If there has been one constant criticism of today’s gadgets and electronics, is that for the most part they are not easy to repair. This is a contribution of many factors, such as to dissuade third-party repairs, encouraging customers to upgrade instead of repairing, and also a desire to slim everything down, which complicates the removal process of components.
Just last week, Apple announced a refresh of its MacBook Air laptops where it came with the latest Intel processors on board. However, it seems that if you wanted a more powerful machine, you could even consider the 2018 iPad Pro. This is according to benchmarks shared by Jason Snell on Six Colors in which he found that the 2018 iPad Pro actually outperforms the MacBook Air.
One of the biggest complaints about Apple’s MacBook laptops in recent years was its keyboard. Several years ago, Apple tried to introduce a new butterfly switch keyboard to its laptops, but unfortunately it proved to be more trouble than it was worth. It was only in 2019 that Apple finally did away with the butterfly keyboard and replaced it with a scissor switch mechanism.
Thinking about getting a new MacBook Air? If you are, you might want to hold off just a bit because according to a recent report from MacRumors, they have heard from a source that a refresh of the laptop could arrive as early as next week, so if you can hold off for at least one more week, it might be a good idea to do so.
The idea of being able to interact with our devices without touching it isn’t anything new. In fact, Google’s Pixel 4 series introduced Motion Sense, where users could interact with the phone without having to physically touch it, and now it looks like Apple could be exploring a similar idea for future MacBook laptops.
Earlier this month, a student was reported to have fallen victim to a scam, where he thought he was purchasing a brand new MacBook laptop, but instead ended up with two bottles of lemonade. Unfortunately, it seems that despite these scams being made public, it looks like the scam has claimed another victim.
While no one has doubted the power that Apple’s MacBooks can put out, one of the problems with the older models is the use of the butterfly keyboard switch mechanism that resulted in many a dead keyboard. Apple later changed it when they launched the 16-inch MacBook Pro in 2019 with a “new” scissor switch design.
For several years now, Apple has maintained the design of its MacBook laptops, where some of the more major design changes include new color options, a built-in OLED display above the keyboard, and a new 16-inch display. But for the most part, on the outside, the MacBooks have kept that look for many years now.
According to long-standing rumors, Apple is said to be working on creating an ARM-based MacBook laptop. Given that benchmarks of Apple’s more recent mobile chipsets have shown them to be incredibly powerful, it’s not surprising that Apple could be toying with the idea of harnessing that power and putting it into a laptop.
When Apple announced the 16-inch MacBook Pro, they dispensed with the 15-inch model. However, despite the larger screen, Apple managed to maintain the overall size thanks to the slimmed down bezels. Now it looks like Apple’s 13-inch MacBook Pro could be next on the chopping block.

There is the popular saying where if something is too good to be true, there is a good chance that it probably is. However, not all of us can afford the things we want in life, and who can resist a good deal, right? That’s what happened over in the UK where student Dre Twenti got cheated out of 1,200 pounds for what he thought was a MacBook Pro.
Huawei recently announced a refresh to its MateBook X Pro laptops. These are designed to be high-end laptops, but in case you don’t have the need for such a laptop and would like to save yourself some money, not to worry because Honor (a sub-brand under Huawei) has since announced their own lineup of affordable laptops.
