The New MacBook Isn't What You Think

Apple’s new MacBook is slick and svelte. It only weighs two pounds! But before you get too excited about how well this tiny (gold) laptop might fit into your life, you should know a little bit about its brains. This is not a retina MacBook Air.


Apple Messed Up On The MacBook Air Again

For years Apple’s MacBook Air has languished in partial obsolescence — a great laptop with fantastic battery life and a quizzically outdated screen. 1440 x 900 is a pitifully small resolution for modern times. Sadly, the company hasn’t learnt its lesson: the 2015 MacBook Air refresh has the same, outdated display as it has for years. What a disappointment.


The New Ultra Skinny MacBook: Here's Your Next (Gold!) Apple Laptop

It’s about damn time Apple reinvented the MacBook. More than the refreshed MacBook Air we’ve been hearing rumours about since last year, this new laptop is called simply MacBook. It’s so little and tiny that we’re practically breathless.


That Rumoured 12-Inch MacBook Air Could Be A Stunner

Ah, the wonders of photorealistic 3D modelling software. Although it’s only been two days since 9to5Mac leaked that Apple is planning the biggest overhaul to its laptops in years — in the form of a new 12-inch MacBook Air — we’ve already got gauzy, hyper-real renderings of this sucker. If this is what Apple is planning, count us in.

The new Macbook Air-esque Folio 1020 business laptop comes in two editions: standard, which weighs 1.2kg (and can be fitted with a touchscreen), and a ‘special’ edition, which weighs in at 1kg without any touchiness. Guts-wise, it’s what you’d expect from a modern high-end laptop: 8GB of RAM and SSD storage.


The Switcher Diaries: On The Road With The Surface Pro 3

My phone starts to wiggle its way across my desk as the vibration from the call coming in kicks over. It’s Campbell Simpson, the other half of the Gizmodo brain trust on the other end. “Hey man. I’m downstairs in my Tesla Model S, want to come for a ride?” I scoop up my Surface and hit the road: can the push the limits of the future worker by turning a Model S into a mobile office?


So Where's That Retina MacBook Air?

The MacBook Air is a positively wonderful computer. One of the best! Its design and build-quality are unrivalled and oft-imitated. It pioneered the ultra-super-slim space. But by today’s standards its screen is seriously lacking. And there doesn’t seem to be much relief in sight.
