After what seemed like years of waiting, Apple finally launched the new MacBook Air. And, while it did bring some new features to the popular laptop lineup, like the awesome fingerprint sensor, we think the MacBook Air 2019, if it comes out, can do more to adapt to the modern laptop landscape.
Now, we don’t know what Apple is planning on releasing this year, beyond the Mac Pro 2019 at least, so we’re not even sure whether a MacBook Air 2019 is going to happen much less when. However, we’re going to make some educated guesses about when the MacBook Air 2019 might hit the street, and create a wish list of what we want to see.
So, be sure to keep this page bookmarked, and we’ll update it as soon as the inevitable MacBook Air 2019 rumors and leaks come rolling in.

2018 came and went with no sign of the new MacBook, instead Apple launched the new MacBook Air – which some would argue replaced it. However, because the latest thin and light has been out for nearly 2 years, we’re ready for the sequel.
But, looking back, the MacBook 2017 was exactly what we’d been asking for since its reincarnation back in 2015 – on paper, at least. The Butterfly keyboard was better than ever while it also experienced a dramatic boost in power, thanks to the 7th-generation Intel Kaby Lake Y-series chips.
We have Intel Amber Lake processors now, though, that feature improved performance over their Kaby Lake counterparts. We expect the MacBook 2019 will use these to take a huge leap over the 2017 model. Hopefully it will be as dramatic as the leap the new MacBook Pro experienced.

There are some long time MacBook users out there that are starting to feel like Apple has lost the spark that showed the company out of its dark ages. There have been a number of new MacBook Pro models in recent years, and other devices, that have been releasing faster than our bank accounts can keep up. And, while some of these upgrades have resulted in improved devices – looking at you, Mac mini – some of these updates have fallen flat.
Apple has approached the MacBook Pro in a different way since 2016, focusing on features that make one of the best Macs more appealing to the mainstream, further streamlining the design – evidenced by the removal of non-Thunderbolt 3 ports. It’s a case of ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,’ but some old school Apple fans have been feeling a bit jaded.
However, the MacBook Pro 2018 did see a substantial intern[……]
The Surface Studio 2 just came out a couple months ago, with a 7th-generation Kaby Lake Intel processor designed for laptops and high-end Nvidia Pascal graphics. It’s a computer designed with digital artists and illustrators in mind, and it has a price tag to match.
However, seeing how the Surface Studio 2 has dated hardware already, we’ve been thinking: what about the Surface Studio 3?
Now, the Surface Studio 2 is still a new device, so there’s obviously no hard information about the Surface Studio 3. However, we can still do a bit of wishing, can’t we?
So, be sure to keep this page bookmarked, and we’ll keep it updated with all the latest news and rumors as they arrive.

- What is it? The next Surface Studio PC
- When is it out? TBD
- What will it cost? At least $3,499 (about £2,720, AU$4,850)

Beyond declaring support of the new Mac Pro through a press release for the iMac Pro sale date nearly two years ago, we don’t know much about it. However, Apple has recognized the public outcry for a Mac Pro 2019 by hinting that it’s working on a ‘modular’ and ‘upgradeable’ Mac Pro – whatever that means.
And, we do know that a Mac Pro is coming in 2019, but we’re only in February, so we could see it launch any time. However, right now we’re putting our money on a mid-2019 launch, even if Apple could surprise us with a special event whenever it feels like it.
If the new Mac Pro 2019 is going to be modular like Apple suggests, what will that look like? What will be upgradeable? Will it look like a juiced up HomePod? Before we dive into all the boundless speculation, let’s lay out some basics.

Apple’s long-rumored video content streaming service could launch as early as April – and without either Netflix or HBO – CNBC reports.
Apple is reportedly looking to launch its video streaming service this April or early May, CNBC learned from “people familiar with the matter.” It will include original content available for free on Apple devices but will also have a number of streaming service ‘Channels.’
These Channels will include options to access subscriptions to other services, which so far include Starz, CBS and Viacom, per CNBC’s sources. However, CNBC reports that HBO is not as far along in partnership discussions as these aforementioned networks for reasons unknown. It’s unclear whether that will impact its availability on Apple’s service.

If you’re a movie buff, an IMAX theater is the best cinema experience money can buy – so how would you like to bring that experience into your living room?
While it doesn’t quite promise to bring hundreds of speakers or a massive 72-foot projection screen into your living room, IMAX Enhanced will be a game-changer by offering expanded aspect ratio and immersive sound to a living room near you.
IMAX Enhanced is both a new licensing and certification program for home entertainment gear that was announced last September, launched in December and made its debut to the world’s tech industry at CES 2019 in Las Vegas.
There were billboards outside the venues, there were demo rooms, there were fast-talking presenters on the booths of Sony, DTS, Denon, and Marantz. However, for most attendees, there was still one big question: exactly what is IMAX Enhanced?

The Sony PlayStation Classic has seen some progressively amazing deals since the holiday season, and now it’s going for its biggest discount yet at just $39.
Just the other week, we saw the PlayStation Classic sell for $54.99 at Amazon, but this new deal from Walmart absolutely tops it by slashing $60 – or 60% off – its original $99 price.
Why is the PlayStation Classic seeing such a fire sale? Well, it might have to do with the PlayStation Classic being the the worst retro revival console ever released. After a hyped-up launch, a few gumshoe users discovered the console was running 50Hz PAL version classic PS1 games.
These questionable emulation choices made the console a poor choice over the almost universally loved Nintendo Classic Mini and SNES Classic Mini. However, this major discount certainly makes PlayStation Classic a much more palatable purchase.
