Apple is producing more than 200 million electronic devices each year. And making all those iPhones, MacBooks and tablets takes an enormous amount of energy. That's why it's a big deal when Apple says it wants to be the greenest company on Earth.
New security regulations from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and U.K.’s Department for Transport ban passengers flying from certain Middle East and North African airports to the U.S. and U.K. from bringing electronics bigger than a smartphone into the cabins. Laptops, e-readers, tablets, cameras, and more will now have to be checked in at the airport of origin. . . . “Bag theft goes up tremendously during these bans, as does identity theft and intellectual property theft.”
The CRN Test Center compares premium laptops from the Windows and Mac universes. Here's how the HP EliteBook x360 stacks up with the Apple MacBook Pro 2016.
Refurbished 13-Inch MacBook Pro With Touch Bar Now Available, MacBook Pro 2017 Possible To Be Equipped With Intel Cannon
Apple has just included the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar to its refurbished lineup. Meanwhile, the rumoured MacBook Pro 2017 is said to be using the new Intel Cannon chipset instead of the Kaby Lake, which will mean better power consumption.
Apple has added the entire line of the 2016 released MacBook Pro with Touch Bar models to its refurbished store.
We all know that Apple's products are not very cheap, but if you are not worried about refurbished devices, then you could pay up to few hundreds less than if you were to buy a brand new product. The latest refurbished product from Apple is a 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar.
MacBook Pro with 32GB is highly expected this year but it might never happen. Albeit the opinion debate and the fans' demands, it is unlikely for Apple to launch the laptop configuration this year.
If there is a common complaint that customers have regarding Apple’s 2016 MacBook Pros would be its price. These laptops do not come cheap and with the fluctuations in currency, especially in the UK, the new laptops are considerably more expensive than their predecessors, which means that not everyone will be able to afford it.
The Slate wrap from Slickwraps crossed my desk a few days ago, and the thing is that it stuck with me. I find it compelling. Attractive. It’s a study in textured blacks, and I do like black cases and covers for my devices (YMMV). Slickwraps has been knocking it out of the part with their wraps lately, too. In any event, the company is calling this a limited edition, and say that it protects from minor scratches and small drops. They have them for iPhones, several Android devices (if that’s your thing), and even a MacBook. The ones for smartphone are priced at US$24.95.
One alternative for anyone who wants a new MacBook Pro but can't quite fit it into a budget is to pick up an Apple refurbished machine, which now includes the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar.
