Apple Xserve No Longer Available Beginning January 31st, Mac Pro Server Introduced

Apple has been busy this Friday morning. Not only has the company officially announced that they are no longer making the Xserve available past January 31st, 2011, but they've also managed to sneak in a brand new Mac Pro Server onto the Apple Store. No surprise that Apple is already ahead of the guessing game as to how they would replace Xserve, even if the replacement isn't getting much of a release announcement (so far).

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 38 2010

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 38 2010

Welcome to this week's edition of the Week in Review! Early in the week Fujifilm unveiled a cool new hybrid viewfinder digital camera called the X100. The little digital camera has a 13.2-megapixel sensor and retro style that looks really nice. Some details on HTC's Android tablet surfaced early in the week. Those details point to a price of $790 and Tegra 2 for the brains of the device. That tablet will be a hard sale at that price I think.

Mac Pro 2010 Review

Mac Pro 2010 Review

Apple's updated 2010 Mac Pro line was a long time coming, but it certainly addressed would-be buyers' key complaint: the choice of processors. Now offering everything from a single Intel Xeon through to a pair of six-core chips, the new Mac Pro range claims to be "the most powerful, most configurable Mac ever." We've had a dual-processor quadcore Mac Pro on the SlashGear test bench for a couple of weeks; check out our full review after the cut.

Overclocked 2008 Mac Pro gets custom liquid-cooling [Video]

Overclocked 2008 Mac Pro gets custom liquid-cooling [Video]

Apple's Mac Pro is a beast of a machine, and more so when you overclock it, but the fan noise you end up with can be pretty intrusive.  The guys over at Asetek decided to see what they could do with their liquid-cooling components, taking a 2008 dual-CPU 2.8GHz Mac Pro - overclocked to 3.16GHz - with custom cooling and comparing it to a newer, stock 3.2GHz air-cooled model straight from Apple.

iMac Core i7 Review (Mid 2010)

iMac Core i7 Review (Mid 2010)

Apple's recent refresh of the all-in-one iMac range may not have concurred with all of the preceding rumors, but the main expectation was certainly met: faster processors than ever before. Fresh to the SlashGear test bench is the 27-inch iMac, with the flagship quadcore Intel CPU. Pairing a 2.93GHz Core i7 processor with 4GB of DDR3 memory and a 256GB SSD, it certainly promises high performance; it also makes for an expensive buy, $2,799 to specify the same spec as our review unit. Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.
