CAT | MacBook Pro

As many of you know, last October, Apple introduced a new option for hard drive configuration on selected models of Macs. It combines the speed of solid state memory drives with the less expensive and larger traditional hard drives. They called it Fusion Drive.

What you might not realize, is that you might be able to give you this same option for your existing Mac. Last Month, John Paul installed a fusion Drive upgrade on my mid-2010 MacBook Pro. It is Hands down the greatest upgrade he has ever done for me. My MBP now only does 1 and half start up circles when booting. Apps seem to launch instantly and Mail and iPhoto have the energy and responsiveness that I have never seen before on any Mac I have owned. One of our long TIme customers, Amadu, and one of our first Fusion Drive recipients agrees that this was one of the best upgrade ever.

So whats the catch?

The solid state memory takes up the connection port used by the superdrive. I always hate when somebody takes something away, even though I haven’t used a CD or DVD in years.

FEAR NOT! John Paul can save your antiquated old SuperDrive and stick it in a sexy slim USB house so you can have access to it when you need it.

Fusion Drive Upgrade

We can you provide you with a complete Fusion Drive solution, starting at around $200, complete with installation, data migration to the new drive and the SuperDrive USB case.

Stop in and talk to John Paul about what would be best for you and your needs.

Apple has determined that a small number of MacBook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2010) computers may intermittently freeze or stop displaying video on the built-in display or on an external display connected to the MacBook Pro. In this situation, you may also see a restart warning message before the video is lost or the display turns black or gray. Affected computers were manufactured between April 2010 and February 2011.

TNW is reporting that some early adopter of the mush anticipated Macbook Pro are experiencing image retention on their screens. TNW isn’t the ones reporting this either. The Dutch site has similar reports.

It would appear that this is some thing Apple is aware of and is working on a solution. If you are having this issue, you should be able to return your mac to an Apple store where they will replace it with out any hassle.

The shipment time from the online Apple store for the Retina MacBook Pro is now up to 3-4 weeks.
