2013 Mac Pro Review: Apple’s New Desktop Boasts Dramatic Redesign, Dramatic Performance

2013 Mac Pro Review: Apple’s New Desktop Boasts Dramatic Redesign, Dramatic Performance | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


Apple's new Mac Pro is a sight to behold: In black aluminum with an eye-catching cylindrical design, there's little chance you'll ever mistake it for any other computer.


For anyone who’s been looking forward to a replacement for their aging gray tower Mac Pro, and for anyone who has the money and is willing to spend it, the Mac Pro is a no-brainer, but for the rest of us, we needn’t reach quite so high to touch the sky when it comes to Apple’s line of OS X hardware.



Mac Pro teardown reveals simple repair process and upgradeable CPU:

Andre Bontems's insight:


... Thunderbolt 2 can theoretically display 4K video while simultaneously transferring it thanks to a unified 20 Gbit/s throughput rate, and there are six ports on the back, combined with four for USB 3.0.

Review: Seiki's 39-inch 4K TV as a display for a 2013 MacBook Pro with Intel Iris

Review: Seiki's 39-inch 4K TV as a display for a 2013 MacBook Pro with Intel Iris | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


On Black Friday week, Amazon ($449) and Sears ($499) went into a price war on the 39-inch "120Hz" Seiki 4K displays culminating in a Sub-$400 price (that I jumped on) for the 39-inch variant.


Will I be using this as my main display? No.


30Hz is a little hard on the eyes, and the MacBook Pro’s Iris graphics really isn’t up to the task of pushing 4K out of its HDMI 1.4 port.  


However, as we look forward to the Mac Pro and its ability to throw 3 different 4K displays around at much higher framerates, this is a look into the near future.

How to build a 4K Hackintosh on the cheap for fun and profit

How to build a 4K Hackintosh on the cheap for fun and profit | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


Over the years, building ‘Hackintosh’ computers has become both a lot easier and more popular.


For those unfamiliar, a Hackintosh is essentially a machine running OS X on non-Apple approved and manufactured hardware.


There are many reasons to build a Hackintosh instead of buying a Mac directly from Apple.


They can be more expandable, faster, have more features and configurations, run quieter and can be a great learning experience.


One of the biggest reasons to go down the road of building your own, however, is price.


It’s no secret that Apple charges a premium for its products, especially if you don’t need some of the hardware (Thunderbolt for example).


And thanks to the ongoing growth of the Hackintosh community, the process has become very easy over the past few years.

Dell Teases Sub-$1000 28-Inch Ultra HD Monitor

Dell Teases Sub-$1000 28-Inch Ultra HD Monitor | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it



We may be seeing the first glimpses of Ultra HD/4K gaming becoming an affordable possibility for mainstream consumers.


Earlier this week the company released a new pair of UltraSharp Ultra HD panels geared toward graphics professionals, but also teased a future 3840 x 2160 display clocking in at less than $1000.


UltraHD, also commonly known as 4K, packs four times the resolution of Full HD (1080p), but until now has been a luxurious display option reserved for design professionals and wealthy A/V enthusiasts.
