Belkin Thunderbolt Express Dock Review

Belkin Thunderbolt Express Dock Review

After over a year of waiting, Belkin has finally released its Thunderbolt Express Dock. It was originally announced last year in January and was slated for a September 2012 release, but that obviously never happened. However, Belkin just launched the $299 dock yesterday, and we’ve taken the time to give it a good look-over and test it out for ourselves. Personally, as a MacBook Pro user who is constantly docking and undocking my laptop at my desk, I wanted to see if Belkin’s Thunderbolt Express Dock would make the whole process easier. Let’s find out how it fared.

Apple’s 2012

Apple’s 2012

Apple CEO Tim Cook promised a 2012 to remember, and with sweeping changes across the iOS and Mac ranges, new software and services, and more than a few courtroom battles, the Cupertino firm delivered. The new fourth-gen iPad with Retina display and its iPad mini sibling, along with the iPhone 5, cemented Apple's position as the benchmark against which new tablets and phones are measured. Yet it wasn't all smooth sailing, and the past twelve months saw Apple forced to wake up to a new position in the consumer electronics marketplace.

Apple iMac 27-inch (2012) Review

Apple iMac 27-inch (2012) Review

Apple doesn't change things for the sake of change, and that's why we've had to wait a few years for a redesign of the iMac. When a fresh model does arrive, though, it arrives in style: for 2012, the iMac is slimmer than ever, with a crisp new casing that borrows aerospace construction methods and iPhone display technology to wrap together a beautiful, slim computer that's pleasing to the eye whether or not it's powered up. Still, as Apple's mainstream desktop, the new iMac has to perform, too, and with space at a premium there are some interesting choices to be made as to what goes inside. Read on for the full SlashGear review.

Apple HDTV product tipped as “imminent”

Apple HDTV product tipped as “imminent”

It may very well be time that Apple introduces another new product, this time taking what they've already got on the market with the ThunderBolt display and the Apple TV set-top box and combining them into one next-level product. This product - or something like it - was tipped this week by Jefferies analyst James Kisner whose anonymous source spoke with a North American cable provider (aka he said, she said, down the line) who said they were "working to estimate how much additional capacity may be needed for a new Apple device on their broadband data network." Another possibility here is that the talks earlier today with Dish and Google may have leaked over into Apple's universe.

If Apple can ditch Intel, it will

If Apple can ditch Intel, it will

The Apple rumor-mill is cyclical, and one tale refuses to die: Apple ousting Intel from its MacBooks, and replacing x86 chips with ARM-based alternatives. The story surfaces periodically, just as it has done today, with titters of increasing "confidence" within Apple's engineering teams that Intel will be eventually ditched in favor of the company's own A-series SoCs as currently found within the iPad and iPhone. Not today, so the whispers go, but eventually, and what's most interesting is that we're likely already seeing the signs of the transition in Apple's newest models.

Apple iMac 2012 hands-on

Apple's iMac 2012 line-up has been revealed this morning, and those hoping for a compelling alternative to the new Windows 8 all-in-one PCs we've been seeing have had their wishes granted. Now incredibly thin - just 5mm at the tapered edge - and occupying 40-percent less volume than the slab-sided predecessors, the narrow iMacs are just as impressive in the metal as they are in photos. These are all-in-ones you almost can't believe contain a full computer; read on for our first impressions.

13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display detailed in full

Apple just unveiled a 13-inch MacBook Pro with the company's infamous Retina display. The 13-incher boasts a whopping 2,560 x 1,600 resolution, which is a 4x boost over the regular 13-inch MacBook Pro. Apple's Phil Schiller says the new 13-inch model weighs in at 3.5 pounds and is only 0.75-inches think. That makes it 20% lighter and almost a full pound lighter than the regular 13-inch model.
