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.
The annual Apple iStore sale is almost upon us, and will be available at all iStores nationally from 23 May to 9 June.
There’s a sense of deja vu as you approach Apple’s 2017 MacBook. It still sports a super-skinny wedge design that suggests Apple won’t be satisfied until its laptops are thin enough to be used as weapons by ninja. It’s still ridiculously light: 920g – or roughly the same as if some idiot glued two of your iPads together. And it still comes in space grey, gold, rose gold, or silver, and costs more ...[Read More]
If you’ve had your eye on an Apple MacBook, you may want to hang on for a month or so. A new report from ReCode claims that Apple is on track for an October MacBook announcement.

That’s right – s...[Read More]
Apple has offered an iMac with a staggering 5K-resolution display since 2014 and also has 4K iMacs available, yet its standalone Thunderbolt Display still sits at 1440p – plenty sharp, but certainly lesser by comparison. However, a refresh seems imminent: retailers are starting to show limited stock of the five-year-old monitor, and 9to5Mac‘s sources claim that a much-improved standalo...[Read More]
Longer battery life, better performance and faster storage, for no extra cash? Yes please. Apple’s just overhauled its ultra-thin 12in MacBook, swapping the old CPUs for some of Intel’s latest chips to give them a bit of a speed boost. As well as being faster, this new silicon uses less power, so you should be able to squeeze out an additional hour from a full charge. Thats 11 hours if you stick t...[Read More]
Yamaha’s Sport Ride concept car is something we’d ride, endlessly Yamaha’s teaser last week for their Tokyo Motor Show reveal of a sports car based on the company’s motorcycles (weird, we know) was worth the wait.
