Why /g/ needs an i7 to shitpost on 4chan?
Performance stagnated during the last 7 years, even a Core2Duo is 100% usable nowadays.
Intel Core M is more than enough for everyday tasks and only consumes 5W.
Thats why the new macbook is a perfect machine for me.
It's literally the chromebook of Macs
People who want one will get one and there is nothing you faggots can do about it. Seeing it has only made me want the new MacBook Air. It's a product to make the others look better.
Kind of like the Expensive Apple Watch is making the $500 model look cheaper. Apple isn't dumb they know how to sell to people.
i dont need an i7 to shitpost, thats just a plus, i need an i7 for other shit, like editing photos, or videos, or making music, or programming
that thing wont be able to handle any of that, i'm not going to spend that much money on a shitpost machine
The new macbook should be fine for most tasks, it's the price which is an insult to common sense.
If they sold it for 800-900$ it would be an interesting choice as an alternative to laptops and tablets.
Stop fucking posting it the more I see it the more I want it and I really don't need it.
I wish they sold it at $999. I probably would have bought one for that.
The fact that it has the performance of C2D for $1300 to $1800 is not the only thing wrong with it. It has shitty battery life for just a 5W TDP and being mostly battery on the inside. Also, one port. One fucking port and there are thinner devices with full-sized USB 3.0 ports. It's a shitty product that just insults people's intelligence, except for the retards that will buy it.
If you need an i7 to code, your code blows.
Plus the 5xxx series graphics are fucking great, so theres photos and videos done.
Pick one, the other must be shit.
An i7 is overkill for most things. An i5 would be fine. An i3 is pushing it. Fuck the M, it's going to lag like crazy when doing anything more intensive than running a browser and youtube videos.
you get what i was trying to say you nitpicky faggots, that thing is useless for anything other than taking notes or browsing websites
but whatever man, im sick of the idiots on here
Dude, PC is an AMD Athlon X2, the original, 2GHz. Shitty performance, my GPU is an IGP Radeon HD3200 and I use it to watch HD movies.
It's not the CPU evolutions is stagnated, the truth is that you don't need more than this for casual use. Why would I bother buying something better? It just works!
eh, I really think it is going to take 10nm or 7nm for fanless laptops to hit their stride, I am sure a fair bit of performance issues can be alleviated by custom blocks on the SOC. I think the new Macbook is beautiful, but figure if I wait until 10nm (2016) USB-C will be the norm for new devices, HVEC blocks will enable 4K playback and encoding with no issues, maybe Apple we put a better webcam in, and better graphics.
This is what I don't understand.
People yell about the new Macbook not being for "serious use". This is the most hardcore laptop to date. Think about it.
>No moving parts, hinge notwithstanding
>Excepts you to have USB disc drive, AC WiFi, etc
>Keyboard with ultra short travel for faster touch typing
>Expects you to have wireless displays
If you aren't hardcore, you can fuck right off.
>apple has realized how much of dumbfucks their customers are and they'll buy whatever they make, no matter how much of a piece of shit it is
>Performance stagnated during the last 7 years, even a Core2Duo is 100% usable nowadays.
>Intel Core M is more than enough for everyday tasks and only consumes 5W.
>Thats why the new macbook is a perfect machine for me.
>All this damage control
why are people on /g/ unironically defending this thing? it's a retarded design, it doesn't mean everything apple makes is garbage, just this piece of shit (and the trashcan) that nobody on /g/ was buying anyway
Look at windows users with a systray 3/4 the length of the taskbar. That's why they need an i7 and 32Gb of RAM.
Mac users just need the newest shit for bragging rights.
Either way, if you haven't figured out that 80% of /g/ is not what you'd consider "technical" people, then lurk moar.
And the ULV, phone RAM iMac
and the other iMacs
and the MBP
and the 11" MBA
That leaves the overpriced 13" and 15" MBPrs and the 13" MBA, which are nothing special these days.
It's shit. Don't like it? Don't buy it.
Fuck these stupid mountain dew drinking fags. Go rage about being able to play crisis on an i7 for years than actually getting any other type of work done. Go on, play your games, feel superior and get a mircrosoft certification at the best buy geek squad.
to may toe - to mah toe
I'm of the opinion those who say that don't even know what they're saying and only say it because it aounds like a nice "techy" justification to fit in with /g/
I use my machine for audio production and that only runs an i5. if you were just doing day to day sort of shit like web browsing and an office suite a dual core Pentium will handle that no worries.
oh yeah, forgot about the iMac, but that's a given, they've always been shit
the other shit you listed is only garbage because it's overpriced, at least they aren't like the new MB or trashcan that literally have no fucking idea what their target market wants anymore
I don't need an i7 to shitpost on 4chan. I need an i7 to handle my natural language processing assignments. They are seriously computationally intensive, especially given that they are done in languages like Ruby and Python, rather than native code.
I wish I had an i7. Unfortunately, all I have is an i5, and a laptop i5 at that.
Some of us aren't writing hello world.
I was honestly just shitposting but I do see a lot of users on here running overspecced gayman shitboxes to do nothing but run a lightweight operating system and shitpost on an imageboard.
What the fuck kind of programming work does /g/ in general do anyway that they take so long to compile they need i7s? I'm not even trying to bait here, I've never seen anything of value posted on this board.
This new Core Y is super decent, performance is between a Haswell i3 and i5, but now you don't need a fan and it consumes less energy, which means more battery life (or thinner laptops).
It's not for me since I need performance for Video/Audio editing and casual gaming, that's why I have a rMBP.
But if I were to choose a laptop for a student, my parents or someone that will use the machine to edit text files or watch youtube videos, it would be this macbook.
yet /g/ thinks the new macbook has the same performance as a raspberry pi
/g/ has the same technical knowledge as a soccer mom who buys computers at best buy
Shitposting from my cr-48 running an Intel Atom.
Works for me running Trisquel 7. I'll never pay more than $150 for a laptop. If I need high performance I've got a desktop machine that still only cost me $700 because paying for pre-built moneypits is for faggots.
I have a custom built FX-9590/R9 290x workstation at home, and a 2013 MBA (256gb SSD).
If I do any studio work, I use the MacBook Air. Sure the screen color accuracy is shit, but once I see that lighting and exposure is on point, it just serves as the vessel that holds my photos. I'll tether to it and it's powerful enough to dump the tether captures straight to an external.
I think that many of you underestimate how powerful processors are now. This new MacBook literally satisfies an entire market of computer users that most of you ironically now fit into. I bet this thing can even play fucking CS.
Forgot to add: also have a G75VW with a 660m GPU and a 3.0ghz i7 for mobile rendering if I'm doing a shoot that we might need to edit onsite. Also had the screen swapped out for the LG model, which was more accurate than the standard glossy screen.
Runs fast, don't even notice a difference in browsing. Also battery on this bad boy lasts an average or 5 hours for me.
Maybe if I was running Windoze it would be shitty, I wouldn't know I don't support proprietary software.
> I bet this thing can even play fucking CS.
lmao of course it does! this HD5300 will play basically anything on low settings, some gayness like LOL or Dota will run at medium 60fps on Bootcamp with no problem.
Seriously though, something like this would have been perfect if they allowed you to at least use the usb port separate of the charger.
This could have been my new studio machine since my gear is already so heavy and every ounce counts.
Fuck off OP, I own a Macbook Air, and even I can see that this new Macbook is a steaming pile of shit.
>1.1GHz Intel Core M CPU
>Charges from a fucking USB port
>Single USB port for fucking everything
>It's a glorified iPad, minus touch, with a keyboard
The real kicker though is the price.
>$1800AUD on the Apple store
I hope they realize how stupid this shit is and kill it after this generation. A 12" Retina Macbook Air would have been perfect, and would have sold me.
Core 2 Duo may be OK for browsing, in theory. I created 2 websites using a T8100 shitmachine, I'll never go without my i7.
Don't forget the i7 U mobile is nothing more than a desktop i3.
3 Gigashit GPUs, one MSI, ROG bridge, why? Also, why quad SLI, you better sell them if these are old ones and get a 980 or 2.
Mobile i7s are beasts, beating a desktop i5 in multithreading performance with half the TDP. Unfortunately most laptops have shitty GPUs, especially when it comes to Apple. 750M is outdated, welcome to 2015. 850-950M we go, Maxwell time.
>i dont need an i7 to shitpost, thats just a plus, i need an i7 for other shit, like editing photos, or videos, or making music, or programming
>i7 for programming
oh my god my fucking sides
Even a Wal-mart shitbox can satisfy the needs of most computer users (facebook and office applications). Saying the new MBP fills the roles of most computer users is pointless.
That PC actually makes use of its shiny. The green LEDs makes the entire system eco-friendly, while the blue LEDs on the liquid cooler makes it run supercool thus allowing huge thermal capacity for extreme overclocking.
I kinda agree with you anon, the Air line with the core U series needs a better display, since the performance is decent.
This new Macbook is nice, but if you need performance, it's shit. The display is good though.
Why don't you go for the Pro?
A Pro just doesn't appeal to me. I bought the MBA for the battery life, which is severely diminished on the Pro line.
Plus I don't game on it, so I don't need a discrete GPU, nor the better CPU, so paying >$400 more seemed pointless.
I actually tried out the MBA and rMBP side by side when I purchased mine. The UI was so much smoother on the MBA.
Granted I was comparing display models, but I compared the Activity Monitor on both machines, and both were using more
or less the same amount of resources.
I can't even play Civ V beyond pleb tier settings on Iris integrated on my MBP so I don't want to hear about the merits in the iGPU.
>yfw Apple ditches the dGPU on the 15" Pro later this year.
>Lenovo uses Core M in Thinkpads
"awesome, great, 10/10"
>ASUS uses Core M in Zenbook
"awesome, great, 10/10"
>Apple uses Core M in MB
BIGGEST SCANDAL EVER, BLUNDER OF THE CENTURY!!!!!!!
nice going /g/
Funny enough I used to have that MBA as well. It's slower than my phone yet it runs Yosemite much, much better than my Haswell rMBP13 does.
That Nvidia 320M really does wonders for all those UI effects.
The base model rMBP 13` is $1299, now they have broad well chips with better battery life, they go up to 10 hours just like the MBA easily.
Also, we are talking about retina display here anon, that's why the UI is smoother on the MBA, low resolutions = smoothie.
>it's going to lag like crazy when doing anything more intensive than running a browser and youtube videos.
The users won't do anything more with it than run a browser and watch youtube.
Please understand you NIGGER JEWS that OS X will not perform by the windows standards you have learned and picked. OS X will compress used prcocesses as noted with the maverick upgrade and will continue to run smooth you sheckle gentoo fucks.
>The Intel graphics these days are pretty good
No they're not, they're absolute dog shit.
>I'm sure that there's enough power for OSX stutter free
Then you're in for a big surprise because OS X stutters a fuck load on Retina MacBooks.
what the fuck are you doing on your macbook then? Drinking mountain dew and trying to install crisis?
Stop... just stop... atleast use an old ass quad core...
This, if you suck that hard that your code cannot run on a p4 you fail at life.
I dont understand the hate for the mac pro, it is designed to be space/power efficient, not cost efficient.
It only draws 270W for the 12 core model for fucks sake, an equivalent pc would draw 700+
I have a custom built rig, I'm just not so jaded about Apple to not see it's use and target market.
