  • Is there a maximum RAM capacity for a Macbook Pro 13 inch Mid 2009?

    My questions is essentially, is there a maximum RAM capacity for a Macbook Pro 13 inch Mid 2009? I'm aware there are two RAM slots in my machine, but in past experiences with other laptops/desktop computers (not Apple) there was a default maximum which couldn't be overidden despite how much RAM was inserted.

    You can upgrade up to 8GB using 2 x 4GB 204-pin PC3-8500 (1066 MHz) DDR3 modules. That's the maximum (unlike 2011 and later models which Apple tells you can only hold 8GB but can actually run 16GB).
    If you do order RAM, order from a Mac memory specialist - Crucial, OWC, Corsair, etc.
    Good luck,

  • Can anyone point me to the correct type of RAM to purchase for a MacBook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2009)?

    I have a MacBook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2009) that recently had some problems and I was forced to reinstall OSX and ended up upgrading to Yosemite (I was previously using Mavericks). Unfortunately I did not realize how much OSX 10.10 would slow down my computer, so I'm looking to upgrade my RAM from 4GB to 8GB to help resolve this. However, I don't really have a good idea what type of RAM I need aside from the fact that it needs to be 1066 MHz. I was hoping someone might be able to point me in the right direction as to what the exact type of RAM I need to purchase or possibly link me to a site where I could buy what I require. I know some people claim third party RAM doesn't work as well as memory that is made and/or sold by apple but I would prefer to go with whatever is cheapest.

    A 15" mid-2009 MBP RAM specifications are: 204-pin PC3-8500 (1066 MHz) DDR3 SO-DIMM.
    As has been pointed out, OWC is an excellent source for Mac compatible RAM.  Crucial is another first rate source for Mac RAM.  RAM from either vendor will work just as well as any purchased from Apple with the bonus of being less expensive and having a lifetime guarantee.

  • Power Adapter for 17" MacBook Pro 2.8GHz (Mid 2009)

    I'm curious to know if i can use a power adapter from an older 17" MacBook Pro 2.4GHz (Mid/Late 2007) with a brand new 17" MacBook Pro 2.8GHz (Mid 2009). Both are 85w i believe - but i wasn't sure about the new battery with this new computer.

    i would like to say, power adapters are of no tricks. They just provide voltage, current, and also the quality of them. When i say quality, it means how stable they can provide. All good functioning power adaptors should have an acceptable quality. So this is not a concern.
    Then, what is going on with the "power"? No matter how many watts, there are _*no differences*_. What you have to consider is: unless it cant boot up your system, or it is not capable to charge while you are working (lower watt will just charge slower), or it has some serious problems when you are doing some high energy consuming tasks (like playing 3D games, video converting). Otherwise, the power adaptor is said to be providing enough power, and nothing to be worried about =]

  • What's the optimum Scratch disk setup for a Macbook Pro?

    Hello Everyone,
    I'm starting to edit video on my Macbook Pro. I'm going to need a scratch disk. Should I get a dedicated 3.5" scratch disk or should I spend the same money on a new HD for my Macbook pro and just use the stock 200gb drive as the scratch disk? It's a mutiuse system... If you were in my shoes, would you put the newer, faster HD inside my computer or use it as a scratch disk?

    Just to jump in on this, and add to the orignal post. I have a Macbook (not pro) and I need to get a external HD. I'll obviously go for Firewire, the only problem I can forsee is importing footage from my DV camera, which is also Firewire. My Macbook only has a single Firewire port. I know most externals have a Firewire Hub built in, enabling you to connect through there, but is that sufficient, will the transfer rates be ok for DV capture, as it seems like the footage would have to go from the camera, to the external Hard Disk, to the Macbook, and back to the Hard Disk, seems like a big effort, which could lead to dropped frames.
    I'm sure this has been encountered before, just asking another question to add to the original post, and also to help me decide.
    One other thing, if it is ok with DV, would it be ok with Hi Def, as I plan to upgrade the camera some time soon, so I wouldn't like to pick something, that would soon be useless.

  • What is the hottest safe running temperature for a MacBook Pro?

    So I've been having issues with my laptop crashing repeatedley and I ended up putting it down to overheating (from feeling the base/black strip) and do I downloaded a widget for dashboard which tracks CPU temperature and I'm runnin fairly consistently at 70-95, sometimes up to 103 degrees or so. Figure this can't be good for it, and from my reading it should be running at about 60 degrees or so. So how hot is too hot, and how do I go about cooling it more than the fans at 6300rpm?

    The MacBook Pro isn't adverse to periods of high temperature, but it's always good to avoid them. 170 degrees F is an acceptable upper level, but you'll want to find ways to lower the heat.
    1. Don't use your MBP on your lap. You'd be surprised how common this practice is; this raises the temperature of your laptop by twenty degrees, constantly. Use your MBP on a table.
    2. Avoid intensive operations for long periods of time. It's okay to use your machine as it's supposed to be, but a MBP isn't a desktop computer. Intersperse high-temperature use with low-temperature to let your MBP cool a bit.
    3. Download an application like SMC Fan Control http://www.eidac.de to help you manually increase the fan. If you have a more recent Mac, look for http://codykrieger.com/gfxCardStatus GFX Card Status, which allows you to moderate graphics use on your MacBook.

  • What is the best hardware test utility for my macbook pro?

    I'm familiar with Apple Hardware Test which is available by pressing the 'D' key before the gray startup screen appears, but what about other 3rd party utilities? Are any of them better than A.H.T.? For instance how does ToolTech Pro 6.0.6 compare with A.H.T.? Additionally is DiskWarrior any better than using the apple's built in disc utility (cmd + r upon startup or in utilities folder)?

    Thanks for the advise Linc Davis. I just spoke with a technician a moment ago who confirmed some of what you said. He told me that Disk Warrior is, as you said, for software related issues, but for hardware related issues they use Vilitans Software called Smart Utilities which is helpful in diagnosing any hardware related problems with a hard drive. He also informed me that there are no utlities, that he knows of, outside of what Apple Service Centers provides have that is any good for any other form of hardware diagnostics.
    The reason I've posted this is in hopes that there was something I could buy and use in the future when I don't have easy access to an apple store and for use now since I'm having trouble with my system periodically crashing during it's sleep mode. I would really like to figure out why. I've checked the hard drive already with the apple disc utility and it's fine, but I'm still getting the crashing so that's the other reason I was hoping to obtain this utility, but it's clear I should wait till I get to an apple store or service center to resolve this problem appropriatly.

  • What is the best external hard drive for a macbook pro?

    There is no best drive.  None is better than the other.

  • What is the best laptop cooling fan for a macbook pro?

    I have my macbook on basically all day every day and I just want a nice cooling fan for underneath it so it doesn't overheat on me

    I've never had any overheating issues, even when it is hard at work with several VMWare Fusion instances running concurrently. Just placed it on top of a Roadtech Coolpad (a passive laptop stand) and it's kept its cool thus far.

    Runaway applications can shorten battery runtime, affect performance, and increase heat and fan activity
    anything using double-digits is suspect.

  • Mag safe adapter for macbook pro 15 inch mid 2009 model

    is it safe to  use a 60 watts mag safe adapter for my macbook pro 15 inch mid 2009 model. i went to istore to have a battery replacement and they advice me to change my 60 watts mag safe to 85 watts because it is not compatible.....

    use the 85w charger.
    "Power adapters for Intel-based Apple notebooks are available in 45W, 60W, and 85W varieties. Although you should always use the proper wattage adapter for your Apple notebook, you can use an adapter of a higher wattage without issue.
    For instance If you have a MacBook (13-inch Late 2009) that normally uses a 60W adapter, you can also use an 85W adapter with that computer. You would not use a 45W adapter with that computer; it would not provide enough power for that MacBook. "

    Guys, i am actually trying using a solution provided by the article shared by dominic23,
    It says "Another option is to get an ionizer to help the atmosphere in the workplace be more conductive and pull charges away from contact surfaces, including yourself."
    So in my home, we have such device that could clean the air using ion, and i am using it in my room...
    Result: BANG!!! The electric shock on my macbook has gone!! I don't really care about physics but somehow it works! You guys should give it a try.
    Thanks again dominic23

  • The battery for my macbook pro 13 says "service battery".  Now I want to get a replacement but the reviews for it are horrible! Does anybody have any suggestions?

    The battery for my macbook pro 13 says "service battery".  Now I want to get a replacement but the reviews for it are horrible! Does anybody have any suggestions? I don't want to spend 130 dollars on something I'm going to have to replace in less than a year (which is what normally I been reading)  I do design work and I take my mac everywhere.  Having to always look for a plug or having to be constantly plugged in doesn't sound ideal to me.  Please help me. what should I do???

    Why does it matter if it a scam????? I'll let you figure that out by yourself.  If I'm going to replace it, why should I be contempt with a battery that I have to replace within months (as stated by some people in the comments). The issue here is not if I should or not replace it OBVIOUSLY I'm going to have to before it starts going crazy.  The underlying issue is why is the replacement battery for a lack of better words " a bit crap."  It comes with a 3 month guarantee?? Is that a joke?!??!?! Some people complained it malfunction after only 8- 9 months? I'm sorry but as an Apple fan I think it's absolutely rubbish. I know there is no magic cure I'm just hoping someone shines the light on how crappy this replacement is.
