    Apple Reports Disappointing Mac Sales Despite Retina MacBook Release: 4 Million Units Sold In Q3 2012

    Analysts have been sharply divided in providing estimates for Apple’s third quarter earnings report. And it would appear that this time, predictions of a mild third quarter were correct. Apple saw a bit of a plateau in Mac sales, with 4 million Macs, 26 million iPhones, and 17 million iPads sold in Q3 2012. That’s compared to last quarter’s sales of 4 million Macs, 35.1… Read More

  • MacBook Pro With Retina Display Shipping Estimate Improves To 1-2 Weeks

    MacBook Pro With Retina Display Shipping Estimate Improves To 1-2 Weeks

    The line for a MacBook Pro with Retina Display just got a bit shorter. The US Apple Store now pegs the new MBP’s shipping estimate at 1-2 weeks. The MacBook Pro with Retina Display launched with much fanfare in early June. Apple called it the “most beautiful computer we have ever made.” The model quickly sold out, pushing shipping times to 3-4 weeks, which later fell to… Read More

  • The MacBook Pro Strikes Back (With Retina Power)

    The MacBook Pro Strikes Back (With Retina Power)

    It was nearly two years ago that I said goodbye to my MacBook Pro. I loved the device, but the new MacBook Air was that good. My Pro — which was only six months old at the time! — seemed like total overkill for my computing needs. The Air was finally fast enough to use on a daily basis, and it was (obviously) significantly thinner and lighter. It was a no-brainer in my mind: Air… Read More

    Behold & Drool: Pictures Of The Retina MacBook Pro

    It’s simple really. The new MacBook Pro with the “Retina” display is something you have to see to believe. Perhaps you were watching the live coverage of the keynote today and thinking it’s not a big deal. It’s a very big deal. Once you see this screen, you will forever be ruined. You will not be able to use another screen. The effect is similar to the one we… Read More

    First Pics Of The Redesigned MacBook Pro

    Apple unveiled the next generation of the MacBook Pro today. Encased in a thinner chassis, this MacBook Pro is a serious machine with a Core i7 CPU, a Retina display and reported seven hour battery life. The new models hit the Apple Stores today but Apple had several on display here at the Moscone Center today. However, they’re behind glass, not allowing for many snap judgments or… Read More

  • Retina Ready: Apple’s New Year’s Resolution?

    Retina Ready: Apple’s New Year’s Resolution?

    In a few weeks, Apple will unveil the next generation iPad, John Packowski of AllThingsD confirms today. If history (and carrier code) is any indication, it should go on sale shortly after that. Maybe even just a few days later. And that’s interesting because it doesn’t give developers a lot of time to prepare. And they’ll want to prepare for the higher resolution… Read More

    Components Spied For 15-Inch Air-Style MacBook Pro

    Habitual component-stream eavesdropper Digitimes says that “a small volume of components” that fit the spec for a 15-inch ultra-thin notebook have shipped, and March of 2012 is their estimate for full-scale device shipping. We’ve talked about Macbook Air DNA being injected into the Pro line, and this is just more evidence of that. The latest update to the notebook line was… Read More

    Apple Quietly Tweaks MacBook Pro Line-up, Leaves Prices Unchanged

    Apple has updated its MacBook Pro offering on the Apple Store, reports This Is My Next, after 9to5Mac earlier leaked details of the notebook product line-up refresh. Don’t expect to see spectacular changes, as the tweaks are relatively minor. They include faster processors, more storage and a number of small graphics updates. 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
