    My mom sent me her 2013 macbook pro since I only have an iMac and need to travel a lot for school. Does anyone know the process of upgrading hardware in these? I would like to upgrade the ram to at least 16gb (it's 4gb with 2 slots) and possibly the hard drive to 1tb SSD.

    We have a D-link DIR615 router for a townhouse right now. After the umpteenth time of nearly hitting our limit on our internet package, I've upgraded to more than 2x the speed and unlimited bandwidth. The service update will be done next week once the new modem arrives. My question is, since I...

    My dad wants to upgrade the electronics in his old Tele, and replace the pickups, for which he's looking at the Texas Specials. For the wiring, he likes having a lot of control on the guitar, so I'm thinking of replacing the Tone with a Treble/Bass cut stacked pot and adding a cap to the...

    Since I picked up the BC Rich Bich for $100 for the budget challenge I've spent a considerable amount of time with it. After a good cleaning and a little TLC, I tuned it down to where my latest experiments are taking me, drop F#. The 30" scale on this thing is absolutely perfect for what I want...

    Bassist in my band is looking to pimp out his bass a bit. He's got an LTD D6. What do you guys think would be more beneficial, swapping out the preamp or swapping out the pickups? I know this is a bit of a broad question, but bear with me. He's looking specifically for EMG's. What do you guys...

    A few days ago, my son-in-law celebrated his birthday. His wife (my step-daughter) bought him an acoustic guitar for Christmas. In fact, their whole family is jumping into music - my wife and I picked up a pink Uke for the littlest granddaughter, etc. So, since I just bought the Blackstar and...

    My old 120GB Arcade is still working fine, but I'm at the point where I'm constantly uninstalling stuff to install new games. Old games I haven't finished yet, DLC, and XBLA downloaded games tend to chew up space. I've had this one for ages, and would like to snag one of those snazzy new black...

    Hey gents! So I know there are a lot of Mac users over here now so I figured I'd throw this out there and see what the best plan of attack would be. Right now I have a MacBook from 2008 that has OSX 10.5 (Leopard, it was right before Snow Leopard came out IIRC?) and I have a Time Capsule at...

    My carvin cab has seen better days, but overall it's structually in good shape. The speakers are shot, so I'm considering ordering 4 new C90's for it. BUT, since everyone harps about build quality and such, anyone have some input about Carvin cabs? The other option is pick up a 2x12 Recto cab...
