If these leaked photos are real, the new MacBook Pro could have an upgraded NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M (Kepler) Graphics chip inside of it.
Its been a long time, almost too long. Apple is finally getting rid of the unibody design and redesigning their Macbooks to be thinner, sleeker and more powerful. Or so the rumours say. You want to know what is really going on? We have our industry specialist on the case, our top man on the M.I.C. team, back from Wujiang and he has a lot to tell you. More after the jump.
As the days until Apple’s WWDC announcement dwindle down, here we have an interesting leaked photo that shows the spec sheet of the new 13-inch MacBook Pro. This photo was snapped by someone who’s working at Apple…
The MacBook you are using right now, is machined from a single piece of aluminum, an engineering breakthrough that replaced many parts with just one. It’s called the unibody. And this unibody aluminum casing is made by a Taiwanese company, Catcher Technology, that has factories in mainland China. Recently, the company needs to close down a factory in eastern China due to complaints of a “strange odor” coming from the building. The smell was so bad it was bothering neighbors near the factory. And since Catcher is Apple’s MacBook casing supplier, the Chinese factory shutdown may affect Apple MacBook supplies.
UPDATE: Catcher hoping to reopen the plant in November, planning to spend US$2-3 million to modify equipment and manufacturing processes.
So readers, it seems Apple has made a mistake on their website again! We noticed on their website yesterday morning that they had new Apple Displays. However, all the images shown above have been removed from Apple’s website today.
This handy iHub does double duty as an USB hub and a collector item for every Apple fanboy. We know USB hubs are honestly nothing to get excited, but the iHub is different. It has a light-up
Apple logo, giving you that warm, fuzzy feeling within. Watch the video below to see how geeky it is.
UPDATE: This iHub is no longer available for purchase!
If you are a reader of M.I.C. Gadget, you probably love to see Apple knockoffs. Throughout the year, we have introduced numerous of fake Apple products, and most of them are incredible in many ways. We have a scary waterproof iPhone 4 knockoff, a MacBook Air knockoff with glowing Apple logo, and even an iPad mini wannabe! They are very attractive, and we would like to show you all the best Apple knockoffs in this super round-up post, just read on to catch up with us! Oh, beware one more thing: Steve Jobs wannabe.
We had talked about the Macbook Pro knockoff before, remember? The old glowing Dragonfly logo is finally upgraded to a glowing Apple logo. Based on the photos of the clone, it makes us think it runs Mac OS X, but is that true? Tell you later.
Well, it’s interesting to take a look what lies beneath the MacBook Pro knockoff (a.k.a. QT Pro). Just like the original MacBook Pro, it has a big sealed-in battery, taking up almost fifty percent of the available space in the laptop. Looking at this teardown, we still prefer the original.
Don’t tell me how powerful your MacBook Pro is. I could not afford to get one, but I would consider this Chinese MacBook Pro knockoff, featuring NVIDIA’s Ion 2 graphics technology for 1080p playback. Cool.
