iMac (Mid 2007)

Apple gave the iMac a fresher look in August 2007, the first change from the stark white face introduced with the first G5 iMac three years ago. The new look puts a black border around a glossy display, has an aluminum finish, and is thinner than its predecessors.

Mac mini (Mid 2007)

Apple “refreshed” the Mac mini the same day it unveiled new iMacs, iLife ’08, and iWork ’08. The updated model finally moves the Mini from the outdated Core Duo to a Core 2 Duo processor – along with faster CPU speeds. Between the newer, more efficient CPU and 8-10% higher clock speeds, we expect 15-25% […]

MacBook Pro (Mid 2007)

The Mid 2007 MacBook Pro came in two sizes. Both use Intel’s Santa Rosa chipset and an 800 MHz system bus (up from 667 MHz). The 15″ was Apple’s first notebook with LED backlighting, and this was the first time Apple offered a 1920 x 1200 screen for the 17″ model.

MacBook (Mid 2007)

Apple introduced the Mac Pro as a fully customizable quad-core computer in 2006 and updated it to eight cores in April 2007. The buyer could choose as little as 1 GB of RAM or as much as 16 GB. 160, 250, or 500 GB in drive bay one, and optionally 500 GB in bays 2-4.

Has it already been six months since the original MacBook was introduced? Then it must be time for an upgrade.

Overall, that should […]

iMac (Late 2006)

Industry watchers had been anticipating Apple moving the iMac to Intel’s Core 2 Duo processor, which is “up to 50% more powerful” (according to Apple) than the Core Duo used in the Early 2006 iMac.

Mac mini (Late 2006)

Kudos to Apple for abandoning the Intel Core Solo used in the original entry-level Intel Mac mini. With the September 2006 revision, both models have Core Duo processors. Oddly, these are the only second-generation Intel Macs not to use Core 2 Duo CPUs, something we’ve never understood.

17″ iMac (Mid 2006)

Apple surprised a lot of people by introducing a scaled back version of the 17″ iMac Core Duo in July 2006. To shave US$400 from the 17″ Early 2006 iMac’s retail price, Apple replaced the SuperDrive with a 24x Combo drive, used an 80 GB hard drive instead of 160, and relied on Intel GMA 950 graphics […]

MacBook (Mid 2006)

We’ve been waiting quite a while to see what Apple would replace the iBook with, and the rumored 13.3″ widescreen MacBook is now a reality. The biggest surprise is that Apple is replacing both the iBook line and the 12″ PowerBook with the 13″ MacBook, greatly simplifying their line of notebook computers. Built around Intel’s Core Duo […]
