I suspect this is one thing that people don't grasp, the way many people use the Mac Book Pro you really need wired charging.This is so true. However I must say my 13" MBP is really impressing me with its ability to run well for a long time on battery power.I guess this is possible, after all Apple has hired a number of AMD engineers but I imagined these people working strictly on processors for iOS devices. Beyond that the Imagination derived processors really don't...
You do realize that WWDC is in June right? It wouldn't be the first time something was announced at WWDC with shipping to come in two weeks.If at all possible this is true, SkyLake should be wonderful. However I don't have any hope for wireless charging in a performance laptop like the 15" MBP. In fact wireless charging doesn't really fit into common usage profiles for a laptop like this.On the other hand I just brought a 13" Broadwell based laptop and must say I...
I wouldn't be surprised to find that Apple has worked something out with Intel that will allow them to announce early. For that matter Intel and Apple might jointly announce SkyLake shipping. Remember WWDC is only about two weeks for July and the expected SkyLake debut. Beyond that this wouldn't be the first time that WWDC and Intel announcements where very close on the calendar.The primary reason I think Apple will go SkyLake is the performance gain that is suppose to...
I see a world that is a bit different in that software packages will continue to leverage the GPUs to a greater extent than ever before. I really don't see the need for a discreet GPU going away anytime soon. GPUs benefit from process shrinks just like CPUs which has lead to lower power (watts) and increased performance. Also AMD has gone all in with the HSA architecture and that has significant potential to expand GPU use.We might eventually get to the point where...
You might get something like this. The reasoning is pretty simple, to set the machine apart performance wise. I could see the two SSD's RAID'ed together to increase transfer rates. If not RAID at least provide for the extra storage capacity.
USB and Thunderbolt solve different problems. If anything we will see a more advanced version of TB.
Anybody that has ever been involved in a product ramp up knows that there are all sorts of glitches to deal with. In this case Apple has plenty of new tech to deal with from the ultra small PCB to the taptic engine. Possibly having an issue with any of those isn't a big deal, The big deal comes from how you rise to the challenges.
It isn't just low light performance that might suffer. Too benefit from those pixels small size you need higher optical quality. That is if the lens can't focus parts of the image down to pixel sized dimensions the pixels can end up wasted.As for the low light performance I say might above because there is so much research going into sensors these days that you really can't say for sure how sensitive the image detector will be on this years camera. At this moment in...
Code:I think you misunderstand me, it doesn't matter if the iMac is a good machine; the problem is that it isn't a machine suitable for many users. The fact of the matter is that desktops aren't used like iPads or even laptops. Sometimes the intended usage dictates the physical design of the desktop.It only does well against the Mac Pro in single threaded or lightly multi threaded work loads. It really makes no sense to eve compare the two platforms because as...
Locally there are a number of independent hobby shops that seem to be successful. I don't know the owners but the places haven't been shuttered yet. That is a positive because the Obama ecomomy has closed up more than a few businesses here.It is sort of like Music stores oriented to selling instruments. You really can't do that online well.
