Cloud Life: Week 2 – Pixel Hardware Review
April 22, 2013
While it doesn’t take two weeks to review the hardware of a laptop, I wanted to give the Chromebook Pixel a chance to strut its stuff (plus I just didn’t get around to writing anything sooner). I’ll go right ahead and say that the Pixel is a nice computer; it’s a $1,300 machine and it feels worth the price point (more or less). From the screen to the touchpad to the overall build, it’s a solid machine.
Review: MacBook Pro with Retina
August 7, 2012
When the MacBook Pros with Retina display were first announced, I figured we’d never buy them at work because they were more expensive. As it turns out, if you take a non-Retina MacBook Pro and add 8 GB RAM and a 256 GB SSD which makes the system specs identical to the Retina Pro (sans screen), the Retina is actually cheaper. Something to keep in mind if you are trying to decide between Retina and non-Retina. So we ended up getting a few of these new new Retina Pros and I’ve been using one as my primary machine since the day they arrived. Jon like.
Review: MacBook Air 2012
July 17, 2012
Well it’s 2012 (in case you haven’t been paying attention for the last several months), which means there is a new MacBook Air to review. The new version has been out for about a month now and I just got my hands on a couple to play with. This year’s review of the MacBook Air is going to be much shorter than last years. While I normally don’t summarize my findings in the first paragraph, I’ll break with tradition and say it now… The 2012 MacBook Air is a MINOR revision at best.
