MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, and Mac Pro Prices Possibly Leak Out

Labels: , , , , , , ,

Could Apple be planning to increase their MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, and Mac Pro entry-level prices whenever they decide to refresh them? If these ads are to be believed then yes - at least in Australia. Apparently, the new prices will start at A$1,899, A$2,399, and A$4,499 for the MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, and Mac Pro, respectively. In case you didn't know, that's a A$300 increase on the MacBook Pro and A$400 increase on the MacBook Air. Of course, these notebooks are expected to have Core i5 / i7 CPU options, but it's still quite a bit extra. The Mac Pro will likely have the Core i7-980X CPU so it's no surprise that the cost is so high. Who knows if the base models for each of these products will increase when it hits North America.

The real question is, when will Apple finally refresh this line-up because a lot of people are waiting.

Update: It looks like these might not actually be the base model prices that we're looking at. These could be the higher-end models. There's something up with the Australian Apple website and the New Zealand Apple website and it's showing the "Starting at.." prices to be the highest-end models. Maybe the price of the entry-level MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, and the Mac Pro will be the same.

Labels: , , , , ,

Gateway is planning to launch their EC14D01h notebook in Canada before anywhere else, call it a debut.

Of course, it's also got a DVD drive, WiFi, three USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI output, a memory card reader, a multitouch trackpad, a 6-cell battery, and Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. It seems like it could very well be worth the price.

Could the Xbox 360 Slim Be In the Works?

Labels: , , ,

Hmm, could Microsoft be planning to launch a Slim model of their Xbox 360? Possibly. Apparently, the picture about could be the board that Microsoft will be using. Of course, it's unconfirmed since it could just be a fan-made mod or something, but you never know. Maybe they're planning to launch a Slim model for their Project Natal this year. The CPU and GPU are said to be on a single chip.

Acer Puts Up Four Calpella-Based Notebooks, Aspire TimelineX Galore!

Labels: , , , , , ,

The rumour was right! Acer's Calpella-based notebooks would come in 11.6, 13, 14, and 15.6-inch models. We already heard about the TimelineX 1830T and now on Acer's website there is also the 13-inch 3820T, 14-inch 4820T, and 15.6-inch 5820T. The prices haven't been mentioned yet but they'll be packing Core i3 / i5 / i7 CPU options. That's pretty impressive considering that they're all said to be under an inch thick.These notebooks will be released on March 22 so it's less than a week away! The 11.6-inch 1830T is up on their website here.

Update: The link to Acer's website is dead (for the 13, 14, and 15.6-inch models) so maybe someone was trigger happy over there.

Update: According to Netbooked, this notebook could get launched in June.

It's March 17th today and T-Mobile USA has just released the Android-based Motorola CLIQ XT for $129.99 on a 2-year contract. For comparison's sake this is $30 more than the rumoured price point but it's still not a bad deal. If you're planning on getting one then check it out on T-Mobile here.

ExoPC Tablet Delayed Until the Summer, Spec Improvements Incoming

Labels: ,

It looks the ExoPC that someone out there is waiting for has been delayed until the Summer. Jean-Baptiste Martinoli, from the company, has mentioned that it's because the production is now taking place in Canada instead of where they originally planned it to be, China. They signed a deal with CiaraTech. He said that this tablet will be hitting the FCC soon and the ExoPC will sport a couple of improvements: "better processor, graphics, better battery life, thinner, better screen and touch panel."

Eurocom Stuffs Intel Core i7-980X Desktop CPU Into Their D900F Workstation Laptop

Labels: , , ,

Eurocom is apparently one of those companies who like to stuff their notebooks with desktop CPUs and their D900F is no exception. This 17-inch notebook comes with 6GB of DDR3 RAM, a 250GB HDD, Nvidia GeForce GTX 280M graphics, but no OS. They also crammed the Intel Core i7-980X Extreme Edition into this notebook which is pretty amazing. This notebook will unfortunately cost you $3,675 USD and you'll need to add another $100 if you want Windows 7 on there.

If those specs don't cut it for you since this is a workstation laptop, you should know that you can put Nvidia Quadro FX 2800M or 3800M graphics inside of here as well as four HDDs and up to 12GB of RAM. The notebook itself will weigh around 8.8 pounds and likely won't have a lengthy battery life.

Windows Phone 7 Series Won't Have Copy and Paste At Launch, Will Get It Later

Labels: , ,

Microsoft really impressed me with Windows Phone 7 Series, but as the days go by I hate it more and more. We already know that WinPho 7 won't have multitasking and won't have expandable memory. Now we're hearing that it won't have copy and paste either. Microsoft's definitely going the old-school Apple route here and it definitely sucks.

Update: According to Boy Genius, Windows Phone 7 will gain copy and paste support in the future which is predictable. Why Microsoft is following in Apple's footsteps is beyond me.
