macbook pro 2018

Pros and cons of new macbook pro 2018

Apple has its own unique way of upgrading the technology, macbook pro series is considered one of the best computer technology of this global market. We have seen how macbook pro series have become superior over the few years.

This year, apple finally came up with something new that one may be not expecting this much sooner. Apple macbook pro with “touch bar” is lot more stylish and handy in compare to previous versions of apple macbook.

From last 4 to 5 years we have not seen any new changes in the macbook series. Finally apple decided to give their users something new, which they are going to cherish for long period of time.

If you’re thinking to switch or looking for an upgrade then this article is a must read for all you.

Take a look at few pros and cons of macbook pro before you make a purchase :-


Handy touchbar
Most of you are probably not happy with having no “f” keys at top but the touch will make things more easier for you even without it. Now, you can control brightness, volume, music, apps from the bar very easily. Moreover, you have option to add f keys in touchbar whenever you feel the need of it.

Brighter & colorful display
The new apple macbook pro display is astonishing and looks pleasing to eyes. The colors are amazingly great which will enhance your high definition movies experience tremendously. Moreover, the display brightness is accurately meeting the normal human eye requirement on point.

Faster processor
Time to say goodbye to those long spinning wheels that makes you impatient and frustrated all the time. Now, it is time to say hello to much faster & smoother processor that is going to increase the productivity drastically. with bigger storage option and faster processing speed, you can now use heavy softwares smoothly.

Sleek design
I have always liked the way apple designed their macbook’s right from the beginning. Last 2-3 macbooks have not changed much but this time they designed screen lot much thinner. It is like a paper attached with a typewriter.

Needs to be gentle & careful
As i mentioned above, the new macbook pro screen is thin which means you need to be very much careful when you flap the screen. You can’t just hand over the macbook to someone without letting them know that it’s really sensitive and you must be careful with that everytime when you open it.

No “escape”
Yes, now you don’t have option to press the button escape in seconds and get rid of all those irritating apps and website quickly. However, you can add escape key into touch bar but it is not going to be that much smoother especially in a case of ESC tab.

Expensive device
Macbook pro is so expensive that it can almost give you a heart attack if it gets damaged or harmed. 2000$ macbook can leave you broke if not managed well.

Bottom line
Macbook pro is a great device but needs to be maintained well in order to avoid the damage expense. Apple macbook repair is not much expensive if you hand over the job in the right hands. Apple fix has experts that will make your macbook same as it brought from the showroom. Contact us for one of the best apple macbook repair in hamilton.

macbook air

5 reasons why macbook air is still a great buy

10 years back macbook air was first introduced to the world and brought boom in a market. From that day onwards, apple never looked back and continued its successful streak of mac’s.

Macbook pro series is considered one of the best release of apple till the date. They are much thinner and powerful than the air. After that apple decided to stick with pro’s and end the updation of its most mainstream laptop “air”.

It was 2 years back when the the most latest version of macbook air came. After that, we have seen no sign of macbook air yet. Most of the people might be wondering why apple is still selling this obsolete laptop? But i think air is still worth buying even after 2 years of no updation.

Here look at 5 strong reasons why apple’s macbook air is still a great purchase for you :-

1. Cheapest mac
If you’re a apple fan and don’t have money to buy macbook pro then nothing could be the better choice than the macbook air. It is still the cheapest mac which is available in market in comparison to pro series. The price of smallest macbook starts at 1,299$. The average laptop apart mac series will cost you between 150$ to 650$. This means that macbook air is a affordable buy if somebody looking for a apple branded machine.

2. Longer battery life
No device of apple can provide longer battery life than the macbook air. The 13 inch device can last upto 14 hour with wifi running in background. On the other hand, apple claims that macbook pro battery can survive upto 10 hours and so. Which is 20-40 percent less than the macbook air.

3. Old usb ports
Most of the latest macbooks have c-type connector usb 3.0 port. This ports are actually very useful and will be a great use in future. But most of us still depends on the old one which is usb type-A connector. With this you don’t need to buy dongles, adaptors and all the owner of macbook air can easily connect to usb 3.0 port directly.

4. Card slot
If you’re a photographer or just a person who frequently transfer images from your regular camera then macbook air is quite useful as it has card slot at side. In new macbook pros, you will be needing a usb cable or a card reader to accomplish the same job. Ultimately card slot become a great choice.

5. Better keyboard
If typing comfort is your priority than macbook air have pretty comfortable keyboard than the new updated keyboard of pro. The keys of pro are snappy, updated butterfly version do not perform that good as macbook air do. Macbook air is little deep and responsive.

There are plenty of reasons for not buying macbook air but there are also several points that can pull your attention towards mac strongly. If battery, typing, image transferring is your concern than macbook air is a perfect choice. Moreover, the repairing cost of apple macbook air is less than the macbook pro’s.

All you need to know about Ipad AIR 2

Ipad air 2 till the date remains favourite of every user or lover of apple due to features it provides in so less amount. It runs on ios 11 and in demand by customers although, apple wanted to sell out ipad pro of 2017 as it is the new launch of their brand.
Apple has this tendency and aim from starting to provide users a device which should be better in terms of performance and processor. They do not believe in adding too much in device, as their usp has always been keeping the device simple and fast.
Due to smooth running and faster processor people prefer to go for apple over any other brand. So, every time when apple device come in market the expectation of change should be minimum as the performance will get improved, faster, smoother but major change will not come up soon.
Ipad air 2 has variety of features to offer which almost consist of everything one may be needing to perform daily chores.

Here is everything you need to know about apple’s most favourite device Ipad air 2:

Retina display
Finally, the third eye generation introduced the concept of retina display. The motive behind going towards retina display is that the pixels are so small at the average distance that individual pixels can’t be distinguished. It is more or less new way of seeing display to provide clearer view of screen.

Detecting display touches
The display is capable of detecting and processing different kind of touches on screen. It is capable of detecting difference between multi touch and single touch on display. Also it can sense swiping on screen which means it acts on the basis of your actions.

Dual facing cameras
Ipad air 2 introduced both back and front camera which is specifically designed for facetime video call or conferencing. The back camera is upgraded from 5MP to 8MP which is capable of recording 1080p quality videos.

Bluetooth 4.0
Obviously, bluetooth allow us to deliver and receive data from one device to another. The bluetooth in iphone and ipod give us option to listen music in headphones and speakers. The ipad air 2 has faster bluetooth connectivity which make transfer whole lot smoother and uninterrupted.

Dual microphones
Same like iphone, ipad has two microphones the second microphone in ipad is use to keep the “crowd noise” out. It is very handy when you are using facetime in middle of travel or using ipad as phone.

Battery life
Apple has claimed that ipad battery life is upto 10 hours which is a pretty good amount of time the device last. It still depends upon how you use it and for what purpose you are using the ipad. Watching a video using 4g connection definitely consume more power than reading books or document in the same.

Macbook vs windows

Macbook vs windows : which one to buy?

Macbook and windows is always been a talk of town, mac’s and pc’s has been locked in an battle for past several years. We have seen rare cases where mac users switched to windows or vice versa. The reputation which is built by both the brands is commendable.
The debate is already stretched too much that one still cannot stop talking about these two. Apple always known for its design and smooth performance. On the other side, window pc’s focus towards bringing innovative changes to device.
Iam going to discuss some of the key points that will help you to make a better decision between the two.

Apple trust its design
Apple spends year of hard work and produce one of the best looking mac pc’s in market. They do not look beautiful from outside but they do look attractive from inside as well.

Window pc’s are also catching up and delivered microsoft surface pro 4 which was appreciated by the critics for its innovative design all over the globe. Other manufacturer of window pc ‘s are also leveling up their game in context to design.

Macbook’s are expensive
Apple mac’s are expensive than the window pc’s, they can cost you around 1000$ for its most cheapest device which is macbook air currently. On the other hand, the most cheapest window device cost is 150$ in comparison to macbook. You can get the same or better configuration of mac in windows pc for much less amount of money.

Windows is the best for gamers
One of the prior reason of gamers to choose windows over macbook is that windows pc are customizable. The standard of games are going higher and higher each new day, if you’re kind of a person who love to play games then nothing could be more better than windows pc. You can upgrade the hardware, software, graphic card, whenever you wish to. While, macbook’s are not flexible or vulnerable to customization.

Windows is more vulnerable to threat and viruses
There are very less amount of mac’s in market as compare to windows pc. Apple do not give hackers a wide platform to attack. Windows on the other hand has huge productivity which ultimately make windows a easy target for the hackers.
Still, you can’t just claim that mac is completely secured and windows is not. Last year, we have seen huge number of virus surfacing on mac software. Still, apple has been considered better in protection than windows.

Windows offer more options
Apple don’t have much of variety when it comes to macbook while on the other hand windows having huge number of options. If you’re looking for a touch screen laptop then windows has all kind of ranges as per your budget. Last year, mac came up with its touch bar feature which is perceived as a impressive technology by critics.

End conclusion
Both of these technology used for achieving different objectives, you can’t expect to get all in one. Mac is more of a professional computer that works on point where windows believe in making a whole packed laptop to give their customer at least a bit from every corner. Range might be an issue in macbook because you don’t have much options or a little cheaper version for the same. Windows has range from low to high for everyone who can’t afford a 1000$ purchase.

If you’re thinking to switch from windows to macbook then i like to advise you that it is not expensive to maintain but costly in purchase. Apple macbook repair cost is almost same as windows.

Those who are thinking to switch from macbook to windows, you might feel little difficulty in adjusting with windows interface. Still, it offers wide services than macbook which you may love.


How ipad is different from iphone

People often get confused and ask questions like why apple is still manufacturing ipad when iphone is already doing great in a market. I have seen people who believe ipad is just a bigger version of iphone. In actual, it is not true at all! I agree both devices run on ios software and manufactured by same brand apple but it doesn’t signify that ipad and iphone is the same device of different shape.
Ipad released after 3 years of iphone stability in the global market. The last 10 years has changed the technology completely. Apple is selling much better and advanced iphone’s that ultimately creating more doubts in the mind of audience.

In this article, i’m going to give you the most detailed difference between these two devices which will help you to understand ipad use precisely :-

What ipad can do?
There are tons of function in ipad through which hundred of task can be accomplished. Ipad has some exciting features which none other device could able to provide. Obviously, it is bigger in size which make easier for all of us to watch and stream videos in it. The resolution of ipad is unbelievable that gives the feeling of a small theatre when watching movie in it.
Moreover, when you buy apple ipad you have access to more than 20,000 of apps which are available on app store. Most of you probably not aware about the fact that there are some apps which are specifically designed for ipad and not available for iphone. Still, the apps which are made for iphone is available for ipad also.
Gaming experience get enhanced when you have bigger screen to play on. Kids love to play virtual games on ipad, the games for ipad are of better graphics and quality than iphone. Also, you have higher resolution device to enjoy the graphics to its most.

How it is different from iphone?
Not just in terms of usage, it is quite advance in context to technicality also. The processor of ipad is better and faster in performance. It will give you much smoother experience when you will use the device. Resolution is another aspect in which iphone and ipad varies with huge difference. Other than that, camera quality of ipad is exceptional. you can record videos in 1080p quality even in 4k if you purchase upper version of the ipad.

Why to purchase?
It is great to have a ipad at home as the device is capable of everything that one may require in his daily routine life. It has some great features like multi window to work on two different apps together. There are two versions that are available, one in which internet run on wifi other in which you can get a package sim card through which you can access internet anywhere on device.
There is one more reason to buy ipad, the device is lot more cheaper than iphone and you will get two devices in one (iphone and laptop). Ipad repairing and maintenance cost is also very much affordable this give you one more reason to purchase ipad for yourself.

Currently, apple is one of the top brands of market on which people trust and rely on their product. Iphone is a great technology as both the ipad and iphone is of same brand. You can enjoy the benefits of both the devices if you have budget to buy the both or either can go for one as per your requirement and usage.
