Yesterday, alarming rumors appeared on the network that Apple may add a cutout to the screen of the new MacBook Pro, similar to the branded “bangs” on the iPhone. Now these messages threaten to be confirmed by the harsh reality – the first photo of such a MacBook Pro has appeared.
A photo of the MacBook Pro screen with a cutout was published by the user AnyTurtle999 of the Chinese social network Weibo.
In the photo, the network informant DuanRui drew attention, which has already managed to prove itself well for the iPhone 13 leaks, including the prediction of a reduced “bangs” and photo layouts with a characteristic “diagonal” main camera. DuanRui also confirmed that despite the notch in the screen, the laptop will still use the Touch ID fingerprint scanner rather than Face ID.
As noted by the authoritative thematic resource MacRumors, it is not yet clear whether the photo is genuine, there are grounds for some skepticism. However, if the photo turns out to be real, we can assume that the following MacBook Pro models will receive very thin bezels around the display.
Interestingly, not everyone accepts the idea of ”bangs” with hostility. In the comments, there are, for example, such responses: “If the choice is between the cutout and the wider bezels of the screen, then I choose the cutout.”
As reported yesterday, instead of the iPhone’s Face ID TrueDepth camera, the MacBook Pro notch will house a 1080p webcam, True Tone light sensor and microphone. A similar cut is predicted for the updated 2022 MacBook Air. The MacBook Pro’s notch is similar in size to the iPhone 12’s bangs, while the iPhone 13’s is smaller.
A strange gaming laptop without a discrete graphics card and not at all with Windows. Lenovo is preparing the release of the IdeaPad Gaming Chromebook
Lenovo is preparing a gaming laptop of the IdeaPad Gaming line, which, firstly, does not work under Windows, and secondly, does not have a discrete graphics card.
The full name of the novelty is the IdeaPad Gaming Chromebook, and here it is already clear that Chrome OS acts as the OS. But the operating system here is just one of the oddities of this gaming laptop. The second, as already mentioned, is the lack of a discrete graphics card. What’s more, it’s not just some Ryzen 7 6800U, whose iGPU is so powerful that such a laptop could hardly be called a gaming laptop. Instead, Intel processors serve as the heart here: Core i3-1215U or Core i5-1235U. Recall that their graphics cores are very modest in their capabilities, so you don’t even have to think about some modern demanding games. Moreover, the laptop also has a screen with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels, which creates an additional load on the GPU.
As a result, it is completely unclear why the laptop is gaming, but here even the design is the same as in other Lenovo gaming models.
As for the rest of the parameters, the novelty is equipped with a 120-Hz IPS screen with a diagonal of 16 inches, a 512 GB SSD, 8 GB of RAM, a pair of USB-C ports, a pair of USB-A, microSD, Wi-Fi 6 and an aluminum cover.
Price data is not yet available.

Asus announced the start of sales of its flagship Zenbook 17 Fold OLED (UX9702) laptop with a flexible 17.3-inch OLED display, which was announced at the beginning of the year at CES 2022.
The laptop received a flexible display with an aspect ratio of 4: 3 with a resolution of 2560 x 1920 pixels with a refresh rate of 60 Hz. It can be folded in half to give two 1920 x 1280 pixel displays with a 3:2 aspect ratio. There is no bezel between the screens. The screen is Dolby Vision certified and reproduces 100% of the DCI-P3 range.
The hinge provides an opening angle of up to 180 degrees, while it can withstand 30,000 opening and closing cycles. If you open and close it 10 times a day, it should last about 8 years.
Inside is a 12th Gen Intel Core i7-1250U processor with Intel Iris Xe graphics, 16GB LPDDR5-5200 RAM, and a 1TB PCIe SSD. The battery has a capacity of 75 Wh and comes with a 65 W charger.
The Asus Zenbook 17 Fold OLED is only about 8.7mm thick when unfolded (17.4mm when folded). The weight of this laptop is only about 1.5 kg, and the diagonal is about 12.5 inches. Asus Zenbook 17 Fold OLED received an array of four microphones and two cameras.
The kit comes with a Bluetooth version of the ErgoSense keyboard with a built-in touchpad and the ability to connect to two devices at once.
In China, the price is $2,800.
Bloomberg: Apple will cancel the October presentation of the new iPad and MacBook Pro
According to the latest news from well-known insider Mark Gurman of Bloomberg, Apple will not be hosting the October event this year. Instead, the company will simply start selling new devices.
Recall that usually after the September presentation of new iPhones and smart watches, the company also holds a press conference in October, at which it introduces the new iPad and MacBook Pro.
Two new tablets are expected to debut this year, namely the iPad 10 and iPad Pro 2022. The affordable iPad 10 may keep the Home button, but the bezel will be smaller. Inside, the Apple A14 single-chip system is expected, and the interface will be replaced with USB-C.
The iPad Pro 2022 will get Apple’s latest M2 platform, MagSafe magnetic wireless charging, but the 11-inch version will still not use the Mini LED display.
New 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros with M2 Pro/Max processors are also expected.
