With this brand new universe for the Twitter king you'll get Retina Mac Support, integration with your Notification Center, and even syncing with iCloud - of course you'll need 10.8 Mountain Lion for that.

MacBook Air 13-inch Review (mid-2012)

Apple's MacBook Air may have fallen into the shadow of the new MacBook Pro with Retina Display at their WWDC 2012 launch this past week, but the updated ultraportable has plenty going for it. A proven design favorite, and undoubtedly the inspiration for a legion of Windows-powered ultrabooks, the MacBook Air now gets a fresh batch of processors in the shape of Intel's latest Ivy Bridge chips, along with a general refresh to the spec sheet. Is that enough to keep the MacBook Air at the top of the ultraportable tree? Read on for the full SlashGear review.

MacBook Air 13-inch core i5 Review (mid-2011)

Apple's MacBook Air left many mobile users with a difficult decision back in late 2010. The unibody ultraportable was certainly beautiful, but its ULV processor left some wary that OS X might not be able to keep up with their lifestyle.

iMac Core i5 3.10GHz review (mid 2011)

iMac Core i5 3.10GHz review (mid 2011)

It's been less than a year since Apple's last iMac refresh, but thanks to Intel's 2011 Sandy Bridge update the aluminum all-in-ones had been looking a little last-gen. That all changed this past week, with a quad-core refresh across the board and a new set of AMD Radeon graphics chips to match.

MacBook Pro 15-inch Review (early 2011)

Apple's MacBook Pro refresh last week didn't get a press event with huge fanfare, but it's arguably the most important update to the notebook range in some time. Bringing in Intel's 2011 Core processor range across the board, and spicing up the larger models with AMD discrete graphics, the new versions may look the same but they promise a huge leap in performance.
