SMH... More Fusion drives on the entry SKUs? Why on Earth can't Apple transition these EXPENSIVE machines to solid state like the rest of their line up? This isn't even amusing anymore... Apple is hocking an old design that could be dramatically improved with a few simple changes to improve cooling. And still hopelessly stuck on AMD Vega graphics, with no ability to choose. I've said this before, I'll say it again... Tim Cook is the absolute worst thing that ever happened to the Mac. The Mac is dying.

Apple's bean counter mentality, with regard to the Mac, has simply become un-acceptable. This year, in lieu of upgrading desktop iMacs, we will be swapping them out for PC workstations with nvidia graphics. Tim Cook is no Steve Jobs .. He appears to be willing to force Mac users into accepting lower quality hardware to make a miserable few more dollars. Every single Mac that has failed in our shop over the last few years had an AMD graphics solution. In addition, the state of AMD drivers on the Mac is pathetic at best - we have code that works great on even Intel graphics but fails on machines with AMD graphics. We are simply done with this.
I’m not saying that it isn’t happening to you, though. It just isn’t a sign of anything beyond your own use case.
Ask yourself this question ... How long must WebGL 2 stay an "Experimental Feature" in Safari? We have been testing with it .. and haven't seen them move the needle on quality .. one ... tiny ... bit, in the last year. How long are we supposed to wait? When crappy two-year old Android Tablets can provide WebGL 2 support, but a $2800 15" MacBook Pro ... cannot. THAT IS BLOWING IT!!
