Can’t get enough of that new Macbook smell? Now you can get it in a candle

Now that fall is upon us, it’s time to break out the candles and bathe our homes in soothing scents like pumpkin pie, apple spice, and now — a different kind of Apple, that of the Mac variety. That’s right — it’s no longer the new car smell that consumers of the 21st century are pining after — we’d rather take a long whiff of a newly opened laptop.

Apple accessory maker TwelveSouth has not only captured that smell, but has found a way to allow Apple enthusiasts to enjoy it year-round. It’s all thanks to the New Mac Soy Candle, a 100-percent soy wax candle that boasts “hints of mint, peach, basil, lavender, mandarin, and sage” and other ingredients that apparently render it akin to a new product from the iEmpire.

Whether you’re a techie or a candle connoisseur, this New Mac Soy Candle will tickle your senses. It’s hand-poured in Charleston, South Carolina, and boasts a burn time of 45 to 55 hours. So really, it’ll last for just as long as the new electronic smell of your iPhone or iPad.

You can buy the candle now from TwelveSouth’s website for the price of $24, and enjoy free shipping throughout the U.S. And hey, if you can’t afford to get the new Mac smell from an actual new Mac (which will set you back $1,299), this may be the way to budget shop (though alas, you can’t expect your candle to send emails or Skype your friends).

But if a candle isn’t on your wishlist this holiday season, there are a number of other items that you might peruse on the TwelveSouth website. How does an iDrink Can Cooler Set, sound, or better yet, the O to Refresh water bottle? Believe us, no matter what your interest (as long as it’s Apple related), you’ll probably be able to find it. Our only question — Will Android candles be next?

New MacBooks are coming, but they aren’t worth waiting for

Ah, yes -- the eternal question MacBook buyers have: Is it worth waiting?

On the surface, it might seem like it. After all, we're at the beginning of a new chip refresh cycle, with Apple launching the M3 in November. But if you're looking at buying any of the available MacBooks, I'd say you're in a good spot to buy one that's currently available and not regret your choices come next year.

Apple 16-inch MacBook Pro: don’t make a mistake you’ll regret
The MacBook Pro open on a table in front of a couch.

When it comes to the best Apple laptops, the 16-inch MacBook Pro is the true flagship model. It contains the fastest chips, the most storage, and the largest and most impressive display. It’s also the most expensive MacBook Pro, easily costing you thousands of dollars with just a few upgraded components.

That makes it tricky to work out how you should configure it and which version you should buy. There may only be three main choices you have to make -- the chip, the memory and the storage -- but each one carries a lot of weight. It’s important to make the right decision when you pull the trigger.

I’m finally ready to stop recommending Apple’s cheapest MacBook
Apple MacBook Air M1 open, on a table.

Apple’s MacBook lineup is a bit all over the place at the moment. It’s full of fantastic machines that trounce the competition, yet picking the right Mac for you has never been more confusing. But amid all the uncertainty, one thing is for sure: I can finally stop recommending the M1 MacBook Air.

For years now, the M1 MacBook Air has been a great choice for anyone looking to dip their toes into the world of Apple laptops. But three years after its launch, it’s no longer looking like the solid purchase it used to be.
A strong debut
