Hey, Thanks for your quick reply.Hey Mate.
Ok To answers your questions.
1. If you have alot of RAM in the machine, it WILL use it to help increase the speed. At the moment i have only this page open in safari, its currently using 2.5GB of my 4GB. Yet mine also shows 93MB Free lol You have t remember iPhoto uses a massive amount of ram to help show the previews all all your photos. How often do you restart your machine ? it should be done every few days cause other wise memory will continue to be full. If you have free RAM, the machine will use that more appose to virtual memory using the hard drive. Make sure all your software & firmware is up to date
2. The Trackpad clicker is very common, replace several trackpad a week. You could remove the bottom plate, but there are special TriLobe or Pentalobe Screws to remove the battery, to gain access to the trackpad adjustment clicking screw thats a T6. JB hifi wont be able to repair the machine, they will tell you to go to a apple repair centre. You could call apple, and see what support they can offer, if the machine is less then 1 year old you will have warranty to cover the trackpad not clicking.
3. DO NOT MANUALLY control the fans, the machine is designed to cool its self. Note that they are no longer "Laptops" BUT notebooks, for the simple fact that the amount of grunt and heat they generate and you cannot handle them being on your lap doing extreme tasks. The CPUs get hot, its what they do, its not uncommon to have the CPU at 110°
Hope that helps a little.
1. Okay, that sounds about right, and I have noticed it about iPhoto.. Also to be honest I don't fully shutdown my computer as often as I probably should.
2. I probably could do it myself, but as long as it is still under warranty, I might as well take it in and get them to fix it instead of risking it myself. Should I put the old ram back in just to make sure? because I have heard of them blaming the ram and therefore not giving the appropriate warranty.
3. Okay, so dont have it on my lap when playing games, or processor hungry apps..? And if i can start the fans early and prevent it getting to 90° or 100°, why shouldn't I? Because when i do play games and start the fan early, it hardly goes over 80°, and to be honest I'm not real keen on letting it reach 110° lol.
Thanks for your help, makes me feel a bit better about it all. lol
