Isn't amazing how narrow a view some have of the world? It is laughable that some use running FCP as the litmus test for a machine professional capability.
Unfortunately I think they will quickly hit their limits as to what is technically possible in the Air machines. The last possible step here is a passively cooled design where the case of the machine is also the heat sink. That would likely require sub 20 nm technology and a few compromises. In any event if they get much thinner structural issues become a big problem when creating a product with really thin parts. No one wants a machine made out of aluminum...
The point is the cost delta wouldn't be any different than what we see in the iPad. As an option that is, built in the basic configuration as a standard feature it would cost even less to implement.I don't understand why you have an issue with a company charging more for something people see as valuable. It is exactly what business is all about. If you have been following retina technology you would notice that it literally took Sharp years to deliver its current...
I have to agree, the nMP is a huge step forward in workstation design. I actually think Apple will have issues keeping up. I also wouldn't be surprised to see a mid 2014 refresh that offers up more flash storage and other possible improvements.As to those "pros", there are still people whining about their ability to run software for their original 68000 based Mac. This machine is a very shrewder move for Apple.
It would be very useful in a convertible.There is a lot of hate in the forums with respect to convertibles but there are also infinite ways in which Apple could realize a decent solution. Remember most convertibles have failed for the same reason tablets did before Apple delivered iPad. It is all about implementation.
I see it as a winning platform. It is certainly about the future not the past.Overbuilt probably isn't the right word. In the high end model the machine runs right at its capacity limit.This machine is probably just a start. Depending upon where they go in the next couple of years the machine could end up rather radical!!!!
That is the first time I've seen that video. An interesting way to get a point across. My first thought was that must have cost a lot to build.
I don't think you read that right.
How long was the Mac Pro a big box? Part of the reason the Mini has stayed around so long in two basic forms is that Apple never really had the resources to dedicate to it. Frankly it looks like Mac Hardware is finally getting some attention so I don't see the idea of a New Mini as an impossibility. By new I mean a new box and a break from the traditional design.A break from traditional design would be similar to the change from Mac Book to MacBook AIR. That is new...
The Internet of things is certainly overblown. This coming from a guy that like to work on embedded things.Really who wears a watch these days? I just don't see this as a mass appeal device. The iPhone is useful to the entire population not just the nerds. For the most part I've never worn a watch, there is really no good reason to do so today.The part about Steve Jobs is baloney. If you read the history of the company you will realize that in many cases...
