  • IBM seeing great returns on over 277,000 Macs and iOS devices issued to employees

    I love Macs and have had one at home for 25+ year. But, I rely on Excel a lot at work and Excel just sucks on a Mac, and it's just not worth emulating it when I can just use a cheap W10 machine.

    Ummm, no.  Microsoft developed Excel for the Mac, and later ported it to Windows.  It is still a native application in MacOS and “emulating” is not required.  If you really have had a Mac for 25+ years, you would know that Excel on the Mac used to be much more advanced than the Windows version and in more recent years the updates have not always remained in sync.  Given the capabilities of Excel for Mac, you’d have to be doing some rather esoteric edge-case tasks in Excel in order for the Windows version to offer any advantage.

    Ugh, I hope "Q4" is wrong. I've got the money for a new MBP burning a hole in my pocket but I'm waiting for the new ones. Everyone's been saying "June" up until this point.
    Apple's Q4 is July-September.

  • Low-end Intel Kaby Lake processors detailed, MacBook Pro version absent

    Does Apple still have an arrangement with Intel to get certain processors before other companies? In the early days of switching over to Intel they did have such an agreement.
    If Intel will be doing fab for the A-Series processors, maybe Apple would have included preferential access to Intel's processors as part of the agreement?
