Andy Merrett Computers, Laptops / Notebooks Leave a Comment


Apple has taken the wraps off two new notebooks: the 13-inch MacBook and 15-inch MacBook Pro.

The 13-inch MacBook features a precision aluminium unibody enclosure — in other words, it’s constructed from a single solid piece of metal and is much thinner than its predecessor. Not as thin as the MacBook Air, of course, but not bad at 2.41cms.

The ultra-thin 13.3-inch LED backlit display is bright, yet the whole unit is thinner than its outdated LCD relative. It can display up to 1,280 x 800 resolution…

ROUNDUP: New Apple Macbook rumours

Duncan Geere Computers, Laptops / Notebooks 1 Comment


On Wednesday Tech Digest has been cordially invited to an Apple event called “The spotlight turns to notebooks”. There have been plenty of rumours swirling around regarding a cheap, netbook-y, Macbook arriving, but over the weekend a few more details surfaced about what we’re likely to see.

Firstly, it’s now pretty much given that Apple are going to dump Intel’s integrated graphics chipsets in favour of NVidia’s MCP79 platform. Don’t worry – I’m not expecting you to know what that is off the top of your head. Basically, the NVidia chipset is smaller, faster and more versatile than Intel’s integrated graphics chips…

Blurry shots are popping up across the internet of a new Macbook model, which has been anticipated for a little while now. We don’t normally report on blurry Apple photos, because they’re often just the creations of fanboys with too much time on their hands. This one’s notable though – because there’s chatter that it might arrive at a substationally lower price point than current Apple Macbooks….

We may only just have had the Apple music press conference and launch of the new iPod family but where would the internet community be if it was not exposing the next products that Apple has in store before Steve Jobs intends to?

Most beautiful MacBook concept to date – check out the blue LEDs! Phwroar!

Katherine Hannaford Computers, Laptops / Notebooks Leave a Comment


Steve Jobs sure did disappoint at the WWDC event last week, didn’t he? Not only did he announce an underwhelming iPhone, he also failed to announce new MacBooks which we were all expecting.

Perhaps if we drop enough hints he’ll realise what we really want from a MacBook is a slim exterior, with…blue LEDs! Hey, if it worked for Tron, it can work for Apple, with the above concept being at the pinnacle of hope for a new range….

Katherine Hannaford Computers, Laptops / Notebooks Leave a Comment


Thankfully another rumour from inside Cupertino has reared its smooth white head, with a Commercial Times article claiming that we’ll be seeing an upgrade to the MacBook range in the third quarter of 2008.

For anyone holding out for a new MacBook, that’s at least six weeks away, and even then, it’s still just rumour. The rumours this time around seem to be based on two Taiwanese flat-panel makers receiving orders for up to 3 million units for new MacBooks.

Most believe the revision will…
