Simple question. However, not exactly one that has a simple answer to it. Whenever you try to find that answer in the tech specs when buying an iMac (as an example) you will not be able to locate the actual manufacturer of the drive. Here is what I mean. I happen to have seen Macs […]
If you’re just just dropped some serious money on a new Mac, whether be a super-portable Mac Mini, insanely powerful Mac Pro or a sweet iMac Retina with a 5K display, congratulations!

Here’s a simple, albeit probably useless, question for you: How Much C4 Will a Mac Pro Hold? Interestingly enough, while the Mac Pro is probably one of the best designs Apple has come up with, it has been the subject of so much “fun”. It’s been called the most expensive trash can you can buy […]

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 […]
Oh, the Mac Pro. Device of people who really need to crank out resource-intensive projects. It’s what some video editors prefer for editing their movies, and what some designers love for working on magazines and other work. It’s also the price of a used car, and with the latest update, a grand more expensive than […]
I was complaining just a few weeks ago about the lack of updates for the Mac Pro. Turns out, I just had to wait a little bit. Now, I could ramble on about how quick these things are, but let me just sample the traditional Apple speak for this one: he new quad-core Mac Pro, […]
I was going to bed last night, trying to figure out the ideal setup for my home office. It’s not that I’m dissatisfied with my 15-inch MacBook Pro, but it’s that I’m spending a lot of money on external drives and storage, as well as using up desktop real estate at an alarming rate. I […]

It’s the most publicity the Mac Mini has received from Apple in a LONG time… AppleÂ® today announced updates to its iMacÂ® and MacÂ® […]
Apple is reportedly deliberately reducing current iMac shipments which, if true, could be an indication that new iMac updates are a few weeks away. Both the iMac and Mac Pro lines are in need of a refresh, and desktop sales for Macs are beginning to sag slightly, so updated internals on both lines would not […]
Apple just issued the press release for their 3rd Quarter Financial results, and things couldn’t be going any better for Macs. Revenue is up 38% year-over-year, and Mac Sales are at an all time high. Apple shipped 2,496,000 Macs during the quarter, representing 41% growth from the previous year. That’s absolutely amazing. Full press release […]

Some seem to think that now that the “format war is over” that Apple should be saddling into the Blu-Ray bandwagon (which they originally committed to at the start of the Blu-Ray format) and […]
