    Macs can have their own special brand of problems.
    Apple’s support site has effective forums, but sometimes they can turn into complaint centers where everybody acknowledges having the problem, but no one seems to have a solution.

    CNet’s gets around this by taking select Apple forum questions and answering them on its site. In one post, a Mac user wrote on an Apple forum that he was experiencing problems with Time Machine backups. Most of the thread’s other users chimed in only to say that they had the same problem. MacFixIt then stepped in and offered its solution.

    In addition to an active forum, MacFixIt also offers useful tutorials with digestible instructions, and explanations, on everything from sleep problems to reinstalling your system.

    Of course, it’s better to find advice for your exact Mac.’s Q.& A. section is broken down by model, so if you’re dealing with MacBook Pro problems, you can go to that section.
