    Hi there everybody,

    My new macbook pro with retina display just arrived en the first thing that i noticed was the missing notification centre.

    It might be a stupid question but where can i activate the Notification centre?

    And since this is my first iOS x device... Could something maybe give me some tips of things i definitely should do and definitely shouldnt do?

    All tips are very welcome!

    Thanks in advance.

    Depending on when your MacBook Pro was made and boxed, it may have OS X Lion installed (rather than Mountain Lion, of which Notification Center is a part).

    If that's the case, you'll be able to get a free upgrade to Mountain Lion in the Mac App Store.

    Hi Wiznet,

    Thanks for the guides and the quick answer. But when i swipe like you said all that happends is that my homescreen moves a bit to the left .. No notification centre is appearing.

    Is there some setting i should activate?

    I got the latest version op mountain lion on my macbook.

    i hope to hear something of you

    When you go to System Preferences (Systeemvoorkeuren) can you see a Preference Pane called Notifications (Berichtgeving)?
    How about an icon for Notifications in the Menu Bar at the top of your screen?

    Have you checked if other elements of the Mountain Lion OS are absent or is it only Notifications?

    (BTW Since your MBP is brand new you can arrange for Apple Support to call you directly in NL.)

    Thanks for all the tips.

    After some searching, at least for me as unexperienced iOS user, i found out that my device wasn't running on Mountain Lion at all...:confused:

    I assumed it was because its like 2 days old. But never mind. I filled in a form on the apple site to apply for a free upgrade.

    Thanks for all the tips. It was a nice welcom to this forum.

    Topic can be closed imo...

    iOS is for iPhone, iPod and iPad.

    In Macs the os is OSX (it used to be Mac OSX).

    Clic on the Apple logo, then clic on "About this mac" and you can see which osx you have.

    Mac OS X 10.7 = Lion
    OS X 10.8 = Mountain Lion

    If you've been around here long, or if you do some research you find everyone lamenting the iOSification of Mac OSX. You just called it iOSX.
