Thread: MacBook Pro

  1. #1

    Default MacBook Pro

    Got a mail saying there will be offer on
    " MacBook Pro 1.83GHz STAR BUY! S$2,688 (U.P. S$3,688) SAVE S$1,000! "

    So i check out apple
    and it does not seem to have a 1.83ghz cpu mac book pro.

    1.83GHz is the older version. Apple stopped producing it. I'm using one now. Check out which version first. Early versions (up to week 10) have a higher probability to have a soft hissing sound.

    icic ..
    the hissing sound is just some noise pollution u mean ?

    how much u bought the other time ?
    looks tempting to me ..

    No. Hissing sound is a known problem concerning the thermal paste, which Apple over-applied. It's irritating, and if you get a MBP, you'd better hope you don't have it.

    I bought from Diversitec (NP Student) at $3477 in March. But it's only for NP Staff and students.

    Check out the Apple Store at Wheelock Place. Think they have a discounted price. But not 1.83GHz I think. They're offering 2GHz.

    U mean the thermal paste cooking on the processor, just like the sound I hear when frying an egg in the pan?

    The 1.83 is older MBP - http://www.applecentreorchard.com/Gsspromotion.htm

    I'm going for the 2.0Ghz one. Hee... I already own a ipod Mini, so don't think I'm going down, my sis might, she's interested in 60GB iPod Video.

    They are clearing the first generation of MBP with all the heat, sound probs, discontinued product line but still under limited warranty.

    My advice: If it's too good to be true and they are really slashing $1000 (A steep dis)... sounds 2 good 2 be true.

    Better get a MBP later. Not now. (Am using a 20" iMac Intel). Eyeing a MBP.

    How the MBP looks on the inside: (FYI)

    Sorry, Mac do not support PDAs. You'll need another software to link the 2.

    Missing Sync or something. My advice is you wouldn't want to spend US$30 and try it. It's both a frustrating and slow experience.

    My advice is not to get the cheap MBPs. Unless they let you open up and listen for the sound first. See http://discussions.apple.com/thread....0159&tstart=15

    The whine is normally in the left speaker grille, around the middle. It makes a sound that can be heard when you're in a quiet room. That means an aircon room at home.

    The sound is silenced when you run Photo Booth.

    Use your MBP with dual boot, mac and win, then can use win XP to connect ur PDA
