Which Mac notebook is right for me?

Are you thinking about buying a new Mac notebook, and filling a little lost in the process. The truth is, if you want a new Mac computer, it’s not always easy to choose the right model that fits your needs. Fortunately for you, we’ve been dealing with Macs for a number of years, and can provide you with an overview of what you can expect.

MacBook Air or MacBook Pro 

Apple make two laptop computers, the MacBook Air or MacBook Pro. Both do well but are aimed at different audiences.

13-inch MacBook Air

The Apple MacBook Air is ideal for the budget conscious. Mostly designed and priced for the entry level user, this notebook is a great computing platform for people on the go. Its light wait, slim design with 18hrs battery life, it’s a great companion on any airplane or train ride. The MacBook Air is definitely more versatile than an iPad but not has cumbersome as a regular size laptop. They come in three different finish, Space grey, Gold and Silver.  Apple offers two MacBook Air models, the base line system will run about $1000, verses $1250 for the more powerful option. The main deference between the two is the GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) and SSD storage. So if you are planning on doing entry level picture editing on your system, the more expensive option would be a better choice for you.

13 or 16-inch MacBook Pro

The MacBook Pro on the other hand is a different beast, and will require a bigger budget. It come into Play for people needing a more robust system, for tougher computing task. Unlike the Air the 13-inch Pro has an onboard fan that kicks in during long intense task. Such task can include 4K video rendering or Photo editing. The fan prevents the CPU from overheating and shutting down your system. That in turn, make the MacBook Pro a more suitable platform for professional needing to run demanding apps like Cad programs, Adobe Photoshop or graphics intensive games.

Buying advice

The MacBook Air or MacBook Pro are both solid choices.  The MacBook Air is a fantastic notebook for someone who is on the go, and is a smart choice for everyday use. It’s capable of running a wide variety of apps, like a web browser such as Chrome or Safari or a word processing program like Word of Google Docs. Meanwhile, the MacBook Pro is definitely tailored for professionals needing more horsepower under the hood. The 13-inch Pro starts around $1,300, and the 16-Inch Pro at $2,400. Read more on the Apple Website.

If you are still unsure about your next purchase, give us a call, we’ll be happy to help.

Sudo Bug is present in iMac, Mac Pro, Mac Air and Mini.

What is Sudo?

Sudo is a tool installed by default on most Linux systems. This tool usually allows a system administrator the ability to delegate authority, by giving certain user permission to run commands and apps on your Mac. Under the right condition it can also give a hacker root access to your macOS, allowing it to have full access and control of your entire system to do anything they want.

Security flaws

while two other Sudo security flaws have been disclosed over the past two years, the bug discovered in the last few days by a British security research firm, is the one considered the most dangerous of the three. The researcher has discovered, that this latest flaw in the Sudo app also impact the macOS operating system, and not just Linux. Usually there would be no public disclosure of this type of vulnerability until Apple had been given the chance to fix it, but in this particular case it has been speculated that the issue was present in MacOS for a long time. Apple corporate has been notified, and it is very likely that it will be fixed in a security update in the very near future.

Set your Mac to update automatically

To make sure your Mac is updated automatically when this patch is released, set your system to check and install updates automatically. If your Mac is still not configured for it, follow this procedure on how to unable it.

Procedure

On you Mac, choose the Apple menu, then go to System Preference, then click on Software update.
Apple recommend to receive the latest update automatically, and recommend that you select “Check for updates”, “Download new update when available” and “install system data files and security updates”.

Latest Mac Mini with M1 Chip

Launched in 2005 as an entry level for under $500.00, the Mac mini was priced to entice users to switch from Windows PCs to the Mac platform. The Mac mini does not get updated often, it has been redesigned over the years in 2018 and now more recently in November 2020.

The latest Apple update with the M1 chip brings the Mac mini to new performance height, and with a starting price of $699.00 this Mac mini is bound to be the best value in the compact computer category. The Mac mini is the only true small desktop in the mac family. Of course you can still select between the 21 and 27” iMac models which will probably be updated with the new M1 chip in the near future, but none of them are as compact and versatile as the Mac mini especially if you want to attach it to your TV or a spare monitor and transform it into a public display for your retail establishment.

The chassis of the Mac mini has not changed much since its first inception in 2005. The body is polished aluminum, with a satin finish, you can also get it in space grey which is my personal favorite. The body shape still has its seamless rounded corners, only the back of the unit is interrupted by I/O ports and a power switch.

Unlike the 2018 model the M1- based version does not have any upgradable component to it. The memory specification you choose at the time of purchase as well as internal storage capacity is what you’ll have to live with for the life of the unit.

The MacBook Pro and MacBook Air models is now jumping from the 2012 to 2013 models.
This new upgrade has been engineered to take full advantage of the new Processor Apple unveiled this fall, the M1 chip. The 2020 MacBook Air, MacBook Pro and Mac Mini have taken full advantage of this boost in performance from this new processor.

What Mac do I have?
