Retina MacBook Air coming soon, as larger ‘iPad Pro’ gets delayed

Apple is going to start 12-inch MacBook Air mass-production next quarter, Digitimes has learned from sources familiar with the matter, with Quanta Computer apparently being entrusted with assembling the new MacBook Air model. Apple wants a slightly bigger Air model than its entry-level 11-inch model in order to better differentiate the iPad and Air – the 11-inch MacBook Air has a screen size similar to the iPad Air’s – and “establish a clear boundary between the two product lines.” More →

Best Buy is offering the best deals yet for the new MacBook Airs

If you’re intrigued by Apple’s latest line of refreshed MacBook Airs, you should check out what Best Buy has to offer. AppleInsider points out that Best Buy is offering the lowest prices for the newest MacBook Airs that we’ve yet seen, including $854.99 for the entry-level 11.6-inch MacBook Air that normally retails for $899, and  $949.99 for the entry-level 13-inch model that normally retails for $999. Of course, the deals being offered for 2013’s MacBook Airs are even better and you can get an entry-level 11.6-inch model for just $759.99 and an entry-level 13-inch model for $854.99. Given that early benchmarks we’ve seen of the new MacBook Airs showed only a slight improvement over the 2013 MacBook Airs, then the year-old models look like much better bargains at this point.

A newly published patent application reveals that Apple is researching ways to improve user input on its MacBook laptops, by including a keyboard capable of offering more advanced keys ready to perform more than one task, AppleInsider reports.

Don’t hurry off to buy the new MacBook Air just yet

While Apple has just released the 2014 MacBook Air models, which are now cheaper than ever, interested buyers shouldn’t necessarily purchase one of them just yet, or at least not until they check out all other available Air deals, considering that the new models offer only slight improvements compared to last year’s Airs and that 2012 and 2013 MacBook Air versions are now even cheaper than before.

Why Apple’s decision to cut the MacBook Air price was genius

Apple is a company known for its great products, its past and current CEO, its great (and sometimes not so great commercials), and the way it influences people all over the world. However, all of that comes at a price, as Apple products are generally more expensive than its competitors, which has led to some calling Apple’s premium price points the “Apple tax.” That tax, however, may be coming to an end.

Apple launches new MacBook Airs that are faster than ever and $100 cheaper

Apple on Tuesday quietly unveiled new MacBook Air models, as previously reported, but the new laptops will not offer any particularly interesting updates – a recent report claimed new Air models will be even thinner and lighter than their predecessors, but that’s not the case for Apple’s early 2014 Air models. What’s significant though is that the new Airs are now cheaper than ever, no matter what model buyers end up choosing. More →

Video: Here’s one good reason to break open your MacBook Pro or Air

One of the “issues” Retina MacBook Pro and MacBook Air have is the lack of a user-friendly way to upgrade their SSD drives. While buyers may easily purchase an external hard drive or rely on the cloud to have access to more space, Transcend has devised a very easy way to upgrade the internal SSD drive of these Apple laptop models, while turning the built-in drive into a spare, external storage option.

According to a new report from an extremely reliable source, Apple is righting both of those wrongs in 2014. More →
