MacBook Air

Have you already grown accustomed to the notch in the new MacBook Pro?

While the reality is that finding a product is a lot more difficult than it has been in the past, it appears to still be a good indication of how well something is selling if you can't find it at all. Which is why even though the brand new 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro are probably just like every other piece of technology out there (including touchscreen in some vehicles), and hindered in supply by chip shortages, it would appear Apple's new professional laptops (or laptops for professionals) are selling quite well. Which also means that there are a lot of people out there with a brand new laptop that has a notch.

So, you're in the market for a new bag. Or maybe you're looking to buy a new bag for someone else. Either way, you're looking for some new gear and you've decided that a backpack is not the way to go. Which is where a messenger bag might be the better option for your laptop.

MacBook Air redesign will reportedly add ‘off-white bezels’ and keyboard, new iMac-like colors, M2 chip, MagSafe, and more

In October of 2021, Apple welcomed one of the biggest redesigns for the MacBook Pro lineup to date. Specifically, while the company did welcome back plenty of ports (much to the happiness of professionals out there), they also brought in mini-LED displays and a notch for the brand new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro. But the company isn't quite done shaking things up, with the middle of 2022 reportedly tuned up to present radical changes to the MacBook Air lineup.

macOS Monterey will launch on October 25

Apple today confirmed an official release date for the highly anticipated macOS Monterey update. In the press release for its new MacBook Pros, the company noted that macOS Monterey will be available to the public on October 25.

Does the MacBook need a touchscreen?

One of the things Apple executives have been pretty consistent about, even as macOS and iOS blur some lines with each new iteration, is the idea that the company is not trying to merge the two platforms. Meaning, a Mac is going to remain a Mac, and the iPad will continue to be whatever iPadOS defines it as. Of course, that could very well change down the road, but, for now, it appears Apple doesn't have any plans to change that.

Apple hit with class-action lawsuit over M1 MacBook display issues

Apple is not a stranger to any sort of legal action against it. And that, unfortunately, includes class-action lawsuits brought against it by its own customers. That usually happens when it comes to some kind of perceived issues with Apple's business practices and/or hardware issues with its devices. Which is the case this time around as well.

What would you change about the iMac?

It feels like forever ago now, but I once had a desktop. Something I'd use every single day by saddling up to a desk and typing away on a wired, less-than-great keyboard. A mouse and not a trackpad. Part of those years was as a kid, either with an early day Mac or early day PC, and most of that time was spent playing old computer games.
