 It varies depending on the model. Parts and labor at the Apple Store for mine ran $179. That was a cmbp. I had graphics issues a bit more than a month later, and they credited that toward depot repair. If you have multiple issues, depot repair is around $330. Battery service for the retina macbook pros runs $200 for the 15". I think the 13" is the same, but I'm not positive. I doubt repairs are a huge profit source for Apple. The third party facility has to actually make...
  Quote:If you have sole or partial ownership of a business, you can deduct the amount that it cost to do the "business side" of it. There are similar rules if you're self employed, but you would have to look them up to do so properly. They can change, and as I mentioned it is only the portion that is regarded as being related to that business. You can probably find a more exact explanation by looking up the relevant forms.
 What do you mean lower temperature? Displays are usually described in color temperature by their brightest white. The older Apple LED backlit notebooks had a higher than ideal color temperature or rather higher than was typical for other mediums with the exception of some televisions. It may still have a smaller gamut, but that isn't precisely a function of color temperature.
  Quote:It's a slightly different market in that Aperture had a much lower cost of entry and seemingly attracted a broader range of users than the old Final Cut Pro. I mean I didn't really like Aperture compared to the alternatives. I also wouldn't suggest it for really large catalogs of images, because it adds a lot of extra data. Lightroom requires very little extra room beyond what is needed to store the images themselves.  Ahh I can still remember the old Capture One,...
  Quote:He mentioned doing fine with 4GB of ram before, but I don't see how that's the case. Activity monitor would show a high level of memory pressure just due to browser activity if those windows represent much more than plain text. I can personally notice a pretty significant difference when memory pressure is high, regardless of of what I'm doing. I would say that Snow Leopard was the last time I would have considered 4GB of ram. Even then it was really pushing it,...
They typically maintain some amount of differentiation between the lines. Graphics would be one point. For a lot of things the difference between the two won't make any difference. Things aimed at a broad range of users tend to balance for lowest common denominator scenarios.
 I'm skeptical as to whether they'll actually hit that target, but apart from that Apple is usually around 60 days after intel's official launch. This may be due in part to shipping numbers right at launch. I wouldn't personally anticipate skylake preceding even the next iphone update, especially with intel's track record over the past couple years. It's probably quite difficult to maintain these continued process shrinks.
While I find their targets a little ridiculous, how many times does it need to be stated that nothing works like this? Apple cannot "take themselves private", because they don't own themselves. Basically they would need investors with the cash to buy out existing shares. If they bought them back slowly as some of the more misinformed posters have suggested, this would merely result in outstanding shares that are inflated in value. Those shareholders would still own 100% of...
I'm highly skeptical of suggestions that it will be $10k+, because that goes against Apple's biggest successes. Their successes have pivoted on making things accessible to more people rather than promoting a feeling of exclusivity. In terms of clothing brands, I would view them more like Benetton than Prada. Things Apple makes tend to be priced somewhat high relative to other mass market brands, yet low enough to be accessible a very large number of people. I can't really...
I would imagine their target numbers differ quite a bit. Apple typically has to sell quite a few of a particular product to justify its continued existence.
