I will buy used on Ebay, for one. But I am not sure what memory/CPU speed options to consider.

I mostly use if for email, web browsing, but also program sometimes in Angular and even load Windows on Parallels. Sometimes, I do C#.NET development on Visual Studio on Windows.

So, I want a machine that can perform, but have been living with much older MacBook processors without terrible difficulty.

What do you suggest for value and performance?

Thanks

We need to change a Mac Office 2016 user's Mac Office 2016 license from Retail to Office 365. This is because the retail license doesn't have all of the features that the Office 365 license has.

The user who needs this has already been assigned an Office 365 license but at the time he installed Office 2016 on his Mac (around a year ago) the retail license was used.

Is there an easy way of converting the Mac Office 2016 license from Retail to Office 365 or will we need to completely uninstall Office 2016 Retail and then download and install the Mac Office 2016 Office 365 version?

Hi,

Our organization is using Exchange Server 2010 and mail clients include Windows Outlook, Mac mail, iPhone, iPad and Android mobile. A Mac Mail user report that he cannot receive emails and error message appear on his screen:

Mail can't verify the identity of the server "mail.lorsorsors.com".

The certificate for this server is invalid. You might be connecting to a server that is
pretending to be "mail.lorsorsors.com" which could put your confidential information at
risk.

He tried to delete all "mail.lorsorsors.com" certificates in keychain on his iMac but the same error still comes up. The other users are working normally.

Can anyone help?

A customer of mine imported several audio books into iTunes.

Each audio book chapter is saved as an MP3 file.

The problem is that the same audio books were imported several times.

How can I remove the duplicate iTunes audio book files from  iTunes, the user's iPhone X, & authorized computers?

I need to make sure that only the duplicate files are removed and nothing else.

How can this be done?

I have an iPhone SE.  I was on iOS 10.3.3 for a while and was avoiding iOS11 because I'm not too keen on updating to the latest version until I stop hearing the multitude of reports of issues on the latest version.

However, Apple tricked me when I thought I was dismissing/delaying their update and they updated my iPhone overnight.  This was a few weeks ago this happened.  And its just been incredibly frustrating using Messages since that happened.  I've tried restarting my iPhone, deleting a ton of older messages, but the app's performance is just atrocious.

When I am typing a message it lags to produce the word into the message.  When I press send its laggy in sending the message.  When I try to attach pictures there is a delay too.  The scrolling is not terrible, but noticeable lag is there.  I don't see this type of issue on other apps I use on the iPhone, so I believe I've narrowed it down to Messages app.

What can I do to get back to the great app performance I had when on iOS 10.3.3?

My iPhone does regular backups to iCloud.

For some weird reasons, I have forgotten my Iphone Backup Password (Itunes) - It is encrypted.

I tried few ones I have but none worked...

So I deleted my backups , and removed completely everything related to Apple (Bonjour, Apple, Itunes...) ALL of it.
I restarted my PC, reinstalled Itunes, and to my surprise, it again asks for the password !!! (It is ticked by default !!!)

How do I completely clean my PC and restart over with Itunes ?

I rented a movie on itunes and I am trying to transfer it to my ipod classic 6th generation.  The movie says it is HD.  When I try to move it to my ipod it looks like it will transfer and then it moves back to the other column and is not tranferred.  I assume this is because my generation ipod cannot download it.  When I go to itunes on this movie it does show some details of size that shows an sd version that is smaller in size than the hd one.  I can't seem to find this on the itunes page for the movie.  I also see in my purchased area of itunes that you can uncheck the box that says download hd movies if available.  So here is the question, if I delete the movie (not just try to redownload) will I be able to download it again?  Will it show that I purchased it or is it gone?  I want to do this to try and start from scratch and uncheck the box that says download hd movies if avaialble.    Maybe this is not the answer, any ideas?

Thanks

I have two Photo Library files and need to purge them. That's because i have all the pictures I want on disk as a JPG or other format. These are duplicates.

When I plug in my phone or camera. it imports to the library. I export the ones I want. So they are duplicate!

How do I purge these files?

I worry about simply deleting them, unless this is the correct step.

Thanks.

and I need it to highlight duplicates and make it easy to purge duplicates.

I have 48GB clogging my disk with pictures and think I have many duplicates.  Know many images exist in both the Photo Gallery AND on my disk. And often there are multiple copies in both places.

What kind of automation is there I can use to save disk space and not spend time going through each picture. I really do not have the time, but I want:

1) grouping by person to be an option, and will train the system later, when I have time
2) remove from disk when safely stored in this program

Can I use Photo Gallery on the Mac for this?

Shall I consider the Google program, the name of which I forget?

Thanks.

I had created metadata tags for all of my photos before I had them imported into photos for the Mac. I would like to auto create albums based on the tags in the photos.

I know I can do this with SmartAlbums, but those don’t transfer to mobile or other Macs so I need real albums.

I was thinking with AppleScript I could do something but not proficient there.  Maybe created the Smart Albums from the tags then create albums from all the smart albums?

I have a MacBook with OS X 10.7.5
I'm trying to download Apple Configurator and it says I need at least 10.12.5.

I tried running software update on the MacBook and it says it has the latest version OS... so I'm assuming that 10.7.5 is the latest the hardware will support.

Does anyone know of somewhere to download an older version of Apple Configurator that will run on my OS.
My ultimate goal is to configure an IPAD in a very specific way... which is supposedly (as per those on EE) done with Apple Configurator.
Just to clarify.... this is my first Mac computer.   So please be gentle.  :o)
Thanks in advance.

I recently found a bunch of my cds of music I've gathered over a couple decades.  I have imported them all into my Macbook's iTunes.  I looked for a short time to see if iTunes can do what I want, but it seems like the files have to be physically on the devices to do this.  Or I have to turn on Home Sharing.  Meh.  Not really a solution I'm looking for.  I didn't see an option to put them in the cloud and then stream to my devices?  Did I miss that?

Ideally, I would like to put the files in the cloud and then access those songs from my devices.  Essentially, I'm asking for a way to stream my music, right?  I'm new to Plex and imagine that can do what I want it to if I install the Plex client on all my devices and buy Plex Pass, but wanted to know if there is another option I should look into?  
What have you used and recommend?

(If you've experience with Plex Pass please share your experience!)

I have a Macbook, iPhone, Apple TV, Roku and iPad.

Thank you for looking.

I have one of the latest version of iOS on an iPhone 7 and have 7 email accounts working fine under the iPhone's email app. But I can not add the 8th email account, and wonder why not?

I got to Settings > Mail but do not see the + plus sign, which I recall was how to add a new account. Am I missing something?

Am I limited to 7 accounts?

At the very top of Settings, I see two Alerts, which might be the problem?

"Update Apple ID Settings" has a red circle with a "1" inside. I try and try to resolve that, without success. I am told to log in rom another device to iCloud, which I do. But the warning remains...

I also have a warning for "Finish Setting Up Your iPhone", a second red circle with a "1" inside But I do not want to set up Apple Pay.

So, with this can you suggest my next step? I really need to get another email to appear in the Mail app for the iPhone.

Thanks.
