My understanding is no it doesn't require an Intel chips set. Further I hardly believe that Apple would go all int on TB and tie its hands with an agreement that didn't allow them to produce their own TB chips. TB does require PCI Express but that is just another port to add to the SoC.The other part of the equation here is the IP and talent Apple got with the purchase of PA Semi. PA apparently had a lot of experience with high speed serial ports in the chips they...
They are stil Solid State Disk drives. Sure they have a PCI Express interface but that doesn't mean performance doesn't vary.xCode is a beast and if you have more than one release it can significantly impact you available space. Add to that Eclipse for PyDev, HTML and other codeine where XCode sucks and right there you will have lost significant disk space. Instal TeX and you loose a bunch of more space. I actually dropped OpenOffice for Apples apps to save a little...
Unfortunately they do impact use and the rest of the world. Remember the dark ages lasted for far to long and it has taken humanity centuries to recover lost knowledge from that little fiasco brought on by religion.That certainly could be the issue. In some cases though I suspect tired means they have given up! It would be nice to see the Mini refactored into something different. It is too expensive for what it is and frankly I can see Apple going two different ways...
Lucky you! That is not the norm however.You do realize that in many cases the smallish SSDs are significantly slower than the large ones right?That is my whole point, most installations go far beyond 50 GB for system files and apps. When I frst got my MBP I thinking I had used up 70'GB of space before the second day just doing app installation and the like. Add on a couple of VM's and you have effectively plugged up the HD if you are running only a 128 GB drive.
I really hope so! It is sad though that your post is the first mention of the Mini in this entire thread. Interest simply isn't what it was for this machine. This is why I'm expecting a major overhaul.
Skimping on RAM is bad, everybody knows that. However you seem to be awfully dismissive of the importance of A suitably sized SSD. Generally if people spend the extra $800 on that 1TB SSD they have a good reason to do so. It is surprising how much space some apps take up these days. Even more surprising at times is the number and size of the intermediate and temporary files that software generates these days.Obviously usage dictates to an extent how SSD space will...
You can't be serious! 256GB these days is a minimal hard disk/SSD size. That with ITunes on a separate disk. It is extremely short sighted for anyone to consider the purchase of a machine with only 128 GB of storage. You can easily run out of room with a disk of that size.
With the A8 reveal you have to wonder just how far away an ARM based Mac is. If they can double the clock rate and add two more CPU cores I could see a very very nice low cost laptop being powered by these SoC.
It isn't so much a lie as it is reacting to the reality that all it takes is somebody getting a bug up their ass and wanting to cause Apple trouble. It could be some clerk at the FTC, a VP at PayPal or somebody's grandma. Once someone in the federal government sees an opportunity to take a complaint and run with it to advance their pay grade, Apple could have significant pressure to open up the system. This if they don't demonstrate the intention to open up the...
I have to agree with your statements and this is why I think they are careful to say for a year. However privicacy might not be the right word to use here, it could rather be an issue of security. I can see Apple denying access to Pay Pal and Google if they see a security problem with their approaches.The reality is this, a poorly written or conceived app is a huge threat for Apple and the consumers perception that Apple is keeping them secure. This is probably the...
