Apple MacBook Pro Core i5 vs Core i7: Why I’m getting the i5 … – Business Insider

Monday, July 03, 2017

In 2012, I bought the most powerful model of the 15-inch MacBook Pro because I knew its Core i7 processor would keep up for several more years than a MacBook Pro with a less powerful Core i5 processor. The concept is called “future-proofing.” Basically, I buy a device that’s way more powerful than necessary for my current needs in anticipation for the future when operating systems and apps will require more horsepower.  My…

Apple 2017 5K iMac 27-inch review: The screen sucks you right in – Mashable

Sunday, July 02, 2017

“Apple doesn’t care about the Mac anymore” is the overarching narrative that’s been tossed around over the last few years. There’s some truth to the sentiment, even if you’re a long-time Apple user and Mac supporter. The MacBook’s still too underpowered, overpriced, and still only has a single USB-C port. The new MacBook Pros force you into dongle hell and if you get the Touch Bar model, it’s still not…

Amazon currently offers the previous-generation 13-inch MacBook Air for $799.99. That’s $200 cheaper than the new Air and $10 cheaper than buying a refurb MacBook Air direct from Apple. Apple has been secretive about the new MacBook Air’s…

Surface Laptop review: Microsoft’s MacBook Air killer nails what students need – PCWorld

Friday, June 30, 2017

Our Surface Laptop review looks at Microsoft’s new notebook in two ways: as a stylish ultrabook, designed and priced to compete with Apple’s MacBook Air for college students’ favor. But it’s also a machine purpose-built for Windows 10 S, which restricts users to Windows Store apps but allows an upgrade to Windows 10 Pro. We’ve therefore reviewed the Surface Laptop using its native Windows 10 S, but will add to our…
