At the same time that OS X Lion premiered today, Apple also updated two of its product lines and introduced a third. (As expected.) Here are the full specs for all three. Oh, and guess what Mac product has completely vanished from the Apple Store…?
Apple’s line of MacBooks (the white plastic ones), MacBooks Airs, and Mac Minis are due for new models with upgraded technology under the hood. MacBooks in particular are overdue for a refresh, since it was May of last year that Apple last introduced new models.
While Apple is prepping upgraded Mac Book Pros, the MacBook Air and MacBook have been neglected by the news. Will the MacBook Air make the jump to Sandybridge and receive a new Core i3 processor from Intel or stay with the aging Core 2 Duo? Apple could go either way. CNET reports the MacBook Air […]
Many people start the new year off with a few resolutions (my personal resolution being 720p – I see an AppleTV coming soon) but I’m more interested in looking at the potential in tech companies, mainly Apple. What’s in store for us as consumers in 2011? My personal hope is the death of the optical […]
PhotoFast, manufacturer of a SSD upgrade kit for the MacBook Air has stopped all production of the unit because of a request from Apple. PhotoFast’s kit which used a Toshiba X-gale SSD and came in 64, 128 and 256GB capacities is no longer in production according to Daily Tech. PhotoFast, which is part of Apple’s […]
I hate travelling. I mean, I love it in concept, but I hate the process, particularly airport security. It used to be bad enough, but now with the TSA thinking that every bottle of water has dynamite inside, it can be an hour-plus long process to just get screened. Good news though for new MacBook […]

I love army bags, and I love things that are recycled from old goods. This particular goody falls right into both of those categories. It’s called the iSockit, and here’s the deets: The iSockit™ 11-inch MacBook Air case features eccentric sling-flap closure and oversized front pocket (measures about 6.5″x7″, 16.5×17.8cm). I designed the iSockit™ padded […]
I’m a car guy, and I love putting things together and taking them apart. That’s why I love the crew at iFixit. Every time a new Mac model comes out, they splay it out on the table and do an autopsy so that we all can see the goodies inside. In the case of the […]
I’ve talked before about my lust for small computers, particularly the 12-inch PowerBook. That’s why yesterday’s news about the new MacBook Air models was a welcome relief for me. But at the same time, a bit disappointing as well. The specs were just as the rumors pointed out, and that’s a good thing. The SSD […]
