  • Core i5/i7 (Arrandale) processors to grace MBP’s come early 2010?

    Those with itchy trigger/mouse fingers longing to order a new top-o-the-line Macbook Pro need to get control of themselves and holster their weapons for a brighter horizon is upon us. Would you be so eager to drop 2-3 large on a MBP knowing that Arrandale (read: Core i5/i7) processors are just around the corner from release, bringing a new generation of speed and power in the smallest most energy efficient package yet? Hmm, worded like that, even the king edition of a MBP somehow loses a bit o...

    LEGO's just not your thing? Well then, the LEGO Macbook Logo holder we mentioned yesterday isn't exactly "up your alley" now is it? Not everyone likes LEGO's. It's ok. But those looking to add a little custom visual candy to their Macbook's and Macbook Pro's still have hope. Kickin' it old school on new age tech is always a cool blending of old and new. In the case of the Pac-Man decal above, the Apple logo on the back of the 'book yet again is cleverly aligned with the decal making these ...
  • Matte display option now available on 15″ MacBook Pro

    When Apple made the decision to move to all glossy displays, many peoples' opinions ranged from upset to downright enraged. Some vowed never to buy another Apple product again. Others proclaimed they would hold out or even go as far as to get a third party to install a matte screen. Apple didn't completely give up on glossy displays however as the high end 17" MacBook Pro has had a $50 matte display option since the unibody's were launched late last year. However a quick stop by Apple's we...
  • And you thought your MacBook Pro was sleek…

    Macs are known for their simplisitc design and sleek lines. Apple obviously knows a thing or two about making gadgets not only work, but making them look good while doing it. However, silver/aluminum just isn't everyone's cup 'o tea. Thankfully, we color loving consumers have Colorware to look after us. Introducing Colorware's Stealth Matte Black MacBook Pro, a beast of a machine with an equally sinister paint job. Sure $6,000 is a lot to spend on something that would otherwise set you ba...

    In many computer users' lives, the time will come when your computer isn't acting quite as happy and peppy as it once did. The computer golden years aren't as fond as the human variant not only in the demands required of aging technology, but also in the fact that "old" comes about relatively quickly in the tech world. With Apple's latest addition of an SD card reader on the MacBook Pro line, new possibilities are now available such as actually reading SD cards without having to use some stu...
  • Apple shafts users of new MBP’s - gives them a case of the slowzies with 1.5Gbit Sata interface

    Usually when you purchase a more expensive, newer product, the product tends to be better than the older model it is replacing in every way, top to bottom.  If you were thinking of including that logic and Apple in the same though process, you may want to start from scratch as Apple is chaging things up just a bit.  While the new MBP's are amazing in everyway, faster, cheaper, more feature packed, there is now one big flaw that is quickly turning into a PR nightmare for the almighty Cupert...
  • (Yesterday) Apple kills ExpressCard slot in laptops…ExpressCard 2.0 to breathe new life into format - Mac rendezvous impending?
    by Mike
    Posted June 9th, 2009 at 2:04 pm
    The recent removal of the ExpressCard slot and replacement of said slot with an SD card slot from Macbook Pro laptops was seen as a bitter sweet moment. While the public outcry will undoubtedly be far less than that over the removal of Firewire from the 13" Macbook (now Pro), there are still several different types of applications and instances where missing that ExpressCard slot is going to cost dearly. What's odd is why Apple didn't incorporate one or two other card formats into the Macb...
  • Macbook Pros get stealthy speed bump

    With all of the hub bub surrounding the refreshed Mac minis, iMacs, and Mac Pros, the speed bump to the 15" and 17" Macbook Pros slipped under the radar.  The extra speed comes in the form of an upgrade path to 2.66GHz for the 15" and 2.93GHz for the 17".  Not major speed bumps by any means but improvements are always welcome.  Always!

  • Matte 17″ MacBook Pro looks naked…slightly odd
    by Mike
    Posted February 18th, 2009 at 4:25 pm
    Even though glossy screens on laptops aren't everyone's cup 'o tea, Apple went ahead and decided to make them the standard anyway, giving the option for a matte screen only as a $50 add-on option to the highest end MacBook Pro.  Look at the picture above.  While in reality it's more or less the same as the previous generation MBP's, after seeing the unibody MBP's with the black bezel and full glass across the screen, the matte option while costing more, comes of to me anyway as looking che...

    If you are one of the lucky folks that have been able to order one of Apple's new 17" MacBook Pros you have most certainly been bummed about the shipping delay.  However reports are coming in that the 17 inchers are starting to make their way to their new homes.  Two readers (123free and UFOGoldorak) over at MacRumors have reported getting their 17" MBP's already...slightly ahead of Apple's (delayed) claimed February 19th shipping date...early is never bad people.  What's nice is that UFO...

    Are you one of the many people disappointed with Apple's choice glossy only?  Or, are you in disgust that they are forcing matte screen lovers to shell out for the top end MacBook Pro AND pay an extra $50 just to be able to see the screen in a brightly lit room?  If you answered yes to either of the above, Tech Restore has a solution for you.  They have put together a matte screen replacement package that will rid you of the awful glare the glossy screen throws at your eyes.  The serv...
