  • Just bought a used Oct '13 MacBook Pro and I can't sign into the App Store as it still displays the old owners user ID in the login box (in fixed grey text). Any ideas of how I what I could do? Thanks.

    The first thing you should do with a second-hand computer is to erase the internal drive and install a clean copy of OS X. How you do that depends on the model, and on whether you already own another Mac. If you're not sure of the model, enter the serial number on this page. Then find the model on this page to see what OS version was originally installed.
    1. You don't own another Mac.
    If the machine shipped with OS X 10.4 or 10.5, you need a boxed and shrink-wrapped retail Snow Leopard (OS X 10.6) installation disc, which you can get from the Apple Store or a reputable reseller — not from eBay or anything of the kind. If the machine has less than 1 GB of memory, you'll need to add more in order to install 10.6. I suggest you install as much memory as it can take, according to the technical specifications.
    If the machine shipped with OS X 10.6, you need the installation media that came with it: gray installation discs, or a USB flash drive for some MacBook Air models. If you don't have the media, order replacements from Apple. A retail disc, or the gray discs from another model, will not work.
    To boot from an optical disc or a flash drive, insert it, then reboot and hold down the C key at the startup chime. Release the key when you see the gray Apple logo on the screen.
    If the machine shipped with OS X 10.7 or later, you don't need media. It should boot into Internet Recovery mode when you hold down the key combination option-command-R at the startup chime. Release the keys when you see a spinning globe.
    2. You do own another Mac.
    If you already own another Mac that was upgraded in the App Store to the version of OS X that you want to install, and if the new Mac is compatible with it, then you can install it. Use Recovery Disk Assistant to create a bootable USB device and boot the new Mac from it by holding down the C key at the startup chime. You will need the Apple ID and password that you used to upgrade. Note that if your other Mac was never upgraded in the App Store, you can't use this method.
    Once booted from the disc, the USB device, or Internet Recovery, launch Disk Utility and select the icon of the internal drive — not any of the volume icons nested beneath it. In the Partition tab, select the default options: a GUID partition table with one data volume in Mac OS Extended (Journaled) format. This operation will permanently remove all existing data on the drive, which is what you should do.
    After partitioning, quit Disk Utility and run the OS X Installer. When the installation is done, the system will automatically reboot into the Setup Assistant, which will prompt you to transfer the data from another Mac, its backups, or from a Windows computer. If you have any data to transfer, this is usually the best time to do it.
    You should then run Software Update and install all available system updates from Apple. If you want to upgrade to a major version of OS X newer than 10.6, get it from the Mac App Store. Note that you can't keep an upgraded version that was installed by the previous owner. He or she can't legally transfer it to you, and without the Apple ID you won't be able to update it in Software Update or reinstall, if that becomes necessary. The same goes for any App Store products that the previous owner installed — you have to repurchase them.
    If the previous owner "accepted" the bundled iLife applications (iPhoto, iMovie, and Garage Band) in the App Store so that he or she could update them, then they're linked to that Apple ID and you won't be able to download them without buying them. Reportedly, Apple customer service has sometimes issued redemption codes for these apps to second owners who asked.
    If the previous owner didn't deauthorize the computer in the iTunes Store under his Apple ID, you wont be able to  authorize it under your ID. In that case, contact iTunes Support.

  • Can I connect my thunderbolt display's power cable to supply power to the new retina display macbook pro?

    I'm planning to buy a new retina display macbook pro, but I have a thunderbolt display and I use the display's power cable to supply the power to a macbook air. As the power connector on the new macbook pro is differet, It looks to me that I won't be able to connect it to the new computer. I'm I correct?

    You'll just need this adapter, which you can buy or order with the computer:

  • Difference between the 2012 Macbook Pro and the new Retina display Macbook Pro?

    Title says all!

    Well really all the specs are posted in black and white on the Apple store website. They even have a Compare feature on the site.
    I find it really odd that posts like your show up here every day. "Which Mac should I buy". I always want to reply "The one that fits your needs and you can afford".
    Just how does anyone on this forum know what YOU need from a computer and what computer is best for YOU. You would be the only one that knows that after you read all the specs of the models you are thinking about buying and also go to one of the many Apple stores or resellers and physically look at and use them.

  • New retina display macbook pro or iMac?

    Hi so I'm trying to buy a new computer and I'm stuck.
    I was going to buy a 17" MacBook Pro, but since Apple stopped making those, I'm not sure what I should get. Since I already own a 11" Air and have something portable, I was looking for a more stable desk-top like product that had a large screen. I'm a college student but a 15" Pro seems to be a little to small.. But then to add to my dilemas, Apple added the retina display to the new Pros, so I'm not sure if which is better.
    I would be upgrading the 21.5" iMac to a 16GB memory. Which one would be better? I don't exactly edit movies or anything, I just need it for everyday use. Thanks.

    The iMacs are over a year old. The last refresh was back in May 2011. I'd wait it out if at all possible or jump on the MacBook Pro with retina display bandwagon.

  • Is there a neat way (or hardware solution) that will allow me to stream a DVD onto my new Retina display Macbook Pro?

    am going to update my Macbook Pro for the new Retina model but the one thing I will miss is a DVD drive. I've ordered a Superdrive BUT my dilema is this...
    Often my wife will be watching some dull reality show (Strictly Come Dancing or X Factor) and I would usually get my laptop, headphones and grab a DVD Box set (The Wire, Sopranos etc).
    I could sit and watch happily (and eisily go back to wherever point I last stopped watching)
    With the new Macbook I'm looking for the same easy solution. I don't want to sit with the superdrive on my lap, guess I can spend some time with Handbrake and rip all the DVD's to my new laptop (or a wireless storage device like this:http://www.seagate.com/external-hard-drives/portable-hard-drives/wireless/seagat e-satellite/
    But this would be timeconsuming and I'm not sure if the ease of playback would be as good.
    What I would really like is a DVD player that can just stream my DVD wirelessly to the laptop and I can control with the DVD player controls.
    Does such a thing exist or can somebody suggest any alternative ideas?
    Just to add, the main reason I chose this is that I often travel and the lighter, thinner design really appealed to me. I had considered a Mac Air in the past but it didn't have enough capacity or screen size for me when it was originally released.
    I guess I will still have to transfer some DVD's anyway to be able to watch whilst travelling.

    there is one actually use application called air playit, this is application has two parts the first one is the server part to install on any machine its available on Mac and windows you can configure it to stream from anything on the machine, the second part is the client you can install it on any IOS or android, the good thing about this application is you can use local network connection or Internet connection even you are outside still you can stream it

  • HT4818 15" Retina Display MacBook Pro and Bootcamp Assistant crashes.

    I've spent several days with the AppleCare Support team and also with the Genius Bar team at my local Apple Store on this issue.
    Has anyone else with a MacBook Pro 15" Retina Display encountered the same problem?  A colleague of mine who has a 13" MacBook Pro with a 13" Retina Display was able to install Windows 7 using Bootcamp Assistant.  My local Apple Store even tested installing Windows 7 on a clean-build OS X (10.8.3) 15" Retina MacBook Pro.  Same problem.

    Where does it crash, if it crashes at the partitioning of the drive try to remove any other external/thumb drives that may be plugged into the computer before it goes to the partitioning phase.  I have seen this happen on occasion when the thumbdrive that has the windows drivers on it is plugged in and mounted.

  • How can I get my iPhone to sync with a new computer without being erased?

    I was syncing my iPhone with my MacBook Pro, but I formatted the operating system and installed a new iTunes on my laptop. When I connect my iPhone to the laptop, iTunes wants to erase everything in order to start syncing. I want to start syncing with my laptop, not remove all the content already on my phone. I don't want to loose my apps, my contacts, bascially everything on my iPhone.
    What can I do? I appreciate for your help
    Best!

    See the excelent user tip by wjosten: https://discussions.apple.com/docs/DOC-3141
    In short, you can't. But, you can do it in a way that minimizes what information will be lost, if any.

    I am wating to put song onto my phone that are on the Itunes on my Mac but it isn't letting me add the songs. How do i change it so that my phone syncs with my mac and not my old computer?

    From your OLD computer...
    Copy your ENTIRE iTunes FOLDER to an External Drive... and then from the External Drive to your New Computer..

    An Added Bonus is that you will have a Backup of iTunes.
