Apple® MacBook® with new chips

With the disclosure coming from Intel that it is about to initiate its regular shipment of the Sandy Bridge processors, the question arises as to how much time will Apple take to shift the MacBook to the latest Intel chips? It has to be remembered that earlier with the start of the shipments of the Intel Core i5 and i7 processor technology, Apple had started incorporating the processors in its laptops and PCs pretty soon.

It is believed that Apple is sure to upgrade 15- and 17-inch versions of MacBook Pro to the new Sandy Bridge chips as soon as possible. When Intel introduced Intel Core i5 and Core i7 in the market, the processors were very successful. Apple needs to move its MacBook laptops to the latest Sandy Bridge chips and that too very fast. The best thing that can happen after Sandy Bridge is believed to be a chip code named Ivy Bridge. This is likely to be made available by the mid of 2012. In the mean time, Apple therefore needs to upgrade its Mac products with the Sandy Bridge silicon to stand competition with the lighter and sleek versions of the MacBook as produced by other companies.

New Apple® MacBook laptops run Windows® 7 Only

Apple has withdrawn support for the older versions of Windows OS namely the Windows XP and Windows Vista. It has always displayed stubbornness about backward compatibility and providing support for outdated software and hardware. The Boot Camp utility allows users in the Apple Mac OS X to install and run other Operating Systems on it. But now the new MacBook Pros which were announced recently and the newest MacBook Air models will not be provided with support for Windows XP and Windows Vista OS through the Boot Camp.

Boot Camp is a utility for running the Windows operating system on your personal Mac. The applications running on the Windows OS will have complete access to the all the hardware functionalities like multiple processing, accelerated 3D graphics, high speed ports and multiple connectivity options like USB, FireWire, Wi-Fi, AirPort etc. The Boot Camp support drivers that allow you to utilize these options with your Windows operating system on your Mac OS X installation DVD as well as other drivers. These get automatically installed after inserting the disc into a Mac after completing the installation procedure of Windows. What Boot Camp actually does is create a partition for your Windows OS without wiping off your current Mac OS X. It also provides you with ease of switching between the two OS by pressing the option (‘Alt’) key when starting up. You can also use the start up disk control interface in Windows or the Mac OS X start up disk options to set one of the operating systems as the default one whenever you power up your Mac.

Boot camp had been introduced in 2006 and has been a part of the Mac OS X since 2007 with the advent of the Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. Apple released a statement saying that Windows XP and Windows Vista drivers have not been supplied for this range and are not supported. To be able to run Windows 7 on Boot Camp, the following requirements must be met, an optical drive is a must and MacBook Air users would need an external optical disc drive to install Windows 7 successfully. A blank CD or USB storage device or any other external storage device is a must. For the computers running 32-bit versions of Windows, a minimum of 16 GB of free space is a must and for the 64-bit versions of Windows you would require at least 20 GB of free space on your computer. You would also require the Boot Camp Assistant, which is pre-installed in your Mac under Applications/Utilities.

Apple continues to grow bigger. Apple sold $10.47 billion iPhone and iPhone accessories in the most recent quarter, making them way ahead of Nokia. According to AppleInsider, Nokia has earned around $9.7 billion in the recent quarter from its devices and services division. Nokia and Apple both manufacture several devices and offer services for their mobile phones. Nokia has its Ovi music app store for handheld computers and tablets in this division. Apple also has the iTunes store for its products.

Apple CEO Steve Jobs made this observation about a year ago that Apple is the biggest mobile device company today. To compete with Apple, Nokia recently replaced its CEO to counter the rising surge of smartphone competitors. Apple CFO, Peter Oppenheimer also said about iPhone’s rapidly increasing popularity in Europe. Apple is growing due to its high-end phones not by undercutting its rivals. Apple’s dominance is getting bigger and bigger, their phones are also way user-friendly. The new iOS 4 by Apple also has some business features that were desired by the enterprise sectors. Apple has the advantage having a phone with own iOS, that makes a great advantage for Apple App store. As we are seeing the current rise in the application downloads, Apple will soon see its 10 billionth download. In spite of competition from its rivals, they are hoping a great rise in their customer base.
