    Still remotely hoping for a laptop with MacOS, 17in, matte screen, core i7, 500gb SSD, 16gb ram for less than $4000. Plastic case and thicker is perfect.
    What year do you live in? 2011?
    Plastic is a step down in terms of aesthetics and performance, forget it. 500gb SSD should be the standard.  
    Bring us apple CPUs already.. You're 11 iterations into mobile CPUs that yes, are optimized for mobile devices. Time to bring some bigger chips for the macs

    $4000? lol
  • New SD card format will transfer at nearly a gigabyte per second

    Nice tech however since the iPhone never featured an SD-Card slot and newer macs no longer have an SD-Card slot this article sadly seems little relevant to apple users.
    Apple correctly chose to remove the soon-to-be legacy SD interface from the new mbps, I opted for the Sandisk usb-c to uhs-ii sd card reader giving me the potential of 312MBps. Even if Apple developed their own pcie version for a built-in solution, it wouldn't [i]need[/i] to address such speeds when it was introduced in 2016. With usb-c ports they can outsource the creating and promote high quality TB3 products. The TB design is theirs and Intel's after all

    provided the transactions are processed on the host device
    So, with this statement, I'm now not sure what rules Valve broke initially? This seems to suggest that the way it worked - mirroring the screen on a PC/Mac - was fair game?
    The mirrored software in fact carries out the transaction on a device other than the host device
  • Apple planning lower cost MacBook Air for second quarter of 2018

    Crappy display or not this is excellent. I recently acquired a full spec'd 11" (i7,8GB) . These are easily the best machines to work on 90% of the time. Apple needs to bring the power/battery balance of the macbook air to newer models, I feel like the 2016mbps are good (i'm writing from one) but power hungry because, well, pixels. I'd like to see how it would perform with a 2400x1600 screen edge to edge, a tiny bit thicker to accommodate a BIG battery. Make this 14inch in a 13inch footprint for me Apple
