    2020 MBP 13" hanging on security settings

    I noticed that my 2020 i5 / 16 / 512 MBP hangs when I press the security and privacy option in settings and pressing the lock after that, totaling to about a minute of wait time. Does this have to do with the T2 security chip? FileVault is disabled.

    TG Pro (Lightweight) Tutorial: Stop Burning your Lap

    I filmed a short tutorial on using TG Pro for new Mac users. This app helps keep temperatures low by increasing Macs' fan rates. I've found that setting the fans a bit faster by default remains inaudible yet boosts performance and more importantly, comfort if using the Macbook on your lap...

    Late 2020 16" MacBook Pro Predictions

    I was hoping to buy a future-proofed & maxed-out MacBook Pro (with the best GPU) for starting university this fall. I felt the 16" released back in November was only a warm-up for something really big for 2020. I imagined a no-bezels miniLED 14.1" display with a new deca-core i9 CPU, paired with...

    Buying genuine MacBook Pro battery

    So my MBP is showing the 'Service Recommended' sign. Where I live, we only have any limited options for Apple products and almost always get ripped off. So I thought of getting a relative to buy the battery from some store or website in USA and get it here with him. Apple doesn't manufacture or...

    MacBook Pro 16" Battery Drain

    So I just received my MacBook Pro 16" this week and I have noticed that when I close the lid and then open it back up the battery will be drained, almost as though the machine never went into a deep sleep. With my 15" MacBook Pro from 2015, I close the lid and it goes into a deep sleep and...

    MBPro 13" i7/32/512 vs i7/32/(1/2TB) SSD speed - Apps developing.

    Upgrading from MBPro 15" 2017 (i7 2.9, 1TB)... I decided to go with the 13" for developing (iOS, web, Android). The screen size really does not matter because I will be using it connected to external monitor (work, home) for 90% of the time - mostly closed / sometimes coding. Portability, fast...

    Another Success Story (fixing 2010 MBP)

    I bought a used 2010 MBP base model that had been dropped on the power cable. Paid $20 USD. After opening it up I breathed a HUGE sigh of relief that the power PCB was separate from the logic board! I'm guessing that is because that particular part must require replacement more often than the...
