Good point. Lemon Bon Bon.
Nor should Apple make junk. I don't think anyone is seriously suggesting they do a 180 degree and do that. However. Is the iPod Touch 'junk?' It's made of premium materials. Yet, Apple makes a decent margin on it presumingly. Take a £250 iPod Touch...and add a phone chipset. Does that really equate to the £215 price difference between the Alu iPod Touch and the 'plastic' iPhone c? There was all the talk about how Apple couldn't do a cheaper phone. it's...
 I hear what you say. But Apple's products really speak for themselves.  (As demonstrated by the Mac Pro preview ad'.  Very different in tone from the iOS stuff.)  And good if the adverts now reflect this.   Coupled with an Apple store...where people can get a hold of that 'clear message' and try one first hand? Open and shut case. Lemon Bon Bon.
Clever advert. One of their best in recent times. Software and Hardware in unison. That's what Apple is all about. Lemon Bon Bon.
If Intel is only improving mainstream cpu performance by 10% each year now...   ...and the A7 chip doubles next year...and the year after that...(same for the gpu performance...)   How long could it be before we envision a time Apple can cut Intel loose..?   Either Arm goes into the Mac at some future point?  Or we have an Apple II - Mac - iOS succession?   Not in the immediate future.   But that A7 is some chip.  Make one helluva ATV console/media hub.  (When...
"The iPhone 5S is, in some measures, computationally superior to the top-of-the-line MacBook Pro from just five years ago. In your fucking pocket."   No big boxes at all. ;)  But, ironically, it's the mother of all 'boxes...'   Lemon Bon Bon.
 A decent 'ramble.' The A7 is one hell of a chip.  With one helluva GPU 'Rogue.'   It wasn't so long ago we had Core Duos!  My last iMac was a Core Duo!   The 2008 top end model (thinks back...I think...) Rogue is offering PS3 type GPU performance, Antialiased...(!)  Surely has to be eclipsing the Mini's GPU performance from a few years ago? Or as Gruber puts it... The iPhone 5S is, in some measures, computationally superior to the top-of-the-line MacBook Pro from just...
4k very expensive. No kidding. I don't expect Apple doing us any favours on price even if they get them to market. Still, I look at the retina in the iPad and the Macbook Pros and think, '...what's the hold up?' We're overdue a boost in desktop displays. It's been ages since we've seen much in the way of advances. The top end res' on my iMac and hi def in general is pretty mainstream now. Heck. Retina is mainstream now. Be nice to see a big 32 inch 4k monitor at a...
8 gigs?  It's dirt cheap to buy now.   Apple and it's 'charge you £400+ for some extra ram policies.   Lemon Bon Bon.
256 gig SSDs going for £120-ish  and 512 SSDs going for £250-ish.   No reason Apple can't put them in their machines as standard on their desktops (they charge enough.)   I have a 1TB fusion drive in my iMac which I payed through the nose for.  I'd rather had a 256 gig SSD for OS and programs and used an external platter for data.   Lemon Bon Bon.
