Is this a bad joke?
Its seriously their retina screen, in a $199 Netbook, for $1299
Intel M 1.1Ghz in their new Macbook? Fucking bullshit, for a little while they were slowly increasing their hardware specs, now they're going back on their hardware specs to see far they can go, while increasing profits!
>using the built-in camera on your computer anyway
This is literally only ever meant to be used by grandmas, and they won't know the difference anyway.
If this shaved off even 0.1 millimeters and/or 1 cent on the final pricing, I say good riddance.
Apple doing their thing, as always.
Very overpriced crap on the low end of their lineup, very overpriced crap on the high end of their lineup.
Very rarely, anything actually significant is different from other products.
i only use my macbook for browsing facebook and play candy crush saga. but i will buy the next macbook, because i like apple.i dont even know that much about computers, but for apple its worth the effort
I don't know. /g/ is trashing it all around, but from what I'm reading Intel is claiming this new Core M is a few times better compared to a few years old i5. So, they imply this fanless CPU is somehow competitive for the portable market.
Waiting to see some benchmarks before joining the crowd.
Core M is less-powerful than Core i5, which the MBAs already have.
So with this pushing more pixels than the MBA with less power, it's simply going to stutter doing intensive shit.
Yea, and so is my late '08 i7 920 desktop computer. It cost quite a bit, but not as much as an Apple. Same for muh late '07 laptop.
It's not that Intel and related computer parts are bad. But the deal that Apple offers on them is quite silly.
Alright ill take the bait, what exactly does MBP offer that a different manufacturer doesn't? No, saying it slays $300 pc's doesn't count, same price point only. Genuinely interested in why.
That's true, to a point.
480 kind of universally looks terrible, especially as screens get nicer. I mean, imagine using this laptop for both ends of a video chat, 480p stretched across a screen like that would be wretched.
1.) the construction was nicer
2.) the display was better and not touch screen
3.) can't beat applecare honestly.
4.) An operating system with good HiDPI that isn't linux
5.) A BSD environment that isn't linux
Well, this is a tablet/notebook CPU. Is Intel bulshitting when they say they expect it to perform better than some older i5s?
It's clearly not made for doing heavy shit on it, if it has a tablet/notebook CPU. I suppose it's an expesive email/web browsing machine. Anything graphically intensive on high resolution will freeze and stutter like shit.
