way to set up backup drive for data?

    I just bought two 2 TB Hitachi's. One I will use for all of my data and the other one for backup. (my main drive is an SSD) Can someone suggest the best solution as to how to configure the backup drive? Should I set it up RAID-1 so it will always mirror the other drive? Or, should I set it up...

    Which UPS for a MacPro with dual monitors?

    My 8+ year old APC UPS has finally gone kaput after running it with two replacement batteries. Can someone suggest what the best UPS brand/model would be to get for use with a MacPro with dual 27" cinema displays along with an Airport Extreme? Time isn't a huge issue -- something like 5 - 10...

    Hardware needed to connect dual 27" Cinema Displays to a 2007 MacPro?

    I have a 2007 MacPro and am going to get two 27" Cinema Displays. Since the new displays use mini displayports, they won't connect to my current graphics card. What would be the best (while at the same time, considering price) route to go? Do I need to buy Apple ATI Radeon 5770 @ around $250...

    Ideas for covering the metal parts or allergy proofing a MacBook Pro?

    Another option would be to get one of the old white or black [plastic] MacBooks (from about 3 years ago). I used one for 3 years and although it wasn't as powerful as MBPs, I don't really have any complaints.

    Adding an SSD Drive to a MacBook Pro?

    I have a MacBook Pro that I purchased new in Feb 2010. Do I need to buy any additional parts besides the solid-state hard drive to replace the hard-disk drive? Will it simply go in the place where the old hard drive was or do I need to install it where my optical drive is? Can anyone...

    Anyone know if local Apple stores sell Macs with upgraded RAM?

    Yeah -- I didn't realize before the RAM in the Air's were not upgradable. ;)

    Anyone know if local Apple stores sell Macs with upgraded RAM?

    Only problem with that is the MacBook Air's do not have upgradable RAM, which I'm sure you know, so I'd have to do the upgrade with them.

    Anyone know if local Apple stores sell Macs with upgraded RAM?

    I know local Apple stores usually just sell the base model computers. Does anyone know if I could buy a MacBook from a store with more RAM than the base model or would I have to order this online from their website? You'd think since it's such an easy thing to do, that this would be possible...
