The MacBook Air might be dying, but this sale is too good to pass up

Apple seems to be slowly pushing the MacBook Air into the deep end, with no updates in sight and the slimmer Retina MacBook threatening to upstage it. The writing might be on the wall, but really, that just means good sales for us.

B&H is selling the 13-inch Air with 128GB of storage for $750, and that price includes three years of AppleCare. That’s still one of the thinnest and lightest computers around, with years of guaranteed support, for $500 less than it should be.

Amazon’s big sale on Chromebooks has prices starting at just $169.99

There was a point in time where the only operating systems worth considering on a laptop where Microsoft’s Windows and Apple’s Mac operating system. But those days are now long gone. Google’s Chrome OS can handle work and play just as well as any Mac or Windows machine, and they offer One big benefit over their rivals: They’re much more affordable.

Amazon has a sale going right now that will save you up to $30 on 13 different already-discounted Chromebooks, dropping prices into “you’d be insane to not take advantage of this deal” territory. For example, Samsung’s hot Chromebook 3 notebook is now just $169.99 with 2GB of RAM or $179.99 with 4GB of RAM! More →

Tim Cook hints the MacBook Pro update we want is on the way

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 →

Go update OS X right now if you don’t enjoy being hacked

If you own a Mac, chances are you woke up this morning with an update notification from the App Store. You might have put aside this seemingly innocuous security update for later in the day, but take our advice: download and install it right now. Yes, I mean right this very second. Hit the update button.

Why? Because this is the same security update that hit iOS last week — the one that fixed vulnerabilities which could allow hackers to read your messages, trace your calls, collect your passwords and even track your location.

Instagram pic teases Microsoft’s redesigned Surface Book 2

Microsoft on Sunday took to Instagram to post a teaser image of the Surface Book, saying that Surface is “your key to success.” The company didn’t say anything about the photo, but people soon noticed there was something odd with the picture. It didn’t show the same Surface Book hinge that Microsoft introduced on the first model. Instead, the image hints at a significant design change coming in this year’s Surface Book 2. More →

Surface Pro 4 vs. MacBook Air

Microsoft keeps mocking the MacBooks it uses as quality benchmarks

Microsoft keeps mocking the MacBooks it uses as quality benchmarks

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.

MacBook Pro Graphics Card Upgrade

This device fixes the worst thing about the MacBook Pro

This device fixes the worst thing about the MacBook Pro

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.
