As the arrival of Windows 8 draws ever nearer, it's not surprising to see the debut of a flurry of devices featuring the new OS. There's no doubt a great deal is riding on Windows 8, but it remains to be seen whether consumers will take to its cross-device approach or not, as usability experts have pointed out. I've already written at some length about the emerging class of Linux-powered PCs that have been hitting the market in recent months, and recently two more have appeared.
First uncovered by Notebook Italia on Monday, both of the new Asus laptops can be ordered with Microsoft's operating system or with Canonical's popular open source Linux distribution.
PCWorld helps you navigate the PC ecosystem to find the products you want and the advice you need to get the job done. The Palos Verdes Library District is pleased to announce participation in a pilot project funded by the California State Library to offer Chromebooks within its libraries, beginning December 3, 2012. Chromebooks are laptops that only use Google Chrome as their browser and operating system, and are fast, secure and simple to use.  All of the Chromebook operations take place using the Chrome web browser and web applications either through a user’s free Google account or in a “guest” mode – for those without Google accounts. Chromebooks can create and share documents with Google Drive, play songs and movies with Google Play and video chat with Hangouts, all available at no charge.  In addition, the Chrome Web Store offers thousands of free apps, themes and extensions. Patrons 14 years & older will be able to borrow a Chromebook for up to 2 hours to use within the library. If a Chromebook is damaged but repairable, the patron will be charged the cost of the repair plus a $75 processing fee. Use of the Chromebooks requires access to either a Wi-Fi Internet connection or a 3G cellular data connection. There is no printing currently available and no peripheral equipment (mouse, power cord, etc.) will be issued for use with the Chromebooks while they are restricted to in-library use. The company has said that the public beta will only open to the first million applicants so you better sign up now if you haven’t already. For starters, the public beta program is voluntary, so don’t expect any compensation from Apple for your participation. Jim Dalrymple of The Loop has learned a few interesting facts related to the public beta during his meeting earlier this week with Apple representatives. Installing the public beta requires a Mac running OS X Mavericks, available free of charge on the Mac App Store as a 5.32GB download. The public Yosemite beta is the same version released to developers on Monday. Both the public beta and the final version coming this Fall will be free to download. You can upgrade right through all the public betas into the final release through the software update mechanism built-in to OS X. Apple will, however, update the developer version of Yosemite more frequently over the next few months than the public beta version. To leave the program, visit the Leave Program page and follow the instructions to remove your Apple ID from the OS X Beta Program. Although the latest Yosemite beta is surprisingly stable (for a beta), Apple advises against installing it on your work machine because things can go wrong and you don’t want your precious data be held hostage of beta hiccups. You can perform a clean install of Yosemite or, preferably, deploy it on a separate partition, which will allow you to dual-boot Mavericks and Yosemite on a single Mac.


According to Apple, wait until the final version of OS X Yosemite is available as you’ll be able to install it over your current beta installation. If you must remove the beta software from your computer, you will need to erase, install, and restore the Time Machine backup of Mavericks that you created before you installed the OS X Yosemite Beta. Any changes to your files and documents since you installed the OS X Yosemite Beta will not be preserved when restoring your Mavericks backup, so be sure to copy any new or changed files before you begin restoring from your Mavericks backup.
ArsTechnica and The Verge have exhaustive hands-on articles on the software so give them a read to learn more, or consult out own archive of Yosemite articles.
Log in to your Yosemite OS, plug in your Mavericks Install USB Device, go to system preferences, hit Startup Volume, choose your Mavericks USB Device and hit restart.
Normally you can still download Mavericks via the AppStore on your Mac with Yosemite installed.
I still stand by the fact that this is the most stable beta release of an OS I’ve had the please of testing.
Resetting the EFI-Password by your self (changing RAM etc.) does not work anymore with 2011 or newer models.
For those who want to install it I would recommend creating a 50GB partition if you plan to use it heavily so you can delete it later on when it’s released to the public. I’ve had the developer versions running since day 1 on a partition and it was the smartest choice due to the amount of bugs it had and still has. Basically it reset small bits of semi important data (boot up chime volume, boot up disk, etc) .
How will the battery be on a macbook air(latest) after installing the Public beta of Yosemite?Are there any heating issues? It won’t change the battery itself, but how the system reads the battery does differ between betas and GM releases. What's particularly interesting about these two new laptops from Asus, in fact, is that they'll be available with either Windows 8 or Ubuntu Linux--whichever the buyer prefers. If the program expands to allow use outside the library PVLD will develop appropriate policies regarding the loan of peripheral devices and equipment.
When it’s ready, Apple will email you a redemption code to download and install the most recent OS X Yosemite Beta through the Mac App Store. No reformat or restore will be required to upgrade from a beta to the final Yosemite version. I’m also getting a grey screen with a lock and password request when I do Command+R or Option on boot and I never set this.
If you bought a used one it is possible that you have a EFI-Password set from the pre-owner. If you don’t use FileVault then that lock most likely means you have an EFI-Password set. I can do that simply by going to my purchases in the AppStore and hitting Download next to Mavericks. I installed yosemite a couple of weeks ago and made a 30gb partition so i can run mavericks and yosemite.


I would never recommend using it as your main OS but if you have 15+ GB of space you can probably create another partition to install Yosemite onto. You have to take it to a apple store with your proof of purchase and explain them that the EFI-Password must be reset. The data itself is setting for starting up the little stuff, it’s all fine and dandy when it work, but when it gets currupted, that when real bad stuff happens. If you turn on iCloud Drive service under a beta build, it won’t take you to your regular iCloud services. Some people need to, a) Grow a brain, and b) Grow the fuck up and stop being whiny little bitches when they make mistakes, and cry on forums like this one, and learn to take criticism for the dumb things they do, and if that includes you, then fine. PVLD will not purchase 3G data access for use by patrons; however patrons are welcome to sign up and pay for 3G access on the Chromebooks themselves.
I cannot go to any boot screen on start up because it immediately goes to the locked screen asking for that firmware password. It is impossible to reset that password without certain tools only Apple Employees have access to. Many apps on yosemite still don’t work so unless you want to deal with restoring and time machine i suggest partitioning your hard drive from between 30-50 gb. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this – 4 weeks past. While there isn’t a clear link to it causing your firmware password, it is one if the only things you can do right now.
As i am not a heavy user and all i do is browse the web is it ok to upgrade to yosemite without installing on a partition ? If you ever Google my problem, you’ll see that I am not the only one this has happened to. Sorry you don’t like to hear the hard message but in life, you have to accept the things you do unto yourself. If patrons purchase more 3G access than they can use on the Chromebook any 3G left on returned Chromebooks will automatically be donated to the next user. However, I JUST recently installed Yosemite by doing the same exact thing and it did not have the password. I just created a second partition, installed Yosemite, and then deleted the first partition. What you’ve done is so idiotic, and you want to do even more stupid things to get out of it?

    Heard the expression 'look alive!' as a wannabe photographer who's.
