Let's take a look at the Mac lineup and see what the barest-bones, cheapest devices we can score might be. You're looking to take a plunge on a Mac and leave Windows behind? Here's how you can make the transition for a little less than buying the newest models.

Despite what you may have read in the press, Apple's influence on the tech world is just as strong as it's ever been. The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 released last month is clearly aimed at the iPad mini, and its Wallet app, let's just say, is inspired by Passbook. Amazon's recent TV ad directly pits its 1900x1200 Kindle Fire HD against the iPad's retina screen (and price). And Blackberry is so tweaked by Apple, at least one of its executives can't even bring himself to speak his competitor's name in public. But no matter how hard they try, no matter how much time Apple gives them to catch up, there's one thing none of them can seem to get right: the art of the product reveal.
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.
