I have a late 2011 MacBook Pro with 10.7..5 what is the next upgrade for this?

MacBook Pro 10.7. 5 late 2011 next upgrade

Another upgrade which may come first if not already, is to RAM with an increase in total capacity.
Maximum Memory    16 GB (Actual) 8 GB (Apple)
Memory Slots    2 - 204-pin PC-10600 (1333 MHz) DDR3 SO-DIMM

Given Mavericks OS X 10.9.5 is said to no longer be available, you may wish to try your luck first
with Mountain Lion 10.8.5 just in case your older computer does not like Yosemite 10.10.1. From
what I understand, you'd likely pay a fee to get & use Mt Lion. That may be worth it, if the unit
does not prefer Yosemite; and it may be difficult to revert to an older one after installing 10.10.
Good luck & happy computing!

  • Hi, I have a late 2011 MacBook Pro but cant get the mirroring function to work with Apple TV.  I've got the most recent Software 10.7.5 but cant see the mirroring icon or turn this on.  I'm able to mirror from my Ipad but not my Mac, any thoughts?

    Welcome to the Apple Support Communities
    AirPlay Mirroring is supported on your Mac, but it needs OS X Mountain Lion (10.8). See > http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5404
    You have two possibilities:
    1. Make a backup, open App Store and purchase Mountain Lion to upgrade to this OS X. Then, you will find the AirPlay Mirroring icon at the top right of the display, on the menu bar, or on System Preferences > Displays.
    2. Keep OS X Lion and use AirParrot > http://www.airparrot.com
    Both options work properly, but I recommend AirPlay Mirroring as it doesn't need a third-party program

    Can you AirPlay to an Apple TV with the MacBook closed? I have a late 2011 MacBook Pro.

    If you are using airplay then that should be fine once the content is playing. You can't use home-sharing in this manner however.

  • Late 2011 Macbook Pro with SSD Freezing

    Hello,
    I have a late 2011 macbook pro and about six or so months ago I have it a new lease on live with a Samsung 840 SSD (non pro).
    I haven't really had any problems with that until recently - the machine started locking up on wakeup. This meant that the beachball of doom would start and each program would gradually in turn become unresponsive. Shutdown command wouldn't work and would time out, force quit wouldn't open, and although I could move the mouse around and sometimes switch between programs, they didn't work and the only cure was to hold the power button until it switched off.
    This has also started happening just when the computer has been on for a certain amount of time *without sleeping*. For example, if I watch an episode of a tv show, by the end of it the video is still running but all of the other programs are locked up - clicking out of VLC causes the beachball of doom. This also happens in other programs - it's even happened as I've been writing this, and the only remedy seems to be a hard restart.
    The problem doesn't seem to occur in windows. In OSX I have 'put hard drives to sleep' turned off, and TRIM enabled. I also disables the sudden movement sensor. I have also reset the SMC.
    Does anyone know of a remedy short of a full reinstall of Mountain Lion?
    Oh and I used samsung magician in windows to update the firmware of the drive. It reports that the drive should be fine.
    Thanks very much for any help anyone can give me with this!

    anything is possible - corrupt files - corrupt drivers - it could be anything.
    try doing a nvram/pram reset and see if that sorts it out.
    i have ssd installed in all my Macbook/Macbook Pro and have never had any issues.
    Then again, I don't have windows installed in any of them.
    hopefully the nvram/pram reset sorts it out for you.
    once you've done that reset - go back to system preferences - startup disk and select your ssd as the startup drive again - then restart it again.

    Sorry ... I read but was unfortunately distracted from your original post.  You have a system that came with Lion.  The Lion that is on your system is only for your computer and cannot be downloaded from the app store again because you never purchased it officially through the App Store.
    Try this for making an external USB/DVD copy of Recovery on an external disk.  internet is still required for reinstall, though, I believe: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4848.  But at least you have a separate Recovery Partition if you ever need a fully new and empty internal disk.
    Your assumption is incorrect. Although he may not be able to download it from the App store he can download it directly for the Apple servers using the recovery partition on his original drive.
    All you have to do is start the install routine and then point the install to an external hard drive. Once the download is finished the computer will reboot to start the install. At that reboot disconnect the external drive so the install can not start. Boot the computer back into the OS on the internal hard drive, which is what will happen automatically once the external drive is disconnected. Then connect the external and copy the files from it that were downloaded. Right click on that downloaded package file and select Show contents. In the contents of that package is a file called InstallESD.DMG. Copy that file out of the package and burn it down to a DVD or USB thumb drive and you now have the Full Lion Installer. I have several of them laying around on different hard drives and 2 USB thumb drives which I have used to reinstall Lion on my 15" MBP.
    Sorry OP I should of just typed this out in my first post.

  • I have a late 2011 macbook pro and it wont update the firmware to 2.7, it downloads the update then says its installing it but when i go back to software update it keeps coming up saying it needs to be updated

    I have a late 2011 macbook pro running OSX Lion, and it wont update the firmware to 2.7, it downloads the update then says its installing it but when i go back to software update it keeps coming up saying it needs to be updated. Im wondering what can i do to stop this or get it to update.

    Once it is downloaded you need to restart the computer if it does not restart automatically. When it next starts up you should note a progress bar appearing below the Apple logo. When done the computer will restart once more. The new firmware should now be installed.

  • Download SD card on Late 2011 Macbook Pro with iPhoto 9.6

    I am on a 13 inch late 2011 Macbook Pro running Yosemite 10.10.1, using iPhoto 9.6.   When I download photos straight from the SD card to iPhoto some of my photos come out like this.  They are good on the SD card and if I reload them 1-3 times they turn out okay.  I use an external hard drive, but I switched back to loading them on my hard drive to see if that would resolve the issue, they still loaded like below.  I have tried different SD cards, different cables (on external HD).  Any ideas?

      They are good on the SD card and if I reload them 1-3 times they turn out okay.
    Are JPEGs also corrupted?
    If  only some RAW files that are corrupted, and if the results are random, it looks more likely a hardware problem than a problem with the RAW support. I recommend to make an extra backup of your mac, just in case. And then test your drives and the memory. It might also be the USB port.

  • I have a late 2008 Macbook Pro last updated to Mavericks OS.  The screen died and it's not worth replacing.  How do I remove the hard drive and use a drive sled to access info I need?

    I have a late 2008 Macbook Pro last updated to the Mavericks OS.  The screen died and I took it into an Apple store and was told replacing the screen and the hardware to repair everything would cost almost as much as buying a new laptop or a cheaper model.  I was told that I can use a drive sled to access data I need on my hard drive. How do I remove my hard drive and use a drive sled to get to the information I need?  What makes matters more complicated is I need to update my iPhone and my iTunes/App store purchases.  How can I accomplish this?
    My wife has a late 2008 Macbook Pro as well, which I am assuming I need to run my hard drive.  Is there a way to just access just my hard drive without interfering with hers?
    I know this is lengthy.  Thanks to whoever looks at this and offers advice/instruction.

    the device you need is an External enclosure for a 2.5" (laptop form factor) SATA drive.
    A USB-interface enclosure will be slow, but is adequate for this task and for re-purposing as a backup drive later.  A firewire-interface drive would be faster, but is harder to find, more expensive, and faster than needed for this purpose.
    The drive will mount as an "extra" drive on your wife's Macbook, and you can drag and drop whatever you wish. You could create a separate Account for yourself on her computer, and use Migration Assistant or just copy your stuff over to the new account. Then it would not interfere with her files.

  • I have a late 2008 macbook pro with a 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 2 GB 1067 MHz DDR3 memmory. Its starting to lag and is generally getting a little slow. It's running Mac OS X Lion 10.7.5. How can i "update" it or just improve it's efficiency?

    help

    zibiva,
    depending upon what you use your Late 2008 Aluminum MacBook for, you could increase your RAM from 2 GB to 4 GB or 8 GB; you could replace its hard disk drive with a SSD; and/or you could examine what software is currently in regular use, to see if any of those apps is contributing to the slowdown. If you haven’t done so already, you could download and install EtreCheck, and include the output from running EtreCheck in your reply, to see if anything there stands out as being particularly CPU- or RAM-intensive.
