Apple will unveil a redesigned MacBook Pro next month, as well as other Mac hardware, according to many reports on the matter. But the company may have even more interesting computers down the road, as it’s apparently partnering with Nvidia for ‘revolutionary’ new products.
We just saw the first 1TB SD card in the world, albeit only a prototype at the moment. But now it’s time to look at new SSD hardware that’s even more impressive, and arguably more useful. If you’re searching for incredibly fast SSDs, Samsung’s got you covered.
The company unveiled a pair of drives that will make future laptops crazy kinds of fast. The new drives offer sequential read speeds of at least 3.200Mbps and sequential write speeds of at least 1,900Mbps. Unfortunately, the new Samsung 960 Evo and Samsung 960 Pro will not work with current MacBook Pro and Air models. More →
In the wake of the iPhone 7 shipping without a traditional 3.5mm headphone jack, many have wondered how the controversial design decision might impact other devices in Apple’s product lineup.
While removing the headphone jack on a relatively small and tightly packed device like the iPhone can be justified as a means to make room for other components, it’s hard to make a similar argument for removing the jack on larger devices like the iPad and Apple’s Mac lineup.
Apple last week unveiled a bunch of new products during its iPhone fall event, with the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus sharing the spotlight. There was no surprise one more thing at the end of the show — though you could argue that Apple began with one: Super Mario for iPhone. That means we did not get to see a brief MacBook announcement during the event that was focused on mobile devices and mobile experiences. But Apple is expected to refresh some of its Mac products this year, and Tim Cook hinted that’s going to happen sooner than you think. More →
Apple on Wednesday will unveil the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, with the Apple Watch 2 also rumored to make an appearance during the show. The 2016 MacBook Pro refresh is probably not due for at least another month, though hopeful Apple enthusiasts would probably love to see it unveiled during the event. We’ve seen plenty of leaks describing some of the features of the upcoming iPhone 7 and MacBook Pro families, and now a brand new leak reveals a long list of products and features Apple might be cooking up.

The iPhone 7 is being officially announced tomorrow, but we already know basically all there is to know. But it’s rare that Apple’s events are a one-trick pony, so what else might Tim Cook and Co have in stock?
The MacBook Pro is getting a massive redesign this year, multiple reports have said. The laptop will be even thinner and lighter than predecessors, but its best new feature might be a touch-ready secondary OLED display that’s supposed to replace the entire function key row atop the keyboard. More →
Both Microsoft and Apple are preparing to launch new laptops this year, but it’s only the Redmond-based company that’s making a big fuss about its existing lineup. In a hilarious attack on the Mac, Microsoft says – well, sings – that the Macs are less useful, just like as a hat for your cat. The 30-second ad is funny, but also rather ironic, as Microsoft is making fun of the devices that it also happens to praise.
The best MacBook Pro money can buy right now is amazing. But it still can’t offer you the kind of gaming experience you expect from a computer, and the same goes for virtual reality. Apple might be exploring VR right now, and it’s likely that future MacBook Pros will have better graphic cards so they can handle more complex programs and games. But any existing MacBooks won’t be eligible for upgrades – after all, these are laptops.
To fix that, one company has come up with a device that aims to give any laptop, including MacBooks, a huge boost: Meet the Wolfe.
Apple’s upcoming Macbooks need to be a major refresh to the lineup, since the laptop selection is looking a little old lately. We’re expecting Touch ID and a new OLED button panel to come to the 2016 Macbook Pro, but code hidden in the latest version of macOS Sierra hints at one additional feature.
According to code uncovered by 9to5Mac, macOS Sierra will support USB 3.1 Gen 2, better known as the upgraded version of USB-C. Apple introduced USB-C ports into its lineup with the 2015 Retina Macbook, and it’s a safer bet than ever that those ports will be coming to the new Macbook Pro.
Best Buy is going to celebrate its 50th anniversary on August 22nd, and the company will host a special sales event this week to kick off the party. Starting at 11:00 PM Eastern on Thursday and ending at 12:59 AM Eastern on Sunday, this will be Best Buy’s first-ever 50 deals for 50 hours event. Most deals will be available both in stores and online, though some are going to be online-only. On top of some hot discounts, buyers will also get free two-day shipping on almost everything in the sale. More →
Apple is very interested in virtual reality, but not all of its hardware can support VR at this point. However, things may change later this year when Apple launches its 2016 MacBook Pro series. Detailing the alleged new features of the new laptops, a report casually mentions that some models will pack high-end Polaris graphics cards, which have been built to offer gamers cheap access to VR, at least on desktops.

Apple is expected to debut a new line of MacBook laptops at some point in the last quarter of the year, with the long-forgotten Macbook Pro expected to finally get an update
It’s not clear at this stage whether the MacBook Air brand will be discontinued or not, but a new report reveals more details about Apple’s rumored 2016 MacBooks. More →
