If you need an insanely fast external SSD drive for your Mac or PC, then look no further than the Elgato Thunderbolt Drive+. Despite the name, you can use this drive with either Thunderbolt or USB 3.0, and since it is an SSD with no moving parts, it's ridiculous fast with read and write speeds. I use it to do video editing directly off of for Final Cut Pro X, and it never skips a beat.
You can pick up the Elgato Thunderbolt Drive+ now.
Apple has introduced the first desktop computer with a built-in 5K display in the iMac with Retina 5K display, and we are opening one up in this episode! The 5K Retina display is packed with 14.7 million pixels, with a resolution of 5120 x 2880. Yes, that is insane, and gives a lot of screen real estate and leeway to work on dense projects, like video editing and photo editing.
Check out our unboxing and overview of this beautiful iMac and the amazing display that it packs - it's the Mac with the best visual clarity.

The folks over at OWC just got one of the new 2.66GHz 12-core Mac Pro units in their office, and they slapped together and quick and dirty unboxing gallery showing off the goods. Of course, with Apple sticking by their longstanding top-of-the-line desktop design, nothing on the outside really looks all the much different. Still, though, it’s a sign that these beasts are finally shipping, and that’s gotta count for something.
You can pick up the new Mac Pro now from Apple.

A few days ago, Apple introduced their Magic Trackpad to the world. It’s a multi-touch wireless trackpad device that mimics the trackpads found on MacBook and MacBook Pro computers, but optimized for the Mac mini, iMac, and Mac Pro.

In the meantime, though, we took a bunch of Magic Trackpad photos and put them up in our Magic Trackpad unboxing gallery. Go ahead and take a look, this thing is sexy.
You can pick up a Magic Trackpad for $69.
