An Apple support page for Boot Camp mentions a 2014 Mac Mini model. If Apple does release a Mac Mini refresh, it would be the system’s first update in two years.
Apple releasing a smaller iPad would come just in time for a holiday sales showdown with the likes of Amazon, Google and Microsoft. There’s a lot we still don’t know about what Apple will be announcing Tuesday, but one of the biggest questions centers on price.
Every time new Macs come along, people inevitably get the itch to upgrade. There are no new ones on the immediate horizon, but that new computer experience might be available for a lot less money, if your Mac is eligible for a simple, DIY memory upgrade.
People paid a lot of attention to two new features that arrived in the iPhone 4S: The much-improved camera and Siri, the new voice-powered digital assistant. But the 4S also snuck in another feature upgrade, one that’s a ticking time bomb of potential goodness: Bluetooth 4.0.
Macs retain higher resale values than other PCs, but they don’t last forever. But how do you know when to act? What are the symptoms of impeding Mac death or obsolescence, and when is a good time to consider getting a new one?
New sales data from the NPD Group, as shared by Piper Jaffray, shows that Apple’s Mac sales are surging thanks to new models introduced in July. The other side of the coin is that iPod sales are in decline, but that’s nothing Apple isn’t expecting.
The new Mac mini does away with the optical disc drive, leading to a price reduction for Apple’s diminutive desktop. Without it, and with the addition of Thunderbolt and dedicated graphics, how does the mini stack up as a desktop and as a home theater PC?
There are times when your Mac will just start misbehaving. Video settings getting reset, fans start running at full speed, and more. This often happens after an upgrade like Lion. There are many possible fixes, but if everything fails, try resetting your PRAM or SMC.
Apple today released its much awaited Mac OSX Lion operating system and upgrades to Mac Mini, Macbook Air and a new Thunderbolt I/O-based display. This is a much awaited announcement and is surely going to fuel Apple’s already red-hot business.
Thunderbolt has arrived, but it’s been on the market now since February, and we’ve yet to see it really do much in the way of changing how we use our Macs. Signs indicate that this summer could be the time we do see that happen.
