03/21/2012, Apple’s 27” iMac isn’t too bad of a computer, but one could make the argument that they could get a much cheaper Windows desktop with the same specs. Putting that aside, if you’re a huge Mac fan and you just love the iMac, you might be interested in checking out this iMac that has basically been coated in gold, 24 karat gold to be exact, and to top it all […]
12/08/2011, According to Wedge Partners analyst Brian Blair, he seems to think that Apple’s rumored television set will be built into the 2012 refresh of Apple’s all-in-one desktop solution, the iMac. This is based on his belief that instead of creating a brand new product, Apple could instead build off what they already have, i.e. the 27” iMac, and start build up from there by offering larger displays.
10/26/2011, Last week we reported that Catcher Technology’s plants in China were reportedly reopening in November. The company is responsible for the bulk of the aluminum unibody cases used for the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro and iMac, and based on reports, its temporary closure could result in a drop in shipments of 20% in October. The plant was previously forced to shut down and halt its operations due to complaints about […]
10/21/2011, If you have been following news about Apple, you’ve probably heard that some of their factories in China were forced to shut down due to the amount of pollution that these factories were producing. One of these factories belonged to Taiwanese manufacturer, Catcher Technology who provides 60% of Apple’s unibody enclosures for the MacBook Pro, MacBook Air and iMac all-in-one desktop. Naturally this will affect Apple’s ability to ship out […]
09/19/2011, Did you just buy yourself the latest iMac refresh in 2011? If you are, and assuming that Apple’s knowledge database was not glitched, you may be upset to find out that in less than a year of using your iMac, it appears that yet another refresh may be in order.
08/08/2011, Apple knows how important it is to deliver quality education to the next generation of minds in the country, starting with the first batch of Apple IIs being sent to libraries located all over the nation, and ever since then, there has been contributions made to the educational sector – although time and its entrophying quality has caused that to result in a bunch of aged machines whose time is […]
05/12/2011, Apple has laid the smackdown on those who want to perform third party hard drive upgrades in their Thunderbolt iMac line, virtually making it impossible to replace the main 3.5″ hard drive on the iMac unless you decide to go through Apple. In an analysis by Other World Computing (who incidentally, is a company that makes a living off selling hard drives and other upgrades for Apple’s Mac range), Apple […]
05/04/2011, And just like clockwork, in less than 24 hours after the new iMac was released, the folks over at iFixit have gotten their hands on the all-in-one computer and take it apart. While there’s nothing out of the ordinary inside the iMac (no, it’s not made of magic), the internals of the device are laid out neatly, which makes replacing the hard drive, RAM and optical drive a breeze. […]
05/03/2011, The Apple Store was down earlier today, and as usual people predicted that it was time for a new iMac to hit the store. They were right. Apple has officially announced the arrival of their next generation iMac all-in-one desktop. The new iMac features the latest quad-core processors, new graphics cards, Thunderbolt I/O technology and a new FaceTime HD camera. They tout this version of the iMac to be 70% […]
12/15/2010, It goes without saying that Apple will definitely redesign and refresh their range of notebooks and desktops once in a while, but each time that is about to happen, a rumor (or two) will surely start to swirl about. Well, the same can be said this time around, where a new report out of the Far East claims that Apple wants to release a revamped MacBook Pro and iMac models […]
12/07/2010, The folks over at Other World Computing are now offering a 3TB drive option for its 27-inch iMac upgrades, allowing users to have up to three times more internal storage than offered on current stock iMacs. The upgrade will still leave room for up to two SSD drives to be installed in place of the optical drive and the company also offers an option to replace the stock hard drive […]
10/12/2010, Many if not all recent Mac or Macbook computers have the ability to drive a 30″ display to its maximum 2560×1600 resolution. However, the plain vanilla DisplayPort to DVI adapter won’t let you do that. Instead you have to buy Apple’s $99 adapter that uses USB to bring extra juice and a Dual-DVI port to handle the extra bandwidth. I’ve never tried Apple’s version, but if you’re looking for an […]
10/01/2010, A report has surfaced, claiming that Sintek Photronics, a supplier of large touchscreen panels has begun to send samples to Cupertino for testing, fueling rumors that a touchscreen iMac is on the way. According to DigiTimes, the displays are projected capacitive touch panels and will use a new layering method, with the touch sensors integrated into the glass, instead of being layered on top, allowing for a thinner, lighter panel […]
