These threads are so valuable!
i used to think Apple was doing okay until I realized that they are ignoring the valuable market of "guys who buy the cheapest possible generic computer with no regard for design or aesthetics, then never replace it sooner than eight years."
Also, I see that because Schiller didn't dedicate 90 minutes to listing precisely how many of each model they sold, they must be hiding a terrible truth. I expect them to close and return the money to the shareholders any day now.
Actually, I eagerly await the companion piece to this review, looking at the 13" model. I really hope AI gets numbers for the high-end model.
I am a MacBook user, and have spent hundreds of hours writing code on mine. I happily trade a zillion ports and CPU for its super light weight. For me the form is the function.
I have a Mac Pro, which does compile about 2x as fast, but usually I prefer the couch and the MacBook to my desk and the big fast machine.
Different folks work differently and have different values.

I appreciate and value top-quality hardware, more than most people, but I think Chromebooks, junkers or otherwise, are just fine for schools. Especially for poorly funded public schools. The best tool in the world might not be the best tool for a particular job.
