New MacBook Air 13


1. I use MacBook Air 13 (end of 2010 version) for which I have a connectionid for the operating system and also an identifier Apple App Store.

2. I will now buy a new MacBook Air 13 and wishes to have the former.

3. my questions:

one) should I create a new connection to the new machine name?

(b) not my Apple account Id can be used for the new machine also?

Thank you



Normally you would continue to use the same Apple ID. No need to get a new one just because you have a new computer.

  • Not an Airprint printer can be configured with a new Macbook Air?

    Recently purchased a new Macbook Air.   Can it be configured with an older printer on our WiFi network that has no Airprint?

    Sure. At the end of the day, COMMAND + P (or CTRL + P in Windows) always sends this same basic command PRINT to the default printer. Any printer that is.

    The only problem is the printer driver software. If the manufacturer of the printer has written a driver that works with MacBook Air, download it, install it and make your old default printer.

  • What do I have to pay 2 or 3 times for my new Macbook Air?

    I just got a new Macbook Air 2016.  I works very well and I am very satisfied.  When my battery is at 15%, I start to think how long I have to charge for the first time charge. I know that the batteries are better than they were a few years ago.  How about a new?.  I also perform an Internet search to find an answer, but it seems that I can't find a reasonable answer.  Therefore, I posted this question and I hope you c

    Just to charge once 100% will do so.

    Do not load more than once because it is a new battery.

    You can keep the computer in use.

    Keep the computer plugged in whenever possible.

    If you keep the computer always connected, make sure that at least twice a month

    Run it on battery until battery charge level falls to about 40-50%.

    Please don't completely discharge the battery. Discharge the battery completely will reduce wear and tear on the battery.

  • Ads pop up on the new MacBook Air. Very frustrating.

    I just plug a new MacBook Air on the weekend. I used help migration to transfer my files from one to the other. I think that it might cause a problem because whenever I try to use Safari and click a link, or anywhere on a page, it opens a new tab for a page popup for a betting site or similar. This was also a problem on my old MacBook. I was told that it was just slow. I understand there are a lot of these questions, but I can't find an answer which is quite recent. How can I solve this... Very frustrating and obviously it shouldn't be a virus/malware on a new product so could come from the former? Help!

  • I have a new macbook air, how can I sync it to my current macbook pro?

    Hi forum, I'm sure this question has been asked several times.  However, when I did a search I could not find an answer.

    In any case, I have a new macbook air I bought for travel purposes.  At first, I didn't want to sync it with my macbook existing pro... now, I think it was a bad decision.  And... I can't understand how to "marry" the two.  I would like to use the macbook pro as my 'home' or ' base' machine.

    Can someone point me in the right direction?

    Thank you


    You can sync things like photos, contacts, calendars, reminders, notes, etc. through the settings in the Apple menu > System Preferences > iCloud.

    If you have any documents, you do not want to be on both machines and synchronized you can do this by turning on iCloud drive in this same window of preferences and before moving the documents in iCloud drive folder. A way convenient to make this file accessible is to go in the preferences from the Finder, click on sidebar at the top of the Preferences of the Finder window and put a checkmark in front of iCloud drive in the Favorites section of this window.

  • Office 2008 installation fails on the new Macbook Air

    I get a Setup error trying to install Office 2008 on my new MacBook Air running El Capitan.  I tried my new Super drive I bought just to do this, and I also copied the installation on my 750 GB external drive as well, but nothing works?

    Thank you very much


    You must install Office 2011, if you can find it, or get a subscription of $99 / year to 2016 from Microsoft Office. Individual applications can be downloaded freely. If you do not have a subscription, then they operate in trial mode.

    If you got less than a month ago, it is still under warranty of 90 days (I think), so take it back to the Apple Store you got OR no matter what Apple Store close to you if you bought it online.

  • How the practice is to use iCloud for storage with a new MacBook Air documents

    I currently have almost 500gig in documents on my macbookpro 2012.  Thinking of getting a new MacBook Air. For storage, I need to iCloud or a external hard drive. Don't want to carry a second piece of equipment, so I think almost any movement to the cloud. It's convenient.  Safe?

    Simply store your 500 GB of documents in iCloud is a space-saving convenience and sharing between or on your Mac (s). It is not a backup strategy because Apple does not archive the user data stored in iCloud. External, 2 TB USB3 drive will fit in the Palm of your hand, weighs almost nothing and ensures that Time Machine is to backup your user data wherever you are. It is the solution that I use with my MacBook Air to 2014, even when sitting in a coffee shop (and using VPN for security). Time Machine also captures Users/yourname/Library/Mobile Documents, which is your application compatible iCloud files and documents.

    As well as a Time Machine backup of this 500 GB of documents, I would like to put them on another external drive that goes on the plateau to ensure the guard. Sometimes external drives completely fail without warning, including two Time Machine disks that happened to me over the past four years.

    If you choose to use another non-Apple Cloud service, read the fine print on this autonomy of providers to transfer data between international servers, and your rights under foreign laws and safety distance will always give you access to your data.

  • New Macbook Air - synchronisation issues

    I just pick up a new Macbook Air and trying to put it all.

    I have connected to my iCloud account but I have problems of synchronization. So far, the only note that my Air acknowledges is those of earlier. All changes I made to those on my ipHone or other Macs not displayed.

    I checked the accounts and all my notes of hone are on my iCloud account, that I have connected on my Air.

  • Photosmart c4280 print gibberish of the new Macbook Air with OS X10.9

    I can't get this to print.  It will show the page after page, a single line of gibberish for a simple print request.  The machine is a new macbook air with 10.9.4 IMac w/10.6 wife print wireless with no problems.  As does my son 7 windows-powered PC.  So I don't know where to turn.  I already did a reload of the pilot with the same results.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    No problem.

    Since it can print on other computers, have you tried another connection on this 10.9.4 computer? I just want to see if that makes a difference. You can try to use a USB cable to check if you are receiving the same question. If you do not, then you know that something is interfering with the wireless connection. If you do not have the same issue, then you will need to contact Apple support for assistance. Click here to read: Apple Worldwide Contact.

    Good luck.

  • Can I install Adobe Creative Suite Design and Web Premium to my new MacBook Air

    I own the Adobe Creative Suite Design and Web Premium. I'm upgrading to MacBook Pro, MacBook Air and want to know if I can move my my new MacBook Air Adobe software.

    [Edited... title download to install to match the question... MOD]

    Do not move or copy programs, you are doing a new installation

    You install programs exactly in the same way you did the 1st time... Put your disc in the drive, and enter your serial number when asked


    Download & install instructions can help

    -includes a way to go to a page to download the Adobe programs if you do not have a disk or drive

  • Transfer/upgrade of long registered version of PS CS4 on cell phone deadline on the new MacBook Air without going to monthly subscriptions?

    Hi all, I'd be grateful for advice please as I'm going round in circles with this for days now.

    I would like to use Photoshop on my new MacBook Air, but I don't want to pay a monthly fee. I have a registered version of CS4 on my old machine, with the serial number, but I do not see how to install it on the Air without going into the CC - I really want to pay a monthly fee to use a product that I already paid for.

    So, my question is, are at - it an older version of the trial of the PS that I could download for Air and then upgrade? Obviously I can not put the original disc as there is no drive. Each trial download that I found so far installed PS CC.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Chloe,.

    To be honest I'm not sure what the rule was with CS4, certainly today you are allowed to have Photoshop on both machines, but that might not always have been the case. In any case, you can test. Do not turn off on the old machine and try to install on the new. If he accepts your serial number, then you know it's possible, if not then you will need to disable it on your old Mac. I tend to think that for some people, CS4 is all they will ever need, but like you said there is no route update to CS5 now. The big problem with older versions is sure that they will not work with the new operating systems, more true for Mac and Windows, and also because that Camera Raw is not updated they need Adobe's DNG Converter to work with the latest cameras. Photographic membership is good value for the money, but not if you've spent $1000 in the course Photoshop purchase. Not much I can say really, but it's business.
