  • Carbon fiber inserts could create ultra-thin MacBook display

    gbdoc said:

    It seems as if the Mac fans here are unaware of how Apple computers (not their other stuff, I believe, and certainly not Apple’s “services”) are losing market share, and seriously irritating their user base. The reason: they’re no longer the top-tier products they used to be, which were worth the price. The innards are no longer bestest/fastest/most robust, and the capabilities have not just not kept up, they’ve depreciated. Better, more capable computers can be had for less from Windows competitors. Probably many factors are behind this - the thinness obsession, the iOS-likeness come first to mind - but it’s certainly not because they’re more attractive. Me? I still like my years-old MacBook Air, but much as I’d like something newer and more capable from Apple, there’s not currently a MacBook I’d want to have, most especially at the price they’re asking. I’m also very disappointed at Apple’s quality control, my impression being that consumers are increasingly being used as beta testers. Finally, Catalina’s a deal-breaker for me, too.

    Does it have anything to do with the display technology?
    This is why KOL is garbage today because they're Hallucinating.  Go brag about it somewhere else when it covers topics like this, not the Patents where it's still just a concept!!  AND IS ABOUT THE DISPLAY ONLY!

    Why in THE world do we need thinner?  Answer: we don't!  We need thicker.  Why?  Bigger batteries.  More key travel.  Better cooling.  Enough said.
    Are you people having Thinness Hysteria?  A patent covering about displays being thinner can give you a seizure and having illusions to things unrelated to the topic...

    The iPhone 11 is already 8mm thick and is very elite-friendly, calm down.

    You really had to write 3 massive paragraphs to defend a thin computer for travel, ignoring the fact that Apple has more than one notebook product line, one specifically which has all been about trading features for thinness?  

    My point is that you travel folk don't need a MacBook Pro.  You need a powerful AIR.  Apple should run the AIR over with a road roller to satisfy you, since you'd just as soon type on glass to make your fingers feel good so long as it made your travels happier.  But The Rest of Us don't travel on aircraft daily and because of that we want:

    Thicker
    More Key Travel
    Bigger Battery
    Better Cooling

    ENOUGH SAID.
    Having one of the biggest failures in Apple as your profile picture really speaks for itself.

    But anyway:

    We're not against having a thicker laptop.
    We're not against having a thicker laptop.
    We're not against having a thicker laptop.  

    Having a patent to shrink the display has nothing to do with the overall design.

    (This is the biggest font, if you still can't see then I don't know what to do.)

    Period.  iPhone is getting thicker, MacBook Air is a whole lot thicker for its performance, and the Pro will do the same when it's necessary, which I think is about time.

    Key Travel has nothing to do with your wish, it is about having a new experience first rather than reducing the size of the machine.  Not everyone likes it and some hate themselves for liking it, but your performance can still be stronger with it.  You're hallucinating, simply because you saw the word "Thin" would give you a panic attack, without having any reasonable thoughts of the technology itself.  My advice, go learn how computers work before judging things like some kind of KOL.

  • Review: The 10.2-inch iPad is more of the same, and that's not a bad thing

    The slow processor is the most interesting thing about these new iPads. 

    Historically, Apple always puts their latest chips in new devices, even "low-end" devices like consumer iPads and most notably the iPod Touch. For years analysts would predict that Apple would put slower chips in these units (presumably to save on costs, or to differentiate the lines). Instead they'd get the latest and greatest, but then stay on the shelf without updates for several years at a time.

    This pattern finally broke the the latest release of the iPod Touch, and now these new iPads. The old chips are now "fast enough" and the new chips presumably too expensive. This change in strategy was inevitable, but nonetheless disappointing. 
    If you think about it, the i5-8210Y isn't any faster than the 6th-gen Core-U series, despite being much efficient, it's quite similar to the iPad situation.
    Well, I don’t care what chip is installed or how efficient it is. I care about using the device to do what I need to do and the experience while using it. The iPad is the very best tablet on the market anywhere.
    Well, Apple didn't think it's unusable, otherwise, it will be long gone, so does the MacBook Air.

  • Apple expected to release iPad Pro, MacBook Pro with Mini LED displays

    The fact that LCD is still improving itself and even competitive against OLED is extraordinary.  OLED monitors were never successful and they're just starting on laptops this year.  Maybe the LCD will stay on personal computers until MicroLED becomes mainstream, where OLED will barely take off.
