Buyers Guide

Should you get an iPad Pro or a MacBook?

For the first time Apple has an iPad that's close to a Mac and a Mac that's close to an iPad: The iPad Pro and new MacBook. The iPad Pro runs iOS 9 on an Apple A9X processor. The MacBook runs OS X El Capitan on an Intel M. Both can are ideal for planes and coffee shops, classrooms and conferences, home and office. But which one is better for you?

What iPad Air or iPad mini storage size should you get: 16 GB vs. 64 GB vs. 128 GB?

The iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 4 come with 16 GB, 64 GB, or 128 GB of storage. Picking between them can be tough, especially since cost increases along with size, and as apps and content get bigger, operating systems are getting more efficient. The last thing you want to do is pay for storage you don't need... except for running out of storage when you need it most. So, how much iPad storage is enough?

Apple TV buyers guide

There's a new Apple TV in town. It doesn't do 4K but it does do Siri and apps, and that makes it a significant improvement over the old—but still for sale!—Apple TV.

If you're one of them, we can help you figure out the answers!

Should you upgrade to the new Apple TV?

The last time the Apple TV was updated it was 2012 and it shared the stage with the iPad 3. The new Apple TV was just announced in 2015 and it shared the stage with the iPad Pro. That should give you an indication of just how long, and how big, the leap between generations really is. But if you have a 2012 Apple TV, and it still works and does what you need it to do, should you consider upgrading?

Should you buy an Apple Watch now or wait for the next generation?

Once you decide you want an Apple Watch you need to decide if you want it now.

Buying a first generation product, be it the Apple Watch today, an original iPhone or iPad back when they launched, or a newly redesigned Mac any time, is something that used to be considered the domain of tech aficionados and early adopters. For most people, conventional wisdom was to hold off, to avoid brand new products and let the early adopters serve as the early testers. Yet as technology becomes more mainstream, products are becoming more mature, even in their original iterations. So, if you're interested in an Apple Watch, is it okay to jump into the first generation, or should you wait for the next?

Mac Buyers Guide

At first glance Apple seems to have a simple product grid when it comes to their personal computer line-up, the Mac. You can get a laptop or desktop.

But you can also choose between a couple of different screen sizes each, along with optional increases for RAM, CPU, storage, and more. If you want a desktop, you can choose between the entry-level Mac Mini, the all-in-one iMac, or the workstation-like Mac Pro. But again, the their are options for just about everything. Which one should you get, and which options with it?

Form-fitting and skin-friendly with a pin-and-tuck-closure, the Apple Watch Sport band is what ships with every case in the Apple Watch Sport collection. There are several bright, fun colors to choose from, however, and that can make the choice more difficult. If you're having trouble deciding, here's some help!
