  • New MacBooks Coming In Next Month?

    There is no confirmation of this other than a vague email from a charming New Zealandee to his customers, but it seems that someone let slip that new MacBooks with SSD “hard drives” and Sandy Trail chipsets are in the offing in the next 20-25 days. Considering the guy who sent this presumably sells MacBooks in New Zealand, his advice to “place your order on hold, but also… Read More

  • Did Intel Just Leak The New MacBook Pros?

    Could his beautiful, svelte, and decidedly black laptop be the new Macbook Pro that should land in stores on or around the ides of March or early April? Probably not, but a girl can dream. Why does it look fairly convincing? Well, as 9to5mac points out, Intel has leaked future MacBooks before and there is some evidence of new MacBooks in the pipe for Best Buy and others. Read More

  • iMac And MacBook Pro Refreshes Coming In 1H 2011

    Not exactly the most groundbreaking news, but reports from suppliers (as usual, on tap at Digitimes) indicate that Apple will be launching new MacBook Pros in the first half of 2011 (likely in April, like last time). They also suggest we’ll see a new size of iMac appear. Big? Small? Convertible? Well, probably not convertible. Read More

  • Goodbye, MacBook Pro. The New MacBook Air Is That Good.

    Goodbye, MacBook Pro. The New MacBook Air Is That Good.

    Last Wednesday, I got my hands on one of the new MacBook Airs. I haven’t touched my MacBook Pro since. It’s six months old. RIP. I know that sounds outrageous. Or like hyperbole. But it’s not. When I wrote up my initial thoughts, it was after only a few hours of usage. I hadn’t even used it outside the house yet. But now I have. I’ve used it almost everywhere… Read More

  • Free As A Bird: Initial Thoughts After A Day With The New MacBook Air

    Free As A Bird: Initial Thoughts After A Day With The New MacBook Air

    I’ve done it. I’ve worn the battery completely down on one of the new MacBook Airs. As such, I thought I’d post some initial thoughts about the machine. This isn’t a huge all-encompassing review — I haven’t even used it outside of my apartment yet — but rather my initial thoughts for those of you thinking about rushing out to buy one. All day… Read More

  • What's Apple going to do with a 3×3-cm touchscreen display? New iPod? New MacBook Pro touchpad?

    We have here what appears to be a new touchscreen interface for a Mac. Exactly what type of Mac, or when it’s due, or whether it’s even real, not sure. The leading candidate, however: a touchpad display for the MacBook Pro. Tenterhooks, people, tenterhooks. Read More

  • Replace a MacBook Pro's optical drive with an SSD

    It’s a fact that no one uses optical drives anymore and so why not replace the one in your late-model MBP with something a bit more useful like an SSD. It doesn’t really seem that hard as long you’re comfortable totally disemboweling your MacBook Pro. The SSD and optical drive both use SATA so it’s really plug and play and only requires a special adapter plate to… Read More

  • Video: This is a 22-megapixel MacBook Pro

    And I thought my new monitor was fancy! (It certainly cost enough…) Here we have a plain ol’ MacBook Pro using a series of 28 projectors to create a 22-megapixel display. That works out to 7168×3072. Borderline insane, yes. Read More

  • Opening the Macbook Pro 15-inch Unibody

    The flaymasters at iFixIt have torn down the MacBook Pro 15-inch Unibody, revealing all of its terrible secrets including, but not limited to, a motherboard, an AirPort Express card, and some other stuff. Come to think of it, there are no terrible secrets. Just a bigger battery and new wireless antenna. Read More

  • At last – Apple updates Macbook Pro line

    Ok people, l know this isn’t about European tech startups, but here at TechCrunch Europe towers, we’re just a little excited that Apple has refreshed its MacBook Pro line-up. It’s been a long time coming. Yes, we’ll have to wait for iPad pre-orders, but in the meantime, at least the new Pros are out. If the Apple Store in the UK is now correct ( it looks like it is)… Read More

  • Do the new MacBook Pros forgo raw computing power in favor of battery life? Yup.

    Today’s MacBook Pro refresh left a lot of us feeling, well, bored. The new notebooks aren’t particularly powerful with dual-core Core i5 and Core i7 CPUs along with low-memory GPUs. They really aren’t anything special compared to similarly-priced PCs. Numerous manufacturers offer a PC for around $2000 that comes with quad-core i7’s, 1GB graphics card along with tons of… Read More
