It Feels Like It's Been 27 Years Since We Got A New MacBook Pro

Twenty-seven years ago yesterday, Apple introduced its first battery-powered Mac, the Macintosh Portable. I could take this time to reflect on 27 years of portable Macs and all they have given to us (the cameos in Sex and the City alone are life changing), but instead I’m just reminded that if feels like it has been 27 goddamn years since we got a new MacBook Pro.


Apple's Best Laptop Is Four Years Old

In 2012 the Macbook Pro Retina wasn’t so much the next stage of laptops as it was a fun oddity by Apple. It was a workstation, designed to handle gruelling video and photo editing tasks with aplomb, but it was missing some workstation musts, like a DVD drive or Ethernet port. Instead it was thinner and lighter than a traditional Macbook Pro, had a gorgeous 1800p display and was outfitted with a solid state drive.


Apple's New MacBook Pros Sound Sick But You Gotta Wait

We’ve been waiting four painful years for new MacBook Pros, and if you’ve been holding on to your dying machine in hopes that a refreshed line must be imminent, we’re sorry to inform you that you’re going to have to wait even longer.

What To Expect From Apple WWDC 2016

Apple’s annual developer conference, WWDC, is nearly upon us. The event runs from June 13-17 and traditionally serves as the launching point for major updates to iOS, OS X and the company’s other platforms. In the last few years, the updates to Apple’s two major OSes has been relatively small and boring for anyone who doesn’t have Xcode developer tools installed on their computer.

But this year, Apple is expected to make some big announcements that non-developers can get excited about — namely major updates to its two most popular laptop lines: The Macbook Air and Macbook Pro. So what else might be revealed? Here’s what you can expect from Apple WWDC 2016.


MacBook Pros Will Reportedly Get An OLED Touchscreen Above The Keyboard

Dependable rumours suggest that the MacBook Pro is about to get major revamp. According to a new report from Ming-Chi Kuo at KGI Securities, Apple will release a dramatic redesign of the MacBook Pro in the fourth quarter. “Dramatic” might be too small a word, actually.


The Joy Of Owning An Eight-Year-Old MacBook

During last week’s Apple event, Phil Schiller called people who own computers that are more than five years old “sad.” That was a silly thing to say, Phil!


Microsoft Surface Vs. MacBook: A Head-to-Head Comparison

Microsoft is making a big splash with its latest gear, the Surface Pro 4 and the Surface Book. These pricey products are designed to compete directly with Apple’s traditional hegemony on premium gadgets. But just how well do these latest offerings measure up against Apple?


Windows 10, On A Mac

Tentatively wondering whether it’s worth setting up Windows 10 as an alternate boot option on your Mac? I’ve taken the plunge for you — here’s what I found.
