    There will almost certainly be a Retina Air this year, if not quite soon.

    I would get an iPad, a BT keyboard and keep your MBP to be perfectly honest.

    ntg speaks truth. If you're just travelling, not leaving for 6 months with only a wicker basket of things to take with you, and iPad may do you just fine.

    Yeah keeping the MBP and going with the iPad does seem like the most sensible of the options (if I was determined to go with a new expensive toy). Just bloody love those 11" Airs.

    Basically, I need a new desktop, but I also am reasonably sure that within a year or two I'll be going freelance, and which point I'll need a lap top.

    So, I'm thinking I might try and kill two birds with one stone and just get a proper fuck off 15" pro with all the bells and whistles.

    Yes, they are lovely, aren't they? I have to strongly resist getting one every time I'm in an apple store, just because they're so dinky and pretty.

    Depending on what you want to use it for, you may be as well getting an 11" Air for taking to meetings, a quality monitor to plug it into when you have it at home and treat yourself to a new sonos speaker with the change.

    The 15" retina is more about doing presentations really. Sometimes I have to do them on my laptop if I'm meeting a client in a coffee shop or something, and it's amazing what a difference the pretties can make for selling something in.

    The bells and whistles is more about my own peace of mind. My general rule of thumb is get as much power as I can afford. i'll never regret having the power, but I might regret not having it.

    That's pretty much what the 13 inch retina is ;)

    For the emperor!

    Yes, but I wouldn't be surprised if the new Airs are even thinner and lighter still.

    I dont think Haswell would be able to drive a retina air, it will probably come with Broadwell in 18-24 months

    Fucking iTunes. All I want to do is grab some music files from one simple playlist into another. Won't let me do it. I've seen things about ordering by the numbers and making sure shuffle is turned off. WHAT?

    "iTunes a hideous binary turd that transforms the sparkling world of music and entertainment into a stark, unintuitive spreadsheet." - Charlie Booker

    Not that it matters too much but I'm starting go get wound up by this piece of shit.

    Edit: I've checked the above as well and all seems well. Still can't do it.
    Edit 2: I've sussed it out. Think different and not be easy or intuitive.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    I want to delete everything off my iphone, I know you can do it in settings.

    But my question is will that delete everything on icloud as well?

    Can someone walk me through how there is zero trace of anything anywhere, iphone, icloud or anywhere else.

    Thank you

    Pretty obviously no. If you want to delete everything from icloud, go to icloud.com and delete it from there.

    Yeah, this the reliable place to find out what Apple does with the info you give it. Read their privacy policy, ask them what happens with your data once you delete your account.

    Hmm, some bizarre editing here. I'm not sure what the conversation is about any more.

    Thinking of selling my 2010 iMac and replacing it with a gaming pc. Roughly how much to you think I could sell it for? I bought it for 1300. 600ish?
  • Deleted user 19 March 2013 12:52:51
    Any free video editing software for Mac now that iMovie is a tenner?

  • Deleted user 19 March 2013 13:07:22
    Well I don't have it on my iMac and I looked on the App Store and they wanted a tenner for it.

    iLife doesnt come standard anymore. They ripped out iLife, made that standard and then separated the other apps on the app store.

    To be perfectly honest, a tenner for iMovie is still a total bargain.

    10 doesn't sound like much. Are you poor?
  • Deleted user 19 March 2013 14:21:58
    No it's just that I want to do a proof-of-concept for something and nothing may come of it and so don't want to waste a tenner.

    If you really dont want to pay for it, its not serialised and available on all good torrent sites.
