If there is one thing Apple (News - Alert) is good at, it’s rolling out products one right after the other. At least it seems that there is a new model right after the release of a model; case in point: the iPad. This time, the computer behemoth is gearing up to release its latest MacBook Pro.
A 13-inch MacBook Pro will be the first to debut, with a 15-inch just after, DigiTimes is reporting.
These next-gen Macs have long been rumored to look similar to the MacBook Air, but there is no confirmation on that. There is also speculation that the next MacBook Pro models will feature a high resolution Retina display. Again, no confirmation, but it’s nice to dream.
The rumor mill has also churned out Apple releasing a 15 inch version of the MacBook Air in April, but as Apple is wont to do, there is no official statement on that.
We’ll just have to wait and see, as Apple is keeping its cards close to their chest on this one.
Apple made headlines down under this week, as the company is doling out refunds to purchasers of the iPad in Australia. It seems customers felt misled over some advertising in regards to the 4G connection that was promised by Apple.
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC) alleges the new tablet labeled “iPad Wi-Fi + 4G” misinforms consumers because it cannot connect to a 4G mobile data network in Australia. The iPad can still access a connection, but 4G? Not so much.
A hearing at the Federal Court in Melbourne granted a win for the ACCC, basically saying that Apple has to email its customers and offer refunds, all the while changing its advertising to let customers know that yes, the iPad can connect to “very fast” mobile networks, just not the 4G stuff as indicated in its marketing.
