Is this article suggesting Apple would release a 13” M3 MacBook Air, but leave the 15” MacBook Air at M2?
If so, I don’t get why Apple would do that.
They’re the same computer, just a bigger screen in one of ‘em.
And, most people ready to purchase the 15” Air would wait if they saw the M3 was in the 13”; they’d know the M3 is just around the corner for the 15”.
forgot username said:OutdoorAppDeveloper said:The Studio makes sense for the iMac Pro users. It is in the same price range and offers big improvements over the last model. iMac 27" users, on the other hand, are out in the cold. Apple has no equivalent option for them. It seems odd that Apple has turned its back on home users who want more than the lowest end product.
It's faster than a 27" iMac, and you're not wedded to buying a new monitor every time you need a CPU refresh.
I know: Analysts are always wrong when it comes to Apple. ...And I have always thought so. BUT, it has been on my mind for the last two years (and I finally heard the same with Jason Snell and John Gruber on podcast) that production in China will someday be a huge problem for Apple. China continues to cause more regional and world problems and postures throughout the Pacific, and no doubt will indeed someday launch its military against Taiwan. No analyst nor Apple exec has even hinted that Apple has a plan for when the shooting starts or the trade penalties hit high gear for ALL of Chinese production. From MacBooks to iPhones and practically all Apple hardware, there is no other place to pick up ALL that production with even one year warning. So, producing NEW categories of Apple hardware in China too? Dang unnerving. Even if Foxconn were Taiwanese-owned, most Foxconn facilities are in an ever increasingly hostile China.
Ordered and hope they're "good." Love the Beats Pro with the ear hooks for running. But for yard work, the earhooks are problematic when using ear-covering protection. So, maybe these will both stay in my ear and not hurt with the ear-muff like protection. Having buds stay in my ears have always been a problem. We'll see.
