Bold MacBook Pro 2018 Concept Has Huge Touch Keyboard/Pad Hybrid

Now that Apple has implemented touch bar on its MacBook Pro, it wouldn’t be farfetched to think that in future, the entire keyboard, along with the touch pad, will be replaced by a huge-ass touch-based keyboard. Such a design is exactly what Seattle-based industrial design student Daniel Brunsteiner is driving with his MacBook Pro 2018 Concept. The concept is nothing less than audacious, but the possibility is very real and while regular users may not appreciate the huge touch canvas, creative professionals could benefit from it.

This Is How You Can Test Drive MacBook Pro’s Touch Bar On Your Mac

We picked up this news three weeks ago but we thought it wouldn’t matter cos’ Mac users are unlikely to be skeptical about the new MacBook Pro’s Touch Bar. Fact is, everyone, Mac users or not, has the right to be skeptical. I mean, we are talking about removing the entire row of function keys which naturally will instill some form of ‘fear’. Not knowing is the devil behind this ‘fear’. However, if you sort of know how it works, maybe, just maybe, you will be more prepared for what you will be getting into, or on the opposite spectrum, abandon the idea of owning a Touch Bar-equipped MacBook altogether. Anywho, for folks who are still on the fence about Touch Bar even though there are already some favorable reviews circulating around, we have news for you.

Apple Updates 12-inch MacBook With Faster Chip And Longer Battery Life

With the technology moving so fast, there is never a good time to buy gadgets and so, you might as well grab it if you really need it (unless it is being widely reported that new stuff is coming). Speaking of fast moving, I don’t recall Apple being so eager in updating their laptops, but as it turns out, they are pretty quick in bumping the specs of the still fairly new 12-inch MacBook. Announced yesterday, the updated 12-incher boasts the same all-metal unibody construction, but now it is offered in four finishes: gold, silver, space gray, and not surprisingly, rose gold.

Apple’s All-new 12-inch MacBook is Mere 13.1mm Thin and Comes in a Choice of Three Finishes

Yesterday announcement of the much anticipated Apple Watch have overshadowed another awesome announcement and that was the all-new 12-inch MacBook. Yes. It is just ‘MacBook’ not ‘Air’, but even so, this new 12-incher is 24 percent thinner than the 11-inch MacBook Air. And the 13.1mm thickness, btw, refers to the thickest point. That, my friend, is quite an impressive feat. But how did the Cupertino folks did it? The ultra thinnest is thanks in part to the thinnest 12-inch Retina display to have come out of the Cupertino-based tech company and a super thin keyboard that is said to be 34 percent thinner. Aesthetically, Apple is finally breaking away from the lone brushed metal finish and introduces two new finishes, gold and space gray. Yep. Just like the firm’s small devices. Perhaps, all portable will take on this color scheme? Who knows? Continue reading Apple’s All-new 12-inch MacBook is Mere 13.1mm Thin and Comes in a Choice of Three Finishes
