New ‘ultra-thin’ MacBooks are coming in second half of the year

Apple’s MacBooks are due for a substantial refresh this year, at least when it comes to design. The company is rumored to be ditching the MacBook Air line and while making the MacBook Pro thinner than ever and similar in design to the 12-inch Retina MacBook. Refreshed 13-inch and 15-inch ultra-thin MacBooks were expected in the second quarter, but a new report says the machines are going to be launched only at some point in the second half of the year.

The MacBook Air might be dying, but that’s a good thing

A new report suggests that Apple plans to kill off the MacBook Air line this year, and focus instead on the 12-inch Retina MacBook and slimmer-than-ever MacBook Pro models. The company is yet to announce its 2016 MacBook lineup soon, but this new report is in line with what a previous rumor claimed – that Apple will launch 13-inch and 15-inch MacBooks with designs inspired by the 12-inch MacBook released last year.

What an ultra-slim 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro might look like (spoiler: amazing)

Apple last year amazed the world with an incredibly thin new MacBook design. The all-metal 12-inch Retina MacBook comes with various technical advancements that allowed Apple to make a thinner laptop than ever before. Rumors now say that Apple will take the same design and apply it to bigger laptops this year. The company will reportedly soon launch 13-inch and 15-inch notebooks that will be included either in the MacBook, Air or Pro families.

While there aren’t any leaks to show us what a 15-inch ultra-slim MacBook might look like, graphic designer Martin Hajek’s got us covered. More →

MacBook Pro Air Storage Upgrade

Double your MacBook’s storage in under three minutes with this tiny device

Double your MacBook’s storage in under three minutes with this tiny device

Apple has recently revealed it’s still selling a lot more MacBooks than expected and is continuing its positive growth in a PC business where sales are declining. But MacBooks aren’t cheap, and sometimes users end up choosing entry-level options that have limited storage.

Rather than purchasing pricier memory upgrades from Apple, you can always choose to upgrade the SSD drive in your laptop yourself, but that involves the hassles of actually opening up the laptop or paying someone to do it for you. Alternatively, you could buy an external hard drive, but you’d have to carry it with you at all times. And yes, there’s always the cloud with its unlimited resources, but that means you need a constant Internet connection.

But what if you could double your MacBook’s storage in less than three minutes with a push of a button and avoid any hassles related to alternative storage solutions? More →

MacBook Pro Surface Book Switch Guide

Microsoft’s ‘ultimate laptop’ pays ultimate compliment to Apple

Microsoft’s ‘ultimate laptop’ pays ultimate compliment to Apple

When’s the last time you remember seeing a Windows PC maker post an official “How to switch from Mac” page on its website? You know, the kind of guide that basically acknowledges that Apple MacBooks can be vastly superior to PC alternatives? The type of guide you’d expect if Macs accounted for the majority of available computers? That’s right, you don’t expect to see that on a PC vendor’s site.

But that’s exactly what Microsoft has done for the Surface Book. The “ultimate laptop” is essentially paying Apple an ultimate compliment, as Microsoft is actively trying to convert Mac users with its own high-end personal computer. More →

Just how fast is the Surface Book compared to the MacBook Pro?

Microsoft wants you to think its new Surface Book absolutely smokes Apple’s MacBook Pro in terms of performance — but does it? You won’t be surprised to learn that this question simply isn’t easy to answer given all the variables that pop up when running performance tests for both laptops. PCWorld gave it a shot, however, and tried to conduct the fairest apples-to-apples comparison of the Surface Book and the MacBook Pro as it could… and even then it ran into some difficulties in delivering a definitive answer.

MacBook Pro Surface Book Price

Why is it so hard for Microsoft’s Surface Book to compete with Apple?

Why is it so hard for Microsoft’s Surface Book to compete with Apple?

When thinking about Apple computers, many buyers worry about the expensive price tags. Whether it’s the new 12-inch Retina MacBook or a MacBook Pro, Apple sets prices that aren’t necessarily within reach for many users. However, over the years, Apple has not increased prices for some of them and even slashed entry costs for other models. While that might not be apparent from year to year, it’s more than clear when comparing MacBooks to their biggest rival yet, Microsoft’s Surface Book, which makes the MacBook Pro look cheaper than ever.

Does Surface Book really crush the MacBook Pro? Microsoft’s bold claim has a big asterisk

Microsoft woweed its audience earlier this week with the announcement of its Surface Book, which is basically a beefed up version of the Surface Pro 4. Dubbed as the “ultimate laptop,” the new computer is an impressive 13.5-inch Windows 10 tablet and one of Microsoft’s best creations to date.

But the company apparently also misrepresented what the Surface Book can do in terms of performance, especially when suggesting the device can offer twice the performance of the MacBook Pro. More →
