In Fall 2012, Apple unveiled an unbelievably thin new 13-inch Retina display MacBook Pro and, as the lightest MacBook Pro ever, that latest release pushes the company's standards of industrial design. After seeing how far the laptops have come, we're a little nostalgic for the days of tangerine clamshell iBooks and tiny 12-inch PowerBooks. Take a look at 23 years of mobile personal computing, Mac-style.
How does one even begin to make such a scent, though? With an actual laptop, of course. An unopened MacBook Pro was sent to Air Aroma's suppliers in France, and from there, the noses "used the scents they observed unboxing the new Apple computer to source fragrance samples." The scent isn't being mass produced as of now, but there are undoubtedly some gadget junkies who'd probably be more than happy to catch a whiff of this unconventional fragrance.
While Glee didn't take home the big prize as favorite network comedy at the People's Choice Awards last night, one of its stars gets a nod from us for being a gal who likes to play around with computers. Heather Morris was on the Late Show With David Letterman earlier this week, and shared that she likes to mess around on her MacBook, making her own short video clips.
As someone who also likes to teach herself how to master computer programs and gadgets, I salute you, Heather. Check out her endearing video (she sounds like she's hilarious in real life) below.
Incase knows it's getting hot in here, so they added some much-needed ventilators to their iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, MacBook Air, and MacBook cases for Summer. Really, it's just their updated Perforated Collection ($29 - $59) that includes new colors and devices. Cover your 11-inch and 13-inch MacBook Airs with a white, black, or blue case, while your iPod Touch, iPhone 3GS, and iPhone 4 can show off variations of blue and pink. Get 'em while they're hot!
Fitting your 13- and 15-inch MacBooks, the Incase accessories range from $50 for a simple sleeve, to $130 for a sturdy backpack that fits all sizes of MacBooks. There's even a padded sling-style Field Bag ($70) made just for toting around your iPad!

These wall candle displays were made from the packing materials that came in my MacBook shipping box. It seemed like a waste to just toss them in the recycling. So a little craft paint and voilà! Add some poster sticker mounts and just place them anywhere on the wall that works for you.
Coming in four stylized patterns — dark and light Tartan, Cookie Camo brown, and Spexy Hexy purple — you can rock these any time of year and still look on trend. Since the cases are of the hard shell variety, you get an extra layer of protection along with Speck's signature soft-touch finish. The cases will hit the virtual shelves this October for $70, which is still soon enough to make a statement when you head back to school!
There are plenty of gadgets for the geeky kitchen goddess to choose from, but this MacBook Cutting Board ($54) has to take the cake. Pun intended. Not only is it made in the shape of what seems to be a 13-inch MacBook Pro, but it's also crafted from apple tree wood. Coincidence? I think not. I gotta say, if you can't afford the real thing, this may satiate your Apple cravings for a bit longer. What do you think — totally geeky or geek chic?
