Mac Pro Availability

The Mac Pros as we know them are no longer available, being replaced some time in December by the new black cylindrical high end models. In the meantime if you’d like to grab a standard Mac Pro before they’re all gone, go with Apple Certified refurbished. We’ve had excellent experiences with the refurbished Macs from Apple. Please use our affiliate link since it returns a few dollars to MacLab for the recommendation. You’ll find deals on iMacs, MacBooks Pros, Minis and more.

How to Archive Email

Archiving is important if you use IMAP email (most of us do) to prevent email storage from reaching its limit. If it fills up, you’ll stop receiving mail.

Here’s how to archive email by year, using Apple Mail. This will pull mail from your provider and copy it to your computer in an archive folder. Doing so will allow you to view it on this Mac only and not multiple devices, so archive outdated email only.

Create a Mailbox for the Archived Mail

Select “New Mailbox…” from the Mailbox menu. Set the Location to “On My Mac” and give it a name. For this example, we’ll call it “2012 Archive.” Click “OK.”

Teamwork Made Easy

Kerio Workspace is now Samepage, hosted by Kerio. Grown up and looking fresh and clean. This is much nicer than Apple’s Wiki and easier to use. Goodbye Dropbox for Teams and Google Drive because you can sync files from your Mac.

But Samepage does much more. It allows you to create an Intranet or discussions and projects for your team and clients, all within your web browser. This eliminates the long and winding email trails. With Samepage, you have visual aids and organization that email can’t bring to the table.

Start here to kick the tires and get a free 2GB account. Invite your team and receive up to 10GB for no charge.

Back Up Everything

MacLab now offers a fully monitored backup with unlimited off site storage for a low price of $39 per month. This is the new Unlimited Plan. There are a few differences with this option compared to our standard backup, so contact us for the best choice for your workstation, server or office.

Adobe Creative Cloud

Adobe CS6 is the last version of Creative Suite offered in the traditional sense. From this point forward, Adobe is selling Creative Suite via the Creative Cloud subscription model only. For those unfamiliar with a subscription-based software model, you purchase the right to use the software for a period of time and renew the lease regularly.

For CS3 and CS4 users, Creative Cloud is especially attractive since there is no upgrade path to CS6. But even for CS5 users, Creative Cloud includes the entire Master Collection, far more than Design and Web Premium. Creative Cloud for Teams adds the additional advantage of centralized management of users, a single subscription start/end date and cloud storage.

MacLab is offering Creative Cloud for Teams at a special discounted rate through August of $39.99/month per seat, a discount of $30/month. Purchase an entire year now and save a bundle.
