Snow Leopard 10a432 Golden Master

Progress on ‘s is nearing completion, as the next version of Mac OS X is set for release sometime next month. To that effect, it is widely believed that today’s Developer Preview seed, build 10A432, is the 10.6 Golden Master. One big change from the last few Snow Leopard releases is that this build needs to be installed fresh from a bootable partition or DVD, no more of that Software Update stuff. The download is 6.1GB in size, and if that isn’t telling about the progress of Snow Leopard, we don’t know what is.

It’s almost here - can you feel it?

Unibody MacBook Pro 15-inch finally gets matte display option

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Apple, Design, PC / Laptop

MacBook Pro 15 inch matte option

When launched the MacBook Pros, one of the loudest cries we heard from the Mac community was in relation to the loss of the matte display option. You see, while Apple touted colors that “pop” a bit more off of the glossy screen, those of us who like to be, you know, mobile with our notebook computers, cried foul. The problem with a glossy-only option (or lack of option, really) is that if you are using your MacBook Pro in the sun, you essentially have a screen that can double as a mirror.

Well, Apple has heard those cries, and has finally brought a matte screen option to the 15-inch MacBook Pro, something that the 17-inch unibody version has had since the get-go. It’ll cost you an extra $50 for the privilege, and you also lose the black “borderless” infinity bezel around the screen, and instead get a silver bezel like previous versions of the MacBook Pro.
