      1. It is a luxury for sure. The screen is as stunning as everyone describes. It shines most when I stream 4k sample videos from youtube. Lots of interesting visuals there. At moments I really am “stunned” by the sharpness and clarity of the video. I hope that there will be movies like this available for the computer someday.

        I’m already pissed because I just found out Netscape won’t let you look at 4K movies on the iMac 5k because of DRM.

        Is it important to the work I do? No. Maybe if I were making 4k video for public consumption. I was going to buy a computer anyway, so I just bought the iMac 5k which is like buying a 4K monitor and getting a free computer.

        All the other retina stuff is standard. Sharp screen, beautiful typography and so on.

    1. Yup! Do at least one clone (& preferably 2) of your existing boot SSD or HD first. Carbon Copy Cloner is worth its weight in Gold!

      HDs are so cheap now days that there is no reason to not be totally safe.

    1. I have found the large majority of Air Play issues are on the router’s end. Be sure your router’s firmware is up to date and restart the router if the issue persists.

  1. I have family and friends on multiple Mac’s, Macbook pro, Older Mac Pro, Mac Mini, never saw any wi-fi issues.. Did see the multiple shared mac listings, but 10.1 and a router reboot fixed that.. I am sure they are annoying for those that had them, but was never had an issue

  2. Holy shit what was this ?!? I just did the update, and my MacBook Air did not even restart, no indication of it!! But it does show 10.10.2 now in “About this Mac” !!
    I had no beta before that.
    no probs so far, as before.

      1. The screen didn’t go dark, and there was no startup chime although the volume was turned up. That was on my MacBook Air only.
        My iMac did fully restart after the update.

    1. Most likely this is an issue on your university’s end, especially as it works at home. School wifi is notoriously bad. There are many reasons for this and many of them can not be fixed because of the nature of the network.

    1. Yes, Mail is still not fixed, and never will be….It has been broken so long and so often, it is absurd. The day that I no longer have to switch between sent and inbox to have the blue dots go away will be a blessing, but it will not happen. The day mail starts sending clean HTML messages and not half baked plain text and html in one message that no other mail client understands will be a blessing, but it will never happen. That is just the Apple way, and that is that.

      The day the Mac is a serious alternative on the office workflow without these sorts of of irritations, ALL machines in our office will be Mac. So far, only the people who need a laptop have them, mainly using them for RDP to……Windows…ahhhhhhhh How I hate Windows……

      Please Apple, if anyone can, you can! I’ll help……

      Other bugs also unsolved, but I have to admit they were not claimed to be solved so I have hopes for .3

        1. Thanks for the tip, but I have tried that. I think it has to do with the Exchange sync. I have set up exchange to the best of my knowledge and do not think that is it, for it doe not connect to exchange to check read because it is instant, just the changing of the view does the trick.
