Will my MacBook Pro from 2008 work with the Thunderbolt Display? Or will I need an adapter?

Will my MacBook Pro from 2008 work with the Thunderbolt Display? Or will I need an adapter? I like to have two monitors and currently using an Cinema Display from 2005. Thanks

If your computer does not have Thunderbolt you cannot use a Thunderbolt display.  There are no adapters that will help.

  • Will the Black 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo MacBook work with the Thunderbolt Display?

    I'm looking into buying a new Thunderbolt Display, but do I need to buy a new MacBook Pro or will the Thunderbolt Display work with my Black 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo MacBook?

    Yes. You'll need to create a Mavericks USB installer from the App Store download, and the App Store is only available with 10.6 and above, so that's a challenge for you to overcome, but that SSD will install just fine.

  • Does the new Macbook Pro 13 2011 work with the Intel SSD?

    I've been trying to upgrade my macbook pro to an ssd (using stock original 5400 rpm 320 gb HDD) but so far I've been reading for like 2-3 hrs and came to a conclusion. Intel is the most reliable and most highly recommended. However, Intel SSD doesn't work with the new Macbook Pro 13" & 17" because of some cabling SATA III issues. Does the issue still remain or has it been fixed? If it hasn't been fixed, what is the current most highly recommended and reliable and best in terms of speed, reliability, and just...best SSD available that works best with the 2011 MBP? Can anyone help me out? Ive been reading that OCZ and others are faster than Intel but less reliable (higher failure rates) and MBP can't take advantage of faster 6/Gbps RAID III or something. help me!!! Should I just wait?

    If you search the web, you will predominately read about problems, not good experiences.
    I don't believe Intel is any less subject to issues, than the Sandforce SSD drives.
    Buy from a reliable source with a good return policy and warranty.
    OWC is well regarded.

  • How I got my 2011 MacBook Pro (17") to work with the UML290 without any 'hackery'

    Frustrated and fed up with waiting for Verizon to finally fully support an operating system that is almost two and a half years old now, I decided to experiment and play around with things myself.  Here is what I learned:
    For some reason, the "dial your number" network hack that people got working didn't work for me.  I set up everything as the tutorials all said (GRPS (GSM/2G), APN to "vzwinternet", dial your phone number, user name is [email protected], password is vzw, CID 3, etc).  It just would not work for me.  Maybe it's becasue I had my UML290 hooked up to a Windows 7 box that updated the firmware, which may have rendered this 'hack' inept.  I don't know; all I know as that, despite trying to get this method to work for several days, I was never able to get it to work.
    There was no way, as far as I could see, to force the Verizon Access Manager (VZAM) software to run in 32bit mode as you can with most other programs.  Typically, you can hilight a program, press CMD+I and select a checkbox to run an app in 32bit mode, but no such option existed for VZAM (for whatever reason).
    Finally, I found a workaround to get the modem working until Verizon gets their act together and makes VZAM work with 64bit OS X.  Here's how:
    Completely power off your computer. 
    Depress and hold the "3" key and the "2" key (at the top of your keyboard) at the same time BEFORE pressing the power button.
    Press the power button while continuing to hold the "3" key and the "2" key.
    Continue to hold the "3" key and the "2" key until the login prompt comes up.
    Log in as normal (you may have to remove a bunch of characters from the password field; just CMD+A and delete what's in there and type your password as usual).
    After following the steps above, you should have forced your Mac to run in 32bit mode.  Run VZAM as normal and you should have no trouble connecting to the 4G/3G network.
    Note: This measure is TEMPORARY, and will force OS X to load the 32bit kernel instead of the default 64bit kernel (if your MacBook is set up to use the 64bit kernel by default).  This change will be undone at your next restart provided you do not hold down the "3" key and the "2" key.
    Note: If you used previously posted "dial-up" methods to get your modem working on your Mac, you will need to undo the 'damage' to your settings that that workaround caused.  Please see my post here (post 14) for detailed instructions on how to do so.
    Note: This is a temporary solution that carries with it some down sides:
    True 64bit support offers higher levels of security than 32bit.
    You will likely be unable to use more than 3GB of of memory as a 32bit OS cannot, by nature, address that much RAM.
    Please let me know if you have any problems.  I can't promise I can help, but I'll do my best.

    Hey, it's a simple fix that should give most people what they want until there is full VZW support: the ability to use their card with the VZAM software.  I didn't see anyone else offering that suggestion...  If you don't want to use it, you don't have to.
    At the very least, this does seem to prove the theory that this is an issue with the 32/64bit compatability that some have refuted.

  • How to connect Macbook pro to a projector with the Mini Display to VGA adapter?

    When I connect them nothings happens, the display has a blue screenshot for a few seconds and then get back to the normal view of my desktop. It's the same if I digit "cmd+F2"... Please help me.

    The default method for adding a second display is called Mirroring. It uses a lowest-common-denominator approach to choosing display resolution, and often guesses wrong.
    System preferences > Displays > ( Arrange) and drag the superimposed representations of the two displays away from each other to invoke "Extended desktop" instead. Then you should be able to set the resolution for the projector to a more reasonable one, and your picture should appear.

  • I have a MacBook Pro late 2008 edition with 2 Gigs of RAM and running Mavericks. When trying to download Yosemite from the App Store it gives me an error message. Anyone has a similar problem?

    All,
    I thought it may be related to spaces in the path in which the script was called from. I tried having the ODBC command script in another directory but the same thing happens. It will give me the "CONFIGSYSDSN: Unable to create a data source for the 'Oracle in OraClient10g_home1' driver: Could not load the setup or translator library with error code -2147467259". As soon as the script is done running I can manually double click the script and it adds the DSN fine.
    Thanks,

  • AirDrop transfer between Mac mini (late 2012) and MacBook Pro (late 2008) works only one way.

    AirDrop transfer between Mac mini (late 2012) and MacBook Pro (late 2008) works only one way.  I see both machines on both airdrop windows. Firewalls on both machines are set exactly the same way, and with Network Browser set to allow.  Can send a file from Mac mini to MacBook, but not the other way.  Never get a window asking to accept on the Mac mini.
    Found no useful documentation on AirDrop anywhere in the whole support site.

    Maybe this will work. From an Apple support article.
    You can also use the Share button to send files to your neighbors via AirDrop. In a Finder window, select the item you want to share, and then click the Share button in the toolbar. For more information about the Share button, see this help topic:

  • I have a 1st Gen, MacBook Pro from 2006. For the last few years I've had to us my power adaptor as my battery no longer works. Now my power adaptor looks like it's coming to an end. Even though it's securely fitted, it often switches off.

    I have a 1st Gen, MacBook Pro from 2006. For the last few years I've had to us my power adaptor as my battery no longer works, and shuts down after 30 seconds it. Now my power adaptor looks like it's coming to an end. Even though it's securely fitted, it often switches off.
    I am planning on buying a new MacBook Pro later this year, but for the meantime I'm not sure if I should buy a new power adaptor, or if this is a problem with my MacBook Pro. Also does anyone know where I can buy a battery in the UK for 1st Gen MacBook Pro.

    OWC has batteries for 1,1 generation MacBook Pros and they ship internationally - http://eshop.macsales.com/.
    Your best bet for a power adapter is to get one from Apple. Third-party adapters just don't seem to be reliable (or safe). You can also buy a replacement battery directly from Apple, of course, but they're a bit more expensive.
    Good luck,

  • Will my HP Officejet Pro 8500 Wireless work with the new Mac OS Lion

    Will my HP Officejet Pro 8500 Wireless work with the new Mac OS Lion

    My experience with upgrading from Snow Leopard to Lion is that the OfficeJet Pro 8500 Wireless will print just fine, although it seems to take a little longer to find the printer on the network. My scan function however locks up and will not work. This really is an annoyance, though, since I have VueScan, which works fine with Lion.
    Hopefully, Apple and HP will not orphan the OS native scanning feature for HP multifunction printers.

    Hi.  I have a Macbook Pro Model 5,5 with one 800 firewire port.  I need to create two firewire 800 ports but only have an SD card slot (this is for video interface with 2 cameras).  Is this possible or do I have to have an express card slot in order to do this?

    Hi Jessica,
    No, the SD slot will not work, you need an ExpressCard/34 slot.
    I do not know if it works with cameras, but with two or more HDs, if the first one has two FW ports, you can "daisy chain" one or more additional HDs from it.

  • 15" i7 Macbook Pro from early 2011.takes the mac laptop two or three tries to boot successfully. It would turn on, show gray screen, shut down, turn on again, show gray screen, shutdown, and then turn on, show gray screen, before it can finally get

    Hello All,
    I have a 15" i7 Macbook Pro from early 2011. The past few weeks, it has been getting increasingly difficult to get on my computer. It takes the mac laptop two or three tries to boot successfully. It would turn on, show gray screen, shut down, turn on again, show gray screen, shutdown, and then turn on, show gray screen, before it can finally get to the dark gray log-in screen. Even when I finally get logged in to start working, thinking it would be okay now, it shuts down randomly.
    I've ruled out the possibility of a software problem because I've just done a clean re-install of Mac OS X Mavericks on my computer just yesterday.
    I did upgrade the RAM recently, about a month and a half ago, from 4GB to 16GB, I went to the apple store four days after that upgrade to have them do a hardware test, and clean the inside of my laptop, which helped with previous heat issues. When they did the hardware test, the hardware was all registered as fine from their system.
    I've tried resetting the SMC, PRAM, and doing the internet recovery hardware test, but to no avail. I thought I could at least find out what parts needed to be replaced from the hardware test but it seems that when the hardware test is almost finished, the computer just shuts down, So I am unable to see the results.
    My computer is also having battery issues, under battery condition, it says "replace now," parts have been ordered, waiting for arrival. But if the battery health is low, it should still boot up fine, it would just hold a significantly less charge.
    Could this be a hard drive issue?
    Has anyone had similar symptoms and how was it resolved?
    Does anyone know what I can do to alleviate this issue?
    I haven't had time to take it to Apple because I'm currently taking a 21 credit semester academically. I'm an art and design student so my computer is basically the bane of my existence. Help! Any constructive advice is welcomed!
    Thank you so much for your input!
    -Christina C.
