My new MacBook arrived today, but it looks like I'm going to have to send it back for a replacement. After doing some basic configuration I put it through its paces by playing a scopitone off of YouTube. Halfway through it hard crashed with this video freakout. A shame, since it boots so fast.

Change of ideas, change of computers. This could be the main idea of this article. In fact, this is the story of a Mac notebook from my view point. I used many different computers with different operating systems in my life. I was doing great with Windows XP and Vista operating systems recently. The computers I used were not equipped with best hardware of those days. At least they were operating well for me. I used to restart the systems only when I installed a new driver, otherwise they used to operate nonstop for many days.

Security of my systems was quite important for me. To block hackers I installed best antivirus programs and I used to install new updates before automatic update did it.

Everything changed on August 2008 for me. I had been old me so far. I was looking for a file in my computer, then I realized that my files were being deleted. Nervously, I touched the on/off button of my power supply and the deep silence took over.

I couldn't accept the defeat, of course. I took my hdd out and tried to clean it in another computer. No luck, there wasn't a sign of a virus. I had to do something. First, considering the risk of losing all files, I thought of formatting the hdd and installing Windows again but I would need to re-install all the programs I have and it could be time consuming. In fact, I was seeing some MacBook advertisements in internet and admired the design of these computers. I had a plan. I was going to buy one of them and say hello to MacBook as a deadly Windows user.

I have never thought that I am going to use a Mac in my life. Now, I would like to talk about MacBook Air. Eight months have been passed since I joined Mac world, and I deserve talking about it after using it this much.

The thickest point on its body is 0.8 inches. We can say that it is a mini laptop. It has similarities with other MacBook computers. Some of the great features are backlight display, ambiance light sensor and a touchpad sensitive to hand movements. When using this touchpad if you want to rotate a picture you can do it with rotating your finger.

When we talk about what is inside this thin case; 1.6 GHz or 1.8GHz Intel Core 2 Duo CPU welcomes us. This CPU was designed to be used in thin cases by Intel. Besides, 2GB Ram and 1.8" 80 gb hdd are the standard features. Although Bluetooth and 802.11n are expected features, lack of an optical driver was a surprise. However, Macbook gained space and energy thanks to lack of an optical driver, and it still can work with external optical drivers.

Another good side of MacBook is that a full scale keyboard had been integrated to it. It means, writers (like me) or students who are bored of compressed notebook keyboards are going to like it. Anyway, it doesn't mean MacBook hasn't got bad sides. USB card slot, Firewire, Internal Ethernet jack and Express card slot are missing.

Apart from those, I really enjoy using this computer. It is incredibly thin, fast and delicious. Battery life is long enough. Quality of display is unquestionable if it is compared to other similar laptops. As a former deadly Windows user, after having a chance to use MacBook Air I can say that I'm not planning to go back to other systems again.

DVD, also known as Digital Video Disc or, the much less common but correct term Digital Versatile Disc, is an optical disc storage media format, and was invented and developed by Philips, Sony, Toshiba, and Time Warner in 1995. Its main uses are video and data storage. DVDs are of the same dimensions as compact discs (CDs), but are capable of storing almost seven times as much data.

Variations of the term DVD often indicate the way data is stored on the discs: DVD-ROM (read only memory) has data that can only be read and not written; DVD-R and DVD+R (recordable) can record data only once, and then function as a DVD-ROM; DVD-RW (re-writable), DVD+RW, and DVD-RAM (random access memory) can all record and erase data multiple times. The wavelength used by standard DVD lasers is 650 nm; thus, the light has a red color.

However, I found many people want to know how to import AVCHD to QuickTime Mac as below.

Q1: How do I rip video from DVD on Macbook to edit?

I’d like to rip video off of a DVD to edit it but am having trouble figuring it out. I download Mac the Ripper but it seems this program just copies all the data files to be able to burn a new DVD. I’m just interested in the Video and Audio to import into a editing program to edit it down. Can anyone give me some suggestions?

Q2: How do I stream a DVD from my Macbook to my iPad?

I’d like to watch my DVD’s on my iPad without importing/capturing/syncing blah blah blah. Can I put a DVD movie in my DVD player on my Macbook Pro and ‘stream’ it wirelessly on my home network to my iPad? I understand you can do this with the Macbook Air laptops. Come on Apple, I MUST be able to do this?! Right?

For resolving these problems, I search a tool— DVD to Macbook Converter is specially designed for Mac users to rip DVD to the popular video formats such as MP4, MOV, DV, M4V and extract DVD audio to MP3, WAV, M4A, AIFF. Those formats can be playable on various devices such as DVD to Macbook, Macbook Pro, QuickTime, iTunes, iPod, iPhone, Final Cut Express, FCP, Apple TV etc. That is to say, you can enjoy DVD videos in lots of place at any time if you like. I hope it is helpful for us.
