MacBook Pro Laptops are Prohibited from Entering The Aircraft

MacBook Pro Laptops are Prohibited from Entering The Aircraft

The United States Civil Aviation Regulatory Agency (US), the FAA forbids passengers from carrying certain MacBook Pro laptops into the aircraft cabin. The old MacBook Pro in question is a 15-inch MacBook Pro released in mid-2015. This device is also marketed between 2015 and 2017.

The ban was implemented by the FAA after Apple appealed that the MacBook Pro model was prone to catch fire or explode. "FAA is aware that there is a MacBook Pro laptop equipped with a problematic battery," said the FAA. "In early July, we notified a number of airlines about this information, and then we told the public," the FAA added.

The ban on carrying the MacBook Pro was also posted by the FAA as an appeal so that airlines comply with aviation safety regulations set by the FAA since 2016. However, it is not certain how airport officials or airlines check the MacBook Pro which is equipped with an easy battery burning it. But a little picture, one group of European airlines, TUI Airlines, will appeal to passengers regarding the prohibition of carrying the affected MacBook Pro onboarding gates and before passengers take-off.

For information, this is not the first time electronic devices are prohibited from being carried on a plane. In 2016, smartphones made by Samsung Galaxy Note 7 were also banned from entering the plane.

That's because the Galaxy Note 7's battery is reportedly problematic and explosive. Cases of an explosion of Galaxy Note 7 also happened several times, not just once. How to check for a problematic MacBook Pro Although hit by explosive issues, Apple claims not all 15-inch MacBook Pro (2015) has a problematic battery. In the US, as reported by a Bloomberg report, there are around 432,000 units of MacBook Pro that have problematic batteries, while in Canada there are about 26,000 units.

To find out if your 15-inch (2015) MacBook Pro has a problem or not, you can visit Apple's Battery Recall Program site at the following link. On that site, you can enter the serial number of the related product and can get information on whether your MacBook Pro is equipped with an explosive battery or not. If so, Apple will offer a free battery replacement with a number of mechanisms listed on the site.

ASUS Launches Vivobook 14 A411UF as a Multi-Function Laptop

ASUS Launches Vivobook 14 A411UF as a Multi-Function Laptop

ASUS is renewing their VivoBook product line in the Indonesian market. After presenting the VivoBook Flip 14 and VivoBook S14 last year, this time the Taiwanese manufacturer presented another model, but still in the 14-inch laptop segment, which was most widely chosen by users throughout the country.

Unlike the previous variant of the VivoBook 14 which is more targeted at the convertible segment or performance, the new model is presented more to the mainstream user segment, but still comes with a very capable performance in its class.

This laptop is present for mainstream users. So it is more general and suitable for daily activities, without demands for certain needs.

To support storage capacity and performance, the ASUS VivoBook 14 A441UF uses dual-storage design that combines data transfer speeds from SSD devices, as well as the broad capacity typically offered by hard drives. This solution is ideal if the laptop will be used as a daily computing device and also entertainment.

This latest laptop from ASUS comes with a screen that has a thin frame. With NanoEdge, ASUS can achieve a ratio of screen and body ratio to 77%. So that the 14-inch screen can be present on a 13-inch laptop body. More concise but more functional and pleasing to the eye.

In order to improve performance further, the ASUS VivoBook 14 also supports the Intel Optane memory technology feature that can accelerate system performance for faster multitasking, shorter boot-up and resume time and faster application loading.

The ASUS VivoBook 14 A411UF comes with an Intel Core i5-8250U processor with speeds up to 3.40GHz. In addition to users who have a limited budget, can choose the A411UF Core i5 variant without using an SSD, or which is powered by an Intel Core i3 processor that works at 2.4 GHz speed.
