Final Cut Pro X

It has been two years since Apple debuted the completely redesigned Final Cut Pro X in the Mac App Store for only $300.

New Mac Pro Delivers Unprecedented Performance, Proves Apple Supports High-End Computing

Inside the Mac Pro, Apple's most powerful and configurable Mac

There have been concerns about the fate of the Mac Pro ever since Apple killed off the Xserve a year and a half ago. Although Apple didn’t say the Mac Pro was on the chopping block, the company did let it go without an update for quite some time.

The Biggest Apple Stories Of 2011 [Year In Review]

Wow! 2011 has been one of the most interesting years in recent memory for Apple Inc. Of course the death of Apple’s co-founder, Steve Jobs, stands out as one of the most important events of the year for Apple, but there have been a load of other stories too that have made 2011 a very memorable year for the fruit company.
