  • Many people like MACs because we actually get 5 years out of them. Then we give them to others because they actually still work. Sure support stopped. But ya know. Little kids don’t care. I have yet to have a single Dell besides a $2500+ optiplex last near that. And it only got near it. I know you cater to kids that replace everything in less than 2 years but there a good business reasons for the longevity you are pretty much guaranteed with an Apple purchase.

  • I needed a new Mac now, and I have to say I am beyond happy with my purchase of the 10 core i9 w/5700 xt 16gb. It's fast AF for video editing and 3d rendering. The big difference for me is I am not a tech repair guy and being on a pc setup for over 20 years wore me out. I had issues daily and I don't want to work on my computer like a car. I love that I can sit down and work and not worry about anything.

  • Watching Rossman and his description of the 50V next to the cpu lines, the under dimensioned capacitor segment repeated in several places etc, it is obvious for me that apple has a problem with the Pareto principle. The few that did the job are somewhere else.

  • OK Linus, if we want an iMac, you wait 2 years and eat grass during that time.... not sure one can agree with your opinion. ARM will come with the laptops first .... BTW, the 7 Core is the best to buy... Permit me not to agree... Written on a 27inch iMac. today. If you need one between now and 2022, what is your recommendation ? Your title does not match your recommendation if you need one now.

  • The price......

    FortuneFortuneIl y a mois
  • The "Nano Glass" does diminish sharpness and contrast, making it slightly not as sharp as the non-Nano Glass model. Why? Because that's the price one pays for a no-glare screen. Also, why is everyone saying when apple comes out with "its own silicon" when nVIDIA owns ARM now?

  • Not a problem, if MacOS support dies on Intel, just install Windows 10. I buy apple products mostly for the hardware and to be fair apple silicon will not provide for bootcamp so you are stuck with just one OS forever. Intel Macs provide for alternate operating systems long past official EoL support
