What is the Recovery Disk Assistant
If you want to protect your Mac using OS X Lion or OS X Mountain Lion, the Recovery Disk Assistant creates a Recovery System on an external drive.

What is the MagSafe Adapter?
The power adapter that comes with a MacBook, is known as the MagSafe Adapter because it uses a magnetic connection. This adapter is designed to quickly disconnect from your notebook in the case of an accident (say, somebody trips over the cable, and so on). As the adapter is magnetic, it may attract small metal particles, and these particles can cause electrical shortages. To reduce the effect, the MagSafe Adapter comes with a plastic housing that fits over the end of the connection, and you should therefore use the clear plastic housing over the MagSafe tip where you’re carrying around the adapter. Most Mac models have a LED (light-emitting diode) on its power cord. The LED has two states, that’s orange to signify that the MacBook is charging, and green to signify that the device is fully charged.

What to do if the MacBook Batteries run-time is low or if my battery isn’t charging or won’t charge to 100%?
Identify what the battery life should be for the product you’re using. See our text Mac Laptop Batteries for more details. Note however that occasionally, the battery may not show a full charge (100%) in OS X, even after the power adapter has been connected for an extended period of time. The battery may appear to stop charging between 93 and 99 percent. This is normal and this behavior will help to prolong the overall life of the battery.
What to do if the battery isn’t recognized by the Mac?
If the battery in your MacBook, MacBook Air, or MacBook Pro is fully drained, the battery will put itself into a low power state to preserve its ability to charge. Connect your Mac Notebook to AC power and allow it to charge for at least five minutes. If the connect to power screen persists after charging for five minutes, reset the SMC.
What to do if the low battery warning doesn’t display?
The low battery warning is generally reported at or under 10 percent or 15 percent (Mac portables using OS X Mavericks v10.9 or later display the low battery warning when the battery has approximately 10 min. of power remaining. Earlier versions or OS X report it at 15% or less). If you can’t see or hear a warning when your battery has a low charge, check if the battery menu bar icon is enabled. To enable the battery status menu: Open System Preferences. Then click Energy Saver. Next, enable the “Show battery status in menu bar” check box to display the battery status menu item.
What is a Unibody Notebook?
Most devices use an internal frame, with external parts attached to it. All of Apple’s notebook models feature unibody casing, where the external frame of the case houses the internal components. The unibody design enables Apple notebooks to be stronger and lighter than its rivals’ models.
Why did Apple Inc. recall MacBook in 2007?
Indeed, in February 2007, Apple Inc. recalled MacBook. The reason was that the graphics card and hard drive caused the computer to overheat, forcing the unit to shut down randomly.
