I'd be the first to Support Apple doing better at the various pice points it hits. However that pertains to overall hardware value for the price.However to play devils advocate here, how many of Apples monitors are actually being sold for the types of professional uses where a highly calibrated display is used? I pick up my iPad and continue to be amazed at its display quality that apparently does get calibrated somewhat at the factory. However I would never go so...
I'm not so worried about farming out stuff but rather worry about the countries we actually farm this production out too. It is pretty obvious that China has an addenda that isn't in our best interests. Considering the globe is pretty big finding alternative production centers ought to be very high on Apples Apples list of things to do.As for cheap crap and the American reluctance to buy higher on the cost scale. That isn't a issue that will go away anytime soon,...
I have to wonder if the rumored 13" iPad will get an A7X or other wise enhanced processor. Cores should not be a measure of performance but in Androids case the operating system and SDK isn't smart enough to leverage them anyways. IOS on the other hand could easily leverage four cores or an enhanced GPU.Even in an IPAD Pro though I really think the need is for more RAM and SSD. With enough RAM an iPad Pro could easily handle more advanced apps. You know apps pros...
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.
