I'm actually impressed with how well iOS 7 runs on my iPad 3. It runs so well I'm trying to hold out until Apple revs the machines with a RAM and Flash increase.The price difference isn't that huge so it isn't a difficult buy. Beyond that the walled garden does away with many of the problems with Android.I have nothing against people that use other platforms. However when they demonstrate a disconnect from reality the way Android users do at times I really have to...
Even Rolls Royce has a service department! Think about that for a minute. 😜😜The idea that you can make things by the millions and not have issues just doesn't fly with reality. I work in manufacturing and see issues crop up on production lines all of a sudden that take engineers days to figure out what went wrong with a perfectly fine process. In this case it is often an issue of chemistry and not electronics.If you sit back and think about it, LCD screens are...
I never really have bought into that idea. Apple is simply focused on quality systems which to an extent costs money, but quality isn't as expensive as some people think. Apples laptops are expensive in part due to using Intels top of the line chips, now Apple doesn't pay retail and likely gets the best wholesale price going but those Intel chips are a significant portion of the cost of Apples laptops.This is also baloney. At least in my case I went Apple because it...
Apple needs to address the lower cost segment of the market. A $600 laptop from Apple does not confuse the market due the wide price disparity. Beyond that I don't see Apple positioning a "regular" Mac laptop in this slot, I'd suspect some sort of hybrid between a Mac and a tablet.Your agreement has some validity but on the other hand Apple gives up considerable potential due to limited breadth of its Mac line up. Some sales simply aren't possible because Apple...
Huh?
It does look like Apple is slowing down Mac development. As for an $800 Mac Book it is really up to Intel to price a chip set that can power such a machine reasonably. Make no mistake Intel is under huge pressure to hit better price points for its processors. Even if Intel did debut a more price sensitive chip set I'm not convinced that Apple is that concerned about its laptops anymore.This is true but it is often very difficult to explain to people that are more...
Yes it is and likely is due to thermal issues. This is especially frustrating because price wise the iMac is of debatable value in its current form. Then again I'm really hoping for a Mini that implements an SSD. However my reasoning for the Mini is more about opening up a bit more thermal capacity for better GPU performance.
Many early SSD's where brought to market way to early. I've not seen mention of any of Apples implementations having an issue. Considering how people whine about every little glitch in their machines I have to think that Apples chosen SSD's are relatively trouble free.I agree 100% with this! I've owned computers since I was a teenager many years ago and the majority of the problems over the years have been storage related. Considering that drive replacement is...
I don't know why this keeps getting repeated but I don't know of any soldered in SSD's in Apples machines. RAM yes but that is a different situation, eventually all high performance RAM arrays will be soldered in. DDR4 demands soldered in RAM in its highest performance versions for example.On Apples machines that you can get access to; the blade SSD's slide into a socket. I'd make the suggestion that they are easier to replace.We maybe on an iMac. However it is...
One thing I wish people would do when posting this crap about Sanddisk drives is to actually say what the believe the problem is. Because to be honest I've heard nothing about premature failures in any of the Macs.See in the forums or actual hardware out in the field? If it is in the forums you need to be careful about the same old birds parroting a common refrain. I'm not trying to be dismissive here, rather I'm just indicating that complaints in forums like these...
