We’ve moved to the new CNET Mac Forums!
For nearly a decade MacFixIt has provided free forums for Mac users at MacFixItForums.com. Today we are introducing new Mac Forums in the CNET Forums. These changes are a direct result of our acquisition by CNET and allow us to provide a broader range of coverage, in addition to drawing on a new pool of knowledge and resources. As before, we will continue to provide timely and relevant commentary on Mac-related hardware and software issues and will be adding new features we hope you'll enjoy and appreciate. For additional information about this change please visit this thread: http://www.macfixitforums.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/475621
