Those monster windows “laptops” with 17” plus screens, an inch thick, plastered with ports and extra keys. Mostly marketed for “Gaming” capabilities, I think are truly ridiculous. I’ve only seen posers with them, always plugged in, doing simple web and office duties.
The power users (generating live graphics, mixing audio etc) bring iMacs (now pros) to my one day event gigs.
jimh2 saidI'd like to have seen some ports returned, but that is not that big a deal.
with 2 of these, I have 4x usb3, Ethernet, 4K hdmi, sd card, along with charging input looped. They are on a short cable making connections easy (lift, look, rotate). 2 ports left for dedicated thunderbolt 3 or usb-c devices.
Its a feature!
Awesome. Truly pro. As an early adopter of the new generation (late 2016 mid pack), I’ve been very happy with touchbar, keyboard (hasn’t been abused yet), retina screen, and it has felt decently snappy for on location video editing of red carpet & non streamed live switched footage for news feeds at events. It’s the h264 compression bottleneck that can leave us impatient sometimes.
6 cores, 32gb, and a refresh of graphics are doubtless a kick in the rear.
that 4tb ssd has got to be a big chunk of that.
then apple’s ram prices are of course inflated.
here’s my question (I’ll check these upgrade prices myself)...
will drive & ram be user upgradable?
OWC has been a reliable $ saver for me for well over decade of macs, hope that’s an option.
