Apple has decided to boot its 12in MacBook this week after introducing a new lower-cost MacBook Air and an updated 13in MacBook Pro. The previous-gen MacBook Air (that doesn’t feature Apple's Retina display) also won’t be available anymore.
Apple’s top laptops just received a big update -- its 15in and 13in MacBook Pro’s will launch with faster Intel processors.
Apple’s October 2016 MacBook Pro refresh got up the noses of a lot of people, with the company dropping the ports that made the notebook line a favourite with a certain type of user (anyone who, you know, wanted to connect equipment to the Pro for example). Then there were other considerations, like the hardware upgrade not being quite as impressive as users might have liked. Well, AppleR...[Read More]
We’ve seen Apple’s new MacBook Pro and protests about the ports aside (that’s a topic for another day but… can we have some ports, please, Apple?), people seem to be having a lot of fun with the Touch Bar. The new MacBook Pro’s Touch Bar has played host to Nyan Cat as well as games of Doom (the original one) but here’s something a little more practical. A workin...[Read More]
Following the news that Apple in the US is discounting the plethora of USB-C adaptors it offers, the Core Group has told Stuff it’ll be doing likewise. Apple’s move is largely a response to the opprobrium directed at it by consumers following the announcement of the three new MacBook Pros, all of which eschew traditional ports like USB, HDMI and an SD card slot for Thunderbolt 3 ports ...[Read More]
Apple’s MacBook Pro series is back in the media thanks to the company’s announcement of the new “Touch Bar”. Announced last Thursday, the Touch Bar uses retina display and multitouch technology to replace the MacBook Pro’s top row of static function keys. It might seem like a simple idea, but it builds on a long history of research on what is referred to as “human–computer interaction”. The featur...[Read More]
Get them while you can: Apple has, quietly and without fuss, killed off the 2012 non-Retina MacBook Pro in the States, meaning that any stock around the world will be sold off and when it’s gone, it’s gone. It’s hardly a surprise that Apple has taken this route. The 2012 MacBook Pro is (or rather, was) the oldest device in Apple’s lineup up until the culling and Apple is al...[Read More]
Fans of Apple’s portable powerhouse notebook computer, the MacBook Pro, have been clamoring for an update… and their wish has finally come true. Apple’s unveiled three new MacBook Pros, two 13in models and a 15in one. As we’d expected there’ve been various updates under the hood, but there are two new features (on one of the 13in models and the 15in) that really leap ...[Read More]
Hey, you know what’s long overdue? A MacBook Pro update to go along with all of the lovely new phone tech that we’re so taken with this year. Hey, guess what? Apple may have a MacBook Pro update in store for us. Rather soon, too, if reports from MacRumours prove to be accurate. According to the Apple-centric website, new MacBook Pro models are on their way. A few obstacles, like macOS ...[Read More]
We’ve long been fond of Cape Town company Houdt and its range of beautiful, wooden covers and tech accessories. In the early days, the company focused its efforts on phone covers almost exclusively, and limited itself to the big two: Apple and Samsung. We hadn’t checked in with Houdt for a while, and when we popped over to its site recently we were pleased to find it now offers covers ...[Read More]
We’re no strangers to Apple getting rid of members of its product lineup. Something new will hit the market and something old will just disappear, as though it never existed, save for a few old warrantee claims. The non-Retina Macbook Pro, though there has been no official announcement, could be one of these. Several reports in the States claim that Apple is going around and removing legacy ...[Read More]
Tired of the iRumour Mill serving up the same old iPhone 7 speculation for lunch? Luckily for you, today’s special is MacBook flavoured. According to the latest rumours courtesy of 9to5Mac, the next generation MacBook Pro will be Apple’s thinnest and lightest yet. This is good news for tech journalists whose shoulders have been wrecked carrying their Pros around convention centres over...[Read More]
