If you've found yourself wanting a MacBook Air over the last couple of days, you might be better off waiting, according to AppleInsider. In fact, you may even have a hard time finding it. All across the country. from Amazon.com to B&H and MacCollection, resellers and retailers are reporting that the lightweight laptop's completely or nearly out of stock, and the increasing shortage is being trumpeted as proof that Apple will release a new model at WWDC on June 10-June 14.
I use my MacBook Pro with its lid closed so often, I almost forget it has its own screen and keyboard. But Cooler Master’s L-Stand is the first stand I’ve tried that isn’t open on the top. The thin aluminum frame is handsome, but since it’s closed, you have to thread your MacBook in through the side.
It’s not much of a bold assertion to claim that Apple makes the best notebook keyboards around, so it makes sense that MacBook owners would want to protect those ebony Chiclets from harm. NewerTech has been making keyboard prophylactics longer than anyone, and has now added the latest and greatest Retina-powered MacBook Pro to its lineup.
Hellolulu is making its US presence known with a whole new catalog of bags, cases, and other stylish products for carrying your gear. They focus on removing all "unnecessary bulk" and adding style to their products, and that is exactly what the Conn Campus Backpack does.
The Conn is the most diverse bag I have ever used. It's full of pockets and places to put things, but yet it maintains its style, remains extremely light-weight, and offers incredible durability.
Apple launched its latest iteration of the MacBook Pro rather quietly, with no media event or even a press release. Instead, they quietly bumped up the specs in their flagship laptops. If you’ve recently bought a MacBook Pro, you’re not missing much. But if you’ve been mulling over a purchase, now might be the time. The improvements are modest, to be sure, but Apple has also brought back an option that we’ve been chomping at the bit to have for quite some time.
The promise of a laptop is to let you work anywhere. But their dirty secret is that the "comfort" of being able to answer email from your favorite coffee shop often isn't that comfortable at all. If you've ever tried to type a long missive on a totally flat keyboard, bending your wrists weirdly to do so, or suffered a sore neck from titling your craning down to focus on the screen, you know what we're talking about.
Aviiq makes some well-constructed and handsome full-size laptop stands, but the new Portable Quick Stand is designed to go wherever the spirit takes you and your 'Book.
The future of the MacBook can definitely be seen in the thin form factor and speedy performance of the MacBook Air -- two huge benefits that come in large part from the Air’s onboard flash memory. Unfortunately, you can’t magically turn a MacBook Pro into an Air, but you can swap out a Pro’s platter-based hard disk for the flash memory of a solid-state drive (SSD). To give the MacBook Pro the kind of pep of its thinner sibling, we traded out the stock hard drive for a Mercury Extreme Pro SSD from OWC. In certain circumstances, the performance gains were significant, but we had to trade capacity for speed.
MacBook Pro refreshes aren’t as predictable as the faithful yearly launches of the iOS devices. They tend to come out of nowhere, like a bolt of lightning—and this one brought a surprising bolt of thunder, too. Yes, the MacBook Pro now sports a Thunderbolt port. Developed by Intel and Apple, it lets you attach external displays with a Mini DisplayPort connector, delivering audio and video. Existing Mini DisplayPort-to-HDMI (or VGA, DVI, and DisplayPort) adapters also work.
While Intel's error on their latest chip design has certainly been the subject of much publicity, it has also unfortunately put a slight bump in the road of Apple's plans for a widely expected MacBook Pro refresh. However, there is some good news. The bump should only be slight, and any delay should only be minor.
Do you remember that person you dated in high school--the one your mom hated because she knew they were no good for you? They were a bit too much for you to handle, they didn’t treat you so great…and you couldn’t care less because they were just that hot? This bag is like that.
