    2018 MacBook Air Concept

    Here is a concept of the 2018 MacBook Air: It will have the same chassis and footprint as the current 13" MacBook Air, but with a larger Retina display and reduced bezels.

    Painfully slow late 2011 Macbook Pro - upgrade or move on?

    My late 2011 13" Macbook Pro takes 5 minutes to open a browser. It's the lower spec with 4GB / i5. I'm concerned that dropping 50% of the price of a new AIR to upgrade to usable isn't worth it. I'd be looking for this upgrade to give me another 4 years of 'light' use but importantly a computer...

    MacBook Air 11.7

    Alright, I will be honest. I am a fan of R2-D2. I like his small but cute stature. Which leads me to the MacBook Air 11.7. Another cute work piece of technology. Apple's first and last attempt to jump in to the NetBook craze. I currently own the 2011 MacBook Pro 17 inch. The second to...
