All I care about is the date since rumors ruin the surprise.
Also PLEASE a new Apple TV with A12x to welcome Apple Arcade.
2) Casual is a ridiculously limited view of what a smartphone can do and what it's used for.
3) I couldn't give a shit what a product is called so long as it has the features I want and need at a price point I find agreeable. They can call it the iPhone Pro Mate S10 Galaxy poop:emoji for all I care.
Can't do both with iPhone...... nor would I want to.
Reminds me of those optical switches used in some keyboards, this concept may be possible to go mass-production.
AMD just released their 12- and 16-core processors on their “mainstream” platforms, I heard they’re throwing 64 cores for HEDTs. Unfortunately they aren’t good at the mobile technology, thus only offering quad-core for laptops.
It’s awkward for laptops, while AMD have no adequate mobile technologies, Intel is falling behind in core counts. You’re stuck either way. Thus, I think moving to ARM is the best hope for the Mac notebooks, skip the last x86 Macs, especially laptops, if you can.
Also, Intel is measuring TDP at their base frequencies, which means 9 Watts maximum for core m’s - at 1.0GHz, probably not including AVX.
not_anton said:I really fail to understand people who complain about specs of the base model. Macbook has 1.5TB SSD and 16GB RAM if you need it. Not enough? A 15” gets you 32GB RAM and 4TB SSD. I bought a 2016 15” with 1TB storage cause 512GB would force me to use external disks and 2TB would be an unused expensive dead space. Now it totally fills my needs. What is the reason you cannot do the same?Base model is for those who come to the shop and buy “one Apple laptop please”. The specs are completely adequate for them.
Didn’t stop those analysts to praise its “functionality, durability, expandability, repairability, and upgreadeability.”

What’s the problem for that? It’s small, reversible and don’t take the bandwidth. MagSafe is proprietary, clunky in comparison, and isn’t that reliable too.
