The first Mac I purchased cost $2495.     It only had a few apps that ran correctly on it.  MacWrite and MacPaint.     The screen was not exactly "retina" scale.  More like "dot matrix.   And that Mac only came with 128K of memory.  And no hard drive.   Do I think it was worth it?   Sure.  
I saw the unboxings, and the tear downs of a whole MBPR, and now the tear downs of the MBPR display.     What I really want to see is a tear down of the the boxes the MBPR comes in...    What kind of paper and cardboard is Apple using?   Is it a proprietary box design? How do they fold the corners?   Did they copy the design from Android?   Did they use a special glue?   Did Steve work on the box designs for the new MBPR on his deathbed?   How many...
Tim got upset after he got some sub-standard french fries at the Foxconn cafeteria.
Steve had to be a Obama supporter, because his salary was only $1 per year.   Remember in any political campaign, this is what you get:   A douche bag vs a turd sandwich.  
Steve's advice:     "Outsource as much of your campaign to Foxconn and then make some warm & fuzzy commercials with Samuel L Jackson and that Zoe chick. Spend a lot of money integrating iwith Facebook. And wear a black turtleneck when you campaign"
    LMAO.   Wi-fi is hard to find?  What national park do you live in?     A 63 ft Ethernet cable would be larger and heavier than a MBPR.   Maybe you can write Tim Cook and ask him to include a hose reel attachment for the MacBook  
Yeah, Apple is going to shove this FaceBook crap down our throats no matter if we LIKE it or not.  I don't use Twitter, don't have a Twitter account, yet that noise for Twitter gets in the way everywhere in iOS5.   What a waste of time and money.  There are so many more useful and productive things Apple could be having engineers work on.     I wonder when they will add Compuserve and AOL integration?    What about CB radio integration?  Or fax integration?   We need...
The bottom line is this comes down the number of units sold, the costs of parts and production, and what Intel wants to do.   For a MacPro, Apple needs as many cores as it can throw at multi-threaded pro media apps.  To get more cores you have to go multi-processors, or Xeons.  A single i7 might actually be as fast or faster than a Xeon at many tasks, but when you throw in dual processors the Xeons win when doing heavy processing.  The Xeon processors Apple use in...
Let me be the first to post...  "Steve would have never done it this way..."       and  "Tim Cook is sure no Steve Jobs"   Just like every Apple announcement there will be some rumors that were true or close to true, some that were way off mark, and then some stuff that Apple will announce that no one thought of.   Mostly there will be comments from a lot of clueless idiots who will whine about why Apple did not release the product that exactly meets their dream...
LOL - who do you think taught Steve how to cut down supply chain fat and reduce inventory and waste?  = Tim Cook.       All the "second coming of Steve" crap is a joke - do people really think all the great products and progress Apple made in the last 10 years was all done personally by Steve Jobs?   Really?   It takes thousands of Apple employees years to roll out these new products.  One of the best thing Steve did when he returned was to hire smart people and let them...
