  • 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

  • Apple finally releases Core i5 and Core i7 MacBook Pros


    Finally, finally. Apple finally released MacBook Pros with Intel’s latest chips while updating nearly everything else, too. The just announced MBPs forgo the Core 2 Duo CPUs in favor of the faster and more efficient Core i5 and Core i7 CPUs — except for the 13-inch line. The 15-inch now rocks a i5 or i7 CPU, 4GB of RAM, and switchable graphics between an Intel HD Graphics GPU and… Read More

  • Apple refreshing the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air line next week?

    Nicholas just voiced a valid question in the always-entertaining but private CrunchGear chatroom, “Why would I pay $1,500 for a Core 2 Duo in 2010?” He then answered it by saying, “I wouldn’t.” Well said, sir. Apple’s current crop of notebooks are a slap in the face to its customers, but maybe Apple will finally catch up to HP, Dell, Acer, Gateway… Read More

  • Mac pricing leak? Perhaps updated Macs are inbound.

    In case you haven’t noticed, the MacBook Pro line is starting to get a little stale with just a lowly Core 2 Duo CPU. Even the Mac Pro with it’s Quad-Core Xeon isn’t the fastest kid in town anymore with the six-core Core i7-980X making the rounds. Hopefully all this fuss concerning a supposed leak of new Mac pricing that’s a bit higher than the current MSRPs… Read More

  • A one stop shop for all your MBP lid and iMac chin decal needs

    Got a MacBook Pro or iMac that needs a little customizing? Head over to this Etsy store for a bunch of lid and chin graphics. We’ve seen a few of these over the years, but there are a bunch that are at least brand new to me, including a Goatse decal that’s not library appropriate and a Scarface-themed decal that will make all your bros jealous.
