new range rover

With a 50-year history in the market, Range Rover has a hell of a pedigree. But in taking the luxury SUV into its fifth generation, Jaguar Land Rover is focusing on the future as much as the past.

The MacBook Pro now firmly removes Macs from the ‘buy if you prefer macOS to Windows’ category and places them firmly in the ‘just plain better’ camp. The stats don’t lie.
