That is because Intels chips have different cutoffs as far as the amount of RAM supported by the chip set. Most of the mobile line only allows for 16 GB at this moment in time. For many users that isn't a big limitation today and probably won't be for the next couple of years. More importantly we are at a major transition point in the industry and frankly by 2016 today hardware will look rather old and outmoded due to the advent of high performance memories, Skylake...
I'm not sure if I can help here but the entry level machine is very very important in my mind. This especially if you are trying to place iMacs in business where not everyone needs a high performance computer. Also high integration SoC technology means that you don't have to forego performance on an entry level machine.Think about what a modern entry level SoC needs to offer to produce a machine that is suitable for an entry level machine these days. In Apples case...
Intel has always made a range of desktop processors. The interesting thing here is that a SkyLake edition ought to give the IMac a significant boost in CPU capability along with the integrated graphics boost. It should make for a very interesting iMac upgrade.As it is you can't be sure which processor Apple will choose. The chips coming form Intel are more integrated every year which means that a 35 watt chip might significantly lower the over all power used in a...
It seems like this happens a couple of times a year. In many places the dear population is rather high due to no natural predators and congestion making the areas unsuitable for hunting.As for the custodian I'm hoping he had enough meat there to make a few pounds of venison sausage, steak and roasts. If you find somebody that can cook it right venison is really tasty.
I have to agree with this. One important feature here is that Jobs was a showman more than anything. It was his ability to put on a show and sell products and concepts that really pulled Apple out of some very tough times. His keynotes inspired confidence in the critical third party developers and just as much inspired confidence in the user base. I'd go so far as to say that if it wasn't for Jobs keynotes I don't think Apple would have recovered in the way it did...
After reading this thread I really have to wonder if anybody here is actually a capable tech oriented person. You should be able to identify which side is up with 100% reliability on a USB connector. The standard specifies where the USB icon is to be stamped on the connector housing. Even if that isn't there you can identify by looking at the metal housing.Honestly I'm only half way through this thread and frankly it is the biggest bunch of bull crap I've read in a...
Yep! For me it is the machines biggest turn off Performance is also an issue but rev 2 will deal with that.
Just did that 1.5 GB. It took all night with the last time i looked the Mac indicating 9 hoursDo realize though that once USB is significantly faster than hard disks it won't matter
Ah yes the jams! Type writer repair was a decent occupation as the machines required maintenance which many users where not prepared to do.The IBM Selectrics was as much a part of IBMs success in business as was its computers. Those typewriters where everywhere and had a big impact on the typewriter industry. I would liken them to the iPhone of the typewriter industry.Actually it is history. I get involved (travel to) in mechanical modeling and small engines...
Nope. I thought about that long and hard too, trying to project my expect usage into the next five years. It is obvious that 4 GB wouldn't be enough RAM, however 8GB should get me by. There is also the reality that in a couple of years I would expect computer systems to have advanced significantly to the point I might want an upgrade.The problem is Intel has put the CPU on the back burner while bringing its GPUs up to speed. Nothing wrong with that as it allows me...
