13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display likely coming soon

Once we got our hands on the original 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display, it seemed almost inevitable that Apple would release another iteration of the device. Today a note has come through from Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI, an analyst group who suggests that a 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display might only be three months away. This information also ties in with NPD DisplaySearch analysis says via Richard Shim and Jeff Lin, both of them suggesting that a 13.3-inch panel was already being produced.

MacBook teardown — Apple packed a lot in that tiny frame

MacBook teardown — Apple packed a lot in that tiny frame

A feat of engineering on many levels, Apple’s new MacBook is also a computer you won’t be repairing yourself. According to iFixit, there might be no hope if something goes south on your new MacBook. In running the MacBook through their teardown process, the team at iFixit was befuddled by MacBook’s solid construction. Sounds counterintuitive, but when you’re using a bunch of adhesive and proprietary screws, that’s bound to be the case. Also, that tiny logic board has no hope for swapping components.

Report: Apple sold 48,000 new MacBooks on Friday

Report: Apple sold 48,000 new MacBooks on Friday

When the MacBook was announced by Apple at their ‘Apple Watch event’ earlier this year, we were taken aback by the new direction Apple was taking us in. A single port and all kinds of redesigned stuff (like a new keyboard and touchpad) was/is the future, but are we ready for it? Our own review was positive, with Editor in Chief Vincent Nguyen saying it was wonderful for travel (he would know, too). Now we know (unofficially) how many feel the same way.

Turns out, the gold MacBook is what people really want

Turns out, the gold MacBook is what people really want

It might no longer be unusual to find a gold Apple gadget, but it turns out the color is still in high demand, with the new MacBook Retina seeing very specific shipping delays depending on your taste in case. The 12-inch ultraportable - with its contentious single USB-C port - went on sale overnight alongside the Apple Watch, though where just about every variation of Apple's new smartwatch is showing long delays, the same isn't true for the MacBook. Turns out, people really, really wanted a gold notebook.

Apple Store is back along with the Apple Watch, new MacBook

Apple Store is back along with the Apple Watch, new MacBook

Well, that was definitely quick. In fact, you could say it was just a wee bit late. The Apple Store is back in business and to the surprise of no one, new products are available for grabs. Sort of. While you can indeed already order the new MacBook, the Apple Watch is a different matter entirely. You can put in an pre-order now if you already know the right configuration you want, or schedule an appointment to try it out. When you will actually get it on your wrists, however, is a different story.

No, the new MacBook (and its single USB-C) isn’t for everyone

No, the new MacBook (and its single USB-C) isn’t for everyone

More controversial than the keyboard, more divisive than the battery life: the thing that's causing the greatest number of arguments about the new Retina MacBook is its paucity of ports. A single USB-C on the left side of the notebook isn't, as Vincent observed in our own review of the 2015 MacBook, a deal breaker, but not everyone is quite so ready to be convinced. It's a legitimate concern, even if in the grand history of tech it's not a new one.

MacBook Retina Review – The Portable Performer

MacBook Retina Review – The Portable Performer

Well it's about damn time the MacBook grew up. For years now, many of us OS X devotees have peered over the fence with envious eyes as Windows machines were given far more portable form-factors. Lenovo has been leading the pack in svelteness, and Microsoft's Surface Pro 3 has been appealing with its detachable keyboard, but at the end of the day Windows simply doesn't do it for me. The arrival of the new MacBook, however, meant those days of coveting notebooks could be long gone, with Apple taking the proven design of the MacBook Air and cutting out every last scrap of excess until - for the most part - only the features that matter remain. That's the theory, at least; I took the MacBook on the road to see if it was also the same in practice.

New MacBook vs MacBook Air: Battle of the ultraportables

New MacBook vs MacBook Air: Battle of the ultraportables

Until this week, the portable Mac question had a pretty straightforward answer: the MacBook Air was the go-to machine for most. Now, the new MacBook throws a slinky aluminum spanner into the mix. Revealed on Monday, the fanless 12-inch notebook takes what we loved about the Air - its waifish build, premium design, and lengthy battery life - and distills something even more portable from it, throwing in a Retina display and a controversial port decision along the way. Since then, plenty of people have been asking whether MacBook Air or MacBook is the way to go for those on the move.

Five compromises to consider with the 2015 MacBook

A new, shiny MacBook. Sounds amazing, except it might not be for everyone. There’s a lot going for Apple’s awesome new MacBook; it’s thin, Retina, and that new trackpad is pretty impressive.

It does, and before you start queueing up for a new computer, take a second to read this article. You’ve got some thinkin’ to do.

This is the new Apple MacBook: Hands-on

This is the new Apple MacBook: Hands-on

With a newly thinned-out body, trackpad, keyboard, and parred-down collection of ports, the New MacBook is truly simplified. This device is not a MacBook Air - and it's certainly not a MacBook Pro. This device sits beside the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro in a lineup that'll go through 2015 and beyond. Will the MacBook replace the MacBook Air eventually? Maybe. For now, it looks like this notebook is going to stand on its own as a rather unique piece of work - a new generation of MacBook hardware, to be sure.
