Macworld’s review of the latest 13-inch MacBook Pro — The 13-inch MacBook Air changes are relatively minor, but its standing in Apple’s lineup is what changed the most.

Intel may be prepping next-gen Skylake chips for August debut, may curtail Broadwell sales — Chip giant Intel is reportedly targeting August of this year for the initial rollout of its next-generation Skylake microarchitecture, a timeline that likely means Apple’s high-end Macs will skip the oft-delayed Broadwell line.

[Can’t wait – I really dislike boring, personality-free, grossly-overused Helvetica.]
