Intel has an event on August 18th, they usually announce Xeon models at these:http://forwardthinking.pcmag.com/none/327496-xeon-d-aims-at-microservers-but-arm-promises-competitionThey might not launch them but they can demo them and give details on availability.
Aren't you just going to save about 16% ($80 or so) doing that? Seems like a lot of hassle to save a small amount of money. Refurbs come in a brown box. If they bring out a model you really want to upgrade to in September, you'd just sell the one you have in 4 months.
Not to build profiles to improve their ad business. Google's ad-targeting was off by default in education but the profiles can still be useful and who's auditing what they're doing? Apple has no incentive to monetize personal data, it's not part of their business model. They would setup Pay differently if it was.I've never been all that concerned about ad-tracking but profiles clearly have some value when you see Google's earnings and not everyone likes being monetized...
Some of the M300 will be the Strato XT. The following site lists the M380X as Strato XT but M37xx as Cape Verde:http://videocardz.com/amd/radeon-rx-m300The M280X is 70-80W so more suitable for the likes of an iMac. The score for the Strato XT was way too high for a chip that could go in a laptop:https://gfxbench.com/device.jsp?benchmark=gfx31&did=23640094That's almost 3x higher than the 70-80W M280X:https://gfxbench.com/device.jsp?benchmark=gfx31&did=23638977That's closer...
... after they were sued and made to stop:http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2014/may/01/google-stops-scanning-student-emails-california-lawsuitAdvertising is the core of their business though and makes up 90% of their revenue and over 90% of their profit. Around 5% revenue is from Google Play and the rest hardware and services. The hardware side for them is very low margin if any. As a publicly traded company such low margin hardware can only be justified by tying it...
The top-end MBP has two GPUs (Iris Pro and 750M) but they only allow using one at a time. It would cause too much heat output and power draw and there's not much room in the 15" for another dedicated one. There are laptops with dual GPUs and they are getting thinner. There's one here that is just 25% thicker than the rMBP:http://www.aorus.com/x7.aspx (check the marketing video)http://www.aorus.com/x7pro.aspxbut there's too many...
The headphone jack is a mic input but you might need a certain kind of mic:http://www.cnet.com/how-to/record-through-your-macbooks-headphone-jack/If you look at system prefs > sound > input, there should be a way to switch from the standard mic to an external either with a dropdown or with a line-in option.Another route you can go is...
The one with the shirt was on Etsy but doesn't seem to be there any more:https://www.pinterest.com/pin/569142471630294211/https://www.etsy.com/listing/157487845/clark-kent-superman-macbook-vinyl-decalThere's one that's close to it on eBay from Bulgaria but it's missing the outline round the shield:http://www.ebay.com/itm/1-pc-Macbook-air-13-Decal-Superman-Sticker-Vinyl-Die-cut-/321762746800The flying one is available...
There's not enough space to put more than 16GB in just now. With DDR4, they can double it in the same physical space. I'm hoping Skylake will use DDR4 and have an option up to at least 24GB and allow the integrated GPU to use 2-4GB.
There's a few tests here:http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1884846http://www.reddit.com/r/apple/comments/36u07m/retina_macbook_pro_2015_15_gpu_benchmark/http://www.anandtech.com/show/9276/2015-15inch-retina-macbook-pros-dgpu-r9-m370x-is-cape-verdeFor computation, it's higher than the 750M - AMD supports OpenCL better so some tests come out a lot better. It's not double in the graphics performance tests. If you look at Cinebench OpenGL, it's 60FPS vs 52 on the...
