  1. I'm very much leaning towards the Vivo Tab. I suspect the latest version of OSX that'll work is actually 10.6. I vaguely recall reading something about newer versions not running on Atom CPUs. I hope I'm mistaken. Even still, running 10.6 on it would be nifty.
  2. GenericUSBXHCI and DP4

    -- EDIT -- I decided to re-spin this post in to a full-on diary entry on my blog, complete with much more extensive benchmark numbers. ----------- This was the key to getting USB 3.0 working on my 17" MBP. I picked up a Windows ExpressCard to add USB 3.0 but couldn't get it working until this. Running Yosemite hasn't helped my cause, though I quite like it otherwise. Benchmarks Host SSD to USB 2.0 attached external drive: 20MB/s Host SSD to USB 3.0 attached external drive: 36MB/s USB 2.0 attached ext drive as USB attached drive in VMware (copying from AND to the usb drive): 6.48MB/s USB 3.0 attached ext drive as raw disk in VMware (copying from AND to the usb drive): 16MB/s USB 2.0 attached USB Flash Drive: 4.8MB/s USB 3.0 attached USB Flash Drive: 5.6MB/s Testing Methodology I test using the time command while running a copy of decently large files (min 300MB, max 2000MB). All of my tests are writing TO the attached storage mediums. My USB 3.0 hard drive is a little 2.5" USB 3.0 Seagate drive (STBX2000401). I'm running OSX 10.10 Yosemite Beta 2 on my 17" MBP (MacBookPro8,3) My USB Flash Drive is a Patriot Tab USB 3.0 drive (PSF8GTAB3USB) My ExpressCard is a GMYLE USB 3.0 BC628. I think I got it from eBay. It was like $10, probably less. My internal drive is actually stripe-RAIDed Kingston SSDs. So no bottleneck there I think. Other comments I was worried that the PC card would mess up my power management while suspended, but I just had it inserted while the machine was suspended for several hours and it looks like my battery was not noticeably impacted and the card worked both before and after the suspend. Reaction Eff-yeah! I hope I can find a way to get the system to notice the Express Card if inserted after boot. But that's not a USB 3.0 matter. PS - I'm shocked that my USB 3.0 flash drive only performed 16% faster. At least it was still faster, but wtf? Hopefully it's just a {censored} drive, it was inexpensive.
  3. ML into AMD E-350

    I'm wondering precisely the same thing..?
  4. Realtek ALC892 hissing sound -- OS X Lion

    Sure would have been nice to know the solution.. As I too have this problem. I guess thanks for pointing out it's solvable.. ha ha ha.. -- EDITED -- I found a solution that seems to have worked very well for me: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/255249-finaly-got-audio-working-alc892-msi-870a-g54-mainboard/ The jist: 1) Install VoodooHDA 2.7.3 2) Edit the VoodooHDA.kext's plist to change the "iGain" value to "0". I also found this comment, I never tried it: Plug in a 3.5 mm headphone or any type of jack into the back pink microphone header. The fuzz should go away. I'll add that I've been listening to music on my alc892 while writing this, I'm getting very very rare, sparse little crackles/pops. Not sure if it's the audio source content, my headphones or something like an improperly configured buffer in the driver (probably not that, but kind of resembles that).
