MacBook-to-tablet convertor Modbook is back with a new model, the Modbook Pro X, turning the latest MacBook Pro into a pen-enabled graphics powerhouse for designers and artists. Building on the 15.4-inch Pro which Apple updated yesterday, the new Modbook slate repositions the 2880 x 1800 Retina display into a new form-factor complete with shortcut keys on the back.
Apple has finally rolled out the its refresh of its MacBook Pro with Retina Display line. The slightly revamped specs match what was leaked from China yesterday, with the absence of a new super-powered model. This time, however, we also get to see what has changed with the 13-inch models as well.
A refresh of Apple's 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro models might be on its way, boasting of beefier specs at almost no extra cost. The Cupertino-based company will also be expanding that line with a total of four models to choose from. That is, if this leaked photo from the company's store in Chongqing, China is to be given credence.
This morning Apple put out a video spot engaging with a wide variety of MacBook Air stickers and skins. These stickers surround the lit-up Apple logo at the back of your MacBook display, often using the logo in odd and creative ways. What we’re going to do here is to tap into the sources for these stickers for you as best we can.
Working with a MacBook Pro or MacBook Air released in the past few years means having an SD card slot for quick data transfer. What we’re looking at today is the relatively unknown world of 3rd-party products aiming to make use of that slot for non-traditional purposes. With the Transcend JetDrive Lite 360, we’re expanding storage for our MacBook at a fraction of the cost of built-in storage.
It seems that Apple is ready to turbo charge the display capabilities of its current hardware lineup with the upcoming OS X 10.9.3 update. Spotted by beta testers is a new setting that enables native resolution on 4K display as well as 4K output at 60 Hz on 2013 Retina MacBook Pros.
When we first heard that we’d be able to play many of our favorite games generally relegated to Windows through the cloud to a variety of platforms, including smartphones, tablets, and OS X-toting Apple notebooks, we were skeptical. This week the team behind OnLive’s cloud gaming initiatives have introduced CloudLift, a subscription service in which you’re paying for the right to stream games you already own straight from OnLive’s remote servers. As it turns out, even in Beta mode, this environment is quite impressive.
The newest 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pros have a lot going for them, but many users discovered some problems upon frequent usage. Over time, threads on these problems grew to substantial size on Apple's product forums, and Apple had acknowledged that a problem existed with a temporary solution. Though that solution helped affected users, a permanent fix has now been released.
Back in June 2012 we described the original 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display as "the gold standard" for high-end notebooks; now, Apple is back with its refreshed version, swapping in Intel's latest Haswell processors and graphics, but keeping the high-resolution display. Unlike the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina, the 15-inch model doesn't slim down any, but then again the meatiest Pro has never really been about portability alone. Instead, it aims to be the powerhouse desktop-replacement that you can bring with you, and with a $200 cut to the sticker price it sounds all the more appealing. Has the 2013 refresh kept the most serious Pro at the top of its game? Read on for the full SlashGear review.
Don't purchase a MacBook Pro this late 2013 season expecting to be able to repait it on your own any time in the near future - at least not by the judgement of the team at iFixit. They've made with the teardown of both the MacBook Pro 13-inch and 15-inch units from this most recent season, and the results point toward some of the least user-friendly innards on the market. If you're not about repairing the hardware later on in the life of the machine's wear-and-tear yourself, you'll need no worries at all.
