iMac 2013 sees iFixit teardown: SSD slot free for upgrade

The teardown team at iFixit has taken the time to give a full run-down to the iMac reboot series appearing this week from Apple. What you'll find is a build quite similar to last year's collection of iMac devices, with a few exceptions - beyond that of the obvious upgrades. These models work with new Intel 4th generation Core processors - that's Haswell - along with several display sizes and the ability o work with a Fusion Drive.

Apple has refreshed the iMac with Intel's "Haswell" fourth-gen Core i5 and i7 processors, along with updating graphics, connectivity options, and boosting the speed of the all-in-one desktop's flash storage. The 2013 iMac is outwardly the same as the existing model, with a slimline aluminum and glass casing offered in 21.5- and 27-inch display variants, but inside there's a choice of Intel's latest processors with up to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M graphics, along with WiFi 802.11ac.

iMac Haswell refresh tipped for June or July

Apple's WWDC 2013 keynote takes place today (we'll be there liveblogging it, of course), and we've heard a lot of chatter about possible refreshes happening to the MacBook line, as well as the Mac Pro, which has been neglected in recent years. However, the iMac is said to be receiving new internals courtesy of Intel's new Haswell chips that are expected to arrive either this month or next.

Dear Apple: Where Is My Mac Pro?

Dear Apple: Where Is My Mac Pro?

As I sat here today thinking about what I should write for my latest column here on SlashGear, I was distracted. I didn’t look at the latest news, like I usually do, and I wasn’t particularly interested in anything in particular. My mind was entirely dominated by one thought: the computer I was about to write the column on.

As I write this, I’m working on a Mac Pro that I bought several years ago. At the time, the computer was state-of-the-art and capable of handling all kinds of tasks. For me, it was a perfect solution: it offered me the flexibility to run three monitors, had the power to handle some video editing, and was running OS X – an operating system, I believe, is superior to Windows.

Apple now selling wall-mountable iMacs for $40 extra

Apple now selling wall-mountable iMacs for $40 extra

One problem with the new iMacs was that there was no easy way to mount the all-in-one to the wall, since they didn't support a standard VESA mount. A lot of users like to save desk space and stick their displays to the wall, but there was really no easy way to go about that with the new iMac, unless you could do a bit of clever hacking. However, Apple has released an option specifically for that niche and is now offering iMacs with a built-in VESA wall mount adapter.

The Apple Shop name change: computer giant it isn’t

Today an announcement has been made that the cider and apple-related food and goods store "The Apple Shop", located in Norwich, England, will be changing its name after several years of calls by Apple computers users looking for technical support. And yes, today is indeed a slow news day, if you were wondering. The owner of this institution Geoff Fisher has spoken with the BBC saying that he's making the name change after 20 years with the same name of his own accord - and he's not mad about it. On the contrary, he's actually been quite amused, for the most part.

State of the Union includes “making Macs in America” mention

State of the Union includes “making Macs in America” mention

This year's State of the Union address included no less than a shout out by President Obama to Apple for bringing manufacturing jobs back to the USA. In addition to speaking about several other big companies that will be doing similar things in the near future, Obama noted the positive influence Apple's move will have on the United States. Apple CEO Tim Cook sat in the First Lady's box for the speech, a traditional area in which guests mentioned in the address are invited to sit.

After Apple’s 2012, a “prolific” 2013 could shake the industry

After Apple’s 2012, a “prolific” 2013 could shake the industry

This week Apple's Tim Cook made no effort to hide his excitement over the success Apple has had over its first fiscal quarter of 2013, letting investors know that it's largely because of the products of 2012 that this good time for the company is driven into the future. Back when Cook promised us big things in 2012 early last year, we saw new iterations of essentially every product Apple had on the market, along with a couple new ones to boot. Cook's affirmation here at the beginning of 2013 could very well mean big things for the company through the next 12 months as far as production goes - just as long as the supply chain Apple relies on doesn't get in the way.
