Great. New MacBook Air rumors. Again.
Great. New MacBook Air rumors. Again.
When Apple launched the MacBook Air at the end of January 2008, it was an overpriced marvel of design and tech. The laptop, a silvery sliver of machined aluminum, was .76 inches at its thickest and weighed less than three pounds. In an impractical but effective on-stage demonstration, Steve Jobs unveiled the the…
Just in time for its tenth anniversary, Apple might finally be killing the MacBook Air, according to a new report from Digitimes. If this is true, it’d be the first axing of a laptop line from Apple since the iBook and Powerbook were axed back in 2006. It would also be about damn time.
On Monday, Apple’s annual developer conference, WWDC, kicks off, and that means we will soon learn more about the company’s newest and most exciting products. This year, the event runs from June 5-June 9 and is expected to serve as the launching point for major updates to iOS and macOS, as well as some new hardware.
The MacBook Air was Apple’s everyman computer, but as it slowly sunsets that notebook, we’re looking to Apple for a new vision of the do-everything laptop. The MacBook Air was the computer that businesses issued to their employees, the notebook college students bought, and the laptop you saw littered across coffee…
The MacBook Air is likely dead. Despite being Apple’s most popular current computer, used by programmers, bloggers, and coffee shop patrons everywhere, the MacBook Air appears to have been put to pasture. It’s never going to get a super high resolution Retina display or a super thin bezel. Instead according to Tim…
Apple has been moving out of the computer business for awhile. Where once the WWDC keynote would have revolved around OS X (just renamed macOS), now the event is the iOS show.
Apple’s annual developer conference, WWDC, is nearly upon us. The event runs from June 13-17 and traditionally serves as the launching point for major updates to iOS, OS X, and the company’s other platforms. In the last few years, the updates to Apple’s two major OSes has been relatively small and boring for anyone…
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.
