Apple's new MacBook is slick and svelte. It only weighs two pounds! But before you get too excited about how well this tiny (gold) laptop might fit into your life, you should know a little bit about its brains. This is not a retina MacBook Air.
As far as Apple announcements go, today's "Spring Forward" event was decidedly lacking in big reveals. The only real curveball was Apple's reveal of a brand new MacBook—one that comes in both gold and space gray, no less. Still, there were some fun little surprises thrown in the mix.
For years Apple's MacBook Air has languished in partial obsolescence—a great laptop with fantastic battery life and a quizzically outdated screen. 1440 x 900 is a pitifully small resolution for modern times. Sadly, the company hasn't learned its lesson: the 2015 MacBook Air refresh has the same, outdated display as it…
It's about damn time Apple reinvented the MacBook. More than the refreshed MacBook Air we've been hearing rumors about since last year, this new laptop is called simply MacBook. It's so little and tiny that we're practically breathless.
Ah, the wonders of photorealistic 3D modeling software. Though it's only been two days since 9to5Mac leaked that Apple is planning the biggest overhaul to its laptops in years—in the form of a new 12-inch MacBook Air—we've already got gauzy, hyper-real renderings of this sucker. If this is what Apple is planning,…
While rumors of a 12-inch MacBook Air have been merrily percolating these last few months, the most interesting aspect of Apple's upcoming redesign turns out not to be the size after all. It's the apparent abandonment of ports.
Everyone's been waiting years and years for a meaningful update to the MacBook line. According to a report from 9to5 Mac, this will be the year that a new design will arrive. The blog just published a few renderings based on details from unnamed Apple employees. And if they're correct, this new MacBook looks awesome.
HP has just announced a new business laptop. But judging on looks alone, you'd be forgiven for thinking that it's just a Macbook Air with a sticker over the Apple logo. Thankfully, there's a few tricks inside to differentiate things.
The MacBook Air is a positively wonderful computer. One of the best! Its design and build-quality are unrivaled and oft-imitated. It pioneered the ultra-super-slim space. But by today's standards its screen is seriously lacking. And there doesn't seem to be much relief in sight.
It looks like we may have to wait a bit longer for those crystal-clear retina MacBook Airs. In a report on Re/code today, John Paczkowski claims that Apple's long-awaited pixel-powered MacBook Air update won't be released at Apple's impending event this Thursday.
Apple has refreshed its MacBook Air lineup today, with the super-slim laptops now sporting Intel's latest Haswell silicon to boost their speeds—and selling for $100 less.
Did you know there's a right and a wrong way to wrap your MacBook charger? Curl it up in a ball, and eventually it'll break. But wrap it like you see in the picture above, and it's going to last a whole lot longer.

Today, Apple presented to the world its new iPad Air and iPad mini, along with details about OS X Mavericks, updated MacBook Pros, and the Mac Pro. But why waste breath talking about all that when we can just enjoy it in series endless loops instead?
Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities has released predictions about Apple's future laptop plans. Most notably he is forecasting that a 12-inch MacBook with a retina display will be announced in mid-2014, and that it will have a redesigned clamshell that is thinner and lighter than the current MacBook Airs.
The MacBook Air's incredibly thin form factor is made possible largely in part by its use of a solid-state drive—or SSD—instead of a more traditional and thicker hard drive with moving parts. The downside is that SSDs are still considerably smaller in capacity than traditional hard drives, but PNY now has an easy way…
