That's the exception though. When you have machines shipping by default with HDDs, it becomes a crutch that people lean on because it's there. You also shouldn't need 1TB external, just the difference between the internal and external. You might for example pick up the $1199 13" Air with 256GB and then add a $235 480GB SSD with a $15 enclosure, $1449 total, that's still $300 more than the 1TB HDD MBP with less storage but the drive performance and reliability is much...
This is completely wrong and you know it is because you've commented on Amazon's and Tesla's stock. If the stock price was tied to earnings, those stocks would be nowhere near where they are. The values are speculative. Apple is valued at $588b, where is that money? It doesn't exist, it's just what traders think Apple's worth and it can change tomorrow.
It's not elitist, it's tough love. Consumers don't know what's good for them because for the most part they don't understand enough about technology and they're not expected to. You can tell a consumer that a solid state drive is physically more durable, 10x faster, much better random read/writes, fewer beachballs and so on but they will focus on the price tag. Unless Apple takes the HDD out and sells SSDs as standard, they're not going to know the difference because they...
The kind of company that made a $12.6b loss in 2012 and currently makes about 1/10th Apple's net income. I don't know why Apple's their target though. Apple has decent marketshare at the high-end workstation level but Dell is a bigger competitor, especially when you consider server hardware. Maybe they're afraid the market will try and make them follow Apple's design route and they know they can't. Remember when Apple's mobile competitors went on about physical keyboards,...
Often when it comes to hardware problems, the people with the problems concentrate in one area online to complain. Apple sells over 1 million laptops every month so if you read even 100 reports of problems with the displays, you'd never know how widespread it was. I wouldn't worry about getting a bad machine, if you happen to be one with a defect, Apple will replace it for you. The new models are out now so 16GB RAM is in the entry model and they've dropped the prices on...
You can use Migration Assistant in your /Applications/Utilities folder. It helps if you haven't created an account on the 27" with the same name as the old one as it will try to move the old account over. You'd connect the two machine with a suitable cable as described here:http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4413Newer versions of the OS are supposed to find the right driver online as soon as you connect the printer. If that doesn't work, try installing the drivers for the...

I wouldn't recommend 128GB but it depends on what you use Windows for. If it's for gaming, I'd suggest 70GB minimum now because modern games are maxing out at just under 50GB and a bare Windows OS uses up 15GB. If it's just for average software, you'd probably get away with 50GB.Apple also has a refurb part to their store that has better prices:http://store.apple.com/au/browse/home/specialdeals/macIf you were looking at the A$1599 model, you can get one with 512GB for...
Buybacks are meant to be good for shareholders but your 'savings' and 'gains' are still based on a volatile stock price that is determined by traders. If traders next year decide they are bored with what Apple's doing, they can lower the price as they see fit and wipe out all of these gains. This is why it's not a good plan to trade all of Apple's assets for this volatile valuation (unless the assets are invested in something more volatile of course but they make a point...
They top out at 1TB just now. Samsung recently brought out an SSD drive using 3D NAND (special glasses not required):http://www.extremetech.com/computing/185671-samsungs-850-pro-is-the-first-consumer-ssd-to-use-3d-nandhttp://www.samsung.com/global/business/semiconductor/minisite/Greenmemory/news-event/in-the-news/detail?contentsSeq=13227&contsClassCd=GApple uses Samsung's NAND in the Mac Pro. Samsung also has SSDs that go up to 3GB/s. The 3D NAND hasn't arrived at a lower...
