SanDisk may have just unveiled the perfect mobile storage solution

The USB Type-C port is an excellent innovation. It can deliver both power and high-speed data at the same time while letting device makers create even thinner laptops, tablets and smartphones. The port is already found on a variety of new gadgets, including the 12-inch Retina MacBook, a variety of Windows-based MacBook clones, and some of the hottest Android devices around.

But choosing USB-C devices also means you have to buy adapters or new gadgets that are fitted with these new connectors, including external storage solutions. Thankfully, SanDisk – well, Western Digital – is ready to save the day with a USB-C Dual Drive flash memory drive that can connect to a computer or smartphone via USB-C and USB 3.1. More →

It’s not just the iPhone that Apple’s rivals try to beat by copying. Apple also sets design standards for laptops, and everyone else is trying to come up with devices that feature MacBook-grade build quality and design.

Asus is the latest company to come up with a Retina MacBook killer, the brand new ZenBook 3. The device is clearly meant to compete against the 12-inch MacBook and the MacBook Air family, as the two devices were even mentioned on stage during Asus’s recent keynote.

Everything new on Apple’s updated 2016 MacBooks

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.

How Samsung, yes Samsung, might make the iPhone 7 faster

Macs may only account for a fraction of the PC market, but they’re still design and performance benchmarks that Apple competitors try to beat. HP is the latest company to come up with a laptop design that aims to top the Retina MacBook, but Apple is also expected to launch 2016 MacBooks that’ll be slimmer and faster than predecessors.

And Samsung is the company that may provide some of the critical components required to bump up performance. Similarly, it’s also Samsung that might help Apple make the iPhone 7 even faster than previous models. More →

The 12-inch Retina MacBook represents the pinnacle of Apple’s laptop design and engineering, a device that’s already been cloned by many competitors. Apple is rumored to launch 13-inch and 15-inch MacBooks later this year, but until that happens, HP wants to impress you with a new notebook that’s a worthy rival for Apple’s best looking PC yet.

The newly launched Spectre is a 13.3-inch laptop that HP says is the thinnest in the world. It brings over a bold new HP logo, what looks like amazing design, and promises solid performance. The price? About what a MacBook costs. More →

iPad Pro MacBook Review

An intriguing account from someone who replaced his Mac with an iPad

An intriguing account from someone who replaced his Mac with an iPad

Apple’s pitch for the iPad Pro is a very in-your-face approach. The company told us on stage during its iPhone SE keynote that the iPad Pro is the perfect replacement for old PCs, taking a shot at Microsoft but also offending plenty of Apple customers who still have old Macs that operate just fine.

Leaving marketing tactics aside, iOS has evolved to a place where it can become the default computing platform for many users. At the same time, the iPad is not quite where some professionals would like it to be, even though the iPad Pro is the best and most impressive iPad update Apple has released in years.

One Apple customer who switched to a 12.9-inch iPad Pro when it launched last November recently tried going back to his MacBook after all this time. He discovered almost immediately that OS X feels like an old operating system that simply doesn’t offer the versatility of iOS. More →

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 →
