I'm sitting on a 13" Retina display MacBook Pro of 2011 vintage. I've replaced the battery, I've changed it to SSD from spin drive, I've over-RAMed it (at 16 MB), and yesterday I used Aperture to process RAW Christmas photos on MacOS Sierra. So, with less ability to upgrade the machines on the market today, what incentive does the current crop of MacBooks offer me? Slightly faster processor? That's it. Therefore, until Apple snaps-back to "user oriented designs" (where upgradability is design principle no. 1), I'm looking at 1/3 to 1/2 the price Windows machines for the work I need from a laptop. Aperture is obsoleted by Apple so the software is not a holding point (Lightroom will do).
sad when you read this. I loved Apple laptops.
Isn't Tim all about Customer "Sat" (Satisfaction)? How the hell do you explain the shuttering of the wireless products in light of this other than "but really we don't care?"
With all the attention Apple received over the past year on the issue of security and the iPhone platform, how in the heck could this get out of Apple? One would think the first thing QA would look at is the security system of the iOS and companion software like iTunes. I mean, really? (Time for a seance to raise Steve.)
