    So my cycle count is nearing 2/3s of the 1k count mark and has been experiencing battery issues, when this mac was new I would typically get around 9 hours out of a charge and now it's less than half of that. My Mac is claiming the battery condition is normal. Is such a lull in battery life...

    MacBook Air (mid-2012) to 12" MacBook (2017) = upgrade?

    I have a mid-2012 1.8ghz i5 MacBook Air with 128gb storage. I use it lightly for web browsing and emails. The £800 m3 MacBook deal in the UK has me tempted for the screen upgrade alone (plus battery and 256gb storage). However, will I see any overall speed/performance upgrade? Has anyone else...

    2017 MacBook vs. 2018 MacBook Pro 13"

    I just thought I'd share with you my experience with the new 2018 MacBook Pro 13" compared to my 2017 MacBook. I did not like my 2017 MacBook. The keyboard *sucked*. It's every bit as bad as they say, and then some. It was really underpowered. I got it because it was lightweight and...

    Macbook 2017 i5 vs i7 Battery Life On Normal Tasks

    I have ordered i7 16gb 512 Macbook, i7 specifically in hopes that it will be snappier than the i5 as time goes by. However I have a lingering feeling that the battery life on the i7 model will be worse than the i5. What are your opinions and experiences on the same class of CPU i5/i7 and its...

    MacBook, Dongle-dom & "Single port life"

    How is life with only 1 port? What are the restrictions with non-Thunderbolt 3 compatibility? I am presuming today there aren't many devices though this may change. Is the 5Gbps upper limit an issue, or is this just for "pro" use, i.e. multi-5k screens, plus TB3-native SSDs or eGPUs? Is there...

    Buying a new 12" MacBook today.. some questions

    I was really hoping Apple was going to update the 12" MacBook alongside the 13" MacBook Air. It's been 17 months since it was last updated.. 17 months with the same pricing.. it seems so wrong to buy it new today but it's the only option I'm left with besides finding one 2nd hand. Having silent...

    I want a 12"MB, not the new MBA

    I know about all things new MBA does better than current 12"MB but.... Let's be fair: New MBA cannot compete with - 2 pounds of weight - fanless - 0.14 to 0.5 inch thin I see the new MBA and I still prefer the 12"MB. I have a wide budget so my purchase would be top high-end with i7 cpu, 16gb...

    Smaller MacBook?

    I love the idea of an 11" MacBook or perhaps an unprecedented sub-11" device, compact notebook nirvana. Is anyone else interested in such a product? Another thought I have is replacing the headphone jack with a second usb-c port.
