On the heels of a Siri-powered introduction and Apple CEO Tim Cook showing off a moving video of developers around the world, senior vice president of worldwide marketing Phil Schiller hits the stage to talk about new hardware -- specifically the MacBook line.
For a while, it looked like computers would come with more storage than you could ever need, but some modern Macs are almost heading in the opposite direction. Solid-state drives mean you must now be a little careful about weighty files—the smallest MacBook Air, after all, has only 64GB of precious, precious disk space.
Almost a year and half after its introduction, Thunderbolt is finally starting to live up to its promise thanks to new gadgets such as the Matrox DS1, a docking station which brings missing ports to MacBooks.
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.
The Web lit up yesterday with reports that Apple will be putting even more pressure on the so-called ultrabook market with a $799 MacBook Air, the first ready-to-use Mac priced that low since the days of the Indigo G3 iMac. It may sound unreasonable--given the source and Apple's penchant for profits--but this rumor's not as far-fetched as it seems (you know, assuming Apple ever updates its Macs again).
Apple rarely competes on low prices, but a new report claims that Cupertino may be planning an all-out pricing assault on the second generation of Ultrabook computers by introducing an even cheaper MacBook Air in Q3 2012.
The deals, they keep on coming, whether it be MacBooks of all shapes and configs or cases and software. We've searched for the best of the week and you'll want to move quick. Some of these are very limited time only.
Now that we’ve all had enough time with the new iPad to separate the facts from the fiction surrounding the device, it’s time to move on to more important matters: The unconfirmed scuttlebutt surrounding Apple’s upcoming hardware and software releases. This week, we're looking at rumors surrounding the MacBook Air, the iPhone 5's probable inclusion of LTE connectivity, and whether or not we'll see a smaller iPad in the near future.
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?
