It’s no question that Apple is hard at work developing the next iteration of MacBook Pros which is expected to arrive sometime early next year. However, computer manufacturers are hinting the next generation of MacBook Pros could be powered by Intel’s Sandy Bridge CPU. TUAW reports that computer manufacturers such as Acer, Gateway and Lenovo Read more…

TSA and MacBook Air Good to Go

TSA and MacBook Air Good to Go
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 Read more…

The Process Begins: MacBook Air Justification

The Process Begins: MacBook Air Justification
I spend most of my time working from home, and that means that I’m in front of my desk hammering away on my 15-inch MacBook Pro. I’ve often got 5-10 programs running simultaneously, which not only heats up my CPU, but causes the fans to run pretty heavy as well. It’s not a big deal Read more…

New MacBook Air Gets Gutted
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 Read more…

Cheap Wood
I love my MacBook Pro, but as stupid as this sounds, I didn’t expect to be taking it so many places. I know, a laptop is meant to be portable, but I just didn’t expect to have to lug it to work every day. Maybe I’m just dumb. Anyways, the top of my MBP isn’t Read more…

Rumor: New MacBook Air Soon

Rumor: New MacBook Air Soon
Oh, the MacBook Air. It’s thin and … well there’s not much else to say really. It doesn’t have an optical drive, only comes with 2GB of RAM that isn’t an upgradable option via Apple, and it’s $300 more than the base model 13-inch MacBook Pro which is faster and has more hard drive space. In other Read more…

The SSD Dillemma
I’ve got a bad case of “Ineedanewcomputeritis,” and it’s driving me nuts. A few months back, I upgraded the internal hard drive on my 15-inch MBP with a 500GB, 7200 RPM model, and I was pretty happy. But as things tend to go, as time went on, my hard drive got fuller and fuller until Read more…

The Levitating MacBook Pro Dock

The Levitating MacBook Pro Dock
I’m a huge fan of docks, but when I saw this one, I wasn’t quite sure what to think. Why? Well I’ve seen plenty of MacBook Pro docks, and there are certainly prettier ones out there, that’s for sure. Plus they’re cheaper, but we’ll get into that in a minute. What makes this dock – Read more…

OWC SSD Touted as Cheapest SSD Out There

OWC SSD Touted as Cheapest SSD Out There
The world of Mac solid state drives (SSD) is a bit controversial. I don’t have all the answers on this one, but what it comes down to is TRIM. From Anandtech: We run into these problems primarily because the drive doesn’t know when a file is deleted, only when one is overwritten. Thus we lose Read more…

MacBook Backpack Goodness: incase Backpack

MacBook Backpack Goodness: incase Backpack
I seem to have a problem with bags. I don’t know what the problem is really, but I always seem to be searching for the next big thing. A while back – pre Apple days, back – I purchased a Swiss Army backpack. This thing had everything I wanted and needed at the time, and Read more…
