Mac Overview Updated August 3, 2016

Mac

Apple’s current Mac lineup consist of both notebook and desktop computers ranging in screen size from 11-inch to 27-inch to headless Macs. The MacBook Air is offered in 11-inch and 13-inch options, the MacBook features a 12-inch Retina display, and the MacBook Pro is currently available in 13-inch and 15-inch options. A non-Retina MacBook Pro still exists as well; a 17-inch MacBook Pro is the last display size to be discontinued. Apple’s Mac mini and Mac Pro both ship without peripherals — mouse, keyboard, display — and aren’t updated very frequently. Apple’s iMac is available in 21.5-inch and 27-inch versions, both with Retina displays.

While the PC market has been declining for 7 quarters straight, Apple has generally been immune to the decline, often posting gains in terms of worldwide and United States market share. Gartner and IDC are both out with new reports today, however, that both show Apple is no longer immune to the slowing Global PC market.

Previously, macOS 10.12 has only been available to registered developers with access to a paid account; the public beta program is a free alternative that allows non-developers to test Apple’s latest software updates before their general release.

If you’ve been holding out for a new standalone desktop display from Apple, you’re either going to take news of the Thunderbolt Display being discontinued as a sign of good things to come, or as a cue to finally purchase a new 4K or 5K display from someone else. For most, especially considering Apple itself is recommending you purchase a third-party display, the latter option is going to be the more likely.

While Apple didn’t recommend any specific third-party alternatives during its discontinuation announcement of the Thunderbolt display last week, we’ve done the work for you and put together our top picks for the best 4K & 5K displays for Mac available to buy right now.

The Finder’s list view is my favorite way to view the folders and files within the macOS Finder, because it provides a wealth of information via columns that can be sorted on.
