SDMUG Presents… Tips & Tricks, including New Life for Legacy Mac Pros

February 7, 2018 @ 6:45 pm - 8:45 pm

| Free

TT_09MacProOn February 7th, the SDMUG focuses on Tips and Tricks to make your Mac run faster and more reliably. Included in that is the use of utilities and what they can and cannot do. We’ll discuss cloning, backups, restoring files, fixing directories, measuring bandwidth speeds and the performance of your own computer, and more. 

We will also have on hand a recently modified 2009 Mac Pro, now running dual 12-core 3.46GHz processors, 48GB RAM, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX980 Ti 6GB graphics card (capable of dual 4K monitors!), an OWC Accelsior 960GB SSD card and OS 10.13.3, and four internal hard drives – YES, it can be done. See how this compares to a 27″ 5K iMac. And no, you don’t need to be a super-techie to do this. With the low cost availability of 2009-2012 Mac Pros, you can be money ahead and have a Mac that’s reliable, super-expandable and fast!

The San Diego Macintosh User Group meets on the FIRST Wednesday of each month. Our meetings are FREE!

Our meetings are sponsored by the Mediterranean Kitchen Lounge — (858) 524-4741 — across the courtyard from the presentation room. Mike, the proprietor, has agreed to host the SDMUG meetings so we can continue meeting in the Pyramid Building! Let’s return the favor by grabbing a snack or a full meal there when you attend our meetings. The food is very good, it’s affordable and there’s plenty of selection. Be sure to thank him on behalf of the SDMUG too.

Your RSVP through our MeetUp page is appreciated.
