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.

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 →

HP finally has a worthy response to the Retina MacBook

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.

How to get your laptop ready for virtual reality

The Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and Sony’s PlayStation VR are going to be some of the most exciting virtual reality headsets to buy this year. However, they require dedicated computers or consoles that have the advanced computational capacity for seamlessly rendering VR content. That means most people will need to either upgrade their desktops or purchase new ones to enjoy some of the best VR experiences coming to the living room.

But what about computer users who prefer laptops, including MacBooks? Should they purchase a computer just for consuming VR content and games? No, that might not the case, as there’s one cool accessory that might turn your notebook into a VR-compliant machine.

World’s most accurate Apple analyst drops major info on Apple’s early 2016 releases

The iPhone may be Apple’s primary revenue driver, but the Mac over the past few years has remained a steady and perhaps surprising contributor to Apple’s bottom line. In fact, the Mac today is responsible for a greater share of Apple’s revenue than any of the company’s other services or products, including the iPad.

Looking out over the next 12 months, Apple reportedly has a few exciting changes in store for its notebook lineup. According to reputable KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, and originally relayed by 9to5Mac, Apple will likely refresh its MacBook line sometime before June.
