Seems like any time a new Apple product is released or updated, within days the company's support forums begin filling up with complaints over a variety of issues -- and the latest MacBook Pro refresh is no exception.
Following up the MacBook Air refresh, senior vice president of worldwide marketing Phil Schiller leapt straight into the MacBook Pro line, including a new “next generation” model that mostly matches the rumors we’ve been hearing lately.
Most of the recent rumors about a new MacBook Pro have been focused on it being as thin as a MacBook Air -- but that may be wishful thinking, according to trusted sources who are spilling the beans on the forthcoming 15-inch model.
Where oh where is a new MacBook Pro? A new report claims it’s on the way -- but that Apple appears to be more focused on a 13.3-inch model than the 15-inch model that has historically been the most popular size.
There have been plenty of rumors flying around in recent months that the MacBook Pro may soon resemble the MacBook Air, slimming down and losing bulky, traditional hard disk and optical storage. But what if the Pro lineup was simply being absorbed into a larger Air?
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.
Now that Apple has conquered the 11-inch and 13-inch form factor with the MacBook Air, there are rumblings that the company has set its sights on a super-slim 15-inch notebook computer that’s nearing completion -- but it’s not likely to be part of the Air lineup.
When it comes to things like MacBook sleeves and iPhone cases, we don’t often go for flash. Basic black works just fine. It coordinates with everything, doesn’t show dirt, and works for business or casual settings.
But black gets a bit dull. Sometimes you need a splash of color or the visual variety of a pattern. Especially for guys (who don’t have as much opportunity as ladies to add unique accents in their wardrobes), it’s refreshing to be able to outfit your tech gear with a bit more panache. Enter Incase and L.A. art collective Arkitip (arkitip.com), who have teamed up to offer a series of MacBook Pro sleeves and iPhone cases printed with original art by Evan Hecox, whose gorgeous work focuses on “average people as they traverse the modern metropolis.”
