Apple Announces Revolutionary New MacBook
Apple announced their new MacBook model on March 9th and whether you are a Mac or a PC, it is certainly a game changer. Only the future will tell whether it’s a positive or negative change. Apple decided to forgo the usual ports in favor of a single USB-C port that functions as a one-size-fits-all solution.
Apple is Putting Their Money on USB-C
The new USB port is to become an industry standard and simultaneously functions as a charging, video and data port. While some may laud the elegant simplicity of the design, others—including die hard Mac purists—will certainly be at a loss over their loss of ports. The notebook gets an impressive 9 hours of battery life on wireless web, but when that runs out, how do you connect to a monitor AND charge? And what if you also need to use your USB port for, you know, transferring data? Apple is hoping you will do a lot of this sort of thing wirelessly, and they will sell an adapter for when you need to plug in multiple devices. However, they will still likely have a lot of questions and user scenarios that they’ll need to address come release. Still, now that Apple has made this step in favor of USB-C, we will likely be seeing a new wave of competitors and peripherals hitting the market. It will be exciting to see how this new standard serves to change and evolve technology and design.
A Desk Fit for Everyone, Whatever’s On Top of It
Whether or not this new laptop is for you, the Xdesk truly is a one-size-fits-all solution. It works if you are a Mac fanatic or a PC for life, an early adopter or still trudging along on your faithful desktop. Minimal but elegant design, numerous features and add-ons, and 267 different positions give each user a customizable experience. Programmable settings allow single or multiple users to set according to their personal preferences, even if they’re not yet into the whole standing desk concept. With greater flexibility and accessibility—along with a host of other benefits—adjustable height desks just might become the new standard.
