This should be a nice boost to battery life. I'd like to see some kind of stand alone GPU in the 13inch (not that I will ever buy one, I like the 15) but I think for a high end laptop, we should see some low end Nvidia in it, even if it was sharing the system memory still.
Just because a product is "discontinued" does not mean the parts are out of production. Most companies that care about their customers will continue to offer support for the life of the product. I am pretty sure Apple does this, otherwise, I will be switching back to PC in 7 years. 
  As a 15 inch retina user, I am more than happy with my MacBook. However, I have friends with the regular MacBook pros. I wouldn't say there is any difference except the display and SSD. The quality of both are top of the line. But many people prefer the CD drive. I haven't missed mine much but still do time to time.  I think it will be 2 more cycles or so before the retinas take over.    "So you would be willing to pay pull price for a machine that will not be in...
Emergencies do happen in the air, however, during takeoff, the emergencies are much more serious (usually). Clearly there are situations were being at 32000 ft is more serious. But it is much more serious if an engine fails during takeoff, the plane could instantly stall with only hundreds to a few thousand feet for a correction. Or during landing, a wind changes and pushes the plane into the ground, causing the landing gear to fail. Unusual for a large plane, however, it...
   You are both right and wrong. Air resistance is negligible over a short fall. But for long falls the object will reach what is called a terminal velocity. Where the force of air resistance is equal to the force of gravity.    Even a bullet has a terminal velocity which is much slower than the rate at which it was fired. By your argument, the bullet would accelerate forever (wrong). I am not sure if you have ever studied drag but the drag force is not linear. Basically,...
      Allow me, the acceleration of a device is independent of its weight in a vacuum. Everything on earth accelerates at an average of 32.2 ft/s^2. Or 9.81 m/s^2.   Air resistance does play a role but more of a role on terminal velocity. Over a drop of 5-10 feet, like another user said, the air can be ignored due to a small to no role in the impact speed.    That said, the kinetic energy of an object is (1/2)mV^2 where m is mass and velocity is V. So the impact energy is...
Guys, I own a 15'' retina. I don't know what version of OSX I am running, other than that its mountain loin(is that the newest cat?), but i know it doesn't have the newer updates to it. I read before I updated that this releases before 10.8.3 had issues with the video performance and processor performance. Will 10.8.3 go on my macbook without decreasing the performance? Does it fix the issues with the earlier updates? Thank you for the help
I am about to watch the video. But I have a 32gb iphone 5. I find that it doesn't run as smoothly as the 3G and 4 when I first got them (clearly with newer software, these old models slowed down) but for a brand new phone. I am simply OK with the way the iphone 5 runs. I find it to lag here and there for a short time (nothing that is usually too annoying). I guess it is due to the growing complexity of iOS but its far from the near prefect iOS I once knew.  I also must...
Agreed. I ordered mine in late August with no issues.   I get the blue screen of death on windows sometimes (use it for school). But it's nothing short of amazing. Knock on wood
I guess I'll be switching back to pcs then. Cause I want a processor that's powerful and compatible with windows. Stupid move IMO I like ARM in phones Etc Hopefully it's just be like a version of the MacBook Air and not all MacBooks
