Apple will fulfill the dream of its longtime fans. MagSafe Magnetic Charger Returns to MacBook Laptops

Apple is now preparing to release a new line of laptops, including the MacBook Air. This was told by the editor of the authoritative resource Bloomberg Mark Gurman (Mark Gurman).

According to the source, Apple has decided to respond to criticism and requests from longtime loyal Mac users. Yes, we are talking about the return of the legendary MagSafe magnetic charging technology.

The next generation of Apple-branded processors is also expected in the new MacBook Air. The company will try to make 13-inch notebooks more compact by “squeezing” the bezels around the display, as well as thinner and lighter. A 15-inch version is also being considered. The standard 13-inch version is expected to have a pair of USB 4 connectors. While the late 2002 models are seen as an entry-level offering by Apple, the new MacBook Air will be a class above.

Note that the other day, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, known for his ties to the Apple production chain, predicted the return of MagSafe to the high-end MacBook Pro series. Thus, two independent sources are already talking about the appearance of MagSafe in Apple laptops.

As a reminder, Apple has been using MagSafe power connectors in its laptops since 2006. The design provided for the use of magnets to hold the adapter, which users really liked as a safe and convenient solution. However, after 10 years, Apple began to get rid of MagSafe. The first laptop without a MagSafe connector was the MacBook Pro, introduced in late 2016. By 2019, Apple had finally gotten rid of MagSafe and completely switched to USB Type-C for powering laptops.

Mark Gurman has a solid track record of leaking Apple products over the years. Last year, he unveiled the iPhone 12 lineup, for example, long before the announcement, and in 2019 the iPhone 11.

In general, Acer Legendary Edge has been sold in China since last year, but in the version for Japan it has a different processor – instead of the “Chinese” Ryzen 7 6800U, Ryzen 7 Pro 6850U is installed. Otherwise, there are no changes in the hardware platform: the laptop is endowed with 16 GB of LPDDR5-6400 RAM and a 512 GB PCIe 4.0 SSD. Moreover, there are two slots for SSD in the laptop.

On February 1, a large Samsung Unpacked event will take place, within which the premiere of both the new flagship phones of the Galaxy S23 series and the new Galaxy Book3 series laptops is expected.

Galaxy Book3 Ultra

The most interesting thing is the cost of the flagship model Galaxy Book3 Ultra. As you can see, the laptop will not be cheap. For a version with a Core i9-13900H processor, GeForce RTX 4070, an AMOLED 3K screen, 32 GB of RAM and 1 TB of flash memory, they will ask for almost 4000 euros! Judging by the announcements at CES 2023 in early January, many gaming laptops with GeForce RTX 4080 graphics will be more affordable. But the Galaxy Book3 Ultra is, of course, not about pure performance, but about maximum performance in the most compact device.

As for the simpler version of the Galaxy Book3 Ultra, there will be a Core i7-13700H and GeForce RTX 4050. Well, in the base one, apparently, there will be the same Core i7-13700H, but without discrete graphics.

We already wrote about the characteristics of the Samsung Galaxy Book 3 Pro: these laptops (in two formats – with screens with a diagonal of 14 and 16 inches) will be equipped with a Core i5-1340P and Core i7-1360P CPU, and dGPU is not provided for them.

Earlier, SnoopyTech published high-quality renderings of the Asus Zenfone 9 and Xiaomi 12T Pro before their official premiere.

As you can see, the differences between the two MacBook Pros on early platforms are minimal, ranging from large parts to the location of various chips on motherboards.

iFixit followed Apple’s disassembly guide, which is 160 pages long. The process is very time consuming, but there is nothing new in relation to the previous model. The score for maintainability is also low: 5 points.
