    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...

    WWDC 2021 disappointment (then realization)

    As someone who is really looking forward to the 13/14 inch m2/m1x MacBook Pro, the rumors that it might be announced at WWDC were exciting to me, and convincing.

    Thoughts on dedicated GPU being present in refreshed 16" MacBook Pro?

    Hello all. I've been having some thoughts that I've been wanting to voice but I haven't been sure on how to put it and, more importantly, where.

    Silicon Info reports that Microsoft Edge is M1 enabled, and says that it has been since version 88 (currently running 90). But check out my screenshot. It shows Edge as Intel. Have I downloaded the wrong version and have been running Rosette this whole time, or did some...
