TL;DR: If you’re looking for a low-cost MacBook that you can use to browse, stream, and run productivity apps like Microsoft Office, then pick up a like-new certified refurbished MacBook Air for only $247.99. Shopping for a laptop on a budget definitely isn’t easy, but you might have some luck if you start looking at refurbished options. Instead of shelling out for a brand-new machine, you could get a like-new laptop that works well for a much lower price. That’s actually how you can get a certified refurbished MacBook Air for only $247.99 (instead of the more typical $700).
Today, Logitech announced their Logitech MX Master 3 for the Mac, and the Logitech MX Keys for Mac both being which are a premium upgrade from their Master series— now completely optimized for MacBook, and Apple advanced users.
Regardless of whether you’re in the coffee shop or if you’re in the office, privacy screens are a help. If you happen to have a MacBook, the best privacy screen that I’ve tried out is the Moshi Umbra Privacy Screen Protector.
Berlin’s annual IFA show is the largest consumer electronics event in Europe with “more digital lifestyle products in one place than any other show worldwide.” After walking the show floor, sitting in on private pre-briefings, standing inside packed press conferences, and attending media-only showcase events, these are the items we’ve chosen for Gear Diary’s Best of IFA 2019 Awards.
The one flaw with having a MacBook Pro is that if you want to get anything done, you will suffer from having to travel with a host of various dongles to get things done. If you have been looking for a single USB Type C hub to fix dongle hell, Satechi’s latest may be your best solution to a problem that only Apple could create.
Apple’s been working hard at giving users who want a quality MacBook better upgrades, tangible new features, and better specs with a more upfront product line; starting today the price furthers that mission by updating the MacBook Air and the MacBook Pro.
If you’re looking for a stylish-yet-effective way of protecting your $1000+ plus investment, look no further than Incase’s Textured Hardshell Case in Woolenex for MacBook Pro is the way to go.
If you have a more recent MacBook that doesn’t include the basic ports necessary to do everyday functions like syncing your devices to iTunes or even just being able to transfer data from memory cards, the CharjenPro MacBar E Adapter has got your back.
Even with using a 15-inch MacBook Pro, screen retail space is limited. At least that was the case until I received the Luna Display by Astropad. Now, I can get everything done as if I had two monitors.
Several years ago, Apple rolled out “two-step verification” to protect your Apple ID. It involved a trusted device, a password, and a recovery key you had to print and save. If you’re like me, you probably filed that key away and forgot it existed.
Ever since I finally received my standing desk by Fully, there was one other item that I knew my setup needed to make it complete: the OWC Thunderbolt 3 Dock. OWC announced that they would be creating their Thunderbolt 3 Dock way back in 2016 when the MacBook Pro was announced, and after a few delays, and a lot of other reviews of standalone imitators, the popular Mac vendor sent over their Thunderbolt 3 Dock. Promising to deliver more connectivity, power and charging capability than the previous Thunderbolt 2 Dock, the Thunderbolt 3 Dock is a “what can I not do”…
A couple of months ago I reviewed CharjenPro’s USB-C 5-in-1 hub for the MacBook Pro. It was an absolutely great accessory for the 2016 Macbook Pro that gives you a lot of the functionality that Apple stripped away when they went all USB-C for their latest Macbook.
Having Apple’s latest MacBook Pro is a gift and a curse. While I love the touch bar, enjoy the aesthetics, one thing I dread is the fact seems to be trying to force USB-C on us before it’s widely accepted everywhere. Not everyone has “USB-C everything”.
If you have a new 2016 MacBook Pro with (or without) Touch Bar and are looking for a protective case to protect that new investment of yours, look no further than Incase’s Dots MacBook Pro Hardshell Case.
One of the things I like about my 2015 Macbook Pro is that unlike newer MacBooks, it has the magnetic charger that used to differentiate Apple laptops from all others. If my cable gets bumped or pulled, it breaks free from my laptop — rather than crashing everything to the floor. SynCharge promises to give Type-C MacBooks back that feature.
Colorware is a popular company known for coating consumer products such as Bose, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and even Apple products. The company sent over their special full-body Matte black Colorware skin for the 2016 15-inch MacBook Pro and it’s made a traditionally Space Grey laptop look even better.
Against Judie’s suggestion of waiting until Apple updated the Macbook with better specs, I still went ahead and ordered the Apple Macbook from October 2016 with Touch Bar and I’m truly in love with it. It has its quirks, but one thing I wasn’t prepared for was all of the dongles I would need.
If you happen to have a new MacBook pro, but finding yourself having a bit of trouble figuring out what products to get for it, from cases, to even dongles, look no further than Moshi.
Apple held their Worldwide Developer Conference today. The public portion of the event was the keynote which clocked in at almost 2 hours and featured a top-down review of the highlights expect in what Apple identified as their four foundational platforms – watchOS, tvOS, OS X (later rebranded as macOS) and iOS.
I recently had the opportunity to use and test a composite case for my 12-inch MacBook from Urban Armor Gear. This manufacturer’s sample states it is military grade and drop-tested. Although I’m not about to start drop-testing my MacBook, I have no reason to believe it’s not military grade. It feels very sturdy and well-built, while remaining lightweight. So as I just mentioned, my initial reaction is that it is really light. I’m sensitive to things that add bulk to the MacBook since it’s size and weight are a key part of what makes it so nice to travel with….
