I'd like to buy one of those machines for the right price.    The prices... for the old models are a JOKE. You are right for 5 year old hardware chassis that should be $999 or less, maybe 899. for 15 MBp barebones spec. I'll gut my current MPB RAM and SSD and put into new machine. My old 2010 is getting creaky. Also has that gfx card problem. Maybe I'll send it in to Apple... It's only intermittent though but sometimes causes kernal panic.    Hm. Just like always,...
Oh how I would love to buy an Apple "Surface". But I get it. They want to sell you 3 devices not one. Tablet, laptop, desktop. Otherwise... they'd have a Apple tablet running OS X and iOS w/ detachable keyboard that also had a docking station. That would be great. It will never happen. Because AAPL no like. I miss the Duo. I like Surface. I like love my Galaxy Note. I like the design of the Moto 360 that came out a year or two ago. Apple, come on.
melgross thank for the very informative posts. I was vaguely aware of TRIM issues on certain firmwares. Your detailed writeup is enough for me to just say meh and not enable. I've had a Crucial m4 for years on my 2010 on snow leopard. Fast. Never degraded. I always leave at least 10 gigs free though.  I'm ready to jump on El Cap!!!!!! So excited for it. Dark Theme, yum.  And Snappiness™. 
had to come back from the beyond here to comment.   I would have posted similar to you, it is quite logical, and I understand your conceptual argument that if not much changed, why are there bugs.  But now as a developer, I realize, anytime you change stuff, it could cause a bug in something else, cause a regression bug, etc.   Touching the smallest thing can cause a noticeable or fatal bug sometimes. That's why testing is so important. And so underrated in many a place....
I hate touchscreens. Haaate. I have a Note 3 because buttons. I wish it had a slider keyboard. If I had an iPhone this news would make me froth at the mouth.
like ya'll have said it's these kind of things that make Apple. Not mhz. So is this basically like a Galaxy Note in a trackpad, with the addition of giving tactile feedback? If so that'd be awesome. Inkwell? Does it do handwriting recognition perhaps? Sensitive like the Note?  I might have to just look at these units. Was beginning to think this would be another year of a whole lot of nothing on the laptop front.   InteliusQ...  EXACTLY.  That sounds awesome! I want one....
re: Flash. It was an awesome IDE.  coding HTML5 is a pain in the ass and inferior in every single way. Developers that know, know.  I agree, it was amateur developers along with a bad Mac implementation, that killed Flash. Those two things are what lead Steve to dislike Flash and therefore not support it.   I duno the deal with this Apple Watch though. It looks like a cheesy Android watch.  Moto 360 is circular. It is awesome. It looks like what I thought Apple Watch...
pff I am not trolling I am a common use case. Past a certain point pixels do not matter to a lot of users. Yes as wizard pointed out a while back, even when you can't "see" the difference it is "easier" on the yes.  And I actually did notice that. It an improvement that it is welcome. But at first, retina added a massive price increase. It was painful. And I certainly think DPI on laptops with retina has maxxed out. Any more for quite some time would be a frivolous waste...
from my experience ZERO has changed about Apple notebooks in over 5 years. They lost optical. Good. Retina:  golf clap.  And where is it in Air.  OS X is just finally getting good again.  My MBP with Snow Leopard honestly looks better than their new laptops, for my use pattern.  I will not be pleased if I spend full price on what they are currently offering. Let's see more classic Apple revolution not evolution.  Touchscreen. Real voice and AI like Google Now.  And fanless...
