Daily reminder that no competitor whatsoever has yet made a viable alternative to the Apple MacBook Air.
If I remember correctly, there are some modern thinkpads that have 2 batteries - one external and one somewhat weak internal battery. You can hot swap out the battery without having to plug it in, thus allowing you to use the laptop for days at a time if you carry a few extra batteries with you. Good for someone who needs to take his laptop with him anywhere, even in the middle of the fucking Sahara.
It's called the Chromebook Pixel 2.
Daily reminder that not every invention or reinvention is good.
What's wrong with the surface? I'm wanting to buy one or at least one with all the features it has but made by apple.
I'm a medical student and the app store is phenomenal with extremely accurate and interactive apps. The only issue is no way to really use note taking apps or even styli that do not ruin the ipads screen.
Huh, i was under the impression they were all making viable macbook air alternatives
At least thats what the apple drones have been bitching about since the air released, how every other computer company is copying their design
>removes even more features
>reinventing the laptop
For one thing it doesn't even have a fucking hinge on the keyboard, making it the most uncomfortable shit in the world to use on your lap. It's gimmicky garbage, get a real laptop.
>I am going to pre-emptively dismiss relevant objections without explanation or justification
the word "no" does not invalidate anything, stupid. and you didn't even mention the shitty keyboard.
>implying netbooks are a new invention
>no Wacom pen
>Intel battery life
>cannot detach the keyboard
>desktop interface on a portable device
>too expensive for what you get
The exhaust heat from the laptop doesn't have proper ventilation on the lap. This means that heat goes into the thighs and surrounding area. The testicles are extremely sensitive to temperature and the normal mechanism to regulating heat is useless when you're covering it with a laptop.
in the past revolutionary products took over the market and got the company producing them a huge market share.
macbooks still hover somewhere around 7 %.
fuck you moot, just fuck you.
That's because it has a weak Intel processor. Making something weaker to minimize its problems doesn't make it better. Meanwhile, the Galaxy Note Pro is a powerful Android tablet instead of a weak one without being more than $800.
Actually they can carry up to three, the normal batter that can be a strunk 9 cell (like 10 hours of use) a ultrabay battery (the size of a optical drive) which adds aroun 3 hours, and on a few models the slice battery that goes below the laptop that adds another 12 hours of so, you can compute for a day straight without problems, maybe more, I recall some /g/entoofag getting almost 40 hours straight
That's just how laptops work. Your legs don't normally move that heat as quickly as laptops generate it.
If the heat is going into your thighs, that's not a good thing if you keep your laptop there for an hour or so everyday.
The energy absorbed into your thighs get radiated up and down the legs. When you keep your laptop on your lap as a habit, that constant energy is going raise the temperature of the area of the body.
I'm not disputing that
I'm saying that it's not like your blood is going to be hanging around in your legs waiting to get heated up and then go to your groin where it stays long enough for it to dissipate
