Code:They may be able to trim weight elsewhere. But again I believe they have some freedom here with their customer base to keep the 15(16)" MBP as their power users laptop. A bit heavier (fractions of a pound) might irritate the prestige buyers but that is a small portion of Apples market, the MBP is still a portable performance workstation.
Wherever they can find the room.Actually that might not be a bad idea.Apple keeps screwing up that is why.So? I mean really I sit here with an iPad and a MBP which are used in dramatically different ways. A single port machine would never work as a replacement for my laptop usage. Furthermore the port on the iPad is actively locked down, even if I wanted too the iPad could never work for me like the Mac does. Well never in the sense that Apple doesn't change their...
Most likely they would need to bump up the size of the machine slightly but edge to edge technology would minimize the expansion considerably. The laptop would be much smaller than the old 17" though. One could just take a tape measure to a current machine, laid across the current diagonal, to see what is possible.I don't think most common MBP users would be worried about slight changes in size as these machines aren't adopted by people interested in ultra...
Here is Intels release: http://blogs.intel.com/technology/2015/08/bringing-intel-xeon-to-notebook-pcs/. There is always the possibility that they will debut technology at hot chips www.hotchips.org. The ISSCC is at the end of January 2016, this is another place to get your self up to date technology wise. Or Intel could have their own dog and pony show. It is hard to tell for certain but the fact that they sort of announced the chip kinda indicates something...
That is hardly a big enough audience to sustain a product. Given that I still see many applications for such hardware outside of content creation.Well I don't know about that. However Intel does have something like 30 different custom Xeon chips that it is making for various users. Could Apple have requested such a chip - possible but I'd suggest that the market is much wider than the Apple clique.If it was Apple the question then becomes what hardware will it go...
It is hardly free on mobile. In fact they average user big time.Yep, so what is your point. By the way they could consider reasonable ad strategies that don't burden the user.Some will, but that isn't my problem.
Sure they are. It a nut shell that has what has inspired this reaction to them.It isn't so much the number but rather the damage they do to your system and the bandwidth they use.Yes exactly! Some jobs simply aren't socially acceptable. Earlier I likened the ad industry to the prostitution industry and frankly the ad industry does more damage to society than the prostitution industry.
I've been using UBlock. It has been good so far but I've only have used it for only six months so far.
It is the web sites without "product" that need the income from ads. This very site is a good example and frankly a good example of not going overboard with ads.I will be using ad blocking the moment it is ready but I won't be blocking sites that I frequent if the ads remain reasonable. In the end places like Appleinsider need income to stay on the air so to speak.
This is a huge factor in my hate of ads. Further as machine performance goes up ads just become more complex and use up that performance. If people don't believe this I urge them to try an ad blocker because the performance impact can be dramatic even on a new computer.The other thing I don't like is bandwidth usage which is dramatic. This take money right out of my pocket. Often ads are several times the content in download costs.Yep! I may premit ads on...
