Well this is interesting... If you think you want a tablet to replace your windows laptop... look at an iPad and next to is is a 11" Macbook Air at 899. and a 13' at $999.  You've looked at the iPad and thought while good, it's not for you... because for a couple hundred dollars more you get the keyboard, and the larger screen and the zippy performance.  You see the better construction and all the headaches you've had with your Dell/HP/Lenovo laptop, and you say, I'd be...
killed time going to lunch with my beloved, and updating to Yosemite at the same time Came back, and now I'm downloading 8.1(3 hours remaining... getting peaks of 1Mpbs, but the 10 second samples show predominantly 100-200KBps) Tick tock... Off to do an errand.
from my mac's iTunes.... (just because I'm about to spend the day driving), it's not even allowing connections.  well... We're Waiting!
At this point, you are in the point of diminishing returns.  AAPL can't double in size again faster than the market (heck, it IS the market;-)It's 'safer' to just invest 'carefully' with AAPL (limited growth, acceptable income), and get back into small/midcaps. and any index fund that doesn't have big investments 'against' AAPL;-) Remember, Apple sells 1 tangible product (iPhone and don't own a 50+ percent market advantage), and arguably target only 25% of the human race....
I would normally disagree (and I'll niggle a little... that 'users' don't need access, but prosumers do), but there has to be a hobbyist level system path.  The Mac Pro isn't that.  The mini should have more user expandability than disk drives (especially since you got 2 TB2s for that sort of expansion.   Memory is the next click, and then after that is CPU and Graphics. Sigh. The other side of me is basically thinking Apple is looking at these as computing units.   You...
  The teardown will be important.  they definitely are no touting the end-user ability to open up the base anymore.If you can replace the internal PCIe drives on the high end.  that would be a good thing (TM),   But I would argue a 256GB SSD PCIe drive internal and TB2 external drives should give you enough storage umph for colo/server work.   Thebest thing about a mini is it's Power/Thermal footprint.   TB2 RAID drives should saturate any i5 data wise. And we'll have to...
That's what 3rd parties are for. 99% of the public doesn't need a reader.  why build it into the base?
I think they are trying to get every price point a TouchID.  As long as every 8.x feature works on a Mini 3, it's a viable solution.  Once they start limiting SW features, that's when it's a sucky move. As for the 16 and 64, I think you're looking at people's use cases, and not what Apple wants to sellApple wants to sell iTunes Match, Radio, and iCloud storage.   16GB is perfect for that.Those who don't want that need at least 64GB. I thought what they did with the Mini 2...
I dunno... The pricing does basically eliminate the iPod Touch, which I think has just been shown the door. I think you're looking at a battery issue for most of the feature the Air 2 got.   Next year, when the networking chips are less hungry and the 8X gives way to a an 8Xs, maybe you'll see feature parity (or at least no more slippage in features)
and in a strange way, this is a good thing. Nexus will further  segment high end Android sales,  and Google's ecosystem split Samsung's ecosystem. In the end, all phones will be as good as Apple, or terrible. In terms of 'phone/computer' capabilities.  Metcalf's law will drive future sales. It will be the network(cloud) ecosystem that will drive future sales.  And Apple controls the ecosystem better than Android (in this world 2 << 1), The eventual migration will be to the...
