  • 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

    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 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

  • Is Your 2011 MacBook Pro Freezing Up? You're Not The Only One

    It appears that the new MacBook Pros (introduced in February) aren’t quite fully baked. Or rather, they’re a bit overdone: there seems to be a pervasive overheating issue related to the new discrete Radeon GPUs. Read More

  • MicroCenter Takes Up To $200 Off MacBook Pro

    Here’s a quick heads-up for you on this Monday afternoon. MicroCenter will shave off up to $200 on your purchase of one of those new MacBook Pro laptops. That’s handy. 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. The firm found that the battery is the same as the current generation even though the advertised life is slightly lower. (or rather more realistic) It’s also secured separately from other components, allowing it to stay in place rather than removing it… Read More

  • 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. I reviewed a couple of their bags a while back and I know them to be pretty solid, with nice materials. These two new entries are available only in Apple Stores, though, so you’ll have to move your feet around to get ’em. 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

    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

  • 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

    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
