Probably, but it is also a little bit more subtle than this. For most people, computing is centered around internet and without up to date web browsers you are out in the cold, partly at least. Having the latest OS version will guarantee that you will have the most recent software updates also. So, OK, Apple is not forcing you to update but you will end up doing it anyway because ... this is how it is. It is called evolution. Apple so far allowed Macs of up to 4-5 years...
Personally I don't care; I was just replying to the other poster.
I don't think it will be free but I would not be surprised if it was cheaper than Lion, since this is essentially an iOS-feature port.
Not surprising given that the new OS consists majorly in porting iOS features to the Macintosh. Or so the corresponding Apple page lets me think. This leaves me totally indifferent since I don't own an i-device. Only thing that I find interesting is the new security policy. It seems OK on paper but we will see what it gives in practice.
These benchmarks may also give you an idea about the performance of various Macbook models.
And this is related to "Current Mac Hardware" how exactly? Should not it be in "General Discussion" or even "Future Apple Hardware"?
And you know this... how exactly?
RAM is fairly cheap and getting as much as you can is the best you can do. On the other hand, an SSD is quite expensive but it will speed up disk access each time the system is going to page out. I had recently the opportunity to check out in a shop an iMac and a Macbook Air. The MBA felt really more responsive than the iMac because of the SSD, while its CPU is much slower. It was incredible. Of course the iMac will destroy any MBA in number-crunching but the overall...
The point was not about glossy in general but about the displays in the earlier Macbooks that happened also to be glossy. They were horrible: color rendering, viewing angle, brightness, all horrible. Difference like day and night compared to the Macbook Pro's. I still keep this Macbook and I have first hand experience.
OK but should it be possible for a simple user to change passwords, even with physical access to the machine? I say no, for such operations always an admin password should be required, at the very least. I am curious to see what Apple will do about it.
