128 MB video ram on a macbook pro - enough to drive the new 30"?

128 MB video ram on a macbook pro - enough to drive the new 30"?
meaning, can it do this well???

Even 16 MB VRAM would be enough to display a 2D picture on the 30".
Depending on 3D usage you need much VRAM.
Unless you are using a lot of the latest 3D games or Apples 3D pro apps (Motion/Shake or something like that) 128 MB should be fine.

  • If i buy a macbook pro 2 months before the new operating system comes is released, can i get it for free?

    If i buy a macbook pro 2 months before the new operating system comes is released, can i get it for free?

    Generally once Apple gives the official release date, then Macs have become available for up to date pricing.  As long as just the season has been stated, there is no guarantee that Macs purchased during the season in question will get up to date pricing.  So watch http://www.apple.com/osx/uptodate/ or http://www.apple.com/macosx/uptodate/ the day that the release date is announced.   Past performance is no guarantee of future returns.  Thankfully since 10.7's release Apple's full fledged releases have only been $20 USD, and updates are free to the full fledged release.  I.e. 10.7.1 to 10.7.5 are updates to 10.7.
    10.8.1 to 10.8.4 are updates to 10.8.  It was only with 10.6 and earlier the distribution for each full release was at least $99 and up to date were around $20 going back to 10.2.  10.6 is though available on the Apple Store for only $20.    

  • Any idea when the MacBook Pro will come with the new OSX Lion?

    Does anyone have a clue as to when the MacBook Pro will come installed with the new OSX Lion?  In the market for a new Mac laptop but would prefer waiting for the Pro to come with the new system alreayd installed.

    If you order on-line it will ship with Lion.
    Local retail stores vary according to their inventory, more than likely the have Lion ready MBP.  Call and ask.

  • Is my apple MacBook Pro laptop compatible with the new Creative Suite 6 program??

    I own a Apple MacBook Pro laptop i currently have the operating system Mac OS X Lion 10.7.5.
    my laptop is 13 inch laptop not a 15 inch.
    Here is the following info about my apple computer below:
    Processor  2.5 GHz Intel Core i5
    Memory  4 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
    Graphics  Intel HD Graphics 4000 384 MB
    Software  Mac OS X Lion 10.7.5 (11G63)
    I want to make sure that the new Creative Suite 6 program is compatiable with my apple
    computer before i buy it. my mother last year had brought me the creative suite 5 program
    for my Dell Desktop computer however, this computer later on crashed and now i am stuck with
    the CS5 program my mother brought because, this version of this program she brought is
    only for a desktop computer that has a windows operating system not for a apple
    computer that has a mac operating system. At the time my mother nor i knew if, i
    would be getting a new apple computer plus, i needed the program for school so that i
    could work on homework assignments at home. Now i am currently stuck with the
    windows version of the CS5 program which i cannot use at all. I tried to install it onto
    my apple laptop many times before but, i only ended up getting a error message saying
    that the software I had wouldn't install to the computer for some reason unexplained.

  • How do I find out how much space I have left on my macbook pro? I downloaded the new mavericks operating system and can't figure it out. Before the space would be at the bottom of my finder.

    I downloaded the new mavericks operating system on my macbook pro and I can't find out how much space I have left. Before the installation of mavericks, storage space left was displayed at the bottom of the Finder window.

    In the Finder, under the View menu there is an option to Show Status Bar.  Select that and you will see the info on the bottom of folders again.

  • Bought a new macbook pro, synced phone with the new computer and now cant get transferred music onto my phone

    I recently bought a new macbook pro to replace my 2007 macbook.  I transferred my music from the old macbook to the new macbook pro.  Today i updated my iphone4 to ios5 (on the new macbook pro), and in doing so, deleted my library off of my phone.  The problem is, when I try to put the music i previously transferred onto the new computer, to my iphone, it wont let me transfer anything.  Any ideas why this might be happening?

    The standard policy is 14 days return no questions asked.
    The Original Poster got someone on the phone who knew how to "play" the system to get around that and squirt out a gift card "for customer satisfaction". The person you talked to was less familiar with how to play the system, so simply restated the standard company policy.
    If you really did buy it 14 days ago today, take it all back to the store and politely insist that you get the gift card you feel are entitled to. Exactly how they process that transaction, and whether you leave with the same computer you brought in, is their problem.

  • My Macbook Pro I guess downloaded the new update while I was asleep and now this black screen that is speaking won't go away.

    While I was asleep I believe my Macbook Pro downloaded some new software, I turned it on this morning and now I have this black screen with letter inside of it that says whatever is inside of it to me. It is very annoying as if I am online it will describe everything to me and move my screen. I am a student and cannot work or research when my computer does this. Can someone please help me figure out how to get rid of this?

    to disable VoiceOver, press "command+F5".

  • Should i buy a 17inch Macbook Pro 2011 model or the new Macbook pro 15 inch with retina display?

    Im wondering which one i should buy.
    im selling my iMac for it.
    They both are really nice laptops, and are around the same price.
    I just dont know which one to buy.
    if i buy the 17 inch i get the DVD Drive, all the additional ports, and a bigger screen.
    if i buy retina i get the 15 inch retina display(smaller screen), thiiner body, 75% less glare and more.
    What do you think? which one would you buy?

    Well, I am a smallish, sixty-something woman, and I've never found my 17" MBP (2008) too heavy to haul around.  I got rid of my desk-top when I got this 17 incher, thinking I would eventually get a monitor for the large screen.  Well, it has been 4 and a half years and I haven't found a need for the monitor yet. 
    I do a lot of photography, the kind with serious editing, so my hi-res non--glare screen is a must, as is the larger screen. 
    If I hauled this thing with me everywhere I went, it would be cumbersome, but that's what my ipad is for.  The 17" MBP has been my dream machine, I just hope they source 17" retina panels and put it back in the line-up before I have to replace my trusty old machine.
    For the way I use the MBP, a 15" would leave me needing a desk top version to supplement it.  I like having the one machine to do it all, and love that I now have the ipad to do the light hauling.  No need to take up space on my desk (or sit at a desk) with a desk top, when I have the 17" MPB.

  • I'm having problems with My MacBook Pro ever since downloading the new OS..

    I downloaded
    Mac OS X Lion 10.7.2  a few weeks ago, and now I've noticed weird glitches. For instance, my WiFi is SUPER spotty (even though we have RoadRunner top speed), and then I am having these random, yellow QR code-looking things that pop up on my screen whenever I change webpages or open up a new page on my browser (Google Chrome). Any help?

    Well for one get rid of Chrome and use Safari. Chrome is not reliable with Lion and should be avoided. Safari and Firefox are the only two really reliable and effective browsers.
    Secondly, reinstall Lion:
    Reinstalling Lion Without the Installer
    Boot to the Recovery HD: Restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the COMMAND and R keys until the menu screen appears. Alterhatively, restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the OPTION key until the boot manager screen appears. Select the Recovery HD and click on the downward pointing arrow button.
    Repair the Hard Drive and Permissions: Upon startup select Disk Utility from the main menu. Repair the Hard Drive and Permissions as follows.
    When the recovery menu appears select Disk Utility. After DU loads select your hard drive entry (mfgr.'s ID and drive size) from the the left side list.  In the DU status area you will see an entry for the S.M.A.R.T. status of the hard drive.  If it does not say "Verified" then the hard drive is failing or failed. (SMART status is not reported on external Firewire or USB drives.) If the drive is "Verified" then select your OS X volume from the list on the left (sub-entry below the drive entry,) click on the First Aid tab, then click on the Repair Disk button. If DU reports any errors that have been fixed, then re-run Repair Disk until no errors are reported. If no errors are reported click on the Repair Permissions button. Wait until the operation completes, then quit DU and return to the main menu.
    Reinstall Lion: Select Reinstall Lion and click on the Continue button.
    Note: You can also re-download the Lion installer by opening the App Store application. Hold down the OPTION key and click on the Purchases icon in the toolbar. You should now see an active Install button to the right of your Lion purchase entry. There are situations in which this will not work. For example, if you are already booted into the Lion you originally purchased with your Apple ID or if an instance of the Lion installer is located anywhere on your computer.

  • RAM on a macbook pro 2012

    I have been looking at youtube videos regarding changing the RAM on my macbook pro.
    Is there a big difference from 4GB of RAM to 8GB ?
    My macbook is still very new and under full warrenty both with apple and the store where it was bought.
    If i was to change it to 8GB would i be best taking it to apple to do this to keep the warrenty in order and
    would i see a difference with the speed that my macbook pro works ?

    Not if your uses are mostly email, web, and office in one app at a time. 4GB is fine for that.
    If you edit graphics and photos a lot, as a student or for a living, 8GB is more or less required. Or if you like to keep a lot open, like lots of browser tabs or lots of programs open at the same time.
    I was doing some high-res photo/video work the other day and I ran out of RAM very quickly on an 8GB Mac because of the number of apps I had open and the size of the documents. 16GB would have been great for that type of work.
