  • Benchmarked: Razer Blade Stealth versus 13-inch MacBook Pro with function keys

    Why is this review based on price and not similarly spec'd machines? Does anyone who buys Apple buy because they're competitive in price? We all know Apple will cost more, I'd think a better review would be seeing how two machines similar in specs perform against one another.
    Many people buy computer base on the price. Especially parents buy computer for their kids. Not even can or willing to pay the 50% Apple tax. 

    Seriouly, if both machines can run MacOS flawlessly, how many people will still buy Apple? Apple is always a hardware company. People willing to pay extra for the quality and the OS. But is the quality still here?

    I am still using my 2010 17” MacBook Pro which I pay big bucks for. It is now slow but going strong. If I buy a 2018 MBP, will it still be running in 2026? I doubt it.

    Apple sacrifice usability for thinnest or the look. Why a professional laptop need to be that thin?

    User can’t easily recover HD data if the motherboard is dead. This is not really professional oriented. In the past, when someone’s computer die, they just put the old HD to a new one and keep working. Can we do that with new MBP?

    Why a professional laptop don’t have the most common connector in the world and need to take a dock everywhere?

    Why a professional laptop has a such unreliable keyboard that is so easily stop working and need to replace with half of the laptop?

    Why the i9 can’t even run in full speed for 20 seconds or risk to toast the CPU?

    The answer is simple. MBP is not really designed for professional user anymore. It is for Prosumer market. It is for people with money who careless about functionality. It is for people care for the looks.

    Just look at how frequent Mac Pro get updates can tell you how much Apple care about the professional market. 


    Wow, you really took what I said and worked it into what you want to say about your definition of "Pro" being the only definition that matters - the internet is full of self-serving moronic arguments like that. Thanks, though, for recapping what I've read a zillion times by people who think they are the only PRO users in the world and Apple is only about "the butt hurt" for them. [rolls eyes]

    Apple TV was without a doubt the worst Apple product I ever bought. 
    Odd that you don’t actually like Apple kit, but keep buying it. 🤔
    And then come on here and tell the world, over and over and over again, how utterly disappointing Apple products are.

  • Comparing the new 2018 12.9-inch iPad Pro versus the older model

    One of the early signs indicating MacRumors was going downhill was the inane competition amongst its more juvenile and immature members to be the first to post something negative.

    That attitude can fuck right off.
    Check out his comment history. It’s literally 201 negative comments. Mike, can we get the dislike button back yet?
    Some I think use the "Informative" button to indicate "dislike," though I agree an actual dislike button was good here. At least, however, there's good and often quite strong moderation in these forums which I hope means our little haven won't succumb to the path of MR.
