Apple's Thunderbolt Display, A Couple of Reviews

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Other Apple Hardware" @ 12:46 PM

http://www.macworld.com/article/162...l#lsrc.rss_main

"From most angles, Apple's new 27-inch Thunderbolt Display looks just like the 27-inch LED Cinema Display released last year. However, if you take a closer look at what the Thunderbolt Display has to offer, you'll find a display that's ideal for owners of the Thunderbolt-equipped MacBook Air."

This isn't the only review of the new display, as AnandTech also has a pretty in-depth one available here. As I've said before on these pages, this is definitely on my want list and once I get a new MacBook Air with Thunderbolt it will be my next purchase. 4 out of 5 mice with this review from MacWorld, which is brief and to the point, but I kind of like that.

Thunderbolt Displays Shipping

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Other Apple Hardware" @ 08:30 AM

"The Thunderbolt-compatible displays Apple announced back in July have reportedly started shipping out to stores and retailers. MacRumors reported that the displays shipped this week, and should hit shelves very soon. Electronista has heard that shipping to customers will start up on September 15, which is a little later than the original "60 days" we were promised. But late is better than never, right?"

One of these bad boys is on my Christmas list, keeping my fingers crossed. If you have ordered one, you should be getting notification soon about shipping date.

Retina Display Wins Award

"Apple's Retina Display is one of the sexiest around, and now it's getting some official recognition."

The iPhone 4 and the iPad (original and version 2) won Display of the Year. This was given by "The Society for Information Display" and mainly focused on the In-Plane Switching Technology. You can find out more about the awards at the Society's site here, but I think we know why they got it, the displays are fantastic.

The Latest "If You Don't Have an iPhone" Ad

"Apple has released the fifth TV advertisement in its "If you don't have an iPhone" series."

The latest ad touts the fantastic Retina Display on the iPhone 4, and is, of course, called "Retina." You can view this new ad as well as all the other ones at the Apple website.

Maybe it Isn't Just a Toy

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Laptops" @ 10:00 AM

http://gizmodo.com/5714530/macbook-.../full+(Gizmodo)

"This MacBook Air is running four screens simultaneously. Its own, a 20-inch Apple Cinema Display, a 7-inch Mimo 720-S USB display and an Apple IIc running a terminal session through a serial cable. For an underpowered notebook, that's quite a feat."

I guess it isn't all that impressive really, since he is just sharing the display among several monitors, but I do like the workspace set up as a conversation piece. However, he hasn't really reached fanboy status though, since I don't see an iPad or iPhone anywhere in the picture, do you?

Apple Debuts 27-Inch Cinema Display on the Apple Store Site

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Other Apple Hardware" @ 03:48 AM

http://www.tuaw.com/2010/09/17/appl...-now-available/

"About a month and a half after the introduction of the 27-inch Apple Cinema Display, it's finally available on Apple's online store."

And for merely $999.00 USD you too can own one, well, in one to two weeks you can own one since that is the shipping date. Built-in iSight, microphone, 2.1 speaker system, three self-powered USB ports and more come in the package. This takes the place of the 30-inch model.

Introducing the new Mac Pro, Looks Good With the New 27inch Display Doesn't it?

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Desktops" @ 11:51 AM

http://www.apple.com/pr/library/201...7/27macpro.html

"Apple® today unveiled a new Mac® Pro line with up to 12 processing cores and up to 50 percent greater performance than the previous generation.* Featuring the latest quad-core and 6-core Intel Xeon processors, all-new ATI graphics and the option for up to four 512GB solid state drives (SSD), the new Mac Pro continues to deliver amazing performance and expandability for the most demanding consumers and professionals."

Not only did Apple introduce a new trackpad and battery charging system, but they also showed off a new Mac Pro and 27-inch Display. The display will replace the 24-inch as well as the 30-inch displays, but won't be available until September, and will come with a price of $999.00 USD. The Mac Pro will be available in August for $2,499.00 USD to $3,499.00 USD, depending on the options.

Collins America Readying Cinema Display Competitor

Posted by Vincent Ferrari in "Other Apple Hardware" @ 01:00 PM

http://www.cinemaview.com/

"While the elegance and substance of our displays are incomparable, our prices are affordable. What use is the most marvelous product in the world if nobody can afford to own it? CinemaView displays are made to perfectly complement any Apple system, whether a Mac Pro tower, a frequently moved MacBook, Macbook Pro, or MacBook Air or a Mac mini."

Collins America is doing a very smart thing here. There are many of us that are looking for an Apple Cinema Display, but aren't willing to shell out the insane amount of money they're asking for them. The $899 tag on the 24" Cinema Display, in my opinion, is ludicrous despite how great it looks on the shelf. Collins America is going to be releasing a 19" model at $299, a 21" model at $399 and a 24" model at $499. Quite reasonable if the quality matches up to what Apple is offering.

They don't feature the integrated MagSafe of Apple's 24" beauty, but they do have integrated USB and a MiniDP connector so no adapters are going to be needed. In other words, they're designed for Macs from the beginning. I know it's silly to reserve a monitor sight unseen, but I may just do that with these. Anyone else?
