    MacBook Pro 14 Inch - Base Model Impressions

    Config: Base MBP 14-inch (512 SSD, 16gb RAM, M1 Pro) Like many of you, I was anxiously awaiting the new 14-inch MBP with Apple silicon. And like many of you, I was a bit grumpy at the price tag of the base model. But I decided to pull the trigger on the base model, ordered it, and picked it up...

    iPad Pro Got an unusual Apple Sticker (scratched)

    Today I bought an ipad pro m1, maybe if discussing the device is not special. But the funny thing is, I got a broken apple sticker, like it was scratched by a sharp object. I've bought Apple devices several times, but this incident taught me a lesson that no matter what brand, mistakes will...

    The universal apps changed into apple silicon overnight

    All these apps in my application list changed into the "kind" of "Apple Silicon" today. They were still "universal" the other day. Can any one tell me what happened to these apps? Why did they change into "Apple Silicon" all of a sudden? Is this a Bug?I am on macOS 11.5.2, and have applied no...

    Is an Apple Silicone MacBook the right option for my friend?

    I have a friend who is looking for a new laptop. They find the MacBook appealing and for what it's worth, the ARM MacBooks are very good for what they are. One issue that's come up is that she likes to play League of Legends as well as streaming her gameplay on Twitch. Would she be able to...

    The Elimination of RAM

    I’m sure I’m a bit misguided in my thinking, since I can’t find a good discussion about it on the inter-webs. Is Apple looking to completely eliminate the need for RAM with its Mx silicon? Specifically, the end goal would be to produce a computer with 0bytes of RAM but every bit as efficient...

    Is there anyway to use non apple keyboard and mouse for new Recovery Assistant with Apple silicon Mac mini M1?

    I want to erase my Mac mini M1 completely and reinstall OS, but I do not have Apple keyboard and mouse. I managed to click the options in the recovery assistant with a wired keyboard. But then it goes to black screen asking me to turn on/pair apple keyboard and mouse. I cannot get past this...

    Protection for new AS Macs

    Hey all, with the new shape and dimensions for the pro laptops, old cases and covers won’t fit. If you plan on protecting your new Mac when it arrives, what case/sleeve you will use? Any idea on how long the manufacturers take to produce them? I can’t imagine they are rushing like with new...

    MBP 14"/16" 32GB Buyers: M1 Pro or M1 Max

    So, the new MBP's are looking pretty amazing, but let's be honest, they're also pretty expensive, particularly if you need more RAM or a faster SOC. Given that it's $400(!) to go from 16GB -> 32GB of ram, bringing the total cost to an eye watering $2399 for the 14" model with the base M1 Pro SOC...

    M1 MacBook Pro Review - One Year Later

    I originally intended on publishing this review to a blog I normally write for, but someone there already bought and published one page review of the M1. So, my 'thorough' review ended up in limbo. I decided to share it with the community. My thoughts are based on initial experiences, but...

    Why an iMac or Mac Mini when you can buy a MacBook Pro and dock it?

    I have got an iMac 27 5k late 2014 which accomplished a lot of work until today. Two months ago I replaced my almost no used MacBook Pro 2016 with a MacBook Pro M1. And now I wanted to replaced my desktop old 5k iMac with someone new, but the display size and resolution is very important to me...

    Just waiting on that 14 inch MBP, how much longer?

    Hello people of MacRumors. I recently graduated from a full stack web dev program. As my processing needs increase (I find my fans spinning up more frequently than ever), and as that endless desire for new tech that many of us feel grows, I am getting darn impatient for that creature of legend...

    If next Macbook Pros use Mini-LEDs, will that pose PWM issues for sensitive groups?

    I've found it difficult to use iPhones — especially the iPhone 12 — that use OLED screens. The PWM rates are quite low and the effect is noticeable. I have no issue at all with the iPhone 11. I've had some eye strain issues with MacBooks, but generally the experience using them is OK. Now, we...

    Is M1 iMac faster than MacBook Pro 15 2017 (base model)?

    I would really like to buy Apple Display (the cheaper one, currently in development according to Mark Gurman) and MacBook Pro 16 M1X. But currently both are not yet released. So I am considering (in the meantime) to buy M1 iMac to replace my 2017 15 inch MacBook Pro. I am going to use it for...

    Hi, I would like your opinion about getting a new Mac. I already have a 2014 15" MacBook Pro (Core i7, 16GB, 512GB SSD). I also have a 2017 13" MacBook Pro with Touch Bar (8GB, Core i5, 512GB SSD). Battery of both Macs are still good and 15" MacBook is still very responsive even with my...
