 That's the point.  Until someone does it, you really don't know it can scale to i7 performance levels.  I'm finding that the ARM is fast enough on the iPad for anything except for the heavy lifting I do on the Mac whether that's hobbies like photography or work. Saving a couple hundred bucks to double the time it takes to do stuff doesn't strike me as a good trade. Finally, ARM was supposed to have taken over the server market by now.  Pundits were claiming that the 64...
One thing i'll say about the viability of ARM replacing Intel is that few years ago a long day was 300 photos.  Today, as an amateur, I shoot 1500 for a day of soccer tournament.  For wedding photographers 3000 for a day is not absurdly high.  As fast as SSDs, memory and CPUs have gotten it's still as much effort to process a day's worth of photographs as before.   Pick pretty much any computer supported hobby and you see the same story.     ARM hasn't been proven to...
LOL, this is when its most likely to happen...
Meh, seems like worrying about a company that is skating to where the puck was a decade ago when the phrase elicited excitement. Today, Apple's presentation and announcement style is different. We're not on the edge of our seats salivating for that phrase from Steve anymore.
I had a pretty nifty defender for a while but eventually stopped playing all MMOs.  You'd have to bootcamp buy you could try Champions Online.
Lol. This would be like my neighbor suing me and then being surprised and hurt I won't lend him my lawnmower anymore.
 Valve obviously disagreed since there's Steam on the mac and there are many recent titles/ports for OSX of top PC games. For that matters Apple disagrees since they still list gaming performance as an important aspect of overall MBP performance. We may not be buying macs to primarily game but many DO game on the Mac and it's a viable platform even without boot camping.  If there was zero interest we'd have zero games on Steam.  Instead the catalog of games continues to...
 This is such BS.  The overwhelming majority of the cases is gaming and the difference is going to be about 15% between native PCIe x16 and over TB. Performance is still FAR better than the performance of even the new Intel IGPs. "Real performance losses only become apparent in x8 1.1 and x4 2.0, where the performance drop becomes noticeable with around 15%....Contrary to intuition, the driving factor for PCI-Express bus width and speed for most games is the framerate, not...
What's dumb is it's not a particularly good logo for the purpose. It looks like a western attempt at stylized Chinese calligraphy in that setting. Which is dumb since anyone Chinese would know it's just weirdly shaped curves with no meaning...it's not like its all that recognizable as a fingerprint. What is it supposed to be anyway? Stylized rice paddies? What does it have to do with the age or history of the institution?
$140 isn't bad for a dock.
