I would never keep a woman from her beauty rest. I actually fell a sleep last night before writing this, old age setting in.
Wow!Not sure I want to quote this, looks like somebody has a future writing the replacement for War and Peace.Work hardware doesn't count.It isn't like I will ever need a Swiss bank account.Why would he thing that. Besides most house wives are surfing for porn. After all how much can one actually buy on line.Sweetness around here comes with a handle called Relic.So now we are building custom furniture around the computer hardware.You know a report on those new iPads...
I just had a bit of a laugh here because in my entry lifetime I've personally owned one (1) laptop. That is it. I have had two IPads so far though. Apple certainly got a few features right in iPad as it is a lot more convienent for travel, web surfing and the like.So this brings up the question just how many laptops can you realistically keep in play at anyone time? That is how many get used as opposed to sitting on a shelf somewhere.
You know being an old guy I use to think that before I got my iPad 3. Let me tell you from experience retina screens are easier on the eyes even if at times you have to wear glasses. I think it is the result of your eyes not trying to focus in on something that is always blurry.The Mac Book Air could be seen as reasonably priced. In fact I have a hard time even finding anything that is actually cheaper and also in the same performance class.
Well you have a point there. However with this release it just looks a bit awkward, the high end machine does not significantly improve the CPU/GPU over the midrange model. I believe that is due to Intel just not having the solution Apple wanted.Let's face it a lot of Mini users could have easily justified a quad core. I mean with sound technical reasoning, not some of the techno lust we see here. On the flip side there are way to many that would chase after a...
Well yeah but they can't even get Broadwell out.
I'm not talking about specific numbers here. Rather I see the opportunity to get the next big boost in performance out of the Air by keeping it a 15 watt or so machine. The jump to 5 watts and a potential loss of performance just doesn't appeal to me. Honestly with Haswell the Airs just got interesting to me. A fanless Air that doesn't move performance forward would be a significant mistake in my mind.Maybe in another product but like I said the Airs have just become...
While this happens all the time in industry something just doesn't add up here. You don't build out a massive factory until the process is proven in some manner.It isn't really that one sided of a contract. It is the norm to lock your suppliers in with material penaltiesThe funny thing here is this, if the process doesn't work then what value do the furnaces have. GT wants to sell this stuff to repay Apple but who would buy the machines if they don't work. If the...
Somebody was busy at the keyboard.Honestly I'm more interested in a higher performance Air rather than a lower power unit. In other words I'd rather see Apple stay in the 12 - 15 watt range and deliver the extra performance.A more rational line up would be nice. I still like the idea of 12, 14 & 16" sized machines. Sadly if they go to the low wattage stuff in the Airs that will mean we will likely need a 14" MBP for those of us looking for better performance. ...
