MacBook Pro 13-inch (that's the non-Retina one) reportedly ending life in 2014

A report today suggests that Apple will be retiring the regular, non-Retina 13-inch MacBook Pro in the second half of 2014. The news comes via Digitimes, a somewhat hit-and-miss source that cites insiders in the supply chain, and claims that Apple will be taking the MacBook Pro line Retina only...

12-inch Retina MacBook with no fan, new trackpad makes the rumor rounds

A forum post on Chinese language site Weiphone.com offers up tantalizing details on Apple's next round of MacBooks. The comments are attributed to an author with a credible track record of breaking leaks and photos for MacBook laptops in the past, according to MacRumors.com.

The poster reports that MacBook Air updates are coming soon, with MacBook Pro updates expected later this year. That's consistent with what happened last year: Apple updated the MacBook Air at WWDC, but waited until the fall to introduce updated MacBook Pros.

How to use multiple 4K displays with your MacBook Pro

I ordered a new Mac Pro but not early enough for it to arrive in a timely fashion. The three Dell UltraSharp 32 UltraHD displays I ordered to go along with it, however, arrived almost immediately.

With the "standard" 13-inch MacBook Pro and its Retina display-equipped counterpart only $100 apart, you might think that few people would be interested in the older MacBook Pro.

MagSafe 2: My love hate relationship with Apple's current power connector

Anyone who owns, or has owned a recent MacBook will be familiar with the Magsafe. Apple's take at the laptop charger, and something in my experience that comes with a very distinct love and hate relationship. The latest incarnation, Magsafe 2, one would anticipate being an improvement on the originals, the development of an idea.

But, instead, it's a product that drives many of us to frustration and despair. The reviews section of the Apple Store website is living proof of that. So how can something so good be so bad at the same time?

Apple gift guide: How to pick the perfect iPod, iPhone, iPad, and Mac!

We're entering what is, for many, the biggest shopping and gift-giving season of the year, and by virtue of their quality, cachet, and overall coolness, Apple gifts are always high on everyone's lists. Whether you're looking for that perfect present for that special someone, or just want to take advantage of the once-a-year sales for yourself, it can be a challenge to figure out exactly which Apple devices to get. When does a Retina iPad mini make more sense than a full-sized iPad Air? When does a MacBook Air? iPhone 5s or iPhone 5c? MacBook Pro or iMac? What about an iPod? Figuring out which iPod, iPhone, iPad, or Mac is your best buy this year is the questions we get asked the most often, and with Black Friday and the Holidays upon us, here are our answers!

Waterfield Designs Staad Backpack review

For nigh on a decade I've carried my laptop in backpacks, which work out great - they're comfortable to use over both shoulders and can hold a lot of stuff. Finding one that doesn't look like I'm heading to class or getting ready for a wilderness adventure can be a bit tough, though. Enter the Staad Backpack from Waterfield Designs. It's a more upscale and elegant design that's still eminently practical and capable of holding a lot of stuff.

The 13-inch is still under way but the 15-inch has been spalyed out in all it's splendid glory and to no one's surprise, there's a lot of technology jammed into that beautiful little chassis. Some favorable highlights as noted by iFixIt about the 15-inch MacBook Pro Retina can be found below.
