  • PSA: MacBook Pros with Nvidia graphics chips may be faulty [Update]

    Apple has released a statement that may affect those of you with newer MacBook Pros with Nvidia GeForce 8600M GT graphics cards. Said graphics cards have been known to be faulty and may cause video to be scrambled or distorted. Mine is doing just fine – BTW. In July 2008, NVIDIA publicly acknowledged a higher than normal failure rate for some of their graphics processors due to a… Read More

  • External MacBook Pro battery adds life, costs ducats

    I would caution you all against buying accessories for your Apple laptop now, a week before a major Apple announcement, but this external battery does look pretty handy. It plugs right into the MBP as if it were an outlet and gives (they say) 6-10 hours of extra battery life. Of course, my MBP is so borked that that would mean 6-10 hours of total battery life (thanks Apple), but hey. Two… 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

  • 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

  • NVIDIA showing off the next MacBook Pro?

    Yet again, we are here gazing at another MacBook Pro rumor pic. Word on the street is that NVIDIA is going to provide the next-gen GPU for the MBP and apparently, they are proud of their work. The image above is currently occupying front and center on NVIDIA’s notebook page. But calm down fanboys, there is no way that the NVIDIA suits would violate Jobs’ trust – and NDA… Read More

  • 'New' MacBook Pro drop and we take the bait

    The Apple MacBook Pro rumor mill keeps churning out tasty ‘real pics’ with another MacBook Pro photo and accompanying web advertisement. We have to be honest though, these look the most believable yet. The laptop in question sports an iPhone-ish top lid with the Pro’s trademark aluminum interior. There isn’t anything crazy and out of place like a touchscreen… 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

  • Is this the new MacBook Pro?

    A German division of T-Mobile just posted this image that some are saying might be the next MacBook Pro. Sure, we already know that aluminum MacBooks have started shipping, but who in their right mind would think this picture really is the next MacBook Pro? This is clearly a rendering, and while it might closely represent what’s coming, it probably isn’t the real deal. Plus… Read More

  • QuickerTek releases high-powered Wi-Fi ExpressCard

    The QuickerTech ExpressCard is a 802.11n/g ExpressCard with the honkingest antenna in all the land. It works with most MacBook Pros – they tell you to basically remove your Apple AirPort card, which is a tall order, but whatevs – and costs $199. I’m a big fan of external Wi-Fi devices. I’ve used the HawkingTech USB Wi-Fi card for years and adding a massive antenna to… Read More

  • Internet darling Kevin Rose says new iPods on September 9; MacBooks in late September?

    We continue to hang on Kevin Rose‘s every word vis-à-vis Apple rumors. He said on this week’s This Week in Tech podcast that, according to his sources, we should see an Apple event on September 9, where Jobs & Co. will introduce new iPods. This photo here is supposedly what the new iPod nano looks like—larger screen than last year’s model, and probably cheaper… Read More

  • Making the most of your laptop's ExpressCard slot

    I’ve had my MacBook Pro for more than two years now, and I’ve never used the ExpressCard slot. Now that I think about it, that was pretty stupid, because I was makeshifting all kinds of ways to get stuff off of SD cards, ways to speedily backup my mp3s and so on, when I could be using cheap, efficient little plugs made exactly for those purposes. This excellent little article… Read More

  • Video: Worst promo video ever

    Here’s the thing about making videos for your products, CE folk, make sure people are aware of whatever it is that you’re selling. The Fins-Up is probably a decent accessory, but you wouldn’t know it by watching the video. Am I right? You’re eyes are being pulled in by the cleavage on the woman who seriously needs a new hair stylist anyway. Is it 1987? Read More

  • Purported images of the new MacBook Pro

    Images of what some are claiming to be the new aluminum casing for the MacBook Pro have surfaced on (Chinese) and I’m not entirely convinced this is legit. The most notable difference is that the bottom casing is much smaller than the top, but MacRumors points out (that it’s removable) that it could simply be due to the fact that the battery is no longer being placed in… Read More

  • Something that sucks about the MacBook Pro

    I have done zero research into this problem, so you’ll have to forgive me if it’s an easy fix. The issue I’ve been having with my MBP is that once I plug in my headphones, the volume jumps to 100 percent and I forget about it every single time, which perpetuates my already horrendous hearing. This was not a problem with my MacBook, though. If I recall correctly, the… Read More

  • ExperCom to retrofit MacBook, MacBook Pro with SSD

    I certainly don’t care to have an SSD in my MBP, but if you’re really itching to get one in your MB or MBP then give Expercom a call and they’ll take care of it for you. Of course, you’ll be paying out the wazoo for a 60GB or 120GB SSD. Your two options are to send your rig into Expercom, or purchase a 15-inch MBP with a 2.4GHz proc/2GB RAM/120GB SSD for $2,649 or a… Read More

  • Get inside Carrie's MacBook in a shameless Apple/Sex in the City promotion

    Sex in the City has always been a voyeuristic pleasure for those who enjoy it. It’s okay, admit it. And now you have the chance to go behind Carrie’s back and snoop around her laptop – which happens to be a Macbook Pro. I’m not the biggest fan, but I am very nosy, so this was a pleasure for me. There wasn’t any sensitive information, but the Stickies were full… Read More

  • MacBook line to see chassis redesign real soon, most likely in June

    Image ganked from Mac Rumors.
    Hallelujah! The MacBook family is finally getting its much-needed redesign, says Apple Insider. The MacBook will be the most dramatic with an aluminum and stainless steel casing that’s more eco-friendly. The MBP will also see a chassis redesign with a new trackpad and keyboard ala MBA. This redesign should occur when the new Montevina-based chips roll out… Read More

  • Photo: 150 apps open simultaneously on MacBook Pro

    So this guy insists he’s not lying. It’s a screen shot of his MacBook Pro (2.2 GHz and 4GB RAM) with 150 programs running simultaneously, smoothly even. He’s activated Exposé so that we can see all of ’em. I do not believe him, but then again, I’m a cynic. Always have been, always will be. I’ve got Mail, Adium, Safari, Firefox, iTunes, Linkinus… Read More

  • Problems with LED screens on Penryn MacBook Pro?

    I think some LEDs decided to die on my new MBP. I haven’t restarted as I’m trying to get some work done, but anyone else experience this? Read More

  • Video: Coolest virus ever infects MacBook Pro

    The Newton Virus. It’s a virus for fun. It doesn’t harm anything or copy itself. It executes just once, with the results above. It only works on MacBooks, as it uses the motion sensor for the fun effect. It installs quickly and sneakily from a thumbdrive. Friends with MacBooks: Beware my prankster’s wrath. Read More
