  • Apple updates 15-inch MacBook Pro at WWDC 2009

    Quick and dirty: Apple just announced an updated 15-inch MacBook Pro at WWDC, with prices starting at $1,699. It’s the same unibody design that’s proven to be so popular, but this time with much improved battery life (it lasts about two hours longer than before, and can withstand about three times as many charges as before). Oh, and there’s a built-in SD Card slot. Read More

  • Apple WWDC rumors: MacBook speed bumps, pro application upgrades (but where's the netbook?)

    As Apple’s WWDC gets ever closer the rumors begin to hot up. Today’s drivel: the MacBook and MacBook Pro may see slight upgrades there. Apple may throw in built-in 3G support, along with the usual speed bumps; it may also make the battery more difficult to remove, in the interest of aesthetics. Read More

  • Firmware update should fix 17-inch MacBook Pro display issues

    So Apple just released a firmware update for the new 17-inch MacBook Pro that supposedly fixes that nasty screen tearing issue we discussed. As with all firmware updates, you’re asked to pray to your god of choice in order to ensure that the update goes smoothly. Read More

  • 17-inch MacBook Pro woes not Nvidia's fault?

    So, Nvidia’s GeForce 9600M GPU may not be causing the screen glitches that have been creeping up on some of the new 17-inch MacBook Pros after all. I know we like to tar and feather Nvidia, but this may just very well be an Apple issue or that’s what Nvidia want us to think. “Our understanding is that Apple is investigating this, and if they need our help we will… Read More

  • Trouble in paradise: What's the matter with the 17-inch MacBook Pro's display?

    You just know that Steve Jobs is pretty upset with Nvidia right now. Reports are popping up detailing video problems currently being suffered by the new 17-inch MacBook Pro. It seems that, for some people, whenever the 9600M is turned on the screen displays all sorts of nasty tearing and color deformities. That picture up there shows the extent to the damage. Read More

  • Oh, one more thing: MacBook Pro gets a bump in speed

    Among all the hoopla of the desktop Mac refreshes this morning, we missed the minuscule MacBook Pro update. The higher-end 15-inch model, you know, the $2500 one, got a processor bump from 2.53GHz to 2.66GHz. And a 256GB SSD for a whopping $750. Not good enough for you, huh? How about a $300 bump to a 2.93GHz processor? In case you haven’t caught on, that puts the high-end 15-inch model… Read More

  • 17-inch MacBook Pro gets broken down

    Those lucky (and sadistic) ducks over at iFixit have taken their brand new 17-inch MBP and torn it down with their usual gusto. As expected, the layout and parts are much like its 15-inch cousin but bigger, and of course the much-advertised battery is different. It was removed like any other… not sure why Apple made such a big deal about it. It’s 12820 mAh, which is a grip &mdash… Read More

    Got some bad news for those MacHeads that pre-ordered the new, unibody 17-inch MacBook Pro. Said notebook has been delayed by two weeks but chances are you already know that from the same email we received from Apple explaining the whole situation.
