MacBook Anda Overheating? Lubangi Saja dengan Bor

Jika Anda memiliki MacBook, pada titik tertentu kemungkinan MacBook Anda akan mengalami overheating (panas yang berlebihan). Hal ini biasanya terjadi ketika terlalu banyak proses yang berjalan secara bersamaan atau jika Anda menggunakan beberapa aplikasi berat, seperti video game atau software editing video.

iPhone 6

Supporting recent rumors around the upcoming iPhone, Kuo said that the iPhone 6 will come in 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch sizes with 1334×750 (326ppi) and 1920 x 1080 (401 ppi) resolutions, respectively. Both versions will have LTPS display, 1GB RAM, A8 processor, metal casing, TouchID, NFC integration, optical image stabilization, and a 6.5–7.0mm thickness. While shipments for the 4.7-inch model will start in September, the bigger phablet model will ship later.

Apple iWatch

KGI Securities believes the iWatch will start shipping by the end of the third quarter. It will have a fashionable appearance, biometric functionality, and integration with the Mac, iPad and iPhone. Kuo says the wearable device will come in two sizes: 1.3-inch and 1.5-inch flexible AMOLED display. The iWatch will boast a 200 to 250 mAh battery, wireless charging, an NFC chip, slim design and a sapphire cover lens.

Kickstarter: iMacompanion Puts A USB Port On The Front Of An iMac

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve complained about the placement of USB ports on an iMac. A few of the USB ports are used for external storage or other accessories, but sometimes I just want to plug in a flash drive or charge/sync my iPhone. Maybe I’m the only one complaining here, but plugging in a device on the back of an iMac can be a hassle.

The good news is, Wiplabs has developed a solution to this annoying issue. iMacompanion is an elegant extension for one of an iMac’s USB ports. This little accessory plugs into an iMac USB port of your choice, then its cable is routed under the iMac’s base. iMacompanion features a super slim USB extension cable that makes it possible to hide under the base.

From there, iMacompanion attaches to the iMac’s base with a small piece of adhesive tape. With its beautiful aluminum design, iMacompanion blends in with the iMac, while also fixing an annoying problem. The benefit here is that you won’t have to compromise your iMac’s beauty with an ugly or bulky USB hub.

2014 iMac release date rumours | new low-cost iMac coming at WWDC

The iMac was last updated on 24 September 2013 when Apple added the Haswell processor, new graphics, next generation Wi-Fi and faster PCIe flash storage options. It seems likely that Apple will update the iMac at some point this year so in this article, we will explore some of the rumours about Apple’s new generation of iMacs, as well as the rumoured low-cost iMac that the company is said to planning to launch. This article will be regularly updated so you can stay up to date with the latest iMac release date rumours.

Read our review of the 2013 iMacs here.

When is the new iMac coming out?

KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is predicting that Apple will launch a range of new iMacs including a new, low-cost iMac at WWDC on 2 June.

This will be less than a year after Apple last upgraded the range of desktop Macs, however, so an upgrade could come later, perhaps in September or October.

The Mac mini is long overdue an upgrade and it is generally thought that this model may be updated in June to coincide with WWDC.

Will there be a low-cost iMac?

The Mac mini is currently Apple’s lowest priced Mac at just £499, but it is long overdue an update. There has been some speculation that Apple might discontinue the Mac mini. Given this speculation, the rumour that Apple will introduce a low-cost iMac at WWDC in June may cause concern – what place is there for the Mac mini if the iMac is more affordable? Read more about the Mac mini here.

Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is predicting that Apple will launch a low-cost iMac at the worldwide developers conference in June. Kuo believes that the low cost model could help Apple reach into emerging markets such as China.

He also believes that the low-cost iMac will help Apple increase iMac shipments by 23%. He thinks that Apple will sell 4.8 million units.

Apple ‘likely’ to launch low-cost iMac soon, Retina MacBook Air still on track for 2014 debut

pple is reportedly gearing up to launch a new low-cost iMac as soon as this quarter, while a completely redesigned thinner and lighter 12-inch MacBook Air with Retina display is expected to launch before the end of the year.

Ming-Chi Kuo with KGI Securities, who has accurately forecast Apple’s product lineup in the past, said in his latest research note on Wednesday that he believes Apple’s redesigned MacBook Air and low-priced iMac will be “bright spots” in the company’s 2014 lineup.

Kuo was the first to reveal Apple’s plans for a redesigned MacBook Air with Retina display last year. On Wednesday, he reaffirmed that the new notebook expected to sport a fan-less design with fewer inputs and outputs, and a new click-less trackpad.

Though the new MacBook Air will apparently be minimalist, it will continue to offer a physical keyboard in addition to a modified trackpad, Kuo said. And the 12-inch model, sandwiched in between the 11.6- and 13.3-inch sizes Apple current offers in its MacBook Air lineup, is expected to feature a high-resolution Retina display “thanks to advanced panel technology.”

iMac

On the desktop front, Kuo said Apple is “likely” to release a new, low-priced version of the iMac — something his forecast calls for the company to unveil this quarter. That would make the new all-in-one Mac a potential candidate for introduction at Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference, scheduled to kick off June 2.

Kuo said the new, cheaper iMac will allow Apple to better compete with other all-in-one desktop makers HP and Lenovo, giving the Mac maker a better opportunity to compete in growing markets like China. He thinks this new model will help iMac shipments grow 23 percent this year to 4.8 million units.

Intel’s New Haswell Desktop CPUs Could Arrive in May, Allowing for iMac Updates

Intel may release an update to its desktop Haswell processors in May, according to a report in TechPowerUp that cites Hermitage Akihabara as its source. The report claims Intel will launch its new processors, including its flagship Core i7-4790K, on May 10th in most markets. These next generation Haswell chips will include Intel’s Z97 chipset, which provides support for faster and larger M.2 SATA Express drives.

The new Haswell desktop processors will offer a 100 MHz bump in clock speeds and will be a direct successor to most of the chips currently used in the iMac, with the exception of the low-end 21.5-inch iMac, which uses a special i5-4570R chip enhanced with Intel’s Iris 5200 integrated graphics. Intel may have a compatible replacement processor under development, but leaked information has not yet revealed this corresponding model.

These chips may lay the groundwork for an iMac refresh that Apple is planning in 2014. Apple allegedly has a low-priced iMac model in the works, claims KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo in a research note published this week. This less expensive model may be Apple’s first major product launch in 2014 and could boost iMac shipments by up to 30 percent.

Our surveys indicate that Apple’s last iMac model, released at end-2012 with an all-new-design, shipped fewer-than-expected units in the worldwide market. We think the price was set too high and the model failed to make an impact in critical foreign markets like China. We thus think Apple may offer a budget iMac model to push shipments among non-US markets in the face of solid competition from Levono (CN), HP (US) and other rivals.

Though Intel’s desktop processors may be slated for a refresh as early as next month, the timing for the release of the mobile processors used in Apple’s MacBook Air and MacBook Pro are not yet known. The latest information leaked earlier this year by VR-Zone suggests low-end models of Intel’s next-generation Broadwell processor may debut in Q3 2014, with the roadmap for high-end processors compatible with Apple’s MacBook line still up in the air.

Speed bumped versions of the current Haswell chips in the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro may appear at the end of 2014, but that release date still is uncertain at this point and would only provide a small upgrade heading into Broadwell next year.
