Intel is launching some Skylake chips in August:They already demoed Skylake ultraportables at their last event fully working. They just need to start mass production if they haven't already. Manufacturers are planning hardware launches around this timeframe:http://www.fudzilla.com/news/processors/37772-asustek-waxes-lyrical-on-skylake"In July, we will see the official transition to Windows 10. In August, Skylake will come into the market, so there are two different...
The 15" MBP doesn't ship in large quantities. The entire laptop line is about 4m units per quarter and more than half are Airs and entry MBPs. Their Mac ASP is $1258. In a best-case for the 15", say every low-end model sold was the $899 Air and every 15" was the entry $1999, to hit an average of $1258, the split would be such that the Air sold 2.06x more units than the 15" MBP so the 15" can only sell at most 33% of all the laptops, which is 1.3m units. It would in fact be...
Price isn't an issue to people where storage capacity isn't an issue.1TB 13" cMBP = $11491TB 13" rMBP = $2299If Intel comes out with $0.25/GB SSD then 1TB = $250 total so an upgrade from a 128GB entry rMBP would be much less. Apple would likely charge extra on top. It could be:13" entry 128GB = $119913" 256GB = $129913" 512GB = $1499 and 1TB BTO $1699It's still $550 more than the cMBP but a lot more justifiable than $1150 more.Apple is charging about $0.97/GB for SSDs just...
Intel is planning to introduce disruptive pricing with their SSDs later this year. If they pull it off and hit say $0.25/GB for enterprise-class SSD, I expect Apple can drop the price of all their laptops as well as move away from Samsung SSDs. Hopefully they won't solder them in just yet like with the MB. The 13" could only go to $1199 but it's enough to remove the $1099 13". The 12" Macbook should drop to $1199 too. The old model is able to hit the lower price due to not...
Not a huge mistake if Apple goes with Broadwell. The recent 13" MBP with Broadwell is not that much different from the last one. The biggest change was the Force Touch trackpad. It devalues your one sooner but Broadwell isn't a must-have upgrade.
The Retina MBP has close to 100% sRGB:https://cdtobie.wordpress.com/2012/06/18/color-gamut-of-retina-display-macbook-pro/It's around 70% for Adobe 1998 profile. The iPad is still better but only by a small amount.They used to have a dedicated GPU in the entry model and switched it out for Iris Pro. The entry price for a dedicated GPU in any of their laptops is now $2499. There are performance tests between the 750M and Iris Pro...
The image isn't a thumbnail, I embedded it below. It mentions the mobile quad names for Broadwell.
They haven't been released yet but they should be these ones:http://s8.postimg.org/4ui02ccit/New5th_Gen_Quads.jpgIntel usually launches chips at Computex on June 2nd:http://wccftech.com/intel-14nm-broadwell-core-i7-5775c-core-i5-5675c-officially-launching-2nd-june-benchmarks-revealed/AMD doesn't have anything worthwhile in mobile, they focus on APUs there. The 70-80W Radeon R9 M280X has the same performance as the 850M/950M, which are 40-50W, if you look at the list on the...
