    Possible to replace MacBook Pro display with Retina display?

    I know this would completely void warranty, but is it possible to order a retina display lip for my 15" macbook pro and upgrade my current one?

    HDD "Orphaned Blocks"

    I've had the same issue with the stock 320GB hd that came with my MacBook Pro. The computer took longer to boot, longer to shut down, apps took longer to launch as well. Then I bought the Seagate Momentus XT drive to replace it. For the first 3 months, it was lightning fast. However, I've...

    SSD/HD Hybrid for Macbook Pro (need advice before buying)

    My hard drive (the stock 5400rpm 320GB) in the 15" MacBook Pro isn't able to handle the intense demands I put on it with music production. At first, I was considering buying a 256GB SSD, but I don't have the funds for it. I figure the next best option is getting a hybrid HD/SSD. I found one...

    File Arrangement Settings

    In my Downloads folder, how can I get the files to be sorted by date downloaded, and have them neatly arrange themselves onto a grid? Right now they overlap each other and it looks messy. I also only want this set for the Downloads folder alone.
