Nilay Patel reviewing the new 13-inch MacBook Air:
13 hours and 29 minutes. That’s all you really need to know — that’s how long the new MacBook Air running Safari lasted running The Verge Battery Test, which cycles through a series of websites and images at 65 percent brightness. Run time in Chrome was shorter, at 11 hours and 29 minutes, but both are still ridiculously impressive. In fact, it’s the record for a laptop running our test without an external battery.
A few of my own thoughts:
2) And this is running OS X Mountain Lion — OS X Mavericks is supposed to come with even more battery optimizations when it ships in the fall. That’s scary to think about.
3) I’ve noticed this about Safari versus Chrome as well on my laptops. No idea why that is.
In OS X Lion a couple years ago, Apple hid the Home user library folder (for admittedly good reason), and there have been various tricks and Terminal commands to show it. In Mavericks, Apple made a pretty good compromise for users who (know what they’re doing and) still need access.
Isn't Microsoft's free upgrade only for people who purchased Window's 8? If you're on Window's 7, I believe you have to pay for it. By contrast, anyone who has Snow Leopard or later can upgrade to Mavericks for free.
Yes. That’s a great point that’s largely been overlooked. Have Windows 7 and want to upgrade to Windows 8.1? That’ll be $119 or $199.
At long last, Mac Pro has had their long-overdue redesign! According to TIME, “the computer will feature 12-core Intel Xeon processors, PCI Express gen 3, dual GPUs to support up to three 4K displays and PCIe flash storage.“
Among the announcements from Apple’s press conference in San Francisco on Tuesday is an official launch date for the next major release of Apple’s desktop operating system, OS X Mavericks. Apple unveiled version 10.9 of OS X this past June at its annual WWDC developer conference and said the software would become available to the public sometime in the fall. As promised, OS X Mavericks will launch today and the upgrade will be free for any and all Mac users, regardless of their current OS version. OS X Mavericks includes a number of new features, such as several redesigned apps, iCloud keychain support, big improvements to the Safari Web browser, Notifications Center enhancements, the addition of Finder tabs and more.
