30 Years of the Mac

This is the 30 year anniversary of the Mac! Apple celebrates by taking over their homepage and posting a video and timeline. Incidentally, this month is the 23rd anniversary of MacLab. We’ve been around quite some time too.

You Wanted Thunderbolt Storage?

Here you go, mega Thunderbolt storage for your new Mac Pro, Mini or iMac.  8 bays and up to 32TB. RAID for data safety and speed and tray free bays so that drives can be slipped in and out in seconds. Have us custom configure one of these screaming monsters from CRU-Wiebetech for you.

Mavericks for Designers?

Graphic Designers considering upgrading to OS 10.9 Mavericks might want to hold off for at least a little bit. Here is the compatibility status of a few major players.

Adobe Creative Suite/Creative Cloud: “No major issues.” Adobe statement here.

Extensis Suitcase: Update coming for Suitcase Fusion 5 soon.
Update: Suitcase Fusion 5 version 16.0.4 includes OS X Mavericks compatibility.

QuarkXPress: 10.01 coming shortly. 9 may have an update end of Nov.
Update: QuarkXPress 10.01 has been released with Mavericks compatibility.

Summary: Give it a little time. Proceed with caution!

Mac Pro Availability

The Mac Pros as we know them are no longer available, being replaced some time in December by the new black cylindrical high end models. In the meantime if you’d like to grab a standard Mac Pro before they’re all gone, go with Apple Certified refurbished. We’ve had excellent experiences with the refurbished Macs from Apple. Please use our affiliate link since it returns a few dollars to MacLab for the recommendation. You’ll find deals on iMacs, MacBooks Pros, Minis and more.
