Today, HDblog leaked a rendering of the Acer Aspire 3951 Ultrabook. The Aspire 3951 has continued to keep a silent trail and is expected to be announced at this years IFA event. Many people don’t remember much information about the Acer Aspire 3951 Ultrabook, so here is a quick reminder: The Aspire 3951 will feature a 13.3 inch screen and will ring in at 1.4 kg and 13mm thin. We would like to think that the Aspire 3951 Ultrabook will give Apple’s MacBook Air line a run for their –> Read more

It looks as if Acer is bringing some heat with their new Ultrabook and its geared directly to Apple’s Macbook Air. Acer will be releasing its Aspire 3951 with a 13.3 inch screen and will ring in at 1.4 kg and 13mm thin. The laptop is packing a slim design and a full aluminum casing. The laptop will also be equipped with Bluetooth 4.0. Sohoa also states that the “Aspire 3951 also features a performance from sleep mode (lid open) after just 1.7 seconds, timeout 30 days and work continuously for more than 6 hours.” Sorry for the choppy wording but we –> Read more
Apple will have its employees work an overnight shift tonight according to 9to5mac.
The Apple enthusiast blog revealed in an article that “In the employee halls of the retail chain sit large tubes that hold new posters for both front of store posters and posters within the store. Additionally, we’re hearing that each store has been sent a Lion-packing Mac Pro for an unknown purpose. As previously reported, LaCie hard drives loaded with the GM seed of Lion image are ready to be connected as installers on the Macs throughout the showroom floor.”
Obviously new signage is being put up and maybe some small changes will be done to the retail stores. It seems as if OS X Lion is the only possible answer to this overnight shift.
No new word has been brought forth about the new Macbook Airs that were supposed to be releasing with the Thunderbolt connection, faster processors, and of course Mac OS X Lion.
Apple has started asking and scheduling employees to work for an overnight shift on July 13th according to 9to5mac.
We have learned that Apples reasoning for this behavior usually occurs due to the launch of new products, additional training for new products, or the store will be making some huge changes and adding new signage. The last night something of this sort was done, Apple completely renovated their stores with iPads to note product descriptions and have the option to call a representative for more help.
This overnight shift brings question as to what will be done or what will be releasing. The only things that seem to fit in this piece of the puzzle would be the release of a new MacBook Air and/or the companies latest operating system: Mac OS X Lion. We can’t see the new MacBook Air launching with Mac OS X Snow Leopard. So at the opening of the doors on July 14th, we will be seeing either the single launch of Mac OS X Lion, or the release of both, the new MacBook Air and Mac OS X Lion. Either way, who’s on the market for a new MacBook Air and who’s excited for the launch of Mac OS X Lion?
Apple will be unveiling the new MacBook Airs this week. We had mentioned a couple of weeks ago, that Reuters cited a news article from Taiwan’s Economic Daily statement that read “Apple Inc will start selling its latest MacBook Air in late June with 380,000 units as the first shipment.” Looks like Reuters was right and we will finally be seeing there release.
Can we get a little proof please?
Best Buy stopped shipping all versions of the MacBook Air this last weekend. You can still order one of the notebooks, but it is most likely that you will be receiving the refreshed version of the MacBook Air. The company also stated that they will likely not adjust the pricing for the new model.
BGR Reported that “several sellers on the Amazon.com website are showing low inventory or stockouts as well, further supporting the notion that Apple has stopped refreshing distributor inventory as it prepares to begin shipping updated MacBook Air models.”
The refreshed MacBook are expected to feature a Sandy Bridge processor, Thunderbolt I/O port, and should come with improved graphics. Hopefully Apple throws in a couple of new things as well.
Apple has officially released its newest update for the Mac OS X operating system. Update 10.6.8 fixes the bugs and issues included in the picture below. You should definitely download the OS X 10.6.8 update as it will also ensure an easy transition into next months release of OS X Lion.
Over the last month and a half there has been a few reported shortages of Mac Pros and Mac Minis. Usually whenever Apple does this to us, we know what that means. This week CNET’s Brian Tong reported that he believes “Apple is gearing up to launch a revamped Mac Pro and an upgraded Mac mini in either late July or early August – more likely in August.” No one quite knows the exact features and specifications that the new Mac Pros or Mac Mini’s will boast, but are sure to include a Sandy Bridge upgrade and the Thunderbolt connectivity port. This wouldn’t be a bad time to include Mac OSX Lion in the refresh as well.
Brian Tong reported this tip on Twitter:
According to Reuters, Apples Macbook Air line is due for an upgrade later this month. Reuters cited a news article from Taiwan’s Economic Daily statement that read “Apple Inc will start selling its latest Macbook Air in late June with 380,000 units as the first shipment, Taiwan’s Economic Daily said on Tuesday quoting industry sources.” The Macbook will be revamped and feature a Sandy Bridge processor, Thunderbolt I/O port, and should come with improved graphics.
