06/27/2011, The nice thing about MacBooks would be the multitouch trackpad, which pretty much functions like how the touch screen on the iPhone/iPod touch/iPad does. It incorporates various multitouch gestures, such as swiping and pinching. As cool as the concept is, one bad thing about it is that it’s limited to what Apple allows you do to do, which is where MagicPrefs comes in.
06/26/2011, Here is the clearest sign yet that Apple’s MacBook Air will be getting a refresh – after all, online retailer BestBuy.com has already halted shipment of its MacBook Air models as you can see above. This is compounded by rumors in recent months that newer MacBook Airs coupled with Sandy Bridge processors are already on the way (and subsequently, all new notebooks too will run on the Sandy Bridge platform). […]
06/24/2011, Ever thought about using your MacBook Air flipped 90-degrees like it were an open book? Well now you can. A developer named Nathan Stevens has come up with an app for the MacBook Air called the Mac Screen Rotate. It is a simple app that allows you to rotate the orientation of your MacBook’s display, which allows you to hold the device like you were reading a magazine of a […]
06/20/2011, Earlier this morning, we looked at the possibility of a black MacBook Air – but then it seems that a few hours can prove to be the vital difference between a rumor coming true or otherwise. Word has it that the MacBook Air will remain in its pristine silver color, although there is still some hope for that shade since new materials used to construct the updated MacBook Air doesn’t […]
06/20/2011, OK, so to introduce a new color to a particular device is nothing new – Nintendo has done it with their range of portable consoles since time immemorial, and with great success. Others have done so without experiencing a similar frenzy for demand, but when it comes to Apple products that have extremely limited color choices (apart from their iPod nano and shuffle, of course), so to hear whispers of […]
06/17/2011, As we all know the latest incarnation of the Mac OS X is Lion as revealed at Apple’s WWDC this year, and we know that it will be seeing a release some time this year but could it be because of OS X Lion that we will not be seeing refreshes of the Macbook Air line, at least not until the operating system is finalized? Prior to this piece of […]
06/13/2011, It is said that the upcoming refresh of the MacBook Air range will see Intel’s latest generation Sandy Bridge processors in action, in addition to the Lion operating system that might just see an already popular range of notebooks get even more popular. So much so that, the rollout of Lion is tipped to boost Apple’s thin-and-light notebook to build orders of around 1.5 million each quarter – according to […]
06/10/2011, If you happen to be a proud owner of the MacBook Air (it doesn’t matter which generation it is), then you would know that it already boasts quite a long amount of battery life, but like all things in life, everything must come to an end – eventually. The same applies to battery life in gizmos, which is the curse and bane of all devices even until today. Well, for […]
06/10/2011, Word on the street has it that the second generation MacBook Airs from Apple will see its mass production line started this month, targeting an initial build volume of around 400,000 models. According to Concord Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who informed AppleInsider that Cupertino has already placed orders up to 380,000 Sandy Bridge-based 11.6″ and 13.3″ MacBook Airs in June alone. Said analyst is touted to have accurate insight into […]
05/30/2011, Apple has a spanking new MacBook Bottom Case Replacement Program that will cater for MacBooks which shipped between October 2009 and April 2011, so owners of said white MacBooks who are “suffering” from peeling rubber cases will be able to obtain a free replacement of the entire case – never mind if it is still under warranty or not. How’s that for customer service?
05/27/2011, According to rumors from a Japanese Mac site, Macotakara, Apple has built a MacBook Air with an A5 processor and is testing it internally. In case you didn’t know, the A5 processor is the very same processor found on the iPad 2. An ARM-based SoC that’s known for its high-performance as well as low power consumption. Now there’s no proof or confirmations to these rumors, but it wouldn’t be too […]
05/25/2011, We’re all waiting for the announcement of the MacBook Air refresh, but in the meantime we still have our current MacBook Air laptops to use. While most of us carry it around just by itself, without a case or in a bag, there are some of us who like dressing up the ultrathin notebook with specially designed cases. Like this fancy “vintage case for MacBook Air”. Called the BookBook for […]
05/17/2011, Industry insiders, DigiTimes, believe that a refresh to the MacBook Air will be arriving this year in a couple of months – according to their sources. Apparently the Taiwan-based supply chain for Apple products will begin shipping new 11.6″ and 13.3″ MacBook Air models in late May in time for a June or July launch. The new MacBook Air notebooks will feature Sandy Bridge processors as well as Thunderbolt ports. […]
04/22/2011, After a highly successful first run of the ultra-light notebook that was introduced in October last year, it looks like Apple is ready to begin replacing them. According to reports and speculations, Apple will begin production of the next generation MacBook Air notebooks next month. Beginning this year, shipments of the MacBook Air notebooks have been slowly declining, and dropping even more when Apple introduced the new MacBook Pro notebooks. […]
