What did they get so right /g/? Apple sets the trend again for the other companies to try and copy.
Thanks based Tim Cook
It is how Apple works. Remove as much as possible in the new model so they can add it later. The notebook is not bad but like all Apple products it costs a lot. Don't like it, don't buy it?
Ok great enjoy carrying your desktop everywhere & your 3 hour battery life. I'll be at Starbucks on my new gold macbook drinking a latte and pulling bitches left right and centre ;)
The MacBook Pro has power at the cost of portability
The Macbook Air has the balance between portability and still usable performance
The Macbook is literally a starbucks facebook machine
Apple knows its audience though.
>phone doesn't have an sd card slot
Fucking shit, dropped, fuck it
>laptop with one fucking port
Oh, fantastic, take all muh money
This product is another class example of a product made for tech illiterate people who want to look cool while using something and care more for that than they do for functionality
>HP will copy this bullshit in 2017
>Lenovo Chinkppad in 2019
>Apple will be unifying their iPad and Macbook line then, since no one needs keyboards any way
The day all laptops become like this is the day I commit suicide
Because Lenovo is a stupid company where the people making the decisions have no damned idea what makes a good computer and what makes a bad computer. Ironically, despite also copying certain trends that Apple sets, Lenovo is unable to follow one Apple slogan: "Think different."
The old-style ThinkPads that were made when IBM still owned the product line is different. I'm sure Lenovo's thinking was, "Oh, no! The ThinkPads are totally unlike the stuff that Apple is selling! Screw 4:3 displays, screw 1400x1050 high resolution, screw IPS panels, screw good keyboards, screw road warrior quality!"
>logo not backlit
>one usb port
>dongle cost $79
Apple is gonna make a lot of money off this one.
Well, as usual its a pretty design. I feel they should have included another USB-C port on the other side. Also, its a bit expensive when compared to the Zenbook UX305 (about half as expensive).
Didn't Asus beat apple to this trend by releasing a notebook thinner than this shit, stronger cpu, and cheaper? Or how about the Chromebook pixel 2? Guess Apple will get all credit for doing nothing.
>Having to buy an adapter to use fucking USB

Haven't you ever heard of helicopters before
Windows user here, but I'm going to play some devil's advocate or whatever that shit is called. Hardware doesn't necessarily refer the internals (CPU, RAM, HDD, GPU, etc) and this is especially true with laptops. Unlike desktops, laptops have to be judged on far far more than their internal hardware. Screen, overall design, build quality, battery life, ports, keyboard/mouse, accessories, etc, etc are just as important as the stuff inside if not more. Depending on your needs, the outside can be much more important than the inside. Why do you think macs sell so well? Even if they aren't THAT magical, the advertising (which apple is absofuckinglutely amazing at) makes it seem so. Things like "unibody aluminum enclosure", "edge to edge glass display" (apple displays are usually of higher quality too, offering better resolutions, better colors and brightness etc), "glass multi touch trackpad gestures", there's just a much higher sense of quality that comes with the higher price tag. Same thing applies for the OS. Made to be used by anyone and made specifically for the hardware (they often advertise that their batteries are much better and that they use them better because they can tailor to specific hardware). In a device that's made to be mobile and make an impression of quality, the internals are last on the list. Most people buying macbooks don't need the bleeding edge of hardware. Not including the mac pros and the larger screened macbook pros with better graphics, the average user with a 13 inch macbook pro just goes on facebook, itunes, and whatever other specialty lightweight programs they use. Nothing insane needed. Anyway, /reasons to buy a mac.
>High resolution IPS panels are now common in ThinkPads
Really? I thought most were TN and REALLY shitty
But you are right, IBM had some major fuckups since 2000, don't forget the deathstars
Oh wow, three problems! The entire line is ruined!
Seriously, that's not the point. Every computer can have design flaws. The point is that Thinkpads were designed with a practical mindset. They were fairly powerful, had a huge number of ports, and the user could repair or replace ANYTHING on the device. They had 4:3 and 16:10 screens long after it was unfashionable because they valued practicality over playing videos. IBM completely disregarded sexiness and made tools. Even if they had flaws, the concept was perfect.
IBM has been run by a pack of morons for almost two decades, but they made great computers.
So even if IBM's Thinkpads had technical problems, the idea was great. Even if Lenovo's Thinkpads are technically perfect, they're a shitty idea.
I also think you're exaggerating the technical problems, but that's another story.
If you're willing to ignore the other shitty 'features' the screens are pretty nice now.
Ironically Apple are still using 16:10.
Coming from an X220 owner what's wrong with other business laptops
>>If you're willing to ignore the other shitty 'features' the screens are pretty nice now.
Too bad but i can't ignore chicklet keyboards and no trackpad buttons
Also no bios mods possible on the newest models

Why do you want a laptop where you can't use the charger and a flash drive at the same time without an adapter?
>The MacBook Pro has power at the cost of portability
Are you saying the Macbook Pro isn't portable? Are Mac users less in shape than an emaciated Sudanese refugee at a UN feeding center?
A BIT expensive? Compared to a machine with similar specs, half the price, three times the USB ports, an SD card slot, and an HDMI port?
I hate both of them because they both put form over function, but they're not even in the same league.
I guess you haven't used laptops for very long because the typical light and thin options for laptops were just shitty atom models with mini keyboards and non-existant trackpads and terrible screen resolutions.
getting a first-gen product from any company is a bit dumb, but I'm sure by the 2nd-3rd gen this new macbook will be popular like all the other ones over the past ten years.
Fully fanless design, and intel can't into low TDP
These chips are barely faster than an A8X or the new Tegra and Exynos, despite being built on the best 14nm process and are fucking huge, and cost +250 for a 1000 tray.
