Unboxing: Origin PC Millennium

04/08, 8:14pm

Crate expectations

While many choose to go the route of building their own gaming PCs, there are a number of companies that thrive on a market looking for pre-built options. Over the past few years, Origin PC has built a reputation for offering powerful systems and top-notch customer support.


New 12-inch MacBook unboxed, benchmarked

04/02, 1:03pm

Performance comparable to 2011 MacBook Air, but longer battery life

Despite the unit not being available for another couple of weeks yet, an enthusiast in Vietnam has gotten his hands on a retail version of Apple's forthcoming 12-inch MacBook and posted an "unboxing" video. Separately, new benchmarks (now removed) for the machine show that while the new model can boast performance on par with an Intel Core i7, it would be an older i7 as found in a 2011 11-inch MacBook Air.


Back to the Mac: unboxing and setting up the Mac mini

02/21, 6:36pm

The proper rituals must be performed, obviously

Two weeks ago, staff writer and long-time Windows user Malcolm Owen returned to Mac following a five-year absence. Back to the Mac is a series of posts where he charts his progress in introducing Apple to his working environment once again. In this second installment, Malcolm goes through the unboxing ritual, and sets up the machine for daily use.

The happiest moment of any geeky person's life is when they get to unbox some new toys, and if I said I wasn't excited about getting my new Mac mini out of the box, I'd be lying.


Briefly: iPhone 5s and 5c unboxings, Apple updates Configurator

09/20, 2:00am

Apple Configurator 1.4 supports iOS 7, configures new features

Alongside the release of iOS 7, Apple on Thursday updated its mass-configuration utility Apple Configurator to version 1.4 (free). The update adds support for iOS 7, and also gives administrators the ability to turn (or off) some of the new features such as AirDrop or allowing Notifications Center or Control Center on the lock screen -- the latter of which has turned out to be a small security risk. In addition, version 1.4 allows the configuration and control of AirPrint Printers and AirPlay mirroring destinations and passwords among other improvements.


iPhone 4S unboxing photos and some first impressions

10/14, 8:15am

iPhone 4S is here and it shines

The iPhone 4S has landed in stores and Electronista has its hands on a white 64GB model. As most readers will be aware of by now, the phone looks almost identical to the iPhone 4. However, the internals have largely been given a once over with major upgrades in processing power and graphics performance. Our first impressions are that the changes really shine and are good enough that even iPhone 4 owners may want to seriously consider an upgrade.

Apple hits the bullseye yet again

The new 11.6-inch Macbook Air is a notebook that many Apple users have long been waiting for. While it might not have the most impressive overall specs, it delivers snappy performance for use with everyday apps. Mail, Safari, iChat, and iTunes all work smoothly and load quickly, making it a very useable device for users who need mobility and functionality on the go.

iPad arrives at customers' doorsteps

Despite sketchy UPS tracking information suggesting many iPads were stuck in China on Friday, the shipping company appears to have followed through with its promise of a Saturday delivery in most areas. MacNN obtained one of the highly anticipated devices, which arrived in Apple's minimalist packaging.


Unboxing, comparative photos of new iPod shuffle

03/12, 10:25pm

Photos of new iPod shuffle

We have dozens of hi-res unboxing photos of Apple's new iPod shuffle, showing the form-factor change. Similarly to latest-generation iPod nano, Apple has chosen to move away from the shorter case and switch to a taller, more rectangular housing. The company apparently placed the small size at a high priority, integrating a dime-size 73 mAh battery that cuts two hours of playback time from the previous generation. Surface buttons have been removed and replaced with in-line controls on the headphone cord. The system still allows standard headphones to be used, but without any pause or volume controls.
