    I've broken my MacBook screen :(

    It's going to cost about $500 to replace just that component so I've decided to just upgrade to a Macbook Pro

    Best Webcam?

    OK, I got solution myself. To be able to record video clip with audio from Photo Booth by using QuickCam, it is required to set System_preference_ Sound_input to QuickCam first before opening Photo Booth and the Cam. (if you open photo booth first before setting system_preference, you'll record no sound.)

    USB3 on Mac?

    I personally wonder if Apple will ever release USB 3.0 support. A couple of months ago, Intel demonstrated a new kind of universal interface called LightPeak using OS X. People initially thought they were using a Hackintosh, but it turned out they were using a prototype Mac Pro MoBo, which implied Apple support

    Internet explorer 8 WineBottler

    If you are looking to install Internet Explorer 8 be aware that the developer of WineBottler warns both IE7 and IE8 are not particularly stable. I can confirm this, both crashed during testing the app but IE8 was particularly problematic. If you want to run Internet Explorer 8 in Mac OS I’d highly recommend just installing Parallels, VirtualBox, or VMWare with Windows, it’ll be far more stable.

    volume control doesn't work

    Hey guys, I tried this VoodooHDA version from insanelymac. It fixes volume keys - well, partially that is. When I get to about halfway down the bar, I can no longer hear anything; it's sort of like muted already. But it goes back up normally when I pump up the volume on full swing. It saves me from digging in Sys Pref to adjust PCM etc. PS. You won't need VoodooHDA prefPane for this. I think it's best that you set your volume as high as it can be via Sys Pref > VoodooHDA > PCM or something. Then install the new kext. Reboot and uninstall VoodooHDA prefPane.

    New netbook

    A netbook is a very useful little purchase. It makes even a regular notebook computer look huge and it truly has the ability to go anywhere. Today's netbooks are tiny little machines packed with a reasonable amount of power. You'll most likely get one gigabyte of RAM and a hard drive anywhere from 150 gigabytes to 300 gigabytes.

    Problem with CPU Fan on laptop

    You probably need to take it apart and clean the fluff out of the heatsink. A bit of air from outside won't shift it. Look if there's a flap on the back which gives you access. DE626645-2748-3D95-A60E-59AEC61FCF6F1.03.01

    Anyone with an Acer Travelmate 5520g?

    I can't find a cheaper one after a quick look. Acer brand is ok. I've had one for a couple of years, I've also upgraded it to run Vista. I've never had any problems with mine.
