Deciding what type of mobile computing device you should purchase can be a confusing one. Some say laptops are on their way out, and tablets are the future. While others are saying the complete opposite. In my opinion, they can coexist, as they both serve different purposes. In this article I’m going to help explain which choice might be better for you.

Apple has announced all new iPads and Macs at their event today. One of the biggest and more surprising announcement today was the iMac with 5k Retina Display. This marks the first Retina iMac to ever be released. There’s a lot to cover, so I’m just going to jump right in.

I type a lot on my computer, and chances are you do too. Another likely scenario is that you are using a rubber dome keyboard with your computer. They work after all, for a while at least. Eventually though, they wear out and need to be replaced. So, you’ll probably go out to the store and buy another terrible keyboard that’ll wear out in a year. Rinse and repeat, year after year. Well, it’s time for a change, and it’s time to switch to a mechanical keyboard!

I got my first smartphone back in the end of 2011, it was a BlackBerry Curve 8530. It was a fine little device, with it’s quirks here and there, but a well built device nonetheless. It had a great keyboard, the trackpad navigation was actually very nice, the UI layout was great, the keyboard was legendary, and it was built like a tank. I owned this device for about 2 years, and loved using it everyday. Messaging was it’s strong point, and It had the best support for email I’d ever seen. Push was always very consistent over BIS, and replying to them was just as quick and easy using the keyboard. Texting and BBM were also great on the device. It really was the perfect messaging device I’d used, and by used I mean every few seconds of the day! That doesn’t mean I didn’t use it all the time to stream video and music either.

Yesterday, Apple made the 2013 Mac Pro available through their “Certified Refurbished” online store at a 15% discount. These Mac Pros have been previously owned, however they go through Apple’s strict refurbishing process. The models available range from the base quad core model, all the way up to a loaded 12 core beast.
