    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.

    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.

If rumors are to be believed, the best of both worlds might be on its way, with Air-style… Read More

  • iFixit Tears Down The Latest MacBook Pro, Finds MacBook Pro Parts Inside

    When there’s a new gadget, iFixit simply must tear it apart in the name of gadget pr0n. This includes the latest MacBook Pro.

(or rather more realistic) It’s also secured separately from other components, allowing it to stay in place rather than removing it… Read More

  • MacBook Pro Battery Life Appears Shorter, But More Realistic (Using Websites And Even Flash)

    Now that the news about the new MacBook Pros is out there, one thing that may disappoint someone just reading the spec sheet is battery life. Across the board, the Pro is now rated at 7 hours. While still very solid, this is actually a step down from the previous versions which were rated at 8 to 9 hours for the 15 and 17-inch models, and 10 hours for the 13-inch model. So what gives? Well… Read More

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.

  • 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.

    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
