    Warning: The Latest MacBook Air Packs A Less Powerful Version Of Thunderbolt

    Apparently not all Thunderbolt ports are created equally. Anadtech discovered that the Thunderbolt chip within the latest MacBook Air is not the same found in the current MacBook Pro. The Air’s version packs less power and throughput resulting in less abilities. Hope you weren’t planning on hooking up two of those new fancy Thunderbolt Displays. Read More

    MacBook Air Killers? First Batch Of PC Ultrabooks To Carry An Ultra-Pricetag

    Ultrabooks are supposed to be the PC’s answer to the MacBook Air. These notebooks are said to rock hardware platforms very similar to the Air’s but, you know, run Windows instead of OS X. The first crop from HP and Asus will likely hit during the fourth quarter of 2011 but won’t be Air-killers right away. They’re going to be too expensive. Read More

  • Next MacBook Pros To Feature Air DNA?

    Next MacBook Pros To Feature Air DNA?

    The Sandy Bridge update to the Air line has been enough to make some feel the lightweight laptop is ready for prime time (I’m convinced, personally), but it’s still not enough for some. MacBook Pro users are accustomed to more storage, more screen real estate, and a greater number of ports. If rumors are to be believed, the best of both worlds might be on its way, with Air-style… Read More

  • Teardown Of New 13″ MacBook Air Finds Almost No Differences From Old Model

    Teardown Of New 13″ MacBook Air Finds Almost No Differences From Old Model

    The traditional “splaying of the device” has been performed successfully on the new MacBook Air by the teardown experts and hand models at iFixit. The most user-relevant finding appears to be that the SSD module is user-replaceable — i.e. Apple hasn’t seen fit to physically bond it to the motherboard. Yet. Apart from that and some minor layout changes to accommodate… Read More

    The MacBook Is Dead. Long Live The (New) MacBook Air.

    “At this point, I’m thinking Apple should just replace the standard MacBook with the Air.” Yes, I just quoted myself. But I have a good reason. I wrote that on October 21 of last year, after one day of playing with the just-released new MacBook Air. Today, 9 months later, Apple is listening. The MacBook is dead. Long live the MacBook Air. The fact of the matter is that this… Read More

  • A Mid-Summer Trip To The Apple Rumor Mill

    A Mid-Summer Trip To The Apple Rumor Mill

    It’s almost that time of year again, friends. New movies are terrible, kids are sucking down popsicles and my office is like a moist toaster oven. It’s nearly back to school time! That means in our little trivial world that it’s time for new gadgets and the Internet rumor mill is lining up quite a big showing from Apple. Of course it’s always this way. The rumors… Read More

  • Rumor Puts MacBook Air Refresh In Mid-July


    Impatient for those new MacBook Airs we know are coming? It’ll be a couple more weeks, if whispers heard by 9 to 5 Mac are to be believed. The upcoming earnings call on the 19th corroborates this; Apple was rumored to be waiting until they could ship with Lion, and it may be that they’ll just have nailed down that date come mid-July… but not quite yet.

  • Macbook Air Sell-Outs Point To Upcoming Refresh

    Another day, another sold-out Mac product that points to a refresh. This time Best Buy is the culprit, noting that current MBA notebooks are not shipping from its stores. This usually means that a refresh is coming within the next few days and is most probably a minor upgrade of little interest to the average user but that will piss people off who just bought an MBA in the last week to no end.

  • Acme Made's New Clutch And Skinny MacBook Sleeves Now Available At Apple Stores

    If you’re in need of a sexy sleeve for your new Sandy Bridge/Thunderbolt MacBook Pro, you might consider picking up one of these from Acme Made.

    Death By Air And Thunderbolt: Is It The End Of The Line For The MacBook?

    As you’re undoubtedly aware by now, tomorrow (in just a few hours, really), Apple is expected to unveil their latest line of laptops. News has already started to trickle out about what’s getting upgraded and what’s changing. Noticeably absent in this talk is the MacBook itself. And that begs the question: is it the end of the line for the product? Simply put: it should be. Read More
