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.

Apple announces new, thin, Retina MacBook

After breaking new ground with ResearchKit, Apple has reinvented their existing MacBook platform. “The definition of portability has changed in the last several years, led by iPhone and iPad” said Apple CEO Tim Cook. “We challenged ourselves to reinvent the notebook”. They did, too. A gorgeous new MacBook Air landed today, and it’s — it’s stunning. More or less, it lines up with rumors we’d heard about previously, but in being official, we now have reason to get excited. For the fashionable, it now comes in different colors, too -- silver, space grey, and gold!

12-inch MacBook Air Retina now tipped for Q2

12-inch MacBook Air Retina now tipped for Q2

The well-whispered 12-inch MacBook Air, thinner and Retina resolution in comparison to the existing ultraportable, will begin shipping in Q2 2015 a new report suggests. Rumors of the new notebook have circulated for some time, the 12-inch form-factor a compromise in size between the current 11- and 13-inch MacBook Air.

Apple’s March 9 event — more than just a watch?

Apple’s March 9 event — more than just a watch?

Now that we’ve got our invites for the Apple event on March 9 — which is almost assuredly for the Apple Watch — what else might we find at that time? Though it’s entirely possible Apple will do nothing more than discuss the Apple Watch (and all the behind-the-scenes changes they’ve made to go along with it), the company always seem to have ‘one more thing’ up their sleeve. So what could that be? Anyone’s guess is good enough, but we’re wondering when that MacBook Air refresh might pop up.

New report tips Apple Watch release in March, 12in MacBook Air in Q1

Our 2015 calendars are about to turn over to February and there's still no confirmed launched date for the Apple Watch. As a result, speculation on when the touchscreen wearable will hit shelves is beginning to reach a fervor. Fear not, however, as Ming-Chi Kuo, the analyst with a mostly reliable track record, is here to contribute to the prediction that the Apple Watch will begin shipping in March. Even more, Kuo says the much-discussed 12-inch MacBook Air will launch before the end of 2015's first quarter.

12-inch MacBook Air display (allegedly) surfaces in gallery

Rumor has it that a new MacBook Air is inbound, and that it'll be bringing with it a 12-inch display with a total size more akin to the 11-inch model. Such is said to be accomplished by shrinking down the bezels on the display, the latter of which has reportedly surfaced in a series of images including comparison shots with other Apple devices. The images show what appears to be a small MacBook Air display sans the rest of the computer, and while it should all be taken with a grain of salt, we've the details after the jump.

According to a new report from 9to5Mac, a new MacBook Air is coming. The new computer is alleged to have a12-inch screen, but remain about the size of the 11-inch model via reduced bezels on all sides.

MacBook Air 2015’s killer feature may be a lack of “click”

MacBook Air 2015’s killer feature may be a lack of “click”

The MacBook Air hasn't changed in a massive way for the past several years. It hasn't really needed to. Apple's PC sales have done exceedingly well in the recent past - since the MacBook Air was launched, really. Now it might be time for a new design in the form of tiny feature changes. The first - and perhaps largest - of these is a click-less TrackPad. This wouldn't be a big deal in a PC - the "tap to click" feature has been in play for several generations - but for Apple computers, it's relatively new.
