CRTs generate black by turning off the electron gun so they'll always have higher ratios than LCDs illuminated by a backlight. OLED on the other hand turns pixels off so that'll give you CRT-like quality:http://www.trustedreviews.com/opinions/trusted-reviews-visits-sony-in-japan_Page-2"LCD can only get down to 0.1 candelas of brightness, and CRT technology can only get down to 0.01, OLED can get right down to 0.0001 - which is basically as black as black can get in display...
Great, thanks for sharing this. Does it run at 60Hz on the rMBP and is it smooth enough at scrolling, UI animations etc?On the subject of the Echo Express, a lot of the PCIe boxes are reviewed as having noisy fans and they are all expensive. Have you considered perhaps using larger, slower fans, maybe mounted between cards rotating length-wise like a water-mill or liquid-cooling that is sealed away from the cards? Also, is the price of those just down to the small demand...
At the top-end, you get a 63% faster CPU so a 1 hour render would now take 37 minutes. The GPU on the top-end model is about 25-50% faster than the 770M for games but the Cinebench OpenGL scores don't differ much:http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-GTX-770M.88995.0.htmlhttp://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-GTX-780M.88993.0.htmlThe 775M is faster than the 700M so you might not get much benefit from the more expensive 780M GPU. For a $1000 upgrade after 3...
It could be a sign it'll be delayed and people can still buy the current Thunderbolt display for the Mac Pro. I don't see Apple going back to $3000+ displays, the market is just too small for it. Dell is bringing their sub-$1000 28" out early next year - if it's just a TN panel, I'm not sure what market it's aimed at but if it's MVA rather than IPS or IGZO, it'll still be pretty competitive.
The i5 and i7 can be compared here:http://browser.primatelabs.com/mac-benchmarksThe new iMac is 11,111 for multi-core 64-bit, your old one is 8994 so around 24% faster. This means if you waited for 1 hour on the old one, you'd wait 1/1.24 = 48 minutes on the new one, saving 12 minutes. There was a time when CPUs improved roughly 50% every year but not in recent years. A fair comparison would be the top-end i7, which scores 14,705 so 63% improvement for the same price in 3...
It's the Airport Extreme. Just a size reference for the display. You'd think they'd put a Mac Pro next to it but I guess they wanted something that was shipping that people might own to be able to tell how big it was. The current mini isn't a very good comparison as it's so small. This way you can see it's just over twice the height of the Airport. It helps when you try to fit it into a tight desk space.
I don't think it has anything to do with backbone. I think it has more to do with cash. Back in 2009, they had $34b in cash, which would have seemed like a reasonable reserve to maintain for growth opportunities and exclusive purchases/buyouts. In 2010, it grew to $51b, then when Steve died in 2011, it was $82b. At this point, it became clear that they were amassing cash at a far higher rate than they could spend so it was only after Steve that there was any incentive for...
Ask your 4G provider if you can tether.
The breakdown of the $61.2b lists cost of sales at $46b, which is just shipping, packaging and acquiring products for sale (equivalent to Apple's build costs). Fulfillment is $6.4b, which is payment processing fees and some of this is expansion of fulfillment capacity. $2.4b is marketing. $4.5b is their AWS web services, cloud computing costs. The following site says they're investing $13.9b over a number of years in...
You can use tethering if the provider allows it, just make sure your 4G plan doesn't have a small data cap.
