MacBook Retina pricing, availability are now official

The new MacBook is sexy as can be, but how much are you going to shell out for it? It’s not going to come cheap, unfortunately. It is, however, a totally new addition to the MacBook lineup, so you have increased options. If you really want to grab one, they’ll be shipping April 10. The pricing starts at $1,299, and gets all the way up to $1,599. That’s not cheap, but it is supplemental to the rest of the lineup, so you don’t have to make any tough choices.

Apple’s new MacBook first to snag USB-C

Apple’s new MacBook first to snag USB-C

Apple's new super-slim MacBook has become the first notebook to use USB-C, doing away with all but a single port in the name of portability. Rather than having separate ports for power, data, and display, USB-C in fact condenses them all into one. The new connector is reversible, too, just as Apple did with Lightning on the iPhone.

Apple announces new, thin, Retina MacBook

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!

New MacBook has “Force Touch” trackpad

New MacBook has “Force Touch” trackpad

This isn't a Star Wars tie-in, and you don't have to be a Jedi to use the new MacBook for 2015. This is a new trackpad in the new MacBook, made to be what Apple's Phil Schiller suggests is an "incredible feat of engineering." Four individual force sensors exist under the pad, with a glass surface up top. Instead of "clicking," you'll be doing a sort of "push" more akin to what you do on a touchscreen - but don't call it a tap.

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. Several release dates have been attached to the project by earlier tipsters, but it's possible that the new Air could be announced at Apple's event next Monday, alongside the Apple Watch.

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.

Apple launches repair program for MacBook Pros with faulty GPU

Apple launches repair program for MacBook Pros with faulty GPU

If your MacBook Pro has what appears to be an issue with its screen, there may be reprieve for you. In some older MacBook Pros, a GPU supplied by AMD wasn’t up to snuff, and is causing some users to see lines or otherwise glitchy behavior. Now, Apple is going to fix those computers for you, even if they’re out of warranty. It’s a welcome announcement for those affected, as the screens are pretty useless under heavy strain, especially when editing video.

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.

Designer controls MacBook with nose, bypassing arm injury

Designer controls MacBook with nose, bypassing arm injury

A designer by the name of Michelle Vandy has begun using her nose to do her job on her computer. Instead of using her arms, wrists, and fingers to tap into graphic design, she's rigged up a tripod, a stand, and an Apple Magic Trackpad to construct what may be the world's first "Nose-pad." Without the use of this Nose-pad, Vandy might otherwise have had to give up on design altogether, entering a different working field where she'd not have been able to use her talents to such a fine degree.

New Microsoft Surface Pro 3 site aimed at MacBook converts

The Surface Pro 3 is a neat concept. Can you really replace a laptop computer with a tablet?
