On October 22, Apple introduced the new iPad Air, added the Retina Display to the iPad Mini, and finally announced availability of the long-anticipated Mac Pro. MacBook Pro with Retina Display models have also received hardware updates.

Buying Guide

Apple recently refreshed their entire MacBook product line – which includes the MacBook, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Air – with new designs and higher horsepower hardware.

The aluminum unibody design, used on the majority of the new Macs, is cut from a brick of solid aluminum. This results in a stronger, more durable notebook, while at the same time reducing the computer's weight. You really have to handle one of these machines to appreciate the leap that Apple has made with manufacturing; they simply feel more solid than any other notebook that I've handled.

An Aluminum MacBook

The compact MacBook, previously only available in a plastic polycarbonate housing, is now available with an aluminum unibody design. The system features a high-gloss 13.3" widescreen display witMacBookh a 1280 x 800 resolution, a DVD burner, and integrated GeForce 9400M graphics by nVIDIA.

Weighing in at only 4.5 pounds, the computer is less than an inch thick when closed. Two USB 2.0 ports are available for device connectivity. It should be noted that the computer lacks FireWire connectivity, a longtime staple on Macs. Users who desire an aluminum notebook and require FireWire will have to move up to the MacBook Pro.

Hands-on Review

Remember when Mac computers only had USB 2.0 ports? Well, now that the 2012 MacBook Air and Pro models include USB 3.0 ports, your choice is no longer limited to just USB 2.0 or Thunderbolt external hard drives, which usually have a huge disparity in terms of storage space and price.

I have blogged, lectured and argued for many years that a camera is nothing more than a tool that solves a given photographer’s problem. A camera brand is not a symbol of loyalty to one kind of photography, nor is it some kind of credential for membership in some kind of “club.” The sooner each photographer starts to figure out what their particular challenges are, and which camera works for them to resolve those challenges (regardless of brand), the sooner they will start making the kind of photographs they want. Recent experience has taught me that I need to start talking the same way about the laptop computers that photographers use for digital image processing.

I hate backing up. I do it, but I hate it. If you’re not running back ups, you’re courting heartache. My cautionary tale: A few years back, my brother and I were editing our first indie feature. Our data got corrupted. Nothing was backed up. We lost 3 months of post-production -- the entire film. Starting from scratch nearly killed us. Don’t let it happen to you.
