  1. Upgrading 2011 MacBook Pro

    Thanks john foster. I will let you know how it works out
  2. Good morning. I just picked up an iPhone 7S+ and plugged it into my laptop. I tried to sync my music library but it says it is stored in the iCloud. I tried to sync with iTunes preferences also with no luck. I am running iTunes 12.2.2 and the latest version of OS Sierra.Tanks ans Merry Christmas ahead of time for any help
  3. Upgrade question

    Thank you for your input johnfoster and huskermn. Now I just have to compare between SSD's. I am looking at the Samsung 500GB 2.5 SATA III Solid State Drive 850 EVO and the Crucial MX200 500GB SATA 6Gb/s 2.5" Internal SSD. Have you had any experience with these?
  4. Upgrade question

    Hello. I currently have an early 2011 MacBook Pro . I am considering upgrading to a 512GB Solid State Drive and maxing out the RAM to 16 GB. My question is, will this upgrade help much with the performance speed because the newer operating systems are more processing intensive? And with Sierra coming out in the future, should I just keep saving up for a new MacBook? Thank you ahead of time for any guidance you can give me.
  5. Airport Express

    Thank you so much johnfoster. I took your advice and my wifi is cruising! Thank you again
  6. Downgrading from Yosemite 10.10.2 to 10.10.1

    Hello again, I meant to say 8 gigs of RAM. Sorry about that
  7. I have a 2011 macbook pro 13" and since 10.10.2, it has slowed to a crawl often giving me the pop up " your system has run out of memory please quit some running programs" and "the finder" is the only option I have to force quit. I have maxed out the ram at 4 gigs. How can I downgrade to 10.10.1? I was running ok then. Thank you ahead of time for any help you give me.

  9. Going back to Mavericks

    Thanks all. I agree with Rogier. My MacBook only boots in safe mode now. I have 4GB of ram but when I restart, all I get is the grey screen status bar with the Apple logo
  10. STOP UPGRADING!

    I agree!! I upgraded to OS Yosemite and it worked good for a couple of days. NOW, it only boots in safe mode. Tried zapping pram. Can you go backwords and reinstall 10.9? Any help would be appreciated. I am using a 2011 13" MacBook Pro.
  11. Going back to Mavericks

    Is it possible to reinstall to Mavericks. I have a 13" macbook pro early 2011 and the update to Yosemite has slowed it down measurably. Even on restart, I am waiting 7to 8 minutes for everything to load. Thanks ahead of time for any help provided.
