Apple wants to do better than others, so the first OLED MacBooks will have to wait at least another five years

Published

Apple has begun negotiations with Samsung and LG to produce OLED panels for its laptops.

The Cupertino giant originally planned to release the first such MacBook in 2025, but plans seem to have changed.

The main problem for Apple right now is the price of the panels it needs. The fact is that the company wants to use panels consisting of two layers in its tablets and laptops. Modern OLED panels for smartphones are single-layer, but tablets and laptops have a longer lifespan, and the two-layer structure not only improves brightness, but also prolongs the panel’s lifespan. However, the double-layer panels that Apple needs will be too expensive at this stage, which is why the company is shifting plans.

However, the source says that in 2023 or 2024 the company will release the first iPads with such panels, but laptops will be released sometime after 2025.

This is the worlds lightest 16 inch laptop It is equipped

Acer has launched the world’s lightest 16-inch laptop. Acer Swift Edge was shown a couple of months ago, but now it has become known that the novelty has appeared on sale at a price of $ 1,500.

Acer Swift Edge really impresses with its weight. With a 16-inch screen, the laptop weighs only 1.1 kg! This is not much even for 13-inch models, let alone 16-inch models.

To achieve such a mass, Acer came out, including through the use of an aluminum-magnesium alloy and not the largest battery. It here has a capacity of 54 Wh, which is quite small for a 16-inch model. But this supposedly should be enough for 10 hours of work, according to Acer itself.

But low weight is not all that a laptop can please. First, it also has a 4K UHD OLED screen. Secondly, the Ryzen 6000U processors serve as the heart, which are not only very productive, but also offer very powerful iGPUs.

From the rest, you can note RAM up to 32 GB, SSD up to 1 TB, a pair of USB-C 3.2 Gen2 ports with support for DisplayPort and USB Power Delivery, HDMI 2.1, two USB 3.2 connectors, Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2.

For those same $ 1,500, a far from the most basic version with a Ryzen 7 6800U, 16 GB of RAM and a 1 TB SSD is already available. That is, modifications with the Ryzen 5 6600U will be even cheaper, but there are no prices yet.

Linux has become dangerous one of the cores of

The Linux kernel 6.0 was recently released and version 6.1 is scheduled to be released soon. However, many users have not switched to it yet. And, as it turned out, one of the old kernels has a problem that affects the video subsystem. It can physically damage the display. This concerns the Linux kernel 5.19.12, but in version 5.19.13 the problem was solved.

Linux has become dangerous - one of the cores of the system can physically disable the laptop display, although not on all models

The failure only affected laptops with Intel processors that were running a distribution based on the Linux 5.19.12 kernel. The problem seemed to be related to the Intel graphics driver, which caused the display to flash rapidly in white. One of the engineers who is involved in the development of the core of the system explained that it was an incorrect delay in powering up the LCD panel. Because of this, the display could fail, because it is simply not designed to work in this mode for a long time.

It is noted that the problem manifested itself on laptops, where the screens were directly connected to the integrated video core. It was also relevant for models with Nvidia Optimus and some models with Radeon graphics (if available).

It is noted that laptops with AMD processors, conventional and hybrid, are not affected by this problem. Also, the developers advised not to install the “problem” update for those who have not had time to update.

And earlier it became known about a new problem with Windows 11 22H2.
