    Hey everyone! It is known that Netflix 4k support is on Kaby Lake processors only. In addition to running on Windows 10 Edge browser only as well. All in all, it is all due to Kaby Lake having HDCP 2.2 DRM hardware...

    Touchbar MBP 13" i5,i7, or base 15"?

    Hello all!, Im looking to purchase a MBP for final cut and photoshop. Im struggling to figure out wether it is worth the extra $200 to go for the i7 vs the upgraded i5. Is .2 GHz going to make such a big difference in rendering time? Im planning on running the 256 ssd and 16gb of ram. I know the...

    Do you think the New MacBook Pro will have up to 32GB RAM?

    It almost makes so much sense to have the option of up to 32GB RAM that it wouldn't make sense to only offer up to 16GB The Dell XPS 15 is the direct competition and it offers 32GB, and user expandable at that! 16GB would be ok with me but would it ever be great to have 32GB or at least the...

    Would you rather see a thinner new MBP or same size?

    Personally, I'm getting upset with Apple desperately trying to make their devices thinner and lacking improvement on function. I'd rather see the new MBP have the same thickness as the 2012 model is that meant a better battery, quieter fan, and overall cooler temperature. Do you think the...

    Is there customer demand for a new MacBook Pro?

    I'm just curious if we're crazy outsiders to want a new MBP? I've seen A LOT of people on here wanting a MBP but Apple hasn't been too helpful on this front. Based on the products released by Apple, I think THEY think that consumers only want small thin laptops for surfing the internet and...

    Should I buy an iMac 5k or a MacBook Pro?

    Hi, Since my old laptop broke I need a new machine to do my daily tasks on. I've been wondering which device I should get, either the iMac 5k or MacBook Pro 15 inch. I don't have the money to max them both out so the price needs to be around 2000 euros. I mainly do light tasks like watching...
