comment Compare Intel Processors - Quad Core vs Dual Core
Nitpick: it's not just the amount of memory in the Graphics card, it's the fact it's actually a discrete graphics card, whereas the Quad Core base doesn't have a separate graphics card. Intel HD Graphics 4600 is built into the CPU chipset.

comment Cut and Paste in Mac OS X's Finder
@CoreDumpError To be fair, "cutting" a file is a dangerous operation. What happens if the power goes out or a software bug freezes the Finder when the file is on the clipboard? What if you change your mind during the operation but have already navigated out of the source folder of the file and forgot where it came from? Having the move be a destination command by holding option is more sensible and safe.

comment Is there any program or way to make Mac OS X's ⌘-tab behave like Windows' alt-tab?
@javadba Um, yes it does. If it doesn't on your machine, you must have a non-standard setup or extension installed. I'm using it now. If you still don't believe me, here's an article explaining the behaviour: "Command-Tab: This activates the menu and switches through applications in order of when they were last accessed. The foremost application will be on the left, and repeatedly pressing the Tab key will go through each application you have open."

comment How can I change my Mac screen resolution without scaling to fit my monitor?
I'm not certain if this will do what you want so I won't add it as an answer, but check out SwitchResX and see if it will do it.

comment How can I change my Mac screen resolution without scaling to fit my monitor?
The bottleneck isn't the number of hardware pixels shown on the screen, it's the number of pixels rendered. You're still rendering only 983,040 pixels. That's why games run significantly faster when the monitor is set to lower resolution.

I'm a bit confused… what would this accomplish? There would be no difference in performance between "letterboxing" it or running the 27" monitor at that resolution.

comment How do you sort files in OS X Finder so folders appear at the top?
Yeah, Mountain Lion has a new "Sort by Kind" feature which will keep folders at top in column view, but will of course sort everything else by kind (pdf, photo, text file, etc.)

comment Do SSD's really last 285 years?
This should be the accepted answer as it is the only one that explains the misconception of what MTBF means.
