Sounds like a solid option.
There are people who will complain about the price, but if tasks are completed at least twice as fast, then that is one less bottle neck in productivity. The real cost is the human element waiting on the computer to finish its task. More work done means better value for the business.
If this is a home purchase, then it is a fun luxury for the person who can afford it, depending on how they plan to use it.

Pay for wasting the courts and Apple’s time...
Loser pays as a general rule of law tho would not be a good idea IMO.
Any 'loser pays' rule should be surrounded by a bunch of conditions, because while it could help dissuade frivolous lawsuits, it may also dissuade legitimate lawsuits. For the latter the offending corporation could just pad the bill and scare off any plaintiff. At the same time, if a lawyer is in the business of organising the class action, in the sense they are the one who initiated it and recruits members, then they should certainly be on the hook, since it then could be considered suing 'for income', as opposed to 'for cause'.
libertyforall said:It is pretty doubtful Apple will release a 5G capable iPhone in 2018 or 2019, given Apple's past delayed approach to a variety of new technologies...
It is sometimes better to be late to the game, but with a solution that is better thought out than everyone who has gone before. 2019 in this case sounds like a reasonable release date for 5G on iPhone.
I wonder how much the small business position is even valid. Brick and mortar stores don’t get access to this sort of information, so I suppose making it harder for online stores helps level the playing feel to an extent.Note, that in certain cases loyalty cards do help physical stores work out customer buying patterns.
Intel drops the ball, AMD picks it up and Apple decides they'd go with ARM. Intel is now in the process of doing damage control.
Apple on the other hand never targeted gamers and has always been a joke for gamers. Deprecating OpenGL and leaving it in a seemingly unmaintained state does not help the game developers who do want to port to macOS. On the other hand, while this is a barrier for a certain number of game developers, that iOS has a healthy selection of games, may mean there is a chance that these games will be ported to macOS. Also, I wonder how many Apple users simply turn to a console for the gaming experience?
Is this a case of 'Visual Studio is dead', long live Visual Studio'? In other words is the rebranded Xamarin Studio the new Visual Studio on all platforms?
The company has resorted to keeping older models on sale as result, in some cases well after they've been pulled from shelves in other countries.
It will be interesting to see if the situation in India forces Apple to think more about the window of acceptable performance degradation? Currently, you are good for about three years of OS updates, on an iPhone, and at that point your should probably evaluate whether that final OS update will lead to more frustration than it is worth. Additionally, what will this mean for the app store and third-party vendors?
