Why I Adore My Apple MacBook Air Laptop Along With Snow Leopard 10.5.6

Wed, 09 Jun 2010 05:32:44 GMT

With all the hypes and marketing brainwashing, finally I got a copy of Apple Mac OS X Version Snow Leopard 10.5.6

The installation was standard like the previous version but there was no Archive and Install option available and it went straight to upgrade my existing OS. I was worried. After more than a hour, I heard the Mac 'ding' sound and I ran toward the screen looking forward for a safe upgrade. I was glad that my Air laptop was successfully upgraded.

The first thing I did was to checked my hard disk storage space. To my amazement, 10.6 gave me back almost 13GB of storage space. I was worried again if my video and other files were deleted during the upgrade. Double checking again and again, I was so delighted that Snow Leopard 10.6 saved so much storage space. One thumb up!

The overall performance of my Air Laptop increased significantly. I could feel the speed. Everything I did was so much faster, applications loaded faster, Dashboard displayed faster, Spaces switched faster and the list could go on. I quickly restarted the OS to test the startup speed. The performance was over my expectation, at least two times faster than 10.5. Another thumb up!

Chinese language input on Multi-Touch. This was the main reason that enticed me to installed Snow Leopard. The Chinese input with Multi-Touch was first introduced on iPhone and iPod Touch. Combining keystrokes and keyboard input, now I could simply used it on my Air to enhance my writing. Three thumbs up already!

The most intensive Parallels Desktop 4.0 with Windows XP SP3 loaded in Snow Leopard. Another delighted discovery, my Windows XP was up and running two times faster than previously with 10.5. With Snow Leopard 10.6, I reclaimed a hefty lot of processor speed. For this, one big thumb up!

There were many more enhancements Snow Leopard offered. For me, These four reasons were more than enough to justify my upgrade. Four thumbs up for MacBook Air laptop running on Snow Leopard 10.6, the experience was awesome.

How To Optimize Your Apple Macbook Battery

Tue, 08 Jun 2010 05:41:23 GMT

Optimize your Apple Macbook battery settings in Energy Saver preferences to increase battery life.

  1. From the Apple menu, choose System Preferences.

  2. From the View menu, choose Energy Saver.

  3. Click Show Details.

  4. Choose Battery or Battery Power from the "Settings for" pop-up menu.

  5. Choose Longest or Better Battery Life from the Optimize Energy Settings pop-up menu.
These settings will put the hard disk to sleep whenever possible and reduce the computer's microprocessor performance in order to maximize its battery life.

If you are using intensive mac applications, you may wish to modify or change the settings so the microprocessor performance is no longer reduced.

Set your screen brightness to the lowest comfortable level

Press the F1 (dimmer) and F2 (brighter) keys to dim the screen until the brightness is as low as possible and the screen is still comfortable to look at.

Turn off unused features and technologies.

Just as you would turn off the lights in an unoccupied room, turning off unused features and technologies can help maximize your battery life, too. Here are a few suggestions:

  • Eject CDs and DVDs you're no longer using. Every so often, the optical drive spins up to read CDs or DVDs. This consumes a small amount of power.

  • Disconnect peripherals when you're not using them. Connected peripherals, such as printers and digital cameras, can draw power from your battery even when you're not using them.
If you're not in a location where you need to use AirPort or Bluetooth, you can turn them off to save power.

To turn off AirPort:

  1. From the Apple menu, choose System Preferences.

  2. From the View menu, choose Network.

  3. From the Show selection, choose Network Port Configuration.

  4. Uncheck Airport from the list.

  5. Click Apply Now.
To turn off Bluetooth in Mac OS X 10.2 or later:

  1. From the Apple menu, choose System Preferences.

  2. From the View menu, choose Bluetooth.

  3. Click the Settings tab.

  4. Click Turn Bluetooth Off.
