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.
Intel is typically associated with PCs. The company’s processors are almost always the default choice whether it comes to custom builds or premade computers. However, in the recent years, we’ve actually seen AMD on the rise, plus there is also Apple’s new direction in which they will be ultimately ditching Intel’s processors for their own custom chipset.
The vast majority of laptops out there still use LCDs as their display of choice. There is a reason why, and that is because LCDs are cheaper to produce, especially at larger sizes. This isn’t to say that OLED laptops don’t exist, but LCD is still a much popular configuration. However, Samsung is hoping to change that, and then some.
The problem with laptop screens is that it forces us to look down. Also, given their size, there are a lot of times when we find ourselves having to adjust the angle of the screen to suit our sitting position. However, Microsoft is hoping to change that by creating a laptop display that can adjust itself automatically.
Apple’s current design for its laptops is getting a bit old. While it’s a solid design and there’s nothing much to dislike about it, we reckon it’s due for a change. We have heard rumors that a redesign could be coming, and now analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is sharing some of those design changes.
When Apple first introduced the Touch Bar in its MacBook Pro, they heralded it as a new way for users to interact and use their laptops. In theory, it was pretty sound. Having a dynamic touchscreen display instead of physical keys meant that users could do more things with their computers, access shortcuts, and more.
Many MacBook users lamented when Apple decided to ditch MagSafe for charging over USB-C. One of the upsides of MagSafe was that it was quick and easy to connect and disconnect, and also prevented issues like tripping over the cable and dragging your laptop down to the ground with you.
It seems that many companies are starting to catch on that gamers who like to game on laptops don’t necessarily want their laptops to be big and bulky and garish with RGB lights blinking and pulsating all over. So much so that ASUS has since unveiled what could possibly be the company’s lightest gaming laptop to date.
