Right now, the only OLED devices from Apple are the iPhones and the Apple Watch. However, there have been rumors suggesting that Apple could actually make the jump to mini LEDs for its other products, which is why we have to say we are a bit skeptical to learn about a new rumor from DigiTimes who claims otherwise.
A rumor from earlier this year suggested that Apple could be working on a “higher-end” Macbook Air. The MacBook Air has been praised by many as being an affordable and somewhat value for money entry into Apple’s ecosystem, but we suppose there are some who might be seeking a bit more power.
No thanks to Apple killing all the legacy ports in its MacBook lineup, users have since had to resort to dongles, adapters, and USB hubs to get some functionality back. Unfortunately, some third-party USB hubs have been found to be causing issues with MacBooks to the point where some users have actually ended up with bricked laptops.
For a while now it has been rumored that Apple could be working on a 14-inch MacBook Pro and according to the latest rumors from DigiTimes, it seems that the 14-inch MacBook Pro could be coming later this year. It is expected to be launched alongside the refresh of the 16-inch model where both models could sport mini LED displays.
Lenovo has refreshed its ThinkPad X13 ($1,139+) laptops with new ThinkPad X13 and X13 Yoga models. These laptops feature 16:10 displays with 1920×1200 or 2560×1600 resolutions, which seems like an excellent choice for battery life. Creative users have other Lenovo laptops to choose from, including the powerful ThinkPad P1 Gen3 we recently reviewed.The ThinkPad X13 series is geared towards productivity and has a full array of ports (USB-A, USB-C, HDMI, […]
Ever since Apple introduced USB-C and Thunderbolt ports to its MacBook laptops, they did so at the expense of other ports. As much as many had hoped to see the market flooded with USB-C devices, it isn’t necessarily that case even today, and many users are still having to use dongles and docks.
With Apple’s new M1 chipsets, many professionals are wondering how it holds up compared to Intel’s processors. After all, Intel has been more or less the industry standard for a while, and changing to a brand new platform could have the potential to negatively impact a professional’s workflow.
When it comes to a lot of tasks on our computers, more often than not we turn to third-party apps and tools for certain tasks. This is because it’s not reasonable to expect companies like Apple, Microsoft, or Google to include every possible feature, plus sometimes not all native solutions work the best.
If you happen to own a MacBook Pro from the 2016-2017 era, then you could be eligible for a free battery replacement. According to an Apple support document, it seems that a small number of MacBook Pros from that period in time are having some issues that prevents them from charging past 1%.
If you normally work at home using multiple monitor setups where you have two or maybe three displays, then going to work on a laptop with a single, small-ish display might seem a bit jarring and somewhat limiting. However, a company by the name of Expanscape has debuted a prototype laptop called the Aurora 7 that will solve all your problems, and then some.
Mining for cryptocurrency is essentially a race. The faster your machine is capable of solving the problems, the faster you get your cryptocurrency. This is why at one point in time, GPUs were suddenly in short supply as many miners started buying the best GPUs they could afford to make their mining rigs as powerful as possible.
When Apple’s M1 Mac computers were launched, many were quick to run the computer through its paces to see whether or not the new M1 chipsets could deliver as promised. To everyone’s delight, Apple’s M1 chipset not only delivered, but in some instances seemed to perform better than advertised.
At CES 2021, ASUS took the wraps off a bunch of new computers, but it seems that the company had more products that they did not announce. A report from Chrome Unboxed has revealed a device called the ASUS Chromebook Flip CM3000 that was recently spotted in a listing on German retailer Saturn’s website.
Google’s Chromebooks are usually seen as a lower-cost alternative laptop for those who need a laptop but don’t want to spend too much money. It is also perfect for those who don’t require too much from their devices or don’t need to run more resource intensive applications, like if you’re just using it for school work or handling office related documents.
The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold is the first commercial laptop with a foldable OLED display, making this 13-inch computer fit in an average purse. Beyond this technological feat, it might create new use cases and user habits, just like Lenovo’s 360-degrees hinge many years ago. Did Lenovo jumpstart a second form-factor revolution? Let us take a closer look.
Apple’s laptops and computers in general are made out of aluminum. This is more or less the standard choice of materials for a lot of electronics these days, but according to a patent discovered by Patently Apple, it seems that Apple could be interested in exploring other materials, such as titanium.
With our smartphones and tablets being able to connect to the internet using cellular connectivity, we actually have to wonder why such a feature isn’t as widely-available in laptops. There are cellular-capable laptops, but oddly enough, they aren’t as common as one might think even though the benefits of such devices are pretty obvious.
Microsoft and Apple’s rivalry dates back decades, even though Microsoft did help Apple through a tough time when Microsoft’s then-CEO, Bill Gates, bought $150 million worth of non-voting shares of Apple, and also gave them free-access to use Microsoft Office on Apple’s Mac computers.
Apple’s MacBook laptop design has been kept more or less the same for several years now, and while it is a nice design, it would be good to see Apple shake things up a bit. We have been hearing rumors that a redesign could be on its way, and now a new report from Bloomberg has revealed a potential “new” feature.
We have been hearing rumors that Apple could be planning on redesigning its MacBook Pro, but what about the MacBook Air? Apart from changing up the bezels for the display, the laptop has still pretty much maintained the same design and form factor. That could change either later in the year or possibly 2022.
