Thursday, March 8th, 2012

Yesterday Apple revealed the 3rd generation of the iPad, which will be available in stores on March 16 (can also be pre-ordered now for delivery on March 16).

Among the stunning new features are:

  • New Retina display that delivers 4x the number of pixels of the iPad 2 (and 1 million more pixels than an HD TV)
  • 5 megapixel iSight camera with 1080p HD video (new image stabilization feature as well)
  • New A5X chip with quad-core graphics

The new iPad Wi-Fi models will be available in black or white, priced at $499 for the 16GB model, $599 for the 32GB model and $699 for the 64GB model.

iPad Wi-Fi + 4G for either AT&T or Verizon will be available for $629 for the 16GB model, $729 for the 32GB model and $829 for the 64GB model.

Also! The 16GB iPad 2 is now being offered at a very affordable $399.

MacBook Air or iPad 2?

Wednesday, April 13th, 2011

A lot of users out there are still wondering which is better — MacBook Air or iPad 2?  I tweeted about this a while ago, but thought I’d revisit the question as it has been coming up a lot lately.

Brooke Crothers wrote a spot-on review of the two machines for CNET a few weeks back. His verdict (much the same as ours) is that the MacBook Air is probably a better value for users who need to have great browsing and media capability AS WELL AS the ability to use the software that is part of their every day workflow. And it’s much faster, too!
