MacBook review: Apple’s 12-inch mini laptop gets it right – CNET – CNET

Friday, June 23, 2017

Full disclosure: I’ve had a strong affinity for the 12-inch MacBook since it was originally introduced in 2015. Sure, it was underpowered and had an annoyingly flat keyboard. And it had only a single USB-C port — then still something of an exotic novelty — for both power and data connections. But I loved how slim and lightweight it was, its excellent high-resolution display, and how I could get all…

Apple’s MacBook Air Needs To Be Killed Off – Forbes – Forbes

Friday, June 23, 2017

In case you missed it, Apple updated the venerable MacBook Air during WWDC. While all the focus was on the iPad Pro and the draw of AR in mobile technology, the laptop picked up the least amount of love possible with a bump on Intel’s fifth generation chipset from 1.6 GHz to 1.8 GHz. For all the talk of the iPad Pro being able to replace a laptop and be…

Apple iMac 27-inch With Retina 5K Display (2017): CPU and GPU upgrades deliver better value for money – ZDNet

Friday, June 23, 2017

When the iMac was first launched it was very much intended as an affordable home computer — and, indeed, was often derided for its cute, candy-coloured design. In recent years, though, the iMac has gradually evolved into a professional-level graphics workstation, and that status has now been confirmed with Apple’s recent announcement of the forthcoming iMac Pro. However, the iMac Pro isn’t due until December, and Apple’s recent admission that…

MacBook Kaby Lake review: Pricing, Specifications, and Features – Macworld

Thursday, June 22, 2017

It’s now year three of the MacBook as we know it, and it seems that after initially being a laptop without an ecosystem, and then a laptop that we’re still getting used to, the MacBook has settled into its groove. It’s established its place in Apple’s laptop line, and it’s finally gain acceptance by the consumer. But maybe you’re still a holdout. You’re out there, I know, still not convinced…

Apple iMac (27-inch, 2017) review: – CNET

Wednesday, June 21, 2017

Apple dusts off its veteran 27-inch iMac all-in-one, updating it just enough to bring it up to 2017 standards for speed and features, as well as to brighten its 5K display and give it the ability to simulate more colors. In practice, that means Apple incorporated 2017 versions of Intel processors and AMD graphics, added support for Bluetooth 4.2, and replaced the old Mini DisplayPort connectors with two Thunderbolt 3-capable…

How the iPad Pro and iOS 11 will finally kill the MacBook Air – Macworld

Wednesday, June 21, 2017

Ever since Apple added a giant screen, detachable keyboard and Bluetooth stylus to the iPad, the company has wanted us to think of it as a computer—a super computer, in fact, if you believe its advertising tagline. But while it might have had the processing power and screen real estate of a MacBook, the iPad Pro was no more a Mac than any other tablet that came before it. While…

Wednesday, June 21, 2017

Spend enough time using a touchscreen — any touchscreen — and you’re sure to try using gestures on every screen you encounter, even ones without touch. I use a Microsoft Surface Pro 4 for work, an iPad Pro at home and the iPhone in my pocket. I live in a touch world, except when I use a Mac. Apple will never make a touchscreen Mac because, as they told me…
