We're guessing the folks at iFixit would love to get their spudgers into that swanky new Mac Pro Apple unveiled at WWDC 2013 on Monday, but until that time, we'll have to make do with the latest MacBook Air instead.
Much of the attention circling the new MacBook Air has focused on Intel's new Haswell processors and the considerable improvements to battery life they provide, but it's possible that the most impressive improvement is the PCIe-based flash storage in each unit. Indeed, it may be even more impressive that we originally thought, and that means great things for the new Mac Pros that will be housing them as well. According to a report by Anandtech released this morning, read/write speeds are approaching 800 mb/s on the new 13" MacBook Air.
Well, that’s it folks: WWDC 2012 wraps up today and developers will soon head home to put the finishing touches on their OS X Mountain Lion apps, while immersing themselves in the fun and excitement of iOS 6 ahead of its launch this fall. But that doesn’t mean the rest of the tech world is just twiddling their thumbs -- read on and find out everything making news for this freaky Friday, June 15, 2012.
If it seems like you might have just read something about a new Thunderbolt PCI Express expansion chassis coming from Magma, that’s probably because we just mentioned it earlier this week. Now Magma has slipped out the official word, with a three-slot ExpressBox 3T soon available for preorder.
