• MacBook Unibody Model A1342 Teardown

    Quote from Solipsism:

    I’d wager that the increased run time is due to the LED-backlighting over LCD and that the stated run times are as accurate as previous models.

    You mean LED backlighting vs CCFL?

    LCD is still the display tech. There would be a possible marked difference if it was an OLED display, but given the amount of white on our desktops and that current OLED displays draw significantly more power to display white, it may not save that much power were it to be used.

  • Magic Mouse Teardown

    I want an Apple mouse which uses an inductive pad to charge it. None of this environmentally unsound replaceable battery nonsense. How cool would that be? Make an inductive dock which can charge an iPhone, a laptop, a mouse, etc... now *that* would be doing something interesting.

    LED Display - is it RGB LED? Is it side lit or back lit?

    RGB LCD with LED backlight. It is not an OLED display, which is a common source of confusion (OLED vs LCD, LED backlight vs CCFL).

    I think its a shame that Apple have neglected the stunning internal design of the early iMac G5s!... they were a work of art inside. But now... theres all this cable and clutter...

    Yes, seriously!

    A swansong for the G5, I guess ;)
