Damaged screen coated end of 2013 Macbook Pro?
MacBook Pro 15 inch model of retina end 2013 - OS X El Capitan
The coating of the screen of my macbook covered the period I owned, just to clean it with a cloth that has come with the macbook. At first, I thought it might just be an isolated issue, but it came to my attention that several other macbook owners have suffered similar damage to the coating of the screen. I read some articles and apparently Apple have a current repair for screens.
My Macbook is no longer under warranty because of me buy in late 2013.
My question to all of this is; Apple will replace screens and/or coating? If not, is there a way I can fix this and prevent it from happening again?

Please contact Apple as soon as possible.

I noticed the battery on my end 2011 13 "MacBook Pro does not seem to hold charge for a long time, I can take the machine off and he will die in about 90 minutes of light use from 100 to less than 10%
I tried a full cycle of discharge and recharge and checked the number of cycle in the details of the system (screenshot below):
Any ideas why the battery loses capacity so quickly? I'm not under all the apps that are starved for power and it drains quite quickly sleep when disconnected from the power supply.
It is certainly far maximum cycles count > https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201585

«She even drains quickly enough sleep when disconnected from the power supply.»
Just in case where, exit all open Applications before you put the Mac to sleep to see if that makes a difference.
Memory can be increased on a late 2013 Macbook pro of the retina?
It is welded in place and not extensible
I need some advice here.
I have a 2013 fully bridged on (500 GB SSD, 16 GB of RAM) MacBook Pro and the sound from the speakers awefully distorted.
I did all the regular troubleshooting inclusing a clean installation of the operating system, applications 3rd party and the problem persists.
The distortion is NOT dependent on volume, it is still there, as if the sound is cut at all levels.
Now, the headset on the port is perfectly clean, so I think I have it narrowed down to the (material) built-in drivers for speakers. I went to the Genius bar and they agreed and recommend a motherboard replacement. Since I have a month left my Applecare, I could do it, but I hesitate. Professionally, I rely heavily on my machine on a daily basis, and I fear that a machine otherwise perfect with zero problems (other than the problem of speaker) will be messed up.
What is your experience with a motherboard swap and what do you recommend I do? Live with the distortion and contemplate a great Macbook, or opt for repair until the warranty runs out. NB, I have a very old Macbook that I can use for the week or I'll have to miss my machine.
I'll answer my own question:
Do it! I had a fantastic experience! Not only was my main problem, distortion in speakers, correctly diagnosed and resolved, since engineering also saw a small white spot on my screen (who had been there forever), I also had a nine screen. Not only that, I got a new valve and bottom plate, so after 3 years of intensive use, my Macbook Pro looks like new again. Total costs under Apple care program: $0.
It's really the only problem with Aplle MacBooks: my excuse to buy a new went through the window, this machine will last me a few years ago!
What I can or cannot install OS X El Capitan to my lion 2011 macbook pro 10.7.5 end?
Yes, your Macbook Pro (late 2011) is able to support the OS X El Capitan!
See you soon!
Can I use memory Module Apple 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 (PC3-12800) - 2 x 4 GB to upgrade my end 2011 MacBook Pro (4 GB / 1333 Mhz)? The representative said it's for 2012, but I read here that some have used it without problems on years later.
Mac can be very picky with ram, unlike Windows machines. For that it works better with no trouble now or later, be sure to buy ram designed for Macs. Match sticks and speeds. Some Mac does not start if a faster ram is used. Go with 2 x 4 GB 1333 mhm, same SODIMM, made for Apple products.
I have the following machine - MacBook Pro (13 inch, end of 2011), 2.8 GHz Intel Core i7, 16 GB 1333 MHz DDR3, El Capitan. My hard drive seems to have failed, so I intend to replace it with an SSD. I'm looking at the - 1.0 TB mercury Electra 6 G 7 mm 2.5 - inch SATA 6.0 GB/s Solid State Drive. Is there any merit in going for the pro version i.e. 1.0 TB Pro 6 G or am I just using a sledgehammer to crack a nut of wall?
Any suggestions or advice would be appreciated.
Thanks & best regards,
In my Mini 2012, I thought that the drive to regulate (not Pro) was quite good.
The pro is guaranteed for 5 years vice 3-year warranty and is faster when you write compressed files.
It is up to you to judge the difference is worth the cost of the Bill.
My end of 2013 "trash" Mac Pro has an intermittent problem on start up - this can take up to 8 auto restarts before it starts to fully operational status. During these reboots red lights are visible through the base, in the area of the 3 & 4 DIMM slots. This happens in about 3-4 times when the Mac Pro is started first thing in the morning. Sometimes - but rarely - it will also restart after a period of normal operation.
Run diagnostics and, before one of the operations described below, this indicates that all was well but the 2 just many times where I ran diagnosis, he pointed out that no WiFi interface has been installed. Have also run Memtest that since several days of testing, running as a single user with multiple passes, says memory all OK.
Have tried resetting the SMC both NVRAM and update of the OS. Removed and reinstall the RAM modules. After the reinstallation of modules, first start only registered DIMM 1 & 2 modules. There seems to be no problem with the seating, nothing loose or place and taken liberation were entirely home. Next and all subsequent boots saved all 4 modules.
A day of immediate bootups without problem but then, first thing this morning, had two cottages restarts during startup. I gave the 2nd boot press / press and hold the 'on' then booted diagnosis - no problem not indicated. On the startup resulting, everything was fine.
I guess the problem is in, either the GPU or with 3 & 4 DIMM slots. Can someone tell me the meaning of red lights? Diagnosis would be easier if I knew.

Thank you for using communities of Apple Support.
I see that you have found a red flashing in the 3 & 4 DIMM slots. Typically, this indicates a bad RAM module or the module is not seated properly. I see you have already done the troubleshooting that I would have recommended. So, unless you have third-party RAM installed in your Mac Pro, I suggest you take a look at the following link to access the service options for your computer.
My macbook pro is up-to-date with 0sx el capitan 4gigs I'm unable to watch videos on youtube. They just say error and not load. YouTube said its my browser, but its update. If this were true, then why do some play and some do not.
I suggest you only begin by taking the measures recommended in this support article.
I have a MacBook Pro (15 inch, late 2011), 2.4 GHz Intel Core i7, 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 with a 750 GB SATA hard drive.
Since the upgrade to El Capitan (and I even thought of this way with Yosemite) my computer has SLOWED down considerably. Start-up time takes a few minutes and a few process kill me they are so slow. I work a lot with biomedical research, Adobe Lightroom and Illustrator software and is considering an upgrade for my Macbook Pro.
After reading about the upgrade to an SSD hard drive option, I came to a few questions:
Should I give up the optical drive and replace it with a SSD while also keeping my current hard drive? An SSD hard drive hybrid?
Is exchanging a better option than that on the current hard drive with an SSD or a hybrid?
The ultimate goal is SPEED. I store most of my pictures and research on storage cloud or servers to work as long I have 250 to 500 GB hard disk space (more we're crazy), I'm glad. It is the speed I'm after.
Upgrade memory would help me as well? What is worth?
For speed - SSD hands down. Hybrid hard drives do not have enough RAM flash to have the kind of impact the performance as an SSD. My experience is that people swear that by or swear systems that replace the optical drive with another drive. Personally, I would go with the largest affordable SSD and operate as the 500 GB SSD prices fell so much last year.
I just bought a second hand MacBook Pro (late 2011, i7 Quad 2.5 GHz with the 1 GB AMD Radeon HD 6770 M card) for a decent price. Here's the thing tho, I didn't know that AE CS6 does not play nice nice with AMD cards due because of the support CUDAGPU acceleration. Barefeats stipulates that ' every Mac with an NVIDIA GPU blew the...» AMD GPU... »
So, having said that, have I made a serious mistake by buying this machine? I looked online but couldn't get a clear answer: will be AE CS6 performs well with my AMD card?
Please note that I do not very big, but I need a kind of performance when I need (with out going into long explanations, I bought this machine to work at home, but I have a MacPro to work for the heavy stuff). What worries me is if I try and return, I'll sit for hours.
Can someone let me know if the AMD card will limit my performance with AE (and PS, I) CS6?

I just ordered and received the LG 4 k monitors but when comparing them with the Apple thunderbolt display monitor they were still close in brightness or color rendering. They had an orange very little the cast to them. They were the 31MU97C-B models and I could not find any reviews on them. They were actually newer and cheaper than the model 31MU97 (without the C - B).
So I sent them back. They were only 900 each, shipped. Is there anyone in the sound of my voice who can tell me a good 4 k monitor about the same price comparable to the Thunderbolt display, but in 4K? I've searched high and low.
Thanks in advance
Take a look at BenQ monitors. I use a pair of 24 '' those on my Mac Pro 12-core gaming and they are great. I got them to Fry. mine are not K 4s, but you could do a search and check BenQ 4 K specifications and perhaps find a store with some on display to check. Mine give identical color between the 2, so their QC is decent. (I got a pair of ViewSonics never able to calibrate to match!) They make the ViewsSonics (attached to my older PowerMac G5 and sat next to my Mac pro) look really weak and pale on the best settings of ViewSonic.

Be sure to watch the 3201PH against the PT. 3210 (who sell the FRY and even Wal-Mart) I don't think that the PT would be like good video. (he does not mention 4K on his form and sells for hundreds less.)

Yes, that fits into the space, which is a space of data sufficient for your needs? 275 GB?
Hello world! So, a couple of months ago I accidentally spilled some coffee on a corner of my MacBook (and it was really just a little) and the same day, the keyboard no longer responds. I didn't really know what to do so I checked what people on the Internet said, I tried to reset it in safe mode and was a success, but it does nothing. Then, after a week or two, a few buttons (only 2 or 3) has started working again, others were still unresponsive. So I decided to give finally the laptop for service guys, and now they are asking a huge amount of money, because there are critical failures in the hard drive (it's what they say at least). The thing is, before I gave them the * thing I fixed and there is no fault whatsoever, this is why I would like to know, if they tell the truth and that I should have the hard drive has changed, or are they just trying to get as much money as possible.
Thanks in advance!
