To high-res or not to high-res?

I'm just about to buy a Macbook Pro 15-inch 2.53Ghz. I'v got some worries about whether or not to add the 'high-res' screen option. Two questions: (1) Will these 1680x1050 screens be the standard for 15-inch MBPs in future? (2) If you have one, what are your experiences/advice? [more inside]

21st century couch potato

I plan to hook up our new 13" MacBook Pro to our HDTV and am wondering if I should get either the magic mouse or the magic trackpad to control it from the couch. Any first hand experiences? I'm assuming that either option would be more useful than the apple remote (for watching youtubes and the like).

What's a good color temperature in vague terms for DTP work?

What's a good colour temperature for DTP work, in terms of warmness/coolness? That's to say, what will avoid me getting too much of a shock when I see the printed materials (that include photos)? My 2009-era Macbook Pro's display edges towards warm (yellowish) while my Samsung SyncMaster 2333 edges towards coolness (blueish).

MacBook Pros are amazing, sure, but amazing HOW?

My seven-year-old laptop, an iBook G4 (1GHz PowerPC G4; 1.12 GB DDR SDRAM) running OS X 10.4.11 is on its last legs (I'd really like to be able to watch those youtubes everyone talks about) so I've bought a new one: a MacBook Pro (2.4GHz Intel Core i5 4GB Memory) running Snow Leopard is being shipped to me now. I'd like to know what to expect. [more inside]

Low Audio on Bootcamp Windows XP

I have a few Macbook Pro systems at work that we've installed Windows XP via Bootcamp on. We've done this with previous Macbook models in the past.

Cross-Platform Crashing on a Macbook Pro

I have Leopard and Windows 7 (7057) installed on my Late 2007 (possibly older, I got it refurbished) Macbook Pro 15". My problem is, every time I boot into either OS, I get a kernel panic or BSOD respectively. The fact that it happens in 2 different operating systems makes me almost positive that it's a hardware problem. Unfortunately, I don't know very much about computer hardware, so I don't really know what to troubleshoot first, and I don't want to void the warranty by opening the case (I plan to take it to the Apple Store if nobody here can solve the problem). Specifically, either operating system will crash about a minute into booting up. I don't think the problem can be too serious because everything graphically looks fine and all my files are intact. This leads me to think that maybe it's a RAM problem, and that it runs out of memory and crashes during bootup. [more inside]
