  • No Blu-ray on MacBook makes Homer something something?

    No Blu-ray on MacBook makes Homer something something?

    Steve Jobs rubbished Blu-ray yesterday, calling format a “bag of hurt,” no doubt putting a tear in the eye of message boarders everywhere. (How much do you want to bet that he’ll call the next revision of the iMac “epic”?) But is that a big deal, that Apple, apparently, has no interest in incorporating Blu-ray into its computers, especially when plenty of… Read More

  • So where are the other MacBook Pro and MacBook screen size options? [Update]

    So where are the other MacBook Pro and MacBook screen size options? [Update]

    Good ‘ol Apple. The company announced brand-spanking new MacBook Pro and MacBook options today, but limited the new models to a single screen size each. Chances are, different screen size options will be announced during January’s MacWorld conference. More than likely the MacBook Pro line will receive the desktop replacement option of a 17-inch model while the MacBook line will gain… Read More

  • MacBook Air gets a bump

    MacBook Air gets a bump


    The MacBook Air, being a newer design than the aging MacBooks and Pros, got little more than a bump in specs today. But it was a good, solid bump! Here are the changes: SSD drive increased in capacity to 128GB Processor now up to 1.86GHz with a faster (1066MHz) FSB and 6MB L2 cache GeForce 9400M 256MB video card (thank god for that) Mini Displayport instead of Micro-DVI (probably a smart… Read More

  • New MacBooks announced

    Here is the skinny – the new MacBooks have dropped and while the $899 option is missing, they still rock anyway. An Intel Core 2 Duo is still at the core, but just like its new big MBP brother, NVIDIA is powering the graphics with an 9400M GPU and sports the new two-tone style.  Read More

  • Last Apple rumors before today's event

    Last Apple rumors before today's event

    You know that alleged cheap MacBook that is supposed to launch today? Yeah, there are reports that it isn’t a MacBook, but rather an updated Cinema Display with a DisplayPort input. The same rumors are stating that the entire Apple notebook lineup will not get any sort of price cuts today, rather receiving spec bumps and upgrades. Oh, and you have our word that this is the last Apple… Read More

    YouTube/MacBook hilarious comments round-up

      I enjoy any well-articulated, insightful, and/or hilarious comments left here on CrunchGear very much but I really, really get a kick out of the crazy-ass, aggressive, maniacal comments left on YouTube videos. Hit the jump to read some comments left about the probably-fake MacBook video that surfaced earlier this morning. Just a warning that there’s some harsh language… Read More

  • Leaked Apple MacBook image roundup

    Leaked Apple MacBook image roundup

    Pics have been popping up for months about Apple’s next laptop and with the event less than a week away, it’s high time that we round ‘em all up for your scrutiny. Read More

  • Is this a video of the new MacBook?

    Here’s a video from that Apple.pro website – the same site that’s been leaking all of these supposed photos of the new MacBook. I would take this video with a grain of salt for the following reasons: 1. They never zoom out and show the whole thing. 2. It looks kinda like a MacBook Air. Also, the material around the screen seems to be different from the material around the… Read More

  • Rumor: upcoming MacBooks will be two-tone

    Rumor: upcoming MacBooks will be two-tone

    M’kay. Apple is launching some sort of laptop next week. We know that, but we don’t know the details. Rumers are still swirling and the latest concerns the laptop lid shown in the Apple event invitation. You see, if you take the Apple logo at the standard dimension, a little math and photoshop’n will reveal that the laptop shown is more than likely a 13.3-inch… Read More

  • Piper Jaffray's Gene Munster pipes in on new MacBook pricing

    Piper Jaffray's Gene Munster pipes in on new MacBook pricing


    Mr. Munster released a report today that states Apple’s new MacBooks (the one’s that are being announced next week) will start out at $899 or $999. I wasn’t the biggest believer of an $800 entry point for Apple, so this seems to make a little more sense to me. The talk of the town the last few months has been a sub-$1,000 price point, which is more than likely, but not at… Read More

    Apple sending out MacBook event invites for October 14

    Apple is sending out invites to an October 14 event to be held at its Cupertino campus. Yes, it’s for those much-rumored new MacBooks. God-willing, we’ll be there. Read More

    A rumor: $800 Apple laptop imminent

    The Inquisitr is quoting some unnamed source and saying Apple is ’bout to drop an $800 laptop. Yup, according to them and an alleged retail price sheet showing 12 price points starting at $800, Apple is about to break their mold and break into a whole new market of lower priced laptops. And since these price sheets aren’t printed too far in advance, we should see this laptop real… Read More

  • More MacBrick Pro images surface

    Here we go again. Three more images that show off what appears to be a new MacBook case made by Apple’s new manufacturing process, codenamed ‘Brick‘. These are slightly different from the one that dropped yesterday, as the side speaker grills are absent. In fact, if it wasn’t for the side shot, it kind of looks like an MacBook Air case. It does make sense that Apple… Read More

    Close-up shot of MacBook Pro 'Brick'?

    The Internet rumor mill seems to be stating that Apple’s big secret, the Brick, is really a new manufacturing process. Who knows what exactly we are looking at above, but it appears to be a MacBook Pro chassis cast out of a single piece of something – hopefully some sort of metal but it kind of looks like shinny plastic. It kind of makes sense that if the codename is… Read More

  • Tipster: Nvidia MacBook coming October 14 [Update]

    Tipster: Nvidia MacBook coming October 14 [Update]

    This just hit our tips box and who knows if it’s real or not. My boyfriend who works at Nvidia last night showed me pictures on his iPhone of the unreleased nvidia based MacBook. He said it is scheduled to be released by Apple on October 14th. There is no design changes just speed bumps as well as the new Nvidia based video, getting rid of the Intel based video… Read More

    Mac Brick? Apple's fancy new manufacturing process that could revolutionize the industry

    Big rumor this weekend, which makes you wonder why it emerged during the weekend and not the workweek. Be that as it may… Apple is looking to construct, or already has, its own ultra modern manufacturing facility. A fancy factory, in English. Names being thrown around include Brick, MacBrick, or variations thereof. The facility would make use of, among other high-tech innovations, laser… Read More

    *Rumor Alert* Live MacBook Pro pic *Rumor Alert*

    All right, another day and another MacBook Pro rumor. This one comes via a French website and from what we can tell, the alleged MacBook Pro is getting some styling tips from the Air with curved corners along with Apples newer front lock. The key feature, at least according to this pic and translated text, is a touchscreen with a live, direct access to the Dock. From a design aspect, it… Read More

    We told you so/Rumor: Nvidia chipset coming to the new MacBook


    So, Mac Soda has the hot scoop that the new MacBooks, the ones that are already shipping, will be ditching the Intel graphics chipsets for the Nvidia MCP7A-U graphics chipset. Sure it’s embedded and all, but it supports HDMI. If you recall, we told you about this earlier this month. All of this propagates the rumor of a refresh coming next month. “MCP7A-U is the top class chipset… Read More
