Wednesday, June 14, 2017

LOS ANGELES – While I definitely love a big ole hulking gaming laptop, thin and lights have a place in my heart as well. And if notebooks like the new Origin PC Eon15-S have their way, they will earn even more of my attention. The latest version of the high-performance iteration of the Eon15-S will be available very soon, starting at around $1,600. That’s compared to $2,073 for the previous model. I…

Apple’s Thunderbolt Display doesn’t work with a 12-inch MacBook’s USB-C port – Macworld

Wednesday, June 14, 2017

Apple’s iPad Pro is closer than ever to replacing your laptop – Washington Post

Tuesday, June 13, 2017

(Apple) Last year, I reviewed Apple’s new iPad Pro and found that it was not quite the laptop replacement that we had hoped for.

Don’t buy a new MacBook Air — consider replacing the battery instead – Business Insider

Monday, June 12, 2017

Flickr/Matthew Pearce This week, Apple announced a small update to its MacBook Air, boosting the processor so the line will run a little faster. To be honest, it’s a snoozer of an upgrade.  The Air now starts with a 1.8 GHz processor, instead of a 1.6 GHz processor. That’s a minor change, and as my colleague Jeff Dunn pointed out, there are a lot of reasons you should NOT buy…
