Retina Macbook Pro Can Power 4 Display

Retina Macbook Pro is really a powerhouse laptop. Tons of very good review on the performance and incredible display, this 2012 Retina Macbook Pro can really do replace your home Mac Pro or iMac. Very very good performance for such a thin and light laptop.

4 Display 15 millions of Pixel.

One issue to replace your Mac Pro or iMac is screen real estate, Retina Macbook Pro have a great looking 15 inch Screen, but to many power users it is not enough. Worry no more, this Macbook Pro can power up to 3 other display excluding its own screen. Pretty impossible for a small size laptop like it.

The MacBook Pro pictured is connected to two iMacs running at 2560×1440 over Thunderbolt, with an additional LG monitor connected over HDMI running at 1920×1200. Not only can the MacBook Pro now push nearly 15 million pixels

OWC reports that the MacBook Pro was able to play video simultaneously on all four displays without any lag. Very very cool.

Turn your iPad into a Macbook Pro

iPad Macbook Pro

If you are a hardcore iPad user who can’t live without iPad, but still prefer physical keyboard to be more efficient and love the form factor of Macbook Pro, you are in luck. Japanese retailer Rakuten have came out with an iPad case + keyboard which like a smaller size Macbook Pro.

All in one Case for iPad

The case contains a built-in Lithium-polymer battery which can charge your iPad, a USB port, mini USB port and a bluetooth keyboard which can be connected to your iPad. Price of it is around USD$75 and is currently only available in Japan. But honestly a case that have battery, bluetooth keyboard, USB and mini USB port, it is a great deal. Plus it looks very nice.

It is built for iPad 2, but it should work fine with the new iPad as phyiscally the difference is small. If you wish to get it, you can check out rakuten.

Apple is now buying back old Macs, iPhone and iPad

Green Apple

Apple is one of the greenest tech companies in the world, they are always pushing their product to be as green as possible. Not just making green products, Apple tries to minmum the CO by reduce weight of shipping weight and reducing carbon footprint. They tries to encourage recycling by recycling all Apple products for free.

Reuse and Recycle

But today Apple pushed recycling to the new limit and launches Reuse and Recycle program. Yes, Apple will buy back workable old Apple or non-Apple product back. They will provide free shipping and free packaging for your old Notebook, Desktop, iPad and iPhone! This is a pretty nice service, although you might be able to get better resale price on ebay or other auction sites, but it can not be easier to sell your products back to Apple.

One important note is that all value of your product will be translated to an Apple Gift Card of the same value. Since it is Apple Gift Card, you will be only able to use in Apple Store or buy Apps/music in Apple’s App Store or iTunes.

So if you have any old Apple products or PC, check out Apple’s Reuse and Recycle Program.


Thunderbolt on Macbook Air is slower than rest of Mac family

The new Macbook Air 2011 have very good overall comments from reviewers and users themselves. Such a thin and light device, but can be as powerful or even more powerful than most 2009 Macbook Pro. Equipped with SSD, lots of every task like launching app, importing photos and browsing the web are super snappy.

Smaller Thunderbolt Chip for Macbook Air 2011

One of the newer addition to the new Macbook Air 2011 is the new thunderbolt port which is not available in the older generation MBA. But don’t let it fool you, this thunderbolt is not the same as the one we see in Macbook Pro 2011, iMac or the new Mac Mini. The Thunderbolt port that is in this new Macbook Air is smaller, featuring only 2 Thunderbolt channels and supports only 1 external display rather than 4 Channels and 2 external display that we see in the rest of the family.

Of course, I doubt this will be a minus point for most user, as 1 external display should be more than enough. Plus the graphics card on Macbook Air will not be able to power up 2 external display, thus there isn’t any reason for Apple to put up a bigger and more power Light Ridge Thunderbolt Chip.

How are you enjoying your Macbook Air? Let us know!

Sorry if you are already sick of me reporting on G-Form case, but they are really too amazing to ignore. Previously we have posted on dropping a bowling ball onto the iPad sleeve, and throwing your precious 13″ Macbook Pro from second level of your house. So, how about running over your iPad with a car?

Mobile Syrup have recently done a review on the iPad G-Form Sleeve, and what they did was getting a car to go over the case with an iPad inside! Surprising it survived! Everything seems to function as per normal, and we can’t see any scratches on the iPad 2!

Check out the video review:

Mac OS Lion handles External Monitor better [video]

Mac OS Lion handle External Monitor on Macbook Pro better!

I’m not sure about how you guys think about how Mac OS Snow Leopard handles external monitor, but I feel they can really improve it. Mac OS Lion handles external monitor way cooler.

On Mac OS Lion, external monitor won’t go to sleep, if you close your Macbook’s lid, it will automatically switch the primary monitor to your external monitor, which is much cooler.

US President Obama is our fellow Apple Fan Boy? [Video]

Obama Love Apple’s Products

Is US President Barack Obama our fellow Apple Fan Boy? No, we aren’t just making it up, he loves Apple, or at least he love using Apple’s Product. We all know that US President Obama is one of the most tech-savvy president ever for United States. He used Twitter and Facebook during his champaign.

He is recently caught carrying his iPad 2 as he walks to Marine One. His iPad 2 is covered by a gray SmartCover, I’m just wondering what apps he uses. It is just plain cool to see one of the most powerful man on earth enjoying the same product as us. Below are the 2 video of him, one showing US citizen healthcare website using his Macbook Pro and one interview with Jorge Ramos asking President Obama whether he own an iPad.


Is iPhone 5 getting Aluminum backing?

Is Apple iPhone 5 going to get an Aluminum Backing?

Aluminum Backing for iPhone 5?

This mock up looks like iPhone 3GS with Aluminum backing? So will iPhone’s design go back to iPhone 3GS-like? To be honest, I don’t think so, at least not for iPhone 5. I don’t think Apple will change their design so soon, but who knows? iPad 2 have a changed in design although iPad is only out for 1 year.

Why Apple might not go back to Glass backing like iPhone 4?

  1. Remember our legendary White iPhone 4? Due to the white backing, iPhone 4 have light leaks and flash issue
  2. Glassgate – some iPhone 4 users dropped their phone and cracked the backing as the back of iPhone 4 is not as strong as the screen. Results shows that iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G are more durable than iPhone 4
  3. Unified Looks for all Apple Product – Apple Macbook Pro, iPads and iPod Touch all have aluminum backing or full-body, thus it will be a more unified look for iPhone to have it too?

No one knows for sure what we will be getting for iPhone 5, so let’s wait and see!
